Toss – Won by Brisbane Heat Women and elected to bat first
1st Innings Summary – Brisbane Heat lost both the openers within first five overs. Skipper Kirby Short also got out early without making any material contribution. But the vital 40-run partnership between Sammy-Jo Johnson and Jess Jonassen and their individual contributions helped the team put up a competitive total. Erin Burns was the star bowler for Sydney Sixers as she took three wickets in her four overs’ spell by conceding just 20 runs in the process.
2nd Innings Summary – Sydney Sixers saw a complete batting collapse as they lost opener Alyssa Healy on the very first ball and were reduced to 25-4 in 3.5 overs. Although South African duo Dane van Niekerk and Marizanne Kapp tried to play safely but that was not enough to pick up the team from the batting debacle as the entire team got out in 18 overs. All the bowlers bowled brilliantly and shared wickets among themselves as they never allowed the opponents to make a comeback in the match.
Player of the match – All-rounder Sammy-Jo Johnson continuing her golden run in the tournament as she made another half century in just 30 balls including four 4s and three sixes and took three wickets in four overs while bowling
Brisbane Heat Women – 154/7 (20 overs)
Sydney Sixers Women – 88/10 (18 overs)
Result – Brisbane Heat Women won by 66 runs
