Hobart Hurricanes finally managed to end their losing streak of five matches with a five-wicket win over the Brisbane Heat on Sunday who they will take on once again in the reverse fixture. This was only the 2nd win for Hurricanes in nine matches this season and their first after Hayley Matthews’ exit due to an injury. The impressive fact about this win is that it came without contributions from their key players Smriti Mandhana and Heather Knight. This was also the only the second time where Hobart were chasing a team which can be a factor.

The Hurricanes’ bowling came to the party to restrict the Brisbane side for just 129 and chased it down with ten balls to spare. This win might be a little late for the Hurricanes in terms of chances of finishing in the top four. This defeat affected the good spree that Brisbane Heat were enjoying having won four of their five matches before this game. Both the teams have the same squads for both the matches and they could even go unchanged on Monday.
