Fantasy Cricket: Stars vs Heat BBL Preview


In the match #53 of the Big Bash League 2019-20 Melbourne Stars will host Brisbane Heat. This match is very important for the Heat, who need a win to boost their playoff chances. The Stars, on the other hand, have already confirmed their top spot.

The Stars have 20 points from their 13 points and will look to get back to winning ways. With the playoffs looming, a winning mentality will surely benefit them. The Heat are coming off back-to-back losses. Pertintently, those losses have been demoralising, complete with batting collapses.

Melbourne Stars Preview

The Stars have been very strong with their batting and that has driven their season. Top of that pile is Marcus Stoinis. The opener remains a strong fantasy choice for your side. Glenn Maxwell has also been in impressive form and should be a good pick as well.

The absence of Harris Rauf for international duty make the Stars light on the attack. However, keep an eye on Dilbar Hussain, who is equally sharp. Sandeep Lamichhane has 14 wickets and is showing his true worth to the side.

Brisbane Heat Preview

Captain Chris Lynn has been the pillar for the Heat with 339 runs. However, inconsistencies have been their bane this season. Even AB de Villiers is yet to fire and that is a worry for the Heat. The all-conquering Marnus Labuschagne is a good choice for your fantasy side.

It is the bowling that bears a deserted look for the Heat. Only Ben Laughlin with 14 wickets has been among the wickets, while the rest have been toll little. James Pattinson has shown good form with both bat and ball to warrant a place in your side.

Fantasy Players to Watch

Marcus Stoinis is in such fine form that it would be surprising not to have him in your fantasy side. A definite pick,

Chris Lynn might be a bit too inconsistent, but is great when he gets going. A string pick for your side.

James Pattinson was the best batsman and bowler for the Heat during their last match. An encore with the bat might not be possible, but he will surely be among the wickets.
