The second semi-final of the WBBL 2020 season sees the defending champions Brisbane Heat take on Sydney Thunder. This is another mouth-watering clash between two teams that absolutely deserve to be within two wins of a title.
Sydney Thunder set the pace early on before it stumbled and fell down the table. It has, however, won its previous four matches to come into the semi-final in good form. Brisbane Heat had a poor start to its WBBL 2020 campaign and then recovered brilliantly.
It has won its previous 8 matches in a row. That means it has defeated every other WBBL team in the cycle and comes into this match full of confidence.
Brisbane Heat vs Sydney Thunder WBBL 2020 is going to be played at the North Sydney Oval, Sydney on the 26th of November 2020.
The emergence of some brilliant youngsters like Georgia Voll is why the WBBL keeps providing such a strong base for the Australian national team. Voll has been instrumental in the middle-order for Brisbane Heat and is going to be key in this upcoming match either.
Having a stable core allows the other batters like Grace Harris, Jess Jonassen, and Georgia Redmayne to be more adventurous. We know how dangerous Grace Harris can be on her day. She could pull off a match-winning inning or fall early and so the freedom to play her natural game is a big advantage.
Brisbane Heat has been batting pretty well recently thanks to the contributions of Laura Harris and Maddy Green down the order. There is a lot of depth in the batting and many players that can put their hand up.
Jess Jonassen, Grace Harris, Amelia Kerr, and Delissa Kimmince are the leading bowlers of the side. They bring with them a lot of experience as well. Grace and Kerr have been picking wickets with ease in recent matches and will the ones to look out for against Sydney Thunder.

While the Thunder team has not been as consistent as Brisbane Heat has, it may be argued that they have been better than Heat in shorter passages of the WBBL. Heather Knight is having the WBBL of her dreams while Phoebe Litchfield is another teenage sensation that seems destined for Australian colors.
Thunder has a batting lineup that can equal Heat on its day.
Tammy Beaumont, Rachel Trenaman, Rachel Haynes, and Phoebe Litchfield are a formidable lineup that can easily post a big score of chase down anything that they need to.
Shabnim Ismail, Samantha Bates, Sammy-Jo Johnson, and the all-rounders have been very good with the ball this season. They have been able to apply constant pressure on their opponents and shock them with the extra pace at their disposal.
If there is a team that you do not want to come up against in a knockout then it is Sydney Thunder.

There is no rain that is expected to fall in Sydney on match day. We also expect some of the best batting conditions of the entire tournament to be on offer We saw close to 400 runs being scored at the North Sydney Oval just a few days back. The pitch is flat and the ball comes on nicely. The outfield is very quick as well while being short in dimensions.
We are going to stick with Brisbane Heat in this match. They seem to have found a different gear to their cricket and the team is able to respond to tough situations very well. The presence of power at the top and in the middle-order makes its batting dangerous while the experience in the bowling should hold it in good stead.
Bet on Brisbane Heat to win.
