THE TEAM NEWS

SYDNEY THUNDER WOMEN

  • Sydney Thunder suffered a third consecutive loss in the Women’s Big Bash League as their promising start to the competition continues to unravel and they must end this losing streak as soon as possible or leave themselves with a mammoth task to qualify for the knockout stages.
  • Their latest defeat came in the all-Sydney affair against the Sixers but their opponents proved far too good for them with both bat and ball in what was a lacklustre effort by the Thunder.
  • The Sixers posted 152/3 but their response got off to a slow start and the required run rate continued to climb as they lost regular wickets which saw them fall 40 runs short having stuttered to 112/8.

BRISBANE HEAT WOMEN

  • Brisbane Heat made it three consecutive wins and did so in style as they produced another dominant display to defeat Melbourne Stars as the reigning champions loom as a real contender to make it back-to-back titles.
  • The Heat were impressive in their previous two wins against Adelaide Strikers and Sydney Sixers and they are able to back that up again thanks to a solid batting display in which they had to chase down a respectable total.
  • The Stars were able to post 165/4 on a good wicket but Beth Mooney’s composed knock of 70 not out guided her side to victory as she put on 92 with Mandy Green for the opening wicket before an unbeaten stand of 76 with Jess Jonassen resulted in the nine-wicket triumph.

THE PREDICTION

Brisbane Heat have hit a good patch of form and look set to have a big tilt at retaining their crown. They head to Sydney Thunder in search of a fourth successive victory and will be confident of doing so coming up against a team who have struggled of late and have lost their last three. The Heat continue to be led by Beth Mooney who is averaging 88.2 runs so far and her magnificent form should continue here as she helps her side make it four wins in a row.
