BBL action heads to Queensland for the second time this season as
Brisbane Heat host Sydney Thunder from a sold-out Gabba.

Both these sides have split their opening two matches and will be
looking to cement their respective spots on the ladder as the season
rolls on.

The name on everyone’s lips is Chris Lynn, who’s in the extended squad
and looks fit to start after a long layoff due to shoulder surgery.

As for the away team, Sydney Thunder were soundly beaten by a rampant
Adelaide Strikers outfit just five days ago but 19-year-old Arjun Nair
showed more early-season promise – finishing with bowling figures of
3-36 as well as reaching 23 not out as the Thunder were bowled out for
110. The Thunder will be hoping he can repeat his efforts in a winning
side later tonight.

Tonight’s clash looms as a crucial one for two sides who are both
coming off respective losses and could go a long way to shaping the
fortunes of both the Heat and Thunder as BBL|07 continues.
