Big Bah is back .Big bash is second most popular league of all global t20 leagues. The only t20 league which is on par with IPL. Defending champions Adelaide strikers will travel to Brisbane to play against Heat in pursuit of defending their title. But Adelaide Strikers have to play without their skipper Travis head as he is on national duty.
Brisbane Heat will be lead by Chris Lynn, he is MVP of Big Bash. He is only in the team due to lack of form, which couldn’t fetch him a place. His team mate, oversees buy, Brendon McCullumn isn’t also in great form either. Still they remain hot favourites for the curtain raiser. Daniel Vettori will be continued as coach for Heat. Brisbane Heat has bagged Mujheeb ur Rehaman for this season. His fellow team mate, Rashid Khan, is part Adelaide Strikers for second season. Heat are likely to pick two spinners.
In Absence of Regular Skipper, Travis Head, Collin Ingram will take the reins. This is second consecutive season Collin Ingram is representing Strikers. Collin Ingram has experience in leading a side when representing Glamorgan in T20 blast. Strikers definetely have better bowling lineup. But their batting is underdog to Heatss’. Jake weatherald will open the batting with Alex Carrey. Jake has scored a century in last edition of BBL.
What to expect Gabba?
Gabba is place where matches are most likely to oscillate. Its nit because of the pitch. It is probably because of the home team. They are the unpredictable franchise of BIG Bash.
