Brisbane Heat players to watch

Max Bryant
Brendon McCullum’s retirement left a big hole at the top of the order for Brisbane, but Bryant has shown that he has the tools to succeed at this level. All he needs is a little more composure and consistency. He made a lot of promising starts last summer; now he has to go on and make some big scores.

Jack Wildermuth
Wildermuth was solid with the ball in his first season back in Brisbane, but his batting – 75 runs at 9.38 in nine innings – left a bit to be desired. Perhaps his opportunities were limited down the order, but Heat fans will expect to see a bit more output from the man who was brought in to replace stalwart allrounder Ben Cutting.

Mujeeb Ur Rahman
Nobody was quite sure what to expect from this guy when he joined the Heat three years ago as a teenager, but Mujeeb has proved to be an absolute gem. The Afghani spinner is one of the most economical bowlers in the BBL, going at just 6.14 per over, while his lower-order hitting has helped get his side out of a jam on more than one occasion.

Brisbane Heat futures betting

The Heat made the finals last summer, yet the latest BBL outright odds at Australia’s leading online bookmakers suggest most punters are expecting them to finish well back in the pack this year. If you fancy them to finish in the top five, get on early to ensure you get the best value possible.

Most wickets betting
He might not be the most fashionable player in the competition, but Mark Steketee is as consistent as anyone at this level. With a strike rate of 16.6 over 53 BBL matches, you can bank on the Queensland seamer to be right up there among the top wicket-takers this summer.

Most runs betting
Why would you put your money on anyone but Chris Lynn? The Brisbane Heat skipper is the all-time leading runscorer in the BBL and will look to widen the gap on his rivals this season. Among players who have hit 500 or more runs in the Big Bash, only Alex Hales (152.11) has a better strike rate than Lynn’s 151.05.
