Sydney Thunder vs Brisbane Heat
Hales Thunder Top Runscorer ($3.40)

The Thunder and Heat launch their respective BBL11 campaigns on Monday night, and the former have opened slight $1.80 favourites, with even money about the latter.

It’s all about the big hitters in this contest, with one of the world’s top-ranked T20 batsmen, Alex Hales leading the way again for the Sydney franchise, while the ever-dangerous Chris Lynn will once again carry the hopes of the Sunshine State.

I personally think that this match could fall either way, so I am instead going to keep my focus on the runscorers.
