Big Bash League: Brisbane Heat’s Alex Ross ready for Melbourne Stars BBL clash
Brisbane batsman Alex Ross isn’t one to be lured into the pre-match war of the words – he just wants to let his bat put the heat on the underachieving Melbourne Stars.
Canberra product Ross has been named in Brisbane’s 13-man squad for their Big Bash League season opener against the Stars at The Gabba on Wednesday night.
The two sides have been trading barbs in the lead up to their clash with Stars all-rounder Marcus Stoinis saying teammate Adam Zampa has devastating Heat batsman Chris Lynn “covered”.
Heat all-rounder Ben Cutting had a short and sharp response for the Stars’ confidence, saying “it’s just a typical Melbourne thing” that has them “thinking they’re better than us in every way”.
The banter left Ross with a wry grin – he’s just keen to get on the park with the Heat “well poised” to launch a raid on the title.
