Adelaide Strikers Hope to Be Third Time Lucky as Sydney Sixers Look To Make It Triple

The two-time former champions Sydney Sixers and last year's runners-up Adelaide Strikers are set to lock horns in the all-important final of the women's Big Bash League 2022. The two teams will meet at North Sydney Oval on Saturday, November 26th. 

Sydney Sixers were by far the best side in the group stage of this season. The Ellyse Perry-led side finished with 11 wins and lost only two games. They're on a five-match winning streak and would be looking to claim their third WBBL title. 

In their final group match, the Sixers defeated Hobart Hurricanes by eight wickets. Kate Peterson picked three wickets while Perry and Sophie Ecclestone bagged two each to bowl out the opponents for 156. Perry then made 56* off 39 with Ashleigh Gardner smashing 45* off 29 to take the side home. 

Adelaide Strikers have lost two finals and would want to break the curse on the third attempt. They finished second on the table with eight wins and had to go through the Challenger to reach the final. In the Challenger, Tahlia McGrath's women defeated Brisbane Heat by six wickets at Adelaide. 

Megan Schutt starred with the ball, picking 3 for 26 while Deandra Dottin also bagged 2 for 29 to restrict the Heat to 154/8. Chasing the target, they lost two early wickets before Dottin provided a boost with a 21-ball 39. Laura Wolvaardt scored 47 off 45 before Bridget Patterson smashed 45* off 26 to book the spot in the final. 

Both teams have had one victory each in their battles this season. It's all to play for when they meet on Saturday.
