HEA vs STR Dream11 Prediction: Brisbane Heat would be banging the doors of a rejuvenated Adelaide Strikers in their first clash of the season, in a contest that promises to be a ripper of a feud for the cricketing fans around the globe.
Adelaide Strikers put up a berserking display in the recent match against Melbourne Renegades, with Jonathan Wells (57), Rashid Khan (2/19) and Peter Siddle (3/14) putting swashbuckling exhibitions on board. Led by Travis Head, the Strikers ended their losing spree of three matches in a row and are now seated at the 3rd spot in the points table with four wins, three losses, a no result and 9 points in eight matches played this season. A win at the Gabba would help the Strikers cement their spot further in the competition with 11 points in their kitty.
Meanwhile, Brisbane Heat shouldn’t be undermined in the coming game as they now possess the likes of AB de Villiers and Mujeeb Ur Rahman in their armory who could single-handedly turn the tides in Heat’s favor. Although they lost out the lately concluded match against Scorchers, they could still be vouched as one of the favorites coming into the contest. Presently occupying the 5th spot with four wins and as many losses, the Heat would also be banking on the trio of Ben Cutting, Matt Renshaw, and Ben Laughlin to come up with impressive numbers against arch-rivals Adelaide Strikers.
