It’s the halfway stage in the Big Bash twenty20 competition in Australia, with struggling Sydney Thunder hosting last year’s champions Brisbane Heat.
After losing their first four matches Sydney are essentially out of the running already to lift the 2013/14 trophy, but having not won in over two years a victory in this tie would be great for morale.
However, with Brisbane starting slowly as they look to defend their title, the franchise will be looking at this game as a great opportunity to get back into the race.
For the hosts their continued poor form is somewhat bewildering considering they made extra effort to bring in top talent this season.
Along with captain Mike Hussey they have the likes of Tillakaratne Dilshan, Usman Khawaja and big hitter Cameron Borgas at their disposal.
As for the away side, they may welcome back Shane Watson after a 5-0 Ashes triumph over England with the Australian national team, although the all-rounder may still need more time to recover.
They do have 20-over specialists Craig Kieswetter and Luke Pomersbach to call upon though, whilst Chris Lynn and Dan Christian have also shown good form.
