Brisbane Heat and Titans will be looking to open their account after their respective defeats to Trinidad and Tobago and Chennai Super Kings.  The teams would want to shed their disappointment and make get on the board when they face each other in their Champions League Twenty 20 match on Tuesday.

While Brisbane lost to Trinidad & Tobago by 25 runs, Titans were hammered to a four-wicket defeat against Super Kings.

Brisbane failed with the bat in the last game against T&T, will be expecting its batsmen to show more responsibility. Titans on the other hand will be looking to bowl tight lines and contain the batsmen something which they were unable to do at Ranchi against Chennai.

Titans rely on Morne Morkel‘s experience and AB de Villiers‘s class to prevail against Brisbane Heats. They also have T20 specialist Roelef van der Merwe and seasoned campaigner Jacques Rudolph.

Teams:

Brisbane Heat: James Hopes (c), Joe Burns, Peter Forrest, Daniel Christian, Chris Lynn, Chris Hartley (wk), Ben Cutting, Chris Sabburg, Nathan Hauritz, Matthew Gale, Alister McDermott.

Titans: Henry Davids (c), Jacques Rudolph, Heino Kuhn, Roelof van der Merwe, AB de Villiers, Farhaan Behardien, David Wiese, Mangaliso Mosehle (wk), Morne Morkel, Marchant de Lange, Rowan Richards.
