THE TEAM NEWS

BRISBANE HEAT WOMEN

  • Reigning champions Brisbane Heat suffered a second heavy loss in a row as the form they showed in their opening match against Sydney Sixers has deserted them with Perth Scorchers able to come out on top of their most recent contest.
  • The Heat managed to post 147/6 thanks to 67 from Beth Mooney in what was her second half-century of this year’s competition but it proved to be short of what they could defend and they will rue some poor batting lower down the order.
  • Despite them not posting as many as they felt they could have achieved, it was still a defendable total but they struggled to take wickets for the second game in a row which allowed the Scorchers to surpass the total with ease in a nine-wicket loss.

HOBART HURRICANES WOMEN

  • Hobart Hurricanes’ unbeaten start to the Women’s Big Bash League came to an end as they were edged out by Adelaide Strikers in a tense affair in Brisbane with the Hurricanes falling short of their target.
  • The Hurricanes restricted the Strikers to 113/8 thanks to two wickets apiece from Tayla Vlaeminck, Nicola Carey and Maisy Gibson with the latter taking her tally for the competition to six wickets.
  • Despite that modest total, the Hurricanes were unable to reach their target and although they got themselves into a position of needing five from the final two balls, Carey was caught near the boundary off the penultimate ball which they could not recover from on the final delivery.

THE PREDICTION

Brisbane Heat have suffered two losses in a row and will be desperate to rediscover the type of performance that they delivered in their opening match of the tournament. They host a Hobart Hurricanes team who will be looking to bounce back from their first defeat after a narrow loss last time out and with the manner of defeats that the Heat have endured in their last two games, the Hurricanes can return to winning ways.
