Expert Tips for Big Bash League Fantasy Cricket:
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.
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.
