LIVE: Hurricanes bat in Brisbane

Hobart Hurricanes captain George Bailey has won the toss and elected to bat at the Gabba against a Brisbane Heat team missing the injured Chris Lynn.

Lynn was set to play in his final BBL match before joining the Australian one-day international squad, but was ruled out of Wednesday night’s game and this month’s series against England with a calf issue.

Bailey had no hesitation in electing to bat, with the Hurricanes selecting the same XI that have won their last three matches.

Top-order batsman Marnus Labuschagne will come into the Heat side in the absence of Lynn.

Fifth-placed Hobart (3-2) can leapfrog the Heat (4-2) into fourth with victory.
