Match Highlights HH-w vs AS-w 

HH-w vs AS-w: Women’s Big Bash League Hobart Hurricanes Women vs Adelaide Strikers Women

HH-w vs AS-w Match Highlights : After making excellent use of the ball in both games against the Adelaide Strikers in the WBBL, the Hobart Hurricanes team made it two victories against the Strikers. Hobart Hurricanes won the match by 23 runs.

With a 23-run victory over a scurrying Adelaide Strikers, Heather Graham’s first WBBL half-century enabled Hobart Hurricanes to move into the top four of the standings. The outcome has important implications for this year’s competition as it was the Hurricanes’ first victory over the Strikers since the first few weeks of the WBBL’s maiden season seven years ago.

HH-w vs AS-w: Graham’s Fifty

Graham’s even 50 helped Hobart reach 4 for 152, and Nicola Carey, with 2 for 24, stopped the Strikers at 4 for 129 to become the Hurricanes’ all-time leading wicket-taker.

The Hurricanes, who haven’t participated in finals since 2016–17, are now fourth with a game in hand over most of the clubs ahead of them after passing the defending champions Perth.

With four games remaining, Strikers are still in front of them in third place, but with a victory on Friday at Karen Rolton Oval, they might have passed Brisbane Heat and Sydney Sixers into first place.

HH-w vs AS-w: Highlight of the Match

Due to a hamstring ailment, Brisbane Heat’s top run scorer in the league, Georgia Redmayne, will miss Saturday’s game against the Hurricanes. The game was basically over when Strano dashed in from the outside to stump Laura Wolvaardt for 45, leaving her in charge of the pursuit.

Redmayne improved her chances of receiving an Australian call-up by scoring 333 runs at a tournament-best 41.62, and the Heat coaching team is sure she will return before the finals in a little over a week.

What’s Next?

Adelaide Strikers Women will next play against Sydney Thunder on 13th November (Sunday). Hobart Hurricanes will face on 15th November (Tuesday).
