Riding on the performances of their bowlers, the Hurricanes will look to curtail Brisbane Heat's top-heavy batting unit which boasts of Chris Lynn.
Despite possessing good balance within the side, Brisbane Heat is yet to click as a unit and would hope for a complete performance to kickstart their campaign. With two valuable points on offer for both sides, one can expect loads of entertainment from the likes of Chris Lynn and D'Arcy Short. Here are a few tips to help you pick your Dream11 team for HUR vs HEA.

HUR vs HEA Playing XI Updates
No changes are expected from the Hurricanes in spite of a loss to the Stars. On a tough wicket, the Hurricanes were able to hold their own as they lost by just four runs through DLS. They have a very balanced side in their midst with D'Arcy Short and Ben McDermott being crucial to their cause. Caleb Jewell and David Miller have also chipped in with a few cameos while George Bailey assumes the role of finisher. They have a long batting unit as well with James Faulkner and Nathan Ellis capable of scoring quick runs as well. However, the focus would be upon Riley Meredith, who has been the standout bowler for them this season. Along with Qais Ahmed, Meredith will look to provide the breakthroughs in the middle overs at the Bellerive Oval.
Possible XI: Short, Milenko, McDermott (C&WK), Miller, Jewell, Bailey, Faulkner, Ellis, Qais, Rose and Meredith.
After an abject batting performance against the Scorchers, one would expect a change or two in the Heat playing XI. Although both Bryant and Heazlett haven't scored many runs, both of them should be given another chance. Tom Banton and Chris Lynn are their best bets with the bat while Matt Renshaw's recent form also holds him in good stead. Mark Steketee could be given the axe with Jack Prestwidge waiting on the sidelines. Ben Laughlin and Zahir Khan remain key to their fortunes while much is expected from Josh Lalor with the new ball.
Possible XI: Banton, Bryant, Lynn(C), Renshaw, Heazlett, Pierson(WK), Cutting, Prestwidge/Steketee, Lalor, Zahir, and Laughlin

The weather is also on brighter side, which should make for an entertaining game of cricket in Hobart.
HUR vs HEA Fantasy Tips and Suggestions
Wicket-keeper: Ben McDermott has done well this season with a couple of starts to his name. The Hobart captain also scored a fifty against the Melbourne Renegades and does look to be in good knick as well. Another viable option would be Tom Banton, who would look to make amends for a no-show against the Perth Scorchers. Banton has 87 runs to his name so far and should score some runs at the top of the order.
Batsmen: The duo of D'Arcy Short and Chris Lynn are arguably two of the best in BBL. Both of them are known for their destructive ability and have already made a mark in BBL 2019-20 as well. Considering their ability and reputation, both of them should feature in the fantasy team for this game. David Miller is another decent option with the southpaw due for a big one. As for the final batting pick, one of Caleb Jewell or George Bailey should do the trick.
All-rounders: Matt Renshaw has grown in leaps and bounds over the last year or so in the T20 format. He has had a great start to BBL 2019-20 as well with 126 runs and a wicket as well to his name. While he occupies one spot, either of James Faulkner or Ben Cutting would also suffice. Faulkner has consistently provided the breakthroughs for the Hurricanes and should pick a wicket or two while Cutting's ability to clear the boundary with ease holds him in good stead.
Bowlers: Ben Laughlin and Riley Meredith are their respective side's best bet with the ball. They have picked 5 and 8 wickets respectively and will look to add more to their tallies. Along with them, Afghan spinners, Qais Ahmed and Zahir Khan are also dependable options. While Zahir Khan did put in a good show against the Scorchers, Qais' variations are ones to watch out for.
Captain: D'Arcy Short has already scored two fifties in the tournament with southpaw being the most consistent batsmen over the last few seasons. His record at the Bellerive Oval is exemplary which makes him an ideal candidate for captaincy along with Chris Lynn. David Miller is a fine option as well while Matt Renshaw could also be picked for one of the multiplier options.
