The Big Bash League (BBL) 2023-24 is just one game away from getting their two finalists of the season. The Brisbane Heat will take on the Adelaide Strikers at the Carrara Oval in Queensland. This will be another do-or-die match where the winner will fix their place in the final of BBL 13 and the loser will have to finally go home even after coming so far in the league. The Brisbane Heat will look to finally come back strong and bring their past performances in the league stages into this game, But the Strikers will not make it easy for them. It is set to be another cracker of a contest between two competitive sides aiming for their 2nd BBL title which they are only 2 wins away from.

Brisbane Heat are no doubt the best team in the league stage finishing on top of the table this season, but will be coming into this game losing two games in a row. They will want to make a comeback and win this game to secure a place in the final. All eyes will be on Paul Walter and Xavier Bartlett who have been their best players in the league so far. This time they do not have the advantage that they had in the qualifier and cannot afford any errors going into this game.

On the other hand, the Adelaide Strikers have been having an impressive winning streak going into this match. They have had 5 wins in a row which included a great victory against the Perth Scorchers in the Knockout. They might have not made it into the playoffs in the easiest of fashions, but this does not take away the amazing winning streak they have been having in their last 5 matches. Matthew Short and his men will still want to keep that streak alive win the next two matches and get their hands on that title once and for all for the 2nd time.

HEA vs STR– Pitch Report

We have seen the nature of the surface in Queensland in the qualifier itself where the batters were facing a lot of challenges. The extra bounce and grip that the surface was offering was no doubt a joyful surface for the bowlers and a headache for the batters. If we consider the last game the best decision on this wicket will be to bat first and set a competitive total on the board and the bowlers can use these helpful conditions and restrict the batters easily. However, this is still a T20 game and if the pitch somehow gets better the short dimensions on this ground will be enough to give the batters enough confidence to play the big hits.
