Sydney Sixers v Brisbane Heat team news

Sixers have added Tom Curran to their squad after he served his four-match ban. He joins the in-form James Vince as the only overseas options. Joel Davies could miss out

Possible XI: Philippe, Vince, Patterson, Henriques, Silk, Edwards, T Curran, Abbott, Dwarshuis, Bird, Murphy

Jimmy Peirson comes back into the Heat squad, which should be unchanged following the washout versus Sixers. But there may not be room for him with the team winning all four matches this term. An option is to drop Paul Walter but that would leave them a bowler short.

Probable XI: Brown, Munro, McSweeney, Renshaw, Billings, Walter, Bartlett, Neser, Johnson, Swepson, Kuhnemann

Sydney Sixers v Brisbane Heat pitch report

There have been only three matches played at Coffs Harbour. The form suggests runs with scores of 203, 151 and 176 batting first. That 203 was by Sixers against Strikers last season with 17 sixes scored. Over 11.5 sixes is at 4/51.80 with Sportsbook.

Sydney Sixers v Brisbane Heat match odds

The early show has Sixers at 1.728/11 and Heat 1.738/11. One suspects that once the market matures Sixers will retain favourite status.

Therefore if we can get [2.22] about the Heat we will take it. They are the coming force in the Bash with 11 wins in the last 13.

With the pitch expected to be flat it would also be fair to assume that the side batting first trades at that 1.705/7 area at the break.

Back Brisbane Heat @ 2.226/5

Sean Abbott is out to 90/191.00 for top Sixers bat. It is a crazy price and one we have to take given that he should be around 33/134.00 and even that would be considered generous. It's not ideal that the pitch could be a belter but it's a simple wrong price.
