Match Prediction Hobart Hurricanes v Brisbane Heat, 29th Match 2021/22

A confident Hobart Hurricanes take on a stuttering Brisbane Heat side in match number 29 of this Big Bash League (BBL) 2021-22. The Bellerive Oval in Hobart will host this game.

Bash Boost points which has propelled them to the third spot on the points table (with 17 points).

On the other hand, Brisbane Heat haven’t hit their straps yet. They have won just two out of their seven games. However, four Bash Boost points have ensured their tally has reached 10 and their net run rate of -0.280 keeps them afloat at the sixth place on the points table.

As far as the head-to-head record is concerned, Hobart Hurricanes have won 11 while Brisbane Heat have won seven, three of which have come in the last two seasons.

Who will win today’s match Hobart Hurricanes vs Brisbane Heat, 29th Match BBL 2021/22??

Hobart Hurricanes seem to have found new wings, especially in the last few games since Ben McDermott has come in and started smashing fifties and hundreds for fun. Matthew Wade and D’Arcy Short have chipped in nicely too. But the middle-order hasn’t really fired yet and that has been covered by McDermott’s phenomenal run. The bowling has been good with Tom Rogers leading the wickets tally. Nathan Ellis and Riley Meredith have done well and are amongst the wickets.

Be it with bat or ball, Brisbane Heat just haven’t been consistent enough. The batting unit has produced just three individual half-centuries – two from Ben Duckett and one from Chris Lynn. While the batters haven’t really been able to convert their starts and produce big scores, the bowling has done considerably well. The likes of James Bazley and Mark Steketee have constantly been amongst the wickets. Xavier Bartlett and Mujeeb Ur Rahman have fared decently as well.

Hobart Hurricanes are the in-form team and the head to head record also favours them. Thus, they might start favourites but don’t count Brisbane Heat out. The latter have a few quality players in their ranks.
