Women Big Bash Finals 2022
Women Big Bash Finals 2022: Following an exciting final day of the regular season, North Sydney Oval and Karen Rolton Oval have been confirmed as the locations for this year’s WBBL 2022 season 08 finals.
WBBL 2022 Progress
After Hobart Hurricanes’ defeat by Adelaide Strikers on Friday night, Sydney Sixers secured first place before they ever took the field for Sydney Smash.
The Sixers, who earned themselves a week off to relax and get ready for a shot at their third WBBL championship, advance straight to the final and host it at North Sydney Oval on November 26.
But until Thursday’s Challenger final, which puts the second-ranked Adelaide Strikers against the victor of Wednesday’s Eliminator between Brisbane Heat and Hobart Hurricanes, they won’t know their opponent in the championship.
WBBL 2022 Playoff Details
The Hurricanes, Strikers, Heat, and Scorchers were all vying for the final three positions heading into Sunday’s games.
After placing second and securing their spot with a win over Sydney Thunder on Sunday night, The Strikers earned the right to host The Challenger in Adelaide.
Due to the one-day gap between matches, The Eliminator between the Heat and Hurricanes will also be staged at Karen Rolton Oval as part of the WBBL|08 Finals structure.
WBBL 2022: So Far
The Heat were forced to split points with the Stars on Sunday afternoon after their game in rural Victoria had to be abandoned due to an electrical storm, which caused them to finish third in the standings.
Despite having a chance to move up to second place, the Hurricanes were forced to settle for fourth after Sunday’s eight-wicket loss to the Sixers.
The unfortunate team that failed to make the top four was Perth Scorchers, who entered Sunday needing to defeat Melbourne Renegades to save their season but lost in a game that was cut short by rain at Moe’s Ted Summerton Reserve.
Five games have been cancelled due to rain so far this season, and The Final will be made up on Sunday, November 27, starting at 5:20 p.m. AEDT.
“A highlight of this amazing WBBL season has been our return to each team’s local market across the nation. Fans have enjoyed excellent cricket on the field and a wonderful time off the field “General Manager of Cricket Australia’s Big Bash Leagues, Alistair Dobson, stated
