THE TEAM NEWS

BRISBANE HEAT WOMEN

  • Brisbane Heat will be disappointed in their performance against Sydney Thunder as they failed to build on their spectacular victory over Sydney Sixers by falling to a seven-wicket defeat in their game with the Thunder.
  • Despite getting off to a relatively strong start, the last six in the order could only contribute 22 runs as they made 150/9 with the Heat living to rue that total as their bowlers could not defend it.
  • They allowed the Thunder to get off to a great start and despite a spell of three wickets for just eight runs, Alex Blackwell and Phoebe Litchfield combined for an unbeaten 97 to condemn the Heat to defeat.

PERTH SCORCHERS WOMEN

  • Perth Scorchers lost a narrow contest in their opening game of the Women’s Big Bash League as they were made to pay for only managing a relatively modest total of 132 which Melbourne Renegades were able to chase.
  • The Scorchers were perhaps disadvantaged by facing a Renegades side with two matches under their belt already but will still be disappointed by their performance after a second wicket partnership of 76 between Amy Jones and Natalie Sciver could not galvanise the rest of their side with the bat.
  • Most of the top order for the Renegades were able to make starts as they made inroads towards the total set by the Scorchers and despite taking six wickets, it was not enough to prevent defeat.

THE PREDICTION

Brisbane Heat looked like they would take some beating in their opening game after they hammered Sydney Sixers but were brought back down to earth with a seven-wicket loss against Sydney Thunder in their next game. They will look to get back on track here as they host Perth Scorchers who will be looking for their first win of the tournament but the reigning champions will be difficult to beat at home and can earn the victory.
