Hobart Hurricanes are set to host the Brisbane Heat at Bellerive Oval, Hobart for another epic encounter in the Big bash league 2019. Both the sides will take on each other for the second time in this tournament. Hobart Hurricanes previously won that rain-hit match by 15 runs at Queensland.

Hobart Hurricanes are at the top of the chart with 16 points in the campaign so far. They have won eight games while lost two in the process. Hurricanes lost their last match in against Sydney Sixers by nine wickets. They would be hoping to bounce back from that last defeat.

Brisbane Heat, on the contrary, are placed at the second last spot in the points table with just seven points to their name. They have won only three games while they lost six games in this campaign so far. Heat have to make amends to bring themselves back on track and would be eyeing to defeat the Hurricanes in the upcoming contest.
