The all-rounders of these two teams have been in phenomenal form with both the bat and the ball throughout the tournament.

Match Details:

The 2nd Semi-Final of the Women’s Big Bash League (WBBL) 2020 will be played between the Brisbane Heat Women and the Sydney Thunder Women at the North Sydney Oval.

The match is scheduled to start at 07:10 PM Local Time (01:40 PM IST) (08:10 AM GMT) and it will be streamed live on Sony Six and Sony Six HD.

Preview:

Having fought their way to be one of the top 4 sides in the points table, at the end of the league stages, the Brisbane Heat Women are all set to face the Sydney Thunder Women in the second semi-final. This match would take the winner into the finals, where they will have a shot at winning the tournament. Both these teams did well in the league stage, with one inching ahead of the other by a small margin.

The Brisbane Heat Women were at the second spot, while the Sydney Thunder Women were at the third position in the table. This difference came through because of the one extra win that the Brisbane Heat Women had under their belt when compared to their opponents.

This would give the Brisbane Heat Women a small higher ground over their opponents. But, since these teams won their matches coming into this match by considerable margins, the advantage would be reduced to a really small margin. So, it would be interesting to see which team emerges out on top in this match, as it promises to be a closely contested game of cricket.
