16 January 2020

The Brisbane Heat will look to push further up the KFC Big Bash League ladder tomorrow afternoon when they resume their BBL campaign in against the Adelaide Strikers at the Adelaide Oval.

The Heat moved into third spot overnight on net run rate after the Perth Scorchers lost to the competition-leading Melbourne Stars in Perth.
 
Brisbane today named the same 13 that defeated Adelaide at the Gabba on Tuesday which featured the debut of South African star AB de Villiers.

Paceman Josh Lalor moved into equal second on the Heat’s all-time leading wicket-taker list, joining Mark Steketee on 42 dismissals, with his haul of 2-12 against the Strikers.
 
Wicket-keeper Jimmy Peirson became just the second gloveman in BBL history to claim five dismissals in a match and only the third wicket-keeper in the history of T20 to claim four dismissals off the one bowler, all catches off James Pattinson in his haul of 5-33.
