Heat Tackle Renegades

22 January 2021

The Brisbane Heat will hope the sun can shine on their Finals aspirations as they enter the crucial final week of competition.

Brisbane currently sit in seventh spot in a crowded BBL|10 leader board after losing last night to the Adelaide Strikers in Adelaide.

The Heat will play its remaining two matches in daylight hours, starting with tomorrow afternoon's crunch clash with the Melbourne Renegades at Marvel Stadium.

The Heat has named a squad of 18 for the Renegades match and will finalise the 13, including X-Factor players, at the bat flip tomorrow.

Heat wicket-keeper Jimmy Peirson is closing in on 50 BBL dismissals, having claimed 47 to date. He will be the first wicket-keeper to reach that milestone in the BBL.

Brisbane take on Perth Scorchers in Adelaide on Australia Day on Tuesday with the game brought forward marginally to start at 11.30am Qld time.

The Heat will need results in other matches to go their way to finish in the top 5, but can present a strong case with two wins in a row.
