About the Match

It’s going to be a top of the table clash in the WBBL as Brisbane heat takes on the Sydney Sixers. Both the teams have been doing very well in the Women’s BBL this season. The defending champions and pre-tournament favorites, Sydney Sixers, lost their first match but have since won their next four matches convincingly.

Brisbane Heat also lost its opening match but has since recovered to have three wins from its five matches. The WBBL table is so tightly packed together that a couple of wins can change the entire dimension of the league standings.

With the top order of both teams firing on all cylinders, this could be one of the more entertaining WBBL matches we have seen so far.

Match Preview

Sydney Sixers Women

There is no doubt in our mind that the Sydney Sixers have the strongest batting lineup in the entire BBL. The side has Alyssa Healy, considered by many to be the most dangerous batter in women’s cricket, and Elyse Perry, who has been on an absolute rampage.

The Sydney Sixers are not shy about pushing its two best batters right at the top of the order and allowing them to take charge from the first ball. This is a tactic that we wish more teams would employ because under-utilization of resources is one of the common themes across WBBL teams.

While it would be ideal for the openers to bat through every game, that is not going to realistically happen. The depth in the Sydney Sixers side should be able to handle a top-order if it happens.

There is Garnder, Burns, Niekerk, and Kapp all to follow the superstar openers. The Sydney Sixers are loaded with batting and this is why they can afford to go hard from the first ball.

We would like to keep on riding the coattails of the openers and back one of them to be the top scorer this time around as well.

Kapp is not only a useful middle order player but also the leader of the bowling attack. She took four wickets in the last match and has been very good at keeping the runs down as well. With Gardner, Cheatle, Niekerk, and Perry in the side, the Sydney Sixers have plenty of options to call upon.

Sydney Sixers Women Starting Lineup

Ellyse Perry, Alyssa Healy, Ashleigh Gardner, Erin Burns, Sara McGlashan, Dane van Niekerk, Marizanne Kapp, Hayley Silver-Holmes, Lauren Cheatle, Lauren Smith, Tahlia Wilson.


Brisbane Heat Women

Brisbane Heat blew away the Melbourne Stars by 10 wickets, getting to their target of 133 in just 10.5 overs. That result was made possible by an absolutely unbelievable inning from Grace Harris as she smashed 100 off just 42 deliveries.

That inning was studded by 13 boundaries and six hits over the fence.

Harris has been threatening to do something special in the last few matches as she was going hard at the bowling from the very beginning. In this match, though, everything she tried came off and the opposition had no answers.

The spotlight is going to shine brightly on Harris after this inning and it will be interesting to see how she responds. We have a feeling her methods are not going to come off too often but when they do, it is going to be something special to watch.

Brisbane Heat has got its batting together after a poor first game thanks to contributions from other players as well. Mooney, Johnson, Short, and Jonassen are all decent batters. Player to player, it is difficult to see Brisbane Heat match the Sydney Sixers in batting might.

Someone will have to play another very special inning to be able to outgun the Sydney Sixers in our opinion.

This is why the Brisbane Heat bowling will be the decisive factor in this match. If their bowlers are able to keep the Sydney Sixers to a par target then we think Brisbane Heat has a chance to pull off an upset.

Their bowling has plenty of options and as many as seven players bowled in the last match as well. Early wickets will be key and possible someone like Jonassen or Kimmince will have to take the lead.

For the Brisbane Heat’s perspective, they could not be meeting the Sydney Sixers in better form.

Brisbane Heat Women Starting Lineup

Beth Mooney, Grace Harris, Sammy Jo Johnson, Kirby Short, Jess Jonassen, Sune Luus, Delissa Kimmince, Laura Wolvaardt, Laura Harris, Jemma Barsby, Haidee Birkett.

Pitch and Conditions

The WBBL match between the Sydney Sixers and Brisbane Heat is going to be played at the Sydney Cricket Ground, Sydney. The weather in Sydney has not been the best with some thunderstorms hitting the area. The conditions can change around pretty quickly, though, and so hopefully we will be able to get a full game in.

The pitch should be good for batting and the boundaries are brought in to allow for a high scoring game.

Match Prediction

These are two good teams with winning momentum. The Sydney Sixers are the stronger side with more international experience to bank upon. We think they will be able to withstand the threat from Brisbane Heat and come out victorious in front of its home crowd.

Back the Sydney Sixers to win.
