  • There is a balanced Head-to-Head record between these two teams as both Sydney Thunder and Brisbane Heat have won on five occasions.
  • Sydney Thunder rode on the back of an unbeaten 97-run partnership between 16-year-old Phoebe Litchfield and Alex Blackwell to register a comfortable 7-wicket victory against Brisbane Heat earlier in the season.
  • However, Thunder have lost their last three matches while Heat have won three of their last 4 fixtures.

Match Preview

It has been a tale of completely contrasting fortunes for the two competing two teams, Sydney Thunder and Brisbane Heat but when they take on each other on Saturday, the former would badly need a victory to ensure that their campaign doesn’t sink at this stage itself. The importance of this match can’t be highlighted more than that as the Thunder are coming into this fixture with a three-match losing streak. Those losses have resulted in Thunder only securing 9 points after as many matches.

In their most recent fixture, rivals Sydney Sixers won comfortably by a 40-run margin. After Ellyse Perry's 81 helped Sixers post 152 on the board and Thunder was never in the game after that. Sixers bowled superbly to win by 40 runs. On the other hand, Brisbane Heat is coming into this game after pounding Melbourne Stars by 9 wickets. Unsurprisingly Beth Mooney was at the helm of affairs with her contributing 70 runs out of Heat's 166-run chase but the biggest positive for them would have been Maddy Green's contribution. Green scored a fifty and that would boost Heat's batting line-up because they were heavily dependent on Beth Mooney until the match against Melbourne Stars.

Teams Preview

Sydney Thunder Women

After being carried by the like of Alex Blackwell, Rachel Priest and Phoebe Litchfield, Thunder's batting has been a huge let down in the last few matches. The fact that only Tahlia Wilson and Nida Dar have scored the 40s should be a huge worry for the Thunder team management.

At the same time, the most disappointing player would have to be the captain Rachel Haynes herself. While she has been a rock in the middle-order for the Southern Stars, Sydney Thunder hasn’t been rewarded with some big scores from her bat. However, Thunder received a boost in the previous game against Sydney Sixers as young sensation Phoebe Litchfield returned to the team after missing a few matches due to Year 10 exams. With respect to the bowling department, Thunder remains solid as ever. Only Rene Farell had an off-day against Sydney Sixers. Given the fact that she has had a very good tournament, one bad game can’t be scrutinized too much.

Sydney Thunder Women Actual Playing XI:

Alex Blackwell, Phoebe Litchfield, Shabnim Ismail, Hannah Darlington, Lisa Griffith, Rene Farrell, Nida Dar, Tahlia Wilson, Rachel Priest, Sam Bates, Rachael Haynes

Sydney Thunder Women Predicted Playing XI

Rachel Priest (WK), Rachel Haynes (C), Tahlia Wilson, Alex Blackwell, Phoebe Litchfield, Nida Far, Hannah Darlington, Rene Farell, Lisa Griffith, Shabnim Ismail, Samantha Bates.

Brisbane Heat Women

Everyone is aware that superstar Ellyse Perry has had a stunning WBBL season with the bat but someone has even been better. That someone is none other than Aussie international Beth Mooney. She has been unbelievable with her run-scoring to notch up 441 runs in 8 matches.

Actually, one could easily say that Brisbane Heat is dangerously dependent on a few individuals and that opinion wouldn’t be wrong because it’s always been Beth Mooney scoring and Heat's bowling attack using her consistency to do well. However, as mentioned before, the likes of Maddy Green, Jess Jonassen and Delissa Kimmince are slowing coming back to their best and this would make Brisbane Heat and Beth Mooney an even more dangerous combination.

After starting the season slowly, Kimmince has hit the right notes in the last few games and even started with three wickets against Melbourne Stars in the last game. All in all, Heat is coming back to the kind of form that helped them lift the title last year.

Brisbane Heat Women Actual Playing XI:

Grace Harris, Beth Mooney, Maddy Green, Kirby Short, Jess Jonassen, Mikayla Hinkley, Amelia Kerr, Sammy Jo Johnson, Delissa Kimmince, Georgia Prestwidge, Laura Harris

Pitch And Weather Conditions

In the first match of the season at the Drummoyne Oval, Sydney Thunder and Sydney Sixers were welcomed with a pitch that had a fair bit of green tinge to it. This ensured that pacers were in the game all the time. It would be interesting if a similar pitch is on offer on Saturday too. The pitch could also be spiced up with some rain forecasted for the match-day. A strong southerly breeze might also make it tricky for the batters.

Venue Details

The Drummoyne Oval is one of the many multi-sport grounds in the beautiful city of Sydney. The ground is usually used for cricket and Australian football with the Sydney Sixers women's team using the venue as their home ground since 2016. With light towers being installed in 2013 as part of a massive development process, the Drummoyne Oval is a beautiful venue for any sporting action.

Toss Prediction

With the match set to be played under lights, there isn’t going to be a massive difference between batting first or chasing. However, chasing will be our preferred option as the pitch might become slightly easier to bat on in the second inning.

Winning Prediction

We are going with a brave prediction that Sydney Thunder will do the unexpected and defeat Brisbane Heat in this crucial encounter. The key to Thunder's success is an explicit one- Remove Beth Mooney early and put pressure on the rest of the Brisbane Heat batting line-up.
