Preview

Brisbane Heat women’s team will play Sydney Thunder on Saturday at Drummoyne Oval, Sydney. Sydney thunders are yet to gain momentum after their continuous loss, the recent one being the loss against Sydney sixers. Whereas the other side Brisbane heat is on a winning streak with very economic performances in the matches they have played. In the last encounter between these two Sydney thunder defeated Brisbane heat, hence the Thunders will look to bounce back strong.

Sydney Thunder is on number 5 in the points table with 9 points in their account while winning 4 matches out of 9 they have played, This win against heat can reshuffle the whole points table as they may reach the no.2 spot, so thunders won’t leave any chance to conquer in this encounter.

Brisbane Heat, the team who has proved match by match that they are title defenders, they are placed on no.2 with 10 points in hand while playing 8 matches and winning 5 out of them. The team is in good shape with all the squad members performing consistently. They will look forward to defeating their opponents in the next encounter so as to increase their qualifications probability.
