Ludeman to put Heat on attack



It's top versus bottom in tonight's Big Bash match, but we should still see a keenly contested encounter. The Brisbane Heat will be full of confidence after their first victory of the season, whilst the Strikers come into the game as the form team of the competition.

There doesn't seem to be much value on offer in terms of head to head betting, so again we will look towards some player props. Tim Ludeman has had a quiet start to BBL 05, averaging only 18 with bat. However, I think he's a massive chance to hit back tonight. He should enjoy the true Gabba pitch and the Heat bowlers are the most inferior in the competition.

Ludeman and his new opening partner of Mahela Jayawardene seem like a much more effective duo than that of Simmons and Ludeman, as illustrated by putting on 46 against the Scorchers (best bowling line-up in comp). I think they can outscore the Heat's openers who are very hit and miss.
