The fast bowler comes into the 14-man squad after missing selection for the past three matches.
Brisbane has won its past two matches and will look to make it three in a row to mark the 100th BBL game for wicket-keeper Jimmy Peirson tomorrow.
Peirson joins former captain Chris Lynn as BBL Heat players to bring up 100 games, joining WBBL duo Jess Jonassen and Laura Harris in registering the century milestone for the club.
Tomorrow’s match is the second game in a double-header with exclusive coverage on FOX and streaming on Kayo.
The match will be the Heat’s home game in the BBL Indigenous Round that has been held over the past week, with the team wearing its First Nations playing strip in its past two games.
The stories behind the Heat’s Indigenous jersey design, which was debuted last year and features a design created by local artist Delly McDonald and WBBL Brisbane Heat player Mikayla Hinkley, are as follows:
Front: flames of Heat logo, Gabba circle with players sitting, circle represents harmony and unity, bringing players and fans together.
Back: Brisbane River with its abundance of food, plus animal and human tracks. Rainbow serpent/snake represents both male and female. Circle represents Gabba, plus roads travelled to and from it by teams.
Sleeve: Centre circle is Gabba, alongside other water holes which used to be near the ground. The 87 black strokes on red earth represent the first-class wickets taken by Aboriginal cricketing trail-blazer, Eddie Gilbert (23 games for Qld).
Queensland Cricket this week announced its partnership with Deadly Choices, the nationally recognised preventative health program in Queensland.
Deadly Choices is an initiative of the Institute for Urban Indigenous Health (IUIH), which aims to empower Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to make healthy choices for themselves and their families, while encouraging individuals to access their local Community Controlled Health Service to complete an annual ‘Health Check’
As part of this, replica BBL/WBBL Heat jerseys based on the Heat’s First Nations playing strip will be offered as an incentive for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples who book in for a health check at any of the five participating Community Controlled Health Service organisations throughout South-East Queensland.
