Defending champions Perth Scorchers Women will lock horns with the Brisbane Heat at Lilac Hill Park on Wednesday, November 9, in the 36th match of the Women’s Big Bash League (WBBL 2022).
Scorchers Women last faced the Adelaide Strikers Women in the tournament. Sophie Devine and Maddy Green's effort with the bat went in vain as they lost by seven wickets. They were able to score 37 and 36 runs, respectively, helping their side to a total of 119 on the scoreboard.
Looking to defend the lowly target, Piepa Cleary scalped two wickets but an economy of 9.67 did not make her the best bowler on show. Skipper Devine tried single-handedly to make a match of it - apart from contributing whilst batting, she bagged a wicket while conceding only 12 in two overs. Since the rest of the bowlers did not fulfill their duties, the Scorchers Women faced defeat
In comparison, the Heat are coming off a triumph as they encountered Hobart Hurricanes Women in their recent meeting. Precisely, their decision to chase at Blundstone Arena was vindicated as they dominated in both departments. Apart from picking up seven wickets courtesy of Nicola Hancock (4-32), Amelia Kerr (1-24), and Jess Jonassen (1-29), the exemplary efforts of their batting line-up secured a four-wicket win for BH-W. Kerr proved her all-around skills, scoring 41 off 33, while Laura Harris took charge of her middle-order duties with a thrilling 68 that came off 29 runs.
