It was only a week ago that Brisbane Heat and Melbourne Renegades faced each other. The latter did give the table-toppers a real scare before Delissa Kimmince held her nerve to help the Heat win by six runs.
It’s largely been all about Brisbane Heat this tournament. They lost two out of their first three games but now, they’ve built a superb seven-match winning streak. While most of their wins have been convincing and comfortable ones, the last two came by tight margins. The batting did wobble a touch but the bowlers came to the party and eventually delivered under pressure.
Meanwhile, Melbourne Renegades haven’t been able to pool a proper string of wins together. Every time they do, they lose a few in a row as well. The sequence has been winning a few in a row and lose a few again in a row. Thus, with five wins and six losses, the Renegades are fifth on the points table with 10 points.
It’s been all Beth Mooney in this tournament so far. No other batter is even close to the Australian left-hander this WBBL. She has amassed 536 runs and averages 67.00. Moreover, she has six half-centuries to her name as well. Apart from her, Jess Jonassen has been brilliant. Not only with the bat but also with the ball. She is striking at almost 130 with the bat while she has picked up 17 wickets with the ball. She averages 16.82 with the ball and has an economy of 6.35.
The other batters have blown hot and cold and it’s on the back of some fine bowling that the Heat has won so many games. As mentioned, Jonassen is the leading wicket-taker while Sammy-Jo Johnson is not too far behind. The 27-year-old has picked up 16 wickets and is looking very good. Delissa Kimmince has also chipped in really well and has taken 15 wickets this season. Amelia Kerr and Georgia Prestwidge have been perfect fill-ins as well. Brisbane Heat looks well-rounded and set to top the table.

There are two batters on the back of whom the Melbourne Renegades batting line-up has largely depended. And that is Danielle Wyatt at the top and Jessica Duffin in the middle. Both of them have scored more than 300 runs and have been consistent. Moreover, their strike-rates have been good too.
But the Renegades will be disappointed with Tammy Beaumont. The England opener has scored 230 runs and has struggled throughout the season so far. She has a strike-rate of 95.43 and hasn’t even scored a single half-century. Anna Lanning impressed in her maiden outing in this season as she stroked her way to a well-made 73.
The two-star bowlers Molly Strano and Maitlan Brown failed to deliver in the last game and were expensive. But they are the only bowlers to have more than 10 wickets in this competition for the Renegades. Lea Tahuhu has been pretty impressive too. The New Zealand quick hasn’t picked up too many wickets but has been very economical.

The weather in Brisbane is expected to be mostly sunny. It is an afternoon start which means temperatures will be at their peak as well. But the pitch here has been a touch indifferent with only one of the four teams batting first being able to score more than 140. It is slightly on the slower side.
This is the fifth and final game at the Allan Border Field in Brisbane of this fifth edition of the WBBL and there are no more games scheduled at this venue this year. It has mostly produced low-scoring games this season. It will host a few Women’s T20 World Cup matches later in February.
Three out of the four games played at this Allan Border Field in Brisbane this season have been won by teams batting second. More teams have also won chasing. Hence, the trend could well continue. The team winning the toss will look to bowl first and assess the conditions before chasing the target down.
In this season, Brisbane Heat has become the team to beat. After a shaky start, the momentum they’ve picked up has been superb. They look very well-balanced and are working like a well-oiled machine too. There is little doubt that they will go into this game as favorites and will be aiming to top the table with two matches to go.
