The Eliminator match of the eighth edition of the Women’s Big Bash League will take place between Brisbane Heat and Hobart Hurricanes at Adelaide at the Karen Rolton Oval as the tournament is just a couple of days away from getting its champion. Despite finishing two points ahead of Hobart Hurricanes, Brisbane Heat struggled as the group stage came to an end.
Due to their inability to win three of their past five games, they were denied a position in the challenger and now face the additional risk of an elimination game against a team that has already defied expectations and a recent trend to reach this point. Since the second edition of the competition, Hurricanes have been eliminated in the group stage every year, thus this is already progress.
After suffering a hamstring injury, Georgia Redmayne is back following a successful recovery, giving Brisbane a massive benefit. Grace Parsons might make her WBBL debut, while pacer Courtney Sippel also returns. Both teams will be desperate to win this contest so as to increase their chances of facing Sydney Sixers in the summit clash.
