The Heat will look to give their home fans something to cheer about when they host the Hurricanes on Thursday night.

Since their Round 2 victory against the Stars, Brisbane has gone on a season ending losing streak. Five losses in their past five matches have them rooted to the bottom of the table and well out of finals contention. Only once have the Queenslanders registered a total over 200 runs, coincidentally that was against the Hurricanes. Peter Forrest chimed in with 62 runs to set up a total of 208, but not even the double ton was enough for the two points. Forrest has top scored for the Heat on three seperate occasions this year, and he’s in the most runs market.

With three teams locked on six points, including themselves, Thursday’s match is a must win for the Hurricanes. Damien Wright’s men sit just shy of the top four in fifth spot, and gaining the two points at Brisbane’s expense would pour a heap of pressure on the Stars and Sixers heading into the final round. They will once again turn to Ben Hilfenhaus for inspiration with the ball, and with eight dismissals already to his name this season, he looks value in the most wickets market at .  

With their season on the line combined with the Heat’s poor form, Hobart head into this match as commanding favourites. The Hurricanes had one over to spare when these sides clashed back in Round 3, but that hasn’t put off one punter who has put $2000 on the hosts in the head-to-head market.
