Both of these teams enter this contest with a 1-3 record across the early stages of the season. Adelaide suffered a tough defeat to the Sydney Sixers on Tuesday night after having control for much of the evening.

Brisbane have been bowled out twice this season and lost 8 wickets on another occasion with a highest score of 151, so the batting hasn't been firing for them. The only victory came against the struggling Renegades last week.

Who will win Adelaide Strikers vs Brisbane Heat?

Both sides have bowled fairly well this season, but haven't produced enough with the bat to win enough games. Overall they've been getting good contributions from quite a few, but haven't had anyone dominate.

Neither side has a player in the top 10 for runs or wickets over the course of the season, meaning they haven't had enough genuine gamebreakers.

However, both teams do have players capable of doing that job, with Chris Lynn the obvious standout at Brisbane. Adelaide spinner Rashid Khan is also capable of being a match winner.

Brisbane feel like they are further away from their best form and it is difficult to predict an immediate upturn, whereas Adelaide have been fighting hard, with 2 of their defeats coming in the final over. We feel their base is better at the moment and they should claim the victory.
