Match Preview

Being on top of the points table and winning your last five matches will always be the ideal scenario. Which team wouldn’t want that and Brisbane Heat are certainly in a commanding position with 14 points from 10 matches. However, nothing can give you more belief and confidence than beating a strong Sydney Sixers team in Sydney with a last-ball six.

That is exactly what Courtney Webb managed to do when five runs were required off the last delivery and Marizanne Kapp was the one who had the responsibility to defend it. The feat becomes all the more remarkable considering that Webb was struggling for most of her inning. In the end, though, Melbourne Renegades would have happily taken the 2-wicket win and the two points resulting out of that victory as it solidified their #4 spot in the points table.

For Brisbane Heat, it was business as usual for star batswomen Beth Mooney against Perth Scorchers as her 60-run knock helped her breach the 500-run mark for this season. She was provided ample support by Jess Jonassen's steady 32 off 35 deliveries as Brisbane Heat comfortably chased down Perth Scorchers mediocre total of 112-8. This came on the back of a very disciplined bowling performance from the team's bowlers with quite a few Perth Scorchers batters failing to convert their starts.

Teams Preview

Melbourne Renegades Women Preview

Regular skipper Jess Duffin who was also Melbourne Renegades' top run-scorer until the last match sat out the game against Sydney Sixers due to illness. In her absence, Melbourne needed a combination of players to stand up and it happened to perfection with stand-in skipper Molly Strano and Lea Tahuhu coming up with brilliant spells to restrict Sydney Sixers to a total of 139-4.

With the bat, it was Danielle Wyatt held Melbourne's inning together as wickets kept tumbling around her. Her fifty along with Courtney Webb's 34 run knocks which included a late flourish helped Melbourne upset the odds and get over the line against Sydney Sixers.

Melbourne Renegades Women Predicted Playing XI:

Sophie Molineux, Danielle Wyatt, Tammy Beaumont, Josie Dooley (WK), Erica Kershaw/Jess Duffin (C), Georgia Wareham, Maitlan Brown, Carly Leeson, Molly Strano, Lea Tahuhu.

Brisbane Heat Women Preview

It has already been a remarkable season for Beth Mooney and she does not look like stopping any time soon. It looks like every time someone talks about how Brisbane Heat's batting is over-reliant on Beth Mooney, she comes up with a match-winning fifty.

Given how well Brisbane Heat's bowlers fared against Perth Scorchers, a match-winning knock wasn’t perhaps necessary but Mooney and Jess Jonassen safely guided the team game.

Earlier in the match, Jess Jonassen and Sammy Jo-Johnson used the favorable bowling conditions at the Drummoyne Oval to their advantage and made life very tough for the Perth Scorchers batters. Jonassen, in particular, was the pick of the bowlers with figures of 4-23. Remarkable, this was Jonassen's second four-wicket haul in two days. Meanwhile, Delissa Kimmince also continued her good run of form with a neat spell. With either Beth Mooney or the bowlers often putting match-winning efforts, it is becoming increasingly difficult to beat Brisbane Heat.

Brisbane Heat Women Predicted Playing XI:

Beth Mooney (WK), Maddy Green, Sammy Jo-Johnson, Jess Jonassen, Grace Harris, Laura Harris, Kirby Short (C), Delissa Kimmince, Mikayla Hinkley, Georgia Prestwidge.

Pitch And Weather Conditions

Weather Conditions

The last game Brisbane Heat played at the Junction Oval was against Melbourne Stars on 14th November and a target of 166 was comfortably chased down by the visitors. It is not that it was just this match which reflected how good the Junction Oval is for batting as teams have always tended to score a lot of runs at this venue over the last few years.

Venue Details

At the Junction Oval this season, the average first innings total has been 142.5 till now. While the average score might be on the lower side, it would be unwise to think that it would be a par total as most of the teams who have scored lesser or slightly more than that have found themselves on the losing side.

In fact, as mentioned above Brisbane Heat even chased down 166. Apart from producing batting friendly-pitches which should attract spectators, the Junction Oval which is in the outskirts of Melbourne has state-of-the-art indoor and outdoor facilities and players have regularly give rave reviews for the same.

Toss: To Bowl

Already a lot has been mentioned about how Junction Oval regularly presents good batting wickets. Apart from that, the curator at the venue has also been leaving some green tinge on the wicket. This might further help the captains in choosing to bowl first.

Winning Prediction

We are not going to go against an in-form Brisbane Heat outfit. It would be only wise to predict that they will go away with a victory.

If the opposite is going to happen, then two things have to go in favor of Melbourne Renegades. Skipper Jess Duffin has to return and leg-spinner Georgia Wareham has to show at least a glimpse of the ability that has made her a regular for the Australian senior team.

Brisbane Heat to win this game!
