The Brisbane Heat got dismissed for a disappointing 105 against the Sydney Sixers on Wednesday night but should have won the game anyway after reducing the Sixers to 8-47 in reply.

Who will win Hobart Hurricanes vs Brisbane Heat?

After a slow start to the season, the Hurricanes are starting to motor along, thanks in no small part to the dominance of Ben McDermott who has scores of 67, 110 not out and 127 in his last 3 matches. Matthew Wade and D'Arcy Short are also capable of piling on the runs with Hobart – perhaps the team most likely to break into the Scorchers/Sixers top-2 stronghold.

Brisbane Heat has had an inconsistent start to the season, but nearly produced a stunning victory on Wednesday when they were well on track to defend just 105. However, they couldn't break a 58-run 9th wicket stand and came up short in the end.

They desperately need runs out of Chris Lynn to kickstart them at the top and to support what has been a fairly competent bowling group this season. The Hurricanes, at this point, have the answers and should go to 12-7 on the head-to-head with Brisbane after this contest.
