Brisbane Heat players to watch

Paul Walter

Paul Walter

Paul Walter is the newest English left-hander the Heat have poached from overseas in recent seasons and, on stats alone, appears to be the strongest import yet. Nicknamed “Tall Paul,” Walter stands at a whopping 203 cm, averaging 21 runs with the bat at a strike rate of 144 to go with an average of 26 with the ball, with an economy just below 9. On height and size alone, Walter will love the pace and bounce with both bat and ball in hand, which could help produce some thrilling cricket.

Will Prestwidge

Will Prestwidge

Will Prestwidge is an exciting young prospect for the Heat who has already shown his skills with the ball in hand at the top level. What fans are yet to see is how far and hard the left-hander can hit the ball. With more opportunities this season, Prestwidge should be capable of proving his worth with the ball as well as his ability to score runs late in the innings with the bat.

Matthew Kuhnemann

Matthew Kuhnemann

Matthew Kuhnemann seems to have surpassed Mitchell Swepson as the Heat’s front-line spinner, based on his most recent season in the BBL. In 17 bowling innings, he took 16 wickets at an average of 26.5, striking every 21 balls on average. Kuhnemann took part in Australia’s tour of India for the Border-Gavaskar series, where he will have learned from assistant coach Daniel Vettori, which should see him improve sharply for BBL13.

Brisbane Heat futures betting

The Brisbane Heat are an $8 chance to win the BBL13 competition with the top Australian bookmakers following their fairytale trip to the final against the Scorchers in BBL12. With Josh Brown, Spencer Johnson, and Nathan McSweeney all gaining more experience over the last 12 months, the Heat are looking to be in a solid position to start this summer’s competition. Add to the mix Colin Munro, Sam Billings, Michael Neser, and Paul Walter, and the sky is the limit for this team.

Brisbane Heat all-time XI

  1. Brendan McCullum
  2. Matthew Hayden
  3. Luke Pomersbach
  4. Chris Lynn
  5. Peter Forrest
  6. Jimmy Peirson
  7. Dan Christian
  8. Ben Cutting
  9. Mitchell Swepson
  10. Mark Steketee
  11. Mujeeb Ur Rahman

The international star power and experience of this Heat All-Time XI are unlike most in the BBL’s history. With a batting order of McCullum, Hayden, Pomersbach, and Lynn, only two batters would need to get a start for a 200+ total to be on the cards. Supported by Peirson, Christian, and Cutting the Heat, they have incredible depth in their batting.

Christian and Cutting are also exceptional bowlers in their own right, with Mark Steketee taking the new ball, while Swepson and Mujeeb Ur Rahman round out an incredible XI for the Heat.
