BRH VS HBH : Hobart Hurricanes head to Queensland for their first fixture of Big Bash 2018-19 season against Brisbane Heat at Carrara Oval. The latter suffered a defeat to Adelaide Strikers in their tournament opener. The Heat never had any momentum in the fixture. They were bowled out for a below-par 146 and later could not stop Strikers’ Alex Carey who took the game away from them in the first 10 overs.
Hobart Hurricanes come into the tournament after two successful warmup games, against the Auckland Aces. They have a strong squad with the likes of Matthew Wade, Jofra Archer, George Bailey, James Faulkner, Ben McDermott and D’Arcy Short in the ranks and would be looking for a positive start at Carrara Oval.
