The pitch at this ground is a flat wicket, so it would be wise to pick a couple of top-class bowlers like Chris Morris and Zahir Khan. Callum Ferguson, with his current form, can’t be left out and a player like Chris Lynn can turn the tide anytime so it is better to keep him in the side.

Probable Winners:

The pitch favors the team batting first and Heat has failed to chase any score, so if the Thunder bat first then it would be their game to lose.
