Brisbane Heat didn't have a great run last summer. Despite signing South African superstar and T20 legend AB de Villiers, who played six matches, the team finished in seventh place and didn't qualify for the play-offs. De Villiers won't be returning this season, but the Heat have made some interesting signings that might compensate for the loss.

Batsman Tom Cooper and all-rounder Jack Wildermuth from the Melbourne Renegades will be moving to Brisbane for BBL|10, with English players Dan Lawrence and Lewis Gregory and local James Bazley joining the BBL|02 champions as well. All in all, the Queenslanders remain a team to watch as the new cricket season commences.

Brisbane Heat history

After failing to qualify for the finals in the inaugural season of the BBL, Brisbane Heat turned things around and won BBL|02, their only championship title so far. Since then, they only made the semi-finals one more time, during BBL|06.

Manuka Oval and the Gabba are being used as hubs early in the campaign. The Heat traditionally play home games at The Gabba and Metricon Stadium. Darren Lehmann is the coach, while big-hitter Chris Lynn is their skipper.
