BH-W won by 44 runs.
Player of the match: Laura Kimmince
 
Alright then! Just two more matches to go before we find out the winner of WBBL 2022. Sydney Sixers are already in the final and we will get to know their opponent tomorrow. It's going to be Adelaide Strikers vs Brisbane Heat. Both teams won one apiece in the league phase, and it's going to be a cracking contest at the same venue. Join us tomorrow at 1:40 pm IST for the live coverage, and until then, this is Pragadeesh signing off on behalf of my fellow colleague Pratyush. See yaa
Jess Jonassen: I can't get my serious face on. Obviously pleased with the result tonight. Our fielding was under par tonight apart for that catch from Jess Kerr. We are priding ourselves on different players stepping up. Someone of Wyatt's ability sets the tone for us at the top of the order. Laura Harris too, has been contributing and there are others who are capable of scoring as well. It was a tricky wicket but there was a shorter side too. So the match ups were key, not only with batters but with the dimensions as well. The outfield wasn't as quick either. We're supposedly a bit arrogant and if other teams are looking into our camps and talking about us, we are proud of that. If it's arrogance, I'm not sure. It's only confidence for our side.
Laura Harris is the Player of the Match. Here is what she has to say: My job is pretty much to go hell for leather anyway. We wanted to get to the 60-70 mark after 10 and then take the surge with wickets in hand. It's great to get the win. I'm not a highlights reel person, I leave that to Grace. I look out for things I did wrong and try to fix them. Some of them paid off. We felt like we hadn't played a 20-over game in a long time. We were ecstatic to come tonight for a whole game. No one did much today. Watched a few movies and had lunch. We've had a couple of chats about his not being the easiest season for us but if we can't perform now, then what are you doing?
Brisbane Heat beat Hobart Hurricanes by 44 runs
Danii Wyatt 52(38) | Lizelle Lee 47(42)
Jess Jonassen 4-22(4) | Amy Smith 4-21(4)

Turned out to be a comprehensive win for Brisbane Heat as they book their spot against Adelaide Strikers in the same venue tomorrow. Hobart Hurricanes got off to a good start as Lee and Villani set the tone for the chase by putting up a 61-run stand for the opening wicket, but they lost their way through in the middle overs. The spin trio dictated terms in the middle and made it hard for the Hobart Hurricanes' batters.

Losing the well-set Lizelle Lee in the first over of the power surge proved pivotal for the Heat to turn the tide in their favour. It was hard for the Hurricanes to gain any momentum at the back end as they lost five wickets for just 19 runs. Jess Jonassen picked up four wickets and she was ably supported by Amelia Kerr, Courtney Sippel and Charli Knott

19.6 Jess Jonassen to Rachel Trenaman, RUN OUT! THE BRISBANE HEAT MARCH ON! Length delivery on middle stump, Trenaman slogs it behind square and tries to hustle back for two. Not sure what happened there, but neither batter was in the frame when the runout was affected. So, the Hobart Hurricanes are knocked out! Brisbane Heat win by 44 runs.

Rachel Trenaman run out (Georgia Redmayne) 12 (12b 0x4 1x6 )
19.5 Jess Jonassen to Rachel Trenaman, SIX! Tossed up in the slot on middle stump, Trenaman gets down on one knee and clobbers her slog sweep to send the ball sailing over the mid-wicket boundary
19.4 Jess Jonassen to Amy Smith, arm-ball sliding into the right-hander, Smith steps out to swipe it to long-on for a single 
19.3 Jess Jonassen to Amy Smith, STIFLED APPEALS! Jonassen reviews. Arm ball sliding into the middle stump, Smith rocks back to keep this out into the off-side. The question is, has this hit bat first or pad first? Nope. Nowhere near the pad, all bat! Not out, it is!
Jess Jonassen is on a hat-trick

Amy Smith, RHB, walks in at no.10
19.2 Jess Jonassen to Maisy Gibson, STUMPED! Jonassen is on a hat-trick! Tossed up on length at the off-stump line, turns in with some extra bounce to sneak through the big gap between bat and pad, somehow missing the top of middle stump. Redmayne is alert though, enforcing the sharp stumping to send Gibson packing!

Maisy Gibson st Georgia Redmayne b Jonassen 0 (1b 0x4 0x6 )
Maisy Gibson, LHB, walks in at no.9
19.1 Jess Jonassen to Hayley Jensen, ANOTHER ONE BITES THE DUST! Wyatt makes no mistake this time! Flighted on the good length at middle stump, Jensen heaved this towards deep mid-wicket but it's right down the throat of the fielder. Wyatt does well to judge this to perfection, staying inside the boundary line to take the catch.

Jess Jonassen (3-0-15-2) comes back into the attack

End of a brilliant spell from Amelia Kerr. She used the conditions effectively and managed to pick up a wicket in her last over

18.6 Amelia Kerr to Rachel Trenaman, APPEALS! Not given. It was the wrong one at the good length, turning into the right-hander to crash high into the pads as she missed her sweep. Probably doing too much though!
18.5 Amelia Kerr to Hayley Jensen, on the good length at middle stump, Jensen plants her front foot across to swipe it to deep square leg
18.4 Amelia Kerr to Rachel Trenaman, tossed up full on the middle stump line, Trenaman sweeps it to deep mid-wicket for one
18.3 Amelia Kerr to Rachel Trenaman, flatter leg break outside the off-stump, Trenaman looks for the big hoick but fails to connect, no run
18.2 Amelia Kerr to Hayley Jensen, dropped it a touch short on the middle stump, Jensen rocks back to pull it to deep square leg
