Double Header Squads Named

26 January 2018

The Brisbane Heat have named batsmen Chris Lynn and Matthew Renshaw in their squad for tomorrow night’s do-or-die KFC Big Bash League clash with the Melbourne Renegades.

Lynn returns after missing the past four weeks with a calf injury while Renshaw has been named in the Heat 13-man squad for the first time in BBL|07 and would make his debut if chosen in the starting side.

The Heat must win against the Renegades and rely on other results and the extent of their victory if they are to snatch fourth spot and a place in next week’s semi-finals.

Jason Floros and Marnus Labuschagne drop out of the squad that lost to the Sydney Sixers a week ago at the SCG.

The WBBL Brisbane Heat have named an unchanged squad for their similarly crunch series against the Sydney Thunder, tomorrow at the Gabba as part of a double-header, and again on Sunday at Allan Border Field.

The Thunder currently lead the Rebel Women’s Big Bash League with the Heat needing to win one and most likely two of the games if they are to grab a spot in the top four.

Sunday’s match at Allan Border Field starting at 2pm is free admission while tomorrow’s game at the Gabba is part of a ticketed BBL event.

Tomorrow night’s game is a sell-out, the third sell-out for the Heat in BBL|07 which saw a new ground record for the club achieved against the Perth Scorchers earlier this month when 35,564 fans packed the Gabba.
