How to watch Brisbane Heat vs Hobart Hurricanes BBL live and match preview


The Heat need to avoid slipping too far away from finals contention when they take on the Hurricanes this week.

SUMMARY: Brisbane Heat vs Hobart Hurricanes is on Fox Cricket. Unless you're already a Foxtel customer, your best option is to watch live on Kayo Sports. You can watch for free using this 14-day trial.

These sides met on New Year's Day with the Heat claiming a significant victory that keeps them in touch with the top 4. James Bazley's 44 not out was crucial to the result in a relatively low-scoring affair, one that leaves Hobart vulnerable in fourth place.

The Hurricanes didn't get the usual drive from Ben McDermott or the rest of the top order in what was a disappointing total of 8-136. They have demonstrated they are capable of putting up some very big scores though.

Who will win Heat vs Hurricanes?

The Brisbane Heat have produced some good moments this year, but frequent bursts of wickets during their own innings has derailed them repeatedly. The Heat have lost at least 8 wickets in 6 of their 8 matches, and they lost 5 and 7 in the other games.

They've been bowled out 3 times and have only twice scored beyond 151. The Hurricanes on the other hand have lost at least 8 wickets on 4 occasions, and have gone beyond 151 on 4 occasions as well.

Both teams have genuine match winners in their top orders, with Chris Lynn and Ben McDermott the main stars for their respective sides. The bowling depth in both line-ups has been strong and served each side well at various points.

At the end of the day we feel the Hurricanes are the more likely to click if you line the 2 sides up side by side, and they should be able to reverse last Saturday's result.
