The 45th Match of the ongoing Women’s Big Bash League (WBBL 2020) has Perth Scorchers Women taking on the two-time defending champions Brisbane Heat Women at the Hurstville Oval in Sydney on Wednesday, 18th November. It is the opening match of the quadruple header Wednesday.
The last time these two teams played against each other, it was the season opener at the North Sydney Oval Stadium. Brisbane Heat comfortably chased a total of 133 well within 17 overs and with seven wickets in hand. Grace Harris played a handy knock of 53 being the star player for the Heats. Our Women’s BBL Match Prediction predicts that PRSW shall win this match on the 18th, which seems like the clash of the royals considering each of the team’s form.
Brisbane Heat comes into this game on the back of four consecutive fabulous games with captain Jess Jonassen and Grace Harris starring for the defending champions. Adding the strength and class of Georgia Redmayne to the mix only mulls the deal for the Heat, who are firmly in the running for a place in the top-four. The Heat are well deserving of entering into the playoffs. Despite a losing start to their season, they’ve bounced back in all forms and made a comeback. Brisbane Heat would ideally fancy their chances against an equally robust Perth Scorchers side, looking to reverse their fortunes as soon as possible. With their bunch of all-rounders turning up with significant contributions consistently, the Heat will consider themselves the favorites.
Their opponents, the Perth Scorchers, have also done well this WBBL season with five wins in eight completed games. Their skipper Sophie Devine has starred with the bat reiteratively with the duo of Nicole Bolton and Beth Mooney chipping in with vital contributions tirelessly. They have made a strong position on the points table.
Although these two sides sit equal numbers on the WBBL points table, the Scorchers are the undoubted favorites for this game with a well-rounded squad in their roster. However, the Brisbane Heat do have momentum on their side, which can be a great leveler in this much-awaited clash at Sydney on Wednesday. With two of the best teams locking horns at the Hurstville Oval, we should be in for a riveting contest.
