What : Brisbane Heat Women VS Perth Scorchers Women (Semifinal 2)
When : 26/11/2020 ( 13.50 IST)
Where : North Sydney Oval
What to Expect
The North Sydney Oval has traditionally remained to be a high scoring ground, Chasing will certainly be preferred when the dew conditions are taken into factor and the firepower in both the camps. Expect a lot of firepower from both teams and spin to play a major role.
Brisbane Heat Women
The team will primarily rely on their world class all-rounders to see them through with Jess Jonassen and Grace Harris shouldering that responsibility. The Kimmince sisters along with Georgia Prestwidge will lead their Bowling lineup with Amelia Kerr in support. Considering they finished just behind the Melbourne Stars Women in the WBBL table, They will certainly start as favorites.
BHW Starting XI : Grace Harris, Jess Jonassen, Amelia Kerr, Georgia Voll, Georgia Redmayne, Charli Knott, Laura Kimmince, Delissa Kimmince, Nadine De Klerk, Courtney Sippel, Georgia Prestwidge.
Sydney Thunder Women
This team will primarily rely on the power of their middle order combined with the experience of their bowlers to power them through to the finals, Shabnim Ismail will be instrumental against Grace Harris along with Heather Knight at the top of the order but with all due respect the game changer can be without a question Sammy Jo Johnson with her freakish hitting.
STW Starting XI : Tasmin Beaumount, Rachel Haynes, Heather Knight, Rachel Trenamen, Phoebe Litchfield, Tahila Wilson, Sammy Jo-Johnson, Hannah Darlington, Lauren Smith, Shabnim Ismail, Samantha Bates
