The Big Bash League (BBL) 2023-24 action will begin on 27 December tomorrow with the Brisbane Heat going up against Sydney Thunder at the Gabba in match 16. This will be the battle between two former champions, the Heat who were BBL2 champions, and the Thunder who were BBL 5 champions.  This will be a great contest between two sides who will be playing to win to get their hands on the trophy for the second time. The last time these two teams played this season the heat had got the better of them and won the game by 20 runs. Will the Heat come on top again or will the Thunder get their redemption?

The Brisbane Heat have been on a roll with 3 wins out of their 4 games and one washout. They are still undefeated and moving forward with a lot of confidence. Their batters have been on song and their bowlers have been on the money. There has not yet been a team that has stopped their undefeated streak yet. This has already been a dream start for them topping the table with a high Net Run Rate (NRR) as well. Let's see if they will continue their dominant run in this match as well.

On the other hand, things didn’t start well for the Sydney Thunder as well out of the three games they could only manage 1 win. They have already lost to the Heat before in their first game and failed to defend a target over 200 against the Adelaide Strikers in their second. Hopefully, the win against the Melbourne Stars in their last game has given them enough confidence to turn their season around in the next few games. They will look to continue their winning ways after the last match and also have a chance to avenge their disappointing loss against this team the last time they played.

HEA vs THU– Likely Pitch Conditions

The Gabba has been a surface where the pace bowlers have enjoyed their time with the extra bounce which makes it difficult for the batters to get under the ball. Though chasing on this ground has been very tough for teams in the past, as we have seen before there is still that unpredictable nature that can lead to great chases which we have seen before. The spinners in the Gabba have not really had much success which could make it easier option for the batters to attack the spinners in the middle overs. Overall batting first still might be a better idea where a score of above 170 could be a tough score to chase.
