– Pitch Report
Carrara Oval (Carrara) will host this 35th match of the BBL 10 between Sydney Sixers and Brisbane Heat on Sunday. This venue has already hosted five matches in the ongoing BBL season, two in late December 2020 and three in this month.
While the second batting teams successfully managed to chase the targets in the first four matches at this venue in this BBL season, including one rain-affected match, Brisbane Heat successfully defended their first innings total against Melbourne Stars during the rain-affected match at this venue on last Thursday (7th January).
In their short T20 cricket history, Carrara Oval has a good record of successful chasing. Also, the uncertain weather can force the toss-winning captain to choose to field first on Sunday.
