04:50 AM UTC: Hobart Hurricanes vs Brisbane Heat
Home team Hobart Hurricanes is going to host Brisbane Heat for another encounter in the Women’s Big Bash League. Heat stands at the top of the table with two wins and a single loss while Hobart is at the third-last place with a win, two losses, and a washed-out game.
Heat’s bombastic top-order
Brisbane Heat has received tremendous contributions from openers Georgia Redmayne and Grace Harris throughout the tournament. While Kimmince provides hitting ability in the middle-order, Georgia Voll has also shown her striking power. Skipper Jess Jonassen can also close out well and the team’s batting has clicked so far.
Hurricanes inconsistent batting
Hobart has not been consistent batting-wise. Except a rollicking century, skipper Rachel Priest has struggled to get going. Mignon du Preez has only provided one major contribution in four games while Naomi Stalenberg has shown promise but is yet to play a decisive innings. Richa Ghosh has also cooled down after a couple of decent performances while Nicola Carey is yet to show something special with Ruth Johnston not make much of an impression as an opener.
Heat has the number one T20 bowler in Jess Jonassen paired with Poonam Yadav, both capable of taking wickets and stemming the run flow. Nicola Hancock is a speedster while Prestwidge has been immaculate. Meanwhile, for the Hurricanes, Molly Strano has been the pick of the bowlers while Tayla Vlaemnick, Belinda Vakarewa, Nicola Carey, and Amy Smith are yet to see some consistency.
