HEA vs THU Match Preview and Fantasy Prediction
Aus T20 League 2021
Match 14, Heat vs Thunders
Heat and Thunders will square off in match 14 of the Aus T20 League 2021 at Gabba, Brisbane on December 19. Last time these two teams met, Thunders emerged victorious. Alex Ross and Daniel Sams were the chief architects of the seven wicket win. Heat will however be heading into this game with some confidence as they defeated Renegades in their last game to get the first win of the tournament. Thunders on the other hand lost their previous clash against Stars by the barest of margins.
Heat haven’t had the greatest of starts to their season. In three games they have played so far, the men in glue have only mustered to gain a solitary win. The batting department revolves around Sam Heazlett who has been their only consistent performer. Xavier Bartlett and James Bazley are their pick of the bowlers. The bounce at Gabba can provide assistance to these promising pacers. Chris Lynn Lynn has been far from his lethal best in the competition up til now and a whole lot would be expected from the dashing opener.
With 5 points in 3 games, Thunders have failed to put up a decent show so far in the tournament. Alex Ross has been the lone batter in their batting department who has shown some substance with bat in hand. Sam Billings has done well in bits and pieces but has struggled with his consistency. Bowling attack looks potent with Sangha and McAndrew leading the charge. Former Heat all rounder Ben Cutting who now is a part of the Thunders camp will be keen to make a mark against his old franchise. Ahead of this riveting clash, let us have a look at how these two units fare out in Sunday’s fixture.
Match: HEA vs THU, 14th Match, Aus-T20 League 2021-22

The Gabba deck has traditionally been favourable for batting. Bowlers need to be very precise with their line and length. Chasing teams tend to have an advantage on this wicket. Hence, the team that wins the toss should look to bowl first.
