Brisbane Heat Women and Perth Scorchers Women are set to face each other in Match 23 of the Women’s Big Bash League (WBBL 2022) on Saturday at Allan Border Field in Brisbane.
Both teams are coming into the game after being thrashed in their last match and will look to do better against each other. Surprisingly, both the Heat and Scorchers faced off against the Adelaide Strikers in their last played game in Brisbane. Nevertheless, despite their respective losses, they may have gathered exposure to the conditions.
The Heat, whilst facing the Strikers in their last match, conceded 140 runs which could have been chased down. Jess Jonassen and Nicola Hancock did wonders with three-wicket hauls, whereas Pooja Vastrakar’s 1/20 runs was a useful economical spell.
Later, whilst chasing, Charli Knott turned out to be the top-scorer, scoring 29 at a strike rate of 100. Jess single-handedly tried to handle things, showing off her all-round performances as she scored 23* off 17. However, it went in vain since Strikers bowlers completely got control of the innings.
Meanwhile, title-defender Scorchers faced a stroke of bad luck in a very close encounter. While batting first, they were able to gather only 111 runs, with Beth Mooney scoring 34 from 34, Amy Edgar contributing 27* from 24, and Mathilda Carmichael’s 17* from 21.
The Scorchers bowlers tried well to defend an ordinary score but failed as Strikers finally went off to win by six wickets, with nine balls to spare. Lily Mill’s efforts showed the dedication she had to win it big for her team as she conceded 17 runs and picked up a three-wicket haul.
Sophie Devine grabbed one of the four Strikers’ wickets. Despite the loss, the encounter portrayed Perth’s bowling strength.

Brisbane Heat Women vs Perth Scorchers Women Match Prediction
The second-placed Brisbane Heat in the WBBL 2022 points table are enjoying a great stint this season. They are placed second, just below the Adelaide Strikers, and NRR is what has set the two teams apart. The Heat have managed to win four out of their six games and have gathered eight points.
However, the title defenders Scorchers are a spot below the Heat, winning one lesser game than them. Having six points to their name, they will be looking to compete with the Heat on Saturday to occupy the second spot, or if they beat their opponents by a significant margin, they can even pursue first place in the WBBL 2022 points table.
Prediction: Perth Scorchers Women to win this game.
