HEA vs THU Dream11 Prediction: Top Run scorer, Wicket-taker and Winning Team Prediction for Match 19, BBL 2022-23
The Brisbane Heat will take on Sydney Thunder in Match 19 of the Big Bash League 2022-23 season at the Carrara Oval in Gold Coast, Queensland on Thursday, 29th December 2022.
Here, we shall take a look at the players who have a great chance of emerging as the top scorer and top wicket-taker in this match.
HEA vs THU Dream11 Prediction: Top Run Scorer
Jimmy Pierson: Jimmy Pierson is currently the highest run scorer for Brisbane Heat. Even in the last game Pierson scored 27 after the team was 3 down for just 26 on the board. Considering Brisbane's record in the powerplay with the bat this season, there is a high possibility we can get Pierson to bat even more in this match. He has 84 runs in the middle overs this season and is fifth in the top run scorer in this phase of an innings.
Alex Hales: Alex Hales was top scorer for the Thunder in the last two games where he scored an unbeaten 59 against Brisbane Heat and 68 against Adelaide Strikers. Overall, the English international is the third highest run scorer in the tournament so far. He is definitely one of the top batters who can outscore everyone in this fixture.
Rilee Rossouw: The South African left hander had one of the best years of his career. Rossouw has over a thousand T20 runs this year with eleven fifties, including a century in Australia during the World Cup. Even though he hasn't done much overall since scoring a half century against the Renegades, it will be very difficult for the Heat to stop a player like him in these conditions.
