Although it has been a good campaign for Brisbane Heat Women so far, they come into this match after back to back defeats against Melbourne Renegades (2 runs) and Melbourne Stars (15 runs). Heat need to turn their form around or their position in fourth place could be under threat.
Brisbane Heat Women’s batters need to turn their starts into big scores in this game after we saw both Georgia Redmayne and Amelia Kerr get out after hitting scores over 30 in the top three against Melbourne Stars Women. Mignon du Preez’s experience could be crucial in the middle order if the top order fails in this match.
Of the seven bowlers used against Melbourne Stars Women, only Amelia Kerr (2/21) and Nicola Hancock (2/36) picked up wickets. It could be that Courtney Grace Sippel is rested for this game as she has gone wicketless in four of her last five and conceded 26 runs from 2 overs on Sunday.
Brisbane Heat Women are in poor form with only two wins from their last six matches in the WBBL.

After a poor start to the tournament, Sydney Sixers Women looked to have turned their season around with a winning run of games but they were beaten by Adelaide Strikers Women on Saturday for their second successive defeat. They must win this match to give themselves a chance of reaching the knockout stage.
More batters need to contribute for Sydney Sixers Women as eight of their batters made single figure scores in the last game. Captain Ellyse Perry has been very consistent at the top of the order all competition and she arrives in Brisbane after hitting 37 against Adelaide Strikers Women.
Lauren Cheatle has established herself as one of the most reliable wicket takers in the WBBL and the left-arm fast medium bowler picked up the crucial dismissal of Laura Wolvaardt in the last match. Ellyse Perry has taken at least one wicket in each of her last two games.
Sydney Sixers Women come into this match hoping to avoid their third successive defeat in the tournament.

This game is really critical to seeing who finishes in the top four as a win for Brisbane Heat Women will confirm their place in the knockout stage whereas a win for Sydney Sixers Women will make the table extremely interesting. However, Sydney Sixers Women have struggled over recent games and Brisbane Heat Women have plenty of experienced players in their squad. We are predicting a victory for Brisbane Heat Women.
