Hobart Hurricanes vs Brisbane Heat Preview

The penultimate group stage match of the 2022–23 Big Bash League pits the Hobart Hurricanes against the Brisbane Heat in Match 55. The Hurricanes must win this game to give themselves a chance of moving on to the next round as they enter it in seventh place. The Heat have already locked up a spot in the playoffs. At 13:10 local time on Wednesday, the game will begin at York Park.

The Hurricanes were in a good position and appeared to be on track to make the playoffs just one week ago, but now everything hinges on this match, and they are under pressure to defeat the formidable Brisbane Heat squad.

Although all of Brisbane Heat’s victories have been by small margins, they are now on a winning streak. They risk losing this game in Tasmania if they don’t maintain their standards with the bat or the ball.

As the game goes on, there are sunny periods with a modest increase in humidity. Throughout the game, the temperature will be approximately 23 degrees.

In T20 cricket at this location, the win total is the same for both first-inning batting and bowling. In this game, we anticipate that both clubs will want to start batting first.

At this venue, fast bowlers typically outperform spinners and medium pacers. A par score ranges from 160 to 170. 

Hobart Hurricanes Team News & Probable Playing XIs

For Monday’s match against the Sydney Sixers, Patrick Dooley made his way back into the Hurricanes’ starting lineup and appeared to be in good health despite his prior groin injury. Hobart has to win this game, thus none of the players are likely to get a break.

Brisbane Heat Team News & Probable Playing XIs

Brisbane Heat has already clinched a playoff spot, but it is extremely doubtful that they will rest their Test players since they will be required to miss the final playoff games before the India tour. As a result, we anticipate Brisbane Heat to field their best squad and concentrate on extending their winning streak in this game.

Hobart Hurricanes are the favourite to win this match.


Even though Brisbane Heat have won four straight games and Hobart Hurricanes have dropped three straight, the outcome of this match could be drastically altered by a few runs by the opposing teams. The Brisbane Heat are already in the playoffs and can play any way they want, but the Hurricanes will be trying to win in front of their home crowd. Although we anticipate a competitive game, we are supporting the Hurricanes to finish their group stage on a winning note.
