Squad Named for Sixers

03 January 2022

The Brisbane Heat have announced a squad of 15 to prepare for tomorrow night's vital rematch with the defending BBL champion Sydney Sixers at Gold Coast's Metricon Stadium.

The Heat currently sit in fifth spot on the KFC Big Bash League ladder and are focussed on stabilising their spot in the top five in the back half of the tournament.

Hurricanes X Heat Highlights


Brisbane lost a last-ball thriller against the Sixers a week ago at the SCG and will look to build on Sunday's last start win over the Hobart Hurricanes.

Sixers X Heat Highlights


The Heat will have a quick turnaround following the Sixers match, flying to Melbourne on Wednesday to prepare for Thursday' clash with the Mebourne Renegades at Geelong.

Pakistan international batsman Fakhar Zaman will link with the team in Geelong. The left-handed batsman will wear number 39. 

Metricon Stadium will host two more games this week, with the Perth Scorchers playing back to back games against the Sydney Thunder (Wed) and Sydney Sixers (Thurs). Both of those games will start at 8.15pm.

The Heat have established a strong connection with Metricon Stadium, and thanks to the on-going support from the City of Gold Coast, have a 'home away from home' on the Gold Coast, Australia's favourite playground.
