We are into the final stage of the Women’s Big Bash League 2021 and the Eliminator game would see the Brisbane Heat Women take on the Adelaide Strikers Women. The Brisbane Heat Women come here after a win against the Melbourne Renegades Women, and this would add to the side’s confidence. As for the Adelaide Strikers Women, they would have to come out of the shock defeat against Melbourne Stars Women.
The Adelaide Strikers Women bowling attack was torn apart in the last game and this would put high pressure on them. They are up against a very strong batting line-up and will have to make improvements in this department. It is a must-win game for both teams and there would be nerves in both games. It would be interesting to see which of the sides can deliver the goods here.
Jess Jonassen’s side got the boost they needed with their terrific show in the last game against the Melbourne Renegades Women. In a one-sided contest, the side dominated with the bat and the ball to register a 43-run win in the game. They have shared a good rivalry with Strikers Women in the past and Jonassen would like to win this game and make it to the Challenger game.
Georgia Redmayne and Grace Harris have scored lots of runs so far in the tournament and they would look to provide a steady start in this game. Georgia Voll played well in the last game and adds good firepower to the middle-order with Laura Kimmince and Mikayla Hinkley. They would also like to see good hitting from Jonassen and Ellie Johnston in this game.
Nicola Hancock and Courtney Sippel bowled brilliantly in the last game, and they would carry that confidence into this game. Jonassen made effective use of her experience in the last game and the same would be expected here. Nadine de Klerk, Poonam Yadav, and Harris add good variety to this attack and the side would like to see tight spells from them in this must-win game.

Tahlia McGrath would be upset with the form of her bowlers. The side comes into this game with a 9-wicket loss against the Melbourne Stars Women where they failed to defend a big score of 175 runs. McGrath would like to see better efforts from her bowlers in this must-win game. They are up against a very strong side and can’t afford to bowl as poorly as they did.
Katie Mack comes here after a big knock, and she would good into this game full of confidence and look to set up a good stand with Dane van Niekerk. The middle-order has good hitters of the ball in Laura Wolvaardt, Bridget Patterson, and Madeline Penna. In McGrath and Amanda Wellington, the side has power hitters who can add quick runs and this would add to their confidence.
Their bowlers would have to put behind the poor show in the last game. Megan Schutt did well but she would need good support with the new ball from McGrath. Sarah Coyte and Dane van Niekerk will have to keep the flow of runs under check in the middle overs. The side would also like to see better line and length from Wellington and Jemma Barsby.

Adelaide would see cloudy skies on November 24 and there are predictions for rains during the game. The wicket has been challenging and batters need to play to the merit of the ball. Setting scores here isn’t easy and hence the side batting first in this game shall like to put 170 runs on the board.
Adelaide Oval has short square boundaries and this offers good scoring opportunities to the batters. Fast bowlers get assistance from the surface with the new ball and can do early damage. Spinners haven’t found much support for track in the past and the shorter boundaries make it tough for them.
Six games have been played at this venue this season and in all the games the side chasing the score has won by big margins. Batting first here is a challenge as there is assistance for the bowlers and hence the side winning the toss is likely to opt for bowling first in this important game.
It is a high-stakes battle and the side losing the game would have to pack their bags. Adelaide Strikers Women come here after a massive loss. They would have to make big improvements on the bowling front after the poor show in the last game. Brisbane Heat Women ticked all the boxes in the last game and they have momentum on their side. This would make the side favorites to win this game.
