Two teams that were unable to pick up the four points in their first attempts will do battle when the Titans take on the Brisbane Heat in the CLT20 on Tuesday.

The match in Mohali should suit the two teams a lot better, even if the Titans impressed with the bat in their first game against the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in Ranchi.

The Mohali wicket does aid the fast bowlers a little bit more and is also helpful to the batsmen as it comes onto the bat nicely - something that the Otago Volts made full use of during the qualifiers.

The Brisbane Heat were extremely disappointing in their first match against Trinidad & Tobago, crashing to a 25-run loss after being bowled out for a mere 110.

"We are very disappointed at the moment," Heat's Joe Burns said after the match on Sunday. "It is a tough loss to gulp down.

"Our batsmen did not adjust to the conditions under lights and it is an area that we need to improve for the next game. We have to improve soon if we have to win the rest of the games now. There is no more chance to make errors. We will go back and improve for the rest of the tournament."

The Australian side will have to do a lot better against the Titans, who impressed in their match against CSK, scoring 185 in the first innings.

If the Heat are to make an impression in their second match, they will also have to find a way to stop A.B. De Villiers, who scored a splendid half-century against CSK.

"I love playing in this country," De Villiers said. "The Indian crowds are very loud and it's nice to give them some entertainment and something to cheer about. These big crowds really get me going as well."

The Brisbane Heat do not have as many familiar faces as the Titans side, and perhaps nobody as destructive as De Villiers. It will come down to some good teamwork, if the Heat are to top the Titans.
