Aus T20 League 2023-2024

Qualifier: HEA vs SIX 


Brisbane Heat (HEA) and Sydney Sixers (SIX) will lock horns in Qualifier of the Aus T20 League 2023-2024 at the iconic Gabba stadium, Brisbane. This clash promises to be a mouth watering one as both sides are in scintillating form this season. HEA, particularly have been impressive, who have lost just one encounter in the tournament thus far. SIX on the other hand have lost two matches. 

HEA has been the team to beat this season. The men in blue have been consistent right throughout the league stages. Barring the last game against Perth Scorchers (SCO), the Brisbane based franchise has managed to win all of their games up till now. In their most recent clash against SCO, HEA failed to perform as a batting unit as they were bundled out for a lowly 128 while chasing 164. They will look to sort out their batting woes ahead of Friday’s clash. As far as their bowling department is concerned skipper Mcsweeney will be hoping his pacers put up a show on matchday. Spencer Johnson and Xavier Bartlett have been their standout speedsters this season. Veteran all rounder Micheal Neser has chipped in with wickets at crucial junctures whereas new signing ‘Tall Paul’ better known as Paul Walter has been spot on with both bat and ball in hand. Overall, this Brisbane side possess a well rounded squad which is capable of beating any opponent on their day. 

SIX have made it to the playoff stage of yet another season. Over the years, the men in magenta have proven that when it comes to consistency then they are still the top pick. They left it to the very last day to seal the second spot in the group standings. They defeated Perth Scorchers (SCO) in the penultimate fixture of the league stage to confirm a meeting with HEA in the Qualifier. The onus to contribute with bat in hand will be on Daniel Hughes, Josh Phillippe and James Vince. While Phillipe and Vince have not been up to the mark this season, Hughes came good in SIX’s last outing. The southpaw scored a breezy 74 to guide his team to victory. Skipper Moises Henriques, who until the last game, struggled to get going would like to continue from where he left on Tuesday. In the bowling department, SIX possess the likes of Ben Dwarshius, Jackson Bird and Sean Abott. Ahead of this riveting fixture let us have a look at how the two teams fare out on Friday.
