Heat Welcome Test Duo

20 January 2021

The Brisbane Heat have welcomed Test squad duo Marnus Labuschagne and Mitch Swepson into their squad for tomorrow night's crunch KFC Big Bash League match against Adelaide Strikers at the Adelaide Oval.

The pair will have to complete COVID-19 testing in order to gain exemptions to play in Adelaide after being with the Australian squad for the past four Vodafone Test matches against India.

The BBL Technical Committee today approved their inclusion in the Heat squad, with local replacement players Simon Milenko and Jack Wood exiting the squad in turn.

The Heat will finalise their final 13 prior to the bat flip.

Brisbane lost by 59 runs to the Perth Scorchers in Melbourne last night and travelled to Adelaide today.

The Heat return to Melbourne on Friday to meet the Renegades at Marvel Stadium on Saturday night before again travelling to Adelaide for the Australia Day clash with Perth Scorchers on Tuesday.

Brisbane currently sit in sixth spot in a crowded BBL|10 leader board.
