Match 17 of the ongoing BBL 2022-23 season will see Brisbane Heat take on the Sydney Thunder in Sydney on December 27. Both teams are placed in the bottom half of the table. Most of the teams have played just four games in the season and more than half of the season is still remaining. 

Adelaide Strikers and Melbourne Renegades are the top two teams with six points each. The Brisbane Heat failed to live up to the expectations last season and finished in the second-last position on the point table just above the Renegades, owing to a better net run rate.

However, this time around, they have a good squad with plenty of power hitters in the team. Brisbane Heat’s batting unit looks solid with the presence of Jimmy Peirson, Max Bryant, Sam Billings, and Colin Munro.

Sydney to have a good batting core led by Alex Hales and Rilee Rossouw. In the absence of David Warner, Alex Ross becomes a key figure in the batting lineup. Daniel Sams and Chris Green are two key all-rounders in the XI.
