16 January 2019

The Brisbane Heat has recalled batsman Sam Heazlett and paceman Mark Steketee for tomorrow night’s important KFC Big Bash League match against the Sydney Thunder at the Gabba.

The duo come into the squad in place of Australian selections Marnus Labuschagne and Matt Renshaw, who along with Joe Burns, are in action in Hobart with the Cricket Australia XI tour match against Sri Lanka in preparation for next week’s Domain day/night Test against the visitors at the Gabba.


The pair re-join the Heat squad for the Thunder match, which comes off the club’s biggest ever win, a 101-run victory over the Melbourne Renegades at Geelong on Sunday.
 
Paceman Jack Prestwidge retains his spot in the 13-man squad and would make his BBL debut if included in the starting side tomorrow night.

Tickets are selling quickly through Ticketek for tomorrow’s match which starts at 6.15pm.
