Brisbane Heat jump to the second spot after Rain spoils the final game

After an electrical storm abruptly ended Brisbane Heat’s crucial match against Melbourne Stars in Moe, they now have to wait in suspense to see whether they will host a WBBL final at Allan Border Field this week.

A 10-over-a-side match that had already been cut short by rain was forced to end with teams splitting the points after players have removed from the field 3.5 overs into the second inning.

The Stars were seven balls short of the five overs needed to form a match when play was called at 1-49, but they were ahead of the DLS par score.

The game was lowered to 10 overs per side as a result of the scattered rain in Moe, which caused a 90-minute start delay.

The English opener played her greatest WBBL 08 innings with the potential to host a home final on the line, hitting the rope seven times and clearing it twice.

Her contribution was crucial during an inning in which no other top-order Heat batter scored; instead, cheap outs were taken by Georgia Voll (6), Grace Harris (13), Laura Harris (7), and Ellie Johnston (2), before Amelia Kerr (10) and Jess Jonassen (11) helped Brisbane pass the 100-run threshold in the closing stages.

Current Standing

With 17 points remaining in the regular season, the Heat must wait to find out whether or not they will host The Challenger on Thursday based on the outcome of the game between the Adelaide Strikers and Sydney Thunder.
