Big Bash League Week 5

Monday 13/01/20

7:10pm Hobart Hurricanes vs. Perth Scorchers @ Blundstone Arena

Hobart put up a fight against the Sydney Thunder last week but were beaten with only two balls remaining.

It saw them drop to three wins and five losses on the season, so they’re going to need a turnaround in form this week.

Perth has found form over the last couple of weeks. They beat the Brisbane Heat on Saturday after scoring a mammoth 213 runs.

They lost only three wickets and that bodes well for a good showing again.

Tuesday 14/01/20

3:40pm Brisbane Heat vs. Adelaide Strikers @ Gabba

The Heat have managed to fight their way back into playoff contention but it has been anything but a smooth ride.

They were beaten by Perth on Sunday when chasing an impossible target and there’s a lack of consistency in their performances.

Adelaide has been a touch better in this regard. They are coming off a demolishing of Melbourne Renegades and they rebounded well from their earlier loss in Week 4.

Playing at home will help the Heat so we’ll stick with them.

Wednesday 15/01/20

6:10pm Sydney Thunder vs. Melbourne Renegades @ Manuka Oval

The Thunder should be too good for the Melbourne Renegades, who are still winless after nine games.

Last year’s champions have looked awful this season and we can’t see it getting any better.

Sydney is coming off a win over the Hobart Hurricanes and we’re not expecting punters to get big odds from bookmakers.

Don’t overthink this game; Sydney has class and should be winning comfortably.

7:10pm Perth Scorchers vs. Melbourne Stars @ Optus Stadium

How good was Marcus Stoinis on Sunday night? He went off for 147 runs and made an absolute meal of the Sixers bowlers.

It’s tough to expect the same performance from the Stars two games in a row, but the league leaders look good this season.

It could be the game of the round as Perth has been playing well of late. However, the Stars could remain at the top with another win.

Thursday 16/01/20

7:10pm Sydney Sixers vs. Hobart Hurricanes @ SCG

The Sixers could close in one the Melbourne Stars at the top of the ladder with a win over the Hurricanes.

This will be Hobart’s second game of the week and it could be a tough week for them. They haven’t been in superb form and Sydney is a tough opponent.

The Sixers were beaten by Melbourne on Sunday but they chased gamely after the Stars set 219/1. It was an incredible game but Sydney should come out of it OK.

Bookmakers will have the Sixers as favourites and rightfully so.

Friday 17/01/20

4:10pm Adelaide Strikers vs. Brisbane Heat @ Adelaide Oval

The Strikers and Heat play a return game after the Heat hosts the Strikers on Tuesday night.

The outcome of this game will depend on what happens on Tuesday. Either way, we expect the losing side on Tuesday to win the second game of the double-header.

It often happens in the BBL and most sports for that matter. We think the Heat wins the first game but loses to the Strikers here.

Saturday 18/01/20

3:40pm Melbourne Stars vs. Perth Scorchers @ MCG

In another return game, the Stars host the Perth Scorchers on Saturday afternoon. The Stars are at the top of the leaderboard and we’re expecting them to remain there in Week 5.

They’re coming off a big win last week and even if they don’t beat Perth in Perth this week, they should return home and win this game.

They have a terrific batting lineup and it runs deep. That makes the Stars tough to beat on any given day.

7:10pm Sydney Thunder vs. Sydney Sixers @ Sydney Showground Stadium

It’s an all-Sydney battle as the Thunder and Sixers do battle on Saturday night.

So far this season, it has been the Sixers that are better than the Thunder. However, the Thunder are more than capable of winning this.

We think the Thunder will improve more than the Sixers over the second half of the season. For that reason, we’re going with the Thunder to win this game.

Sunday 19/01/20

2:45pm Hobart Hurricanes vs. Adelaide Strikers @ Uni of Tasmania Stadium

Hobart play three times this week and this looks their best chance to get a win on the board.

They have been playing well of late but not good enough to put fear into their opponent’s eyes.

We like the Strikers as a team this season. However, playing in Hobart is never easy as the conditions are different.

Hobart could sneak a win at home in what should be a close game.

7:10pm Brisbane Heat vs. Melbourne Renegades @ Gabba

The Heat could end the week on a high as they face the 0-9 Melbourne Renegades.

Brisbane has the firepower to string some wins together this season and they’ll see this game as a must-win.

Melbourne has shown nothing to date and that’s unlikely to change against a good team this week.

Stick with the Heat.
