Big Bash
BT Sport 2, 8.10am Wednesday

Brisbane Heat produced a barrage of sixes to win their opening Big Bash game against Adelaide Strikers and there should be more big-hitting feats from the Heat when they face Sydney Thunder.

Five different Brisbane batsmen cleared the ropes in their first game with Brendon McCullum and Chris Lynn hitting three sixes apiece and Alex Ross smashing four of his team’s 12 maximums.

The Thunder won the tournament last season but are struggling after a major overhaul of their squad. They lost the Sydney derby by nine wickets against the Sixers before a 49-run defeat to Melbourne Renegades in their second game.

They hit nine sixes in those two matches but seven of those were struck by Pat Cummins – primarily a fast bowler – and their batsmen may be outgunned again.
