Dream11 Prediction, HEA vs THU Fantasy Cricket Tips & Playing XI Updates for Today's BBL 2019-20 Match - Dec 17th, 2019

Brisbane Heat:
The Brisbane Heat are set to field Tom Bunton and Zaheer Khan along with both foreign stars in the 13-man squad on Tuesday. While Benton will form a fearsome trio in the top order alongside Lynn and Bryant, Zaheer Khan is likely to bowl alongside Mitchell Swepson.

Matt Renshaw and Sam Hizlett will be in the middle order while Ben Cutting will provide momentum in the death overs. One of Josh Lalor or Mark Steketti should get a nod to use the new ball, although they could both play with dismissing Swapson.

Possible XI: Lynn (C), Banton, Bryant, Rainshaw, Heislett, Cutting, Pearson (WK), Steketee, Zaheer, Lalor / Swepson and Laughlin.

Sydney Thunder:

The Thunder look very well balanced, adding the firepower of Alex Hales and Alex Ross. The pairing of Callum Ferguson and Osman Khwaja are fully complemented with Matt Gilks ​​donning gloves for the Thunder.

With Chris Morris not available for the first game, Daniel Symes and Arjun Nair will have to play with the bat as well as T20 specialist, Chris Green. Chris Triman will make his bowling debut, while Nathan McAndrew should cover the hatchery.

Potential XI: Hales, Khwaja, Ferguson (C), Gilks ​​(WK), Ross, Samus, Nair, Triman, Green, McAndrew and Cook.

Fantasy tips and suggestions:

Wicket-keeper: Both Matt Gilks ​​and Jimmy Pierson are in good form with a good performance in the recently concluded Marsh Cup. Gilkres scored 150 runs at a strike-rate of 113.64, while Pearson's 79-run knock in the final gave him a good score. Nevertheless, the Gilkers should allow the Thunder keeper to bat relatively more than his counterpart.

Batsman: Chris Lynn is the second highest run-scorer in BBL history and should go on to Michael Klinger's tally of 1947 runs. While he should be a player on the side, either Tom Banton or Max Bryant is a viable option. Usman Khawaja did well in the practice game with a quick half-century against the Sydney Sixers. He also gets a place in the fantasy team with the form of Callum Ferguson in the Marsh One Day Cup, who replaces Alex Hales.

All-rounders: Ben Cutting and Daniel Samms are the preferred all-rounders for the game and both batted at number six and expected to bowl at least three overs. Both all-rounders impressed last year and will be itching to continue their fine form. Nathan McAndrew is a viable option as well if one picks an extra all-rounder in the fantasy side.

Bowlers: New recruits, Ben Laughlin and Zaheer Khan prove crucial to the Heat with their wicket-taking ability in this format. He is chosen without any hesitation while T20 specialist, Chris Green is another easy option in the fantasy side. Chris Tremain's ability to take wickets with a new ball is quite lethal as he can take advantage of the conditions at Gaba on Tuesday.

Captain: Chris Lynn and Usman Khawaja come in BBL 2019-20 in fine form. While Khwaja Marsh was the player of the tournament in the ODI Cup, Chris Lynn won a similar award in the Abu Dhabi T10 League 2019 with 371 runs in eight matches. While both of these are ideal candidates for the multiplier option, Tom Banton is a useful option for the same.

Fantasy Suggestion # 1: Matt Gilks, Alex Ross, Chris Lynn, Tom Banton, Usman Khwaja, Ben Cutting, Daniel Samms, Chris Green, Chris Tremain, Ben Laughlin and Zaheer Khan. Captain: Chris Lynn, Vice Captain: Usman Khawaja

Fantasy Tip # 2: Jimmy Pierson, Callum Ferguson, Chris Lynn, Max Bryant, Osman Khwaja, Ben Cutting, Daniel Samms, Nathan McAndrew, Chris Green, Zaheer Khan and Ben Lavalin. Captain: Usman Khawaja, Vice-Captain: Tom Banton
