Competing in the Sunshine State, the Brisbane Heat are Queensland’s representative in the Big Bash League. The men in teal play most of their home games at The Gabba, but do play at Metricon Stadium occasionally as well.

While Brisbane weren’t able to keep hold of AB de Villiers, they snapped up fellow South African great Morne Morkel. They have also retained Mujeeb Ur Rahman and highly touted English batsman Tom Banton for this year’s Big Bash.

The Heat got off to a dismal start last season and couldn’t do enough to scratch and claw their way to a finals berth. They’ll look to remedy that this time around and accumulate early points despite the absence of some of their Australian stars.
