Brisbane Heat defeated Hobart Hurricanes to make their way into the Challenger of the ongoing Women’s Big Bash League 2022 on Wednesday, November 23. Heat will face Adelaide Strikers in the penultimate game of the tournament and the contest will take place at the Karen Rolton Oval in Adelaide, which is the home ground of the Strikers.
In their last match before the knockout stage, Strikers defeated Sydney Thunder to seal themselves a place in the Challenger. Since Sydney Sixers have already found themselves a finale spot, Adelaide Strikers and Brisbane Heat will now lock horns with an aim to play the summit clash at the North Sydney Oval on November 26.
It will be a task for Heat because even though they are coming off a magnificent 44-run victory over Hobart Hurricanes, the players do not have much time to rest before their upcoming fixture. The fatigue factor will play a role for Heat, which will not be the case for Strikers who have been preparing for the past three days.
