Brisbane Heat players to watch

Max Bryant – Brendon McCullum’s retirement has left a big hole at the top of the order for Brisbane, but Bryant showed last season that he has the tools to succeed at this level. All he needs is a little more composure and consistency.

AB de Villiers – He won’t arrive until the back end of the season, but AB will give the Heat a shot of serious star quality on the road to the BBL finals. If there is such a thing as an improvement on McCullum, this is it.

Zahir Khan – The Brisbane bowling attack boasts not one, but two Afghani spinners this season. Zahir’s slow left-armers have snared 51 wickets in his 40 Twenty20 games, and at an impressive strike rate of 17.0.

Brisbane Heat futures betting

The Heat missed finals last summer, but Australia’s leading online bookmakers are forecasting a much better show this time around. There is plenty of variance in the market, however, so you can find some real value on Brisbane if you do your homework and check out all of our trusted betting sites.

Most wickets betting
He might be 37 years of age, but Ben Laughlin is still one of the very best seam bowlers in T20 cricket. The BBL’s all-time leading wicket-taker should see plenty of action with James Pattinson away on international duty.

Most runs betting
With BJ McCullum retired and Joe Burns in the Test squad, Chris Lynn is the obvious threat in the Brisbane top order. The burley Queenslander only needs a few runs to overtake Michael Klinger as the all-time leading runscorer in the BBL.
