The women's Big Bash League 2022 has come down to the final four teams. It will be Brisbane Heat and Hobart Hurricanes locking horns in the Eliminator for the rights to face Adelaide Strikers in the Challenger. The two teams will meet at Karen Rolton Oval in Adelaide on Wednesday, November 23rd.
Brisbane Heat just missed out on a second place by a narrow net run-rate margin and will now have to win two matches to reach the final instead of just one. They finished with 17 points, having won eight matches and lost five, with a net run-rate of 0.276 compared to 0.390 of Adelaide Strikers.
Brisbane Heat's final group match against Melbourne Stars ended in a no result due to rain. They had given a target 105 on the back of Danni Wyatt's 52 off 24 but were in a losing position, having conceded 49 in 3.5 before rain saved them. Earlier, they had lost to the table-toppers Sydney Sixers by five wickets.
Hobart Hurricanes finished fourth in the group stage with 15 points, courtesy of seven wins and a no-result while they lost six games. They are coming into this game on the back of two successive defeats at the hands of Adelaide Strikers and Sydney Sixers - both by eight wickets.
Against the Sixers, they posted 156 batting first on the back of Mignon du Preez's 38 off 29 and Heather Graham's 23-ball 30. Defending the target, the bowlers could not make much impact as the Sixers top four eased past the target.
Brisbane Heat have a strong batting line-up comprising the opening duo of Danielle Wyatt and Georgia Voll, followed by Grace Harris, Amelia Kerr, Laura Harris and Jess Jonassen. The top four has scored over 200 runs each while Laura Harris adds crucial firepower, striking at 185 this season. In the bowling department, Jonassen, Amelia Kerr and Nicola Hancock have done an outstanding job, picking 61 wickets between them. Jess Kerr and Charlie Knott have been economical as well.
Hobart Hurricanes have relied heavily on Mignon du Preez and Heather Graham in the batting department. Du Preez has been terrific in the second half of the season. Lizelle Lee and Ellyse Villani have also made key contributions. However, apart from these four, the Hurricanes don't have much batting left. Molly Strano has led the bowling attack exceptionally well while along with Maisy Gibson has also done a good job. Gibson missed the last game but should return for this clash. All-rounders Graham and Nicola Carey could also play a key role.
Amelia Kerr has made a huge impact for Brisbane Heat in the WBBL 2022. Kerr's ability to be consistently good with both bat and ball has been on display this season. The New Zealand star has smashed 243 runs in 14 matches at an average of 27 while striking at 117, with the highest score of 41. With the ball, she has picked 19 wickets at a superb economy rate of 6.77, including best figures of 3 for 26.
Mignon du Preez has picked up form just at the right time for the Hurricanes. In the last five games, the South African batter has only failed once and has scored two fifties and two thirties. In the overall season, du Preez has made 366 runs across 13 innings at an average of 33 while striking at 124, including three fifties.
