Heat vs. Scorchers: Match 48 preview

The Brisbane Heat and Perth Scorchers are ready to face off in the match 48 of the Big Bash League (BBL) in Brisbane on Friday.

The game is a bottom-of-the-table clash as both teams are out of the competition already and area just purely playing for pride.

Therefore, any result will have no significance on the team's chances of making it to the next round.

In their previous game, Heat suffered a demoralising nine-wicket defeat against Hobart Hurricanes in Hobart.

In the batting department, the onus will be once again on captain Chris Lynn and Brendon McCullum to score bulk of the runs, whereas in the bowling department, the onus will be on the likes of Josh Lalor, Brendan Doggett and Mujeeb Ur Rahman to provide timely breakthroughs.

On the other hand, Scorchers will be coming in the match low on confidence after they too suffered a demoralising 78-run defeat against Melbourne Renegades in their previous game in Perth.

In the batting department, the team will be relying on in-form Cameron Bancroft, Ashton Turner and Shaun Marsh to score bulk of the runs, whereas in the bowling department, the onus will be on the likes of Andrew Tye, Jason Beherendorff and Nathan Coulter-Nile to provide timely breakthroughs.

In the previous meeting between both teams earlier in the competition, it was the Heat who came out on top with five-wicket margin.
