BH-W vs MS-W T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, WBBL 2022
Brisbane Heat Women will take on Melbourne Stars Women at the Great Barrier Reef Arena, Mackay. Match 4 of the 2022 WBBL will get underway at 19:05 local time on Saturday, October 15th.
Brisbane Heat Women
After losing their opening game of the tournament by four wickets to Sydney Sixers on Thursday, Brisbane Heat will be keen to register their first win in this match. They came very close to beating the Sixers but conceded a six from the 19.5th ball to lose.
Keeper-batter Georgia Redmayne top scored with 49 runs from 39 balls in Mackay on Thursday. She hit six fours and shared a partnership of 60 runs for the second wicket with number three batter Georgia Voll. 19 year old Charli Knott hit 21 not out from nine balls.
Off-spinner Georgia Voll was given the final over of the match to bowl after not bowling previously in the fixture. She took a wicket from the 19.4th ball but could not defend eight runs from the final six balls. Jess Kerr and Jess Jonassen both took two wickets.
Heat lost three of their last four matches in the 2021 WBBL and have now taken that run to four defeats from five.
Melbourne Stars Women
The Stars open their campaign in this match after finishing in fifth place last year and missing out on the playoffs by one place and three points. They have got a strong group of batters but there are doubts about whether their bowling attack will be good enough to get them into the top four.
With England’s Lauren Winfield-Hill arriving in Australia after a strong English summer with the bat, we expect her to continue her strong form in this tournament. Jemimah Rodrigues will miss this game due to the 2022 Women’s Asia Cup Final.
Ireland’s Kim Garth was Melbourne Stars’ top wicket taker last year with 15 dismissals at an average of 18.73 and she is expected to be a threat with the ball again. 21 year old pace bowler Annabel Sutherland took 14 wickets in the 2021 WBBL and should enjoy bowling in Mackay.
The Stars won their last game of the last campaign but did not win any of their previous four.
BH-W vs MS-W Pitch Report
The match will be played at the Great Barrier Reef Arena, Mackay. There is plenty of assistance for the quick and medium pace bowlers on this pitch. We expect a par score to be around 140.
