Mohali: Handed defeats in their opening matches, Brisbane Heat and Titans will look to put behind the disappointment and make quick amends when they face each other in their Champions League Twenty 20 match on Tuesday.
While Brisbane lost to Trinidad & Tobago by 25 runs, Titans slumped to a four-wicket defeat against Chennai Super Kings. Come Tuesday, the two teams will be desperate to put some points on the board. The depleted outfit, which failed miserably with the bat in the last game, will be expecting its batsmen to show more responsibility.
Chasing a modest 136-run target, Brisbane were bundled out for a meagre 110 with only opener Joe Burns scoring a valuable 43-ball 45.
Brisbane would hope that captain James Hopes, who has a plenty of international experience and having also captained IPL side Delhi DareDevils, give them a solid start along with Burns against the Titans.
All-rounder Dan Christian will also have to carry the batting burden. He has been the trump card for Brisbane for the past two seasons and their chances in the tournament may rest on his shoulders.
