Hobart Hurricanes Women and Brisbane Heat Women are set to see each other twice in the next few days in the ongoing Big Bash League. The first of the encounter will be played on Sunday at Launceston and the second will be played at the same venue a day later. Hobart Hurricanes are placed at the bottom of the table and with just six games remaining, their qualification to the top-four seems almost impossible. However, they can certainly cause a couple of upsets and spoil qualification chances of teams still in contention.
Contrary to their men's team, the Women's team are languishing at the bottom of the table with just a win in the eight matches they've played so far. Their only win was against Melbourne Stars where their batters guided them to a record total before their bowlers ran riot.
Their batters once again failed to live up to the expectations of their fans as no one except Smriti Mandhana, Heather Knight, S Daffara, and Stephanie Daffara, and Georgia Redmayne could get to double figures. Mandhana and Knight scored 35 each - which also happened to be the highest individual contribution from Hurricanes in that match. They could get to a total of 135 before getting bowled out.
Defending such a low total needed a special effort from their bowlers, but their all such hopes were drowned quickly by Rachel Priest and Haynes as provided Thunder with a quick-fire start. Phillips dismissed Priest in the third over of the innings, but a sensible knock from Haynes saw thunder secure the target with a little more than three overs to spare.

Brisbane Heat Women are currently third in the ladder and are marginally ahead of Perth Scorchers and Melbourne Stars. A loss here will allow the other teams to reduce the game. A win, however, will take Heat to the second spot in the points table, if other results go their way.
Brisbane Heat have one of the most explosive opening pairs in the tournament with Grace Harris and Beth Mooney. Harris already has a century to her name which would have imbibed a lot of confidence in her. They chased down a total of 137 against Perth Scorchers, in their last game, with considerable ease. Although none of their batters could score a fifty, contributions from almost everyone in their batting order saw them through.
Earlier with the ball, Haidee Birkett was their chief destructor of the day as she dismissed three Scorchers' batters at the expense of just 19 runs. Along with her, Delissa Kimmince played an important role in building up the pressure as he conceded just 20 in her four. Their bowlers laid a solid foundation required for a win by restricting Scorchers to a modest total before their batters sealed the deal with a sensible effort.
Beth Mooney, Grace Harris, Sammy Jo Johnson, Kirby Short, Jess Jonassen, Josie Dooley, Laura Harris, Delissa Kimmince, Laura Wolvaardt, Jemma Barsby, Haidee Birkett.
Looking at the points table, the upcoming fixture between the two sides can definitely be mistaken as a mismatch. Although the Hurricanes are lying at the bottom of the ladder, they have a quality side which can upset any team on their day. Brisbane Heat, however, have played better cricket in the competition so far and have been consistent in doing so which makes them firm favorites to register a win in the upcoming match and knock Hurricanes out of the tournament.
