Heazlett Returns to Squad

18 January 2020

Batsman Sam Heazlett will make his return to the Brisbane Heat squad for tomorrow night's vital KFC Big Bash League match at the Gabba against defending champions the Melbourne Renegades.

Heazlett replaces fellow batsman Max Bryant in the 13-man squad in the only change to the team humbled by 10 wickets by the Adelaide Strikers yesterday in Adelaide.

The left-hander last played for the Heat against the Melbourne Stars on the Gold Coast earlier this month before he was stricken with illness that saw him briefly hospitalised in Hobart.

He was due to be in action this week for the Queensland Academy of Sport in the Toyota 2nd XI T20 competition on the Sunshine Coast alongside fellow Heat squad mates Cameron Gannon, Jack Prestwidge and Matt Kuhnemann.

The Heat have two key games at the Gabba this week that will shape their chances of making the Finals.
