Captain Chris Lynn will be unavailable for at least next six matches due to the hamstring injury. While he scored one half-century in his last game in the ongoing tournament, surely Brisbane Heat will miss him massively.
Jimmy Peirson is now the stand-in captain of this team, who is the only other batsman of this side to score a fifty in this tournament.
The only other one 30+ scorer for this team in this season, Jack Wildermuth (31 & 1) is also team’s joint leading wicket-taker (4 wickets) in the early moment of this tournament. Xavier Bartlett has also bagged 4 wickets in this BBL 10.
Colin Ingram (145 runs in 4 innings), Ben McDermott (135 runs in 2 innings), Tim David (124 runs in 4 innings) and D’Arcy Short (75 runs in 4 innings) all have scored one half-century each in the ongoing BBL 10. In his only two inning of this season, McDermott scored 46 and 89* respectively. Meanwhile, Proteas cricketer Ingram has scored 55, 25, 46 and 14 runs respectively in this tournament.
Moreover, English cricketer and the no.1-ranked T20I batsman Dawid Malan has recently joined the squad. His presence is going to make the batting line-up stronger and more attractive.
