What is the pitch report for THU vs HEA, BBL 2022/23, Match 17?
There is a lot of pace in the wicket where the batters need to be more watchful while facing the quick bowlers early on in the innings. It’s not easy to score huge runs here considering the surface.

Top Pick – Batter
Alex Hales took on the onus in the last game against Strikers and occupied the crease till the 16th over and scored 68 runs from 50 balls. Overall in 4 matches in this tournament, he has scored 100 runs at an average of 25.
Top Pick – All-Rounder
Daniel Sams is a deceptive bowler who consistently takes the pace off the ball. He is a game-changer and a good pick for your fantasy teams.
Top Pick – Bowler
Gurinder Sandhu doesn’t have an express pace but tests the batters with his nagging line and lengths. In 4 matches in this BBL, he has scalped 7 wickets at an economy of 7.74.

Sydney Thunder are in extremely bad shape at the moment having lost their previous 3 matches. They came so close against the Renegades and Strikers however hiccups at the late end have hurt them hugely. The inconsistency of their batters is the biggest reason for their failure. Adding to the insult, they terminated the contract of their overseas speedster Fazalhaq Farooqi for inappropriate behavior. Usman Qadir will replace him in the squad. Gurinder Sandhu and Daniel Sams are bowling in tandem having picked up 7 wickets apiece. A lot has been expected from their big guns Rilee Rossouw and Alex Hales. With one win and 3 losses, they are placed 8th in the standings with 2 points.
After two initial losses against Melbourne Renegades, Brisbane Heat finally got success with 6 run win over table-toppers Adelaide Strikers. Sam Billings hit his first half-century of the tournament to take Brisbane to a competitive total of 166 runs and later pace spearhead Mark Steketee’s 4 wicket haul handed them the first points on the table. Max Bryant has returned to the form with a blistering 46 runs. It’s a just small step towards success and they need to be consistent in their process. They sit at the 6th spot in the standings with 2 points.
