Brisbane Heat will come face to face against Adelaide Strikers in Match No. 13 of the Big Bash League 2020-21 at the Gabba on Wednesday (December 23). The Chris Lynn-led side have lost both of their encounters and will be eager to get their first win of the season.

Meanwhile, Adelaide lost to Hobart Hurricanes in their first game of the edition before beating them a few days later. Alex Carey and Co. however couldn't keep the momentum going and were taken out by Sydney Sixers in their last fixture.

BBL head-to-head

Overall: Matches – 11 | Brisbane – 5 Wins | Adelaide – 6 Wins

Last 5 Matches: Brisbane – 2 Wins | Adelaide – 3 Wins

Suggested Teams

While you could go for the above team, you also have the option of choosing your own team from cricket.com’s Fantasy Research Centre. Based on algorithms we come up with six different teams that could fetch crucial points.

Ground details and team combination

The Gabba is set to host its first match of BBL 2020-21. The venue has hosted 10 T20s since 2019, in which batsmen have scored runs at a rate of 7.7 and an average of 22.4. Meanwhile, bowlers here have picked up a wicket every 17.5 deliveries in this time frame.

The fast bowlers here have a better strike rate (15.9) and average (21.4) than spinners (21.5, 25.9 respectively) but the latter have been more economical. The likes of Rashid Khan, Mujeeb Ur Rahman and Mitch Swepson (if available) could prove to be handy on this surface.

Captain Selection

Chris Lynn: The right-handed dasher is a BBL legend! Brisbane might have lost both their games but Lynn has already stamped his authority in this season. The Heat skipper scored 20 against Melbourne Stars before coming into his own against Sydney Thunder. Lynn smashed three fours and five maximums in his 44-ball 69 and looked in great form. He also has a solid T20 record at the Gabba, having scored 1093 runs at 36.43. The 33-year-old however will have to be wary of Rashid Khan against whom he averages 13.7 in eight innings.  

X-Factors

Jack Wildermuth: The allrounder had solid outings for Australia A against the "Indians" and managed to carry forward that form into the BBL. After smoking 31 off just 11 deliveries, Wildermuth took three wickets with the new ball against Thunder and had them on the mat before Brisbane messed everything up.

Daniel Worrall: The 29-year-old has managed to make an impression in all three games for Adelaide. Worrall didn't have a great first game with the ball in hand but smashed 62* in the second innings. The right-arm seamer has picked up three wickets in the last two matches and has looked in great rhythm. Worrall is someone who could get you points in both departments.    

Rashid Khan: The legspinner from Afghanistan has leaked runs at an economy of over 8 and has only taken three wickets in this season so far, but it would be foolish to leave him out of your playing XI. In the last three BBL seasons, Rashid has scalped 56 wickets at an average of 17.66 and a strike rate of 17.
