Speech report

The surface at Allan Border Field offers some movement for the fast bowlers, initially with a lot of bounce. But as the match progresses, the pitch settles down quite well, meaning that the captain who won the toss will tend to field first on that pitch.

Probable Playing XI:

Brisbane Heat:

Grace Harris, Georgia Redmayne (w), Danielle Wyatt, Georgia Wall, Amelia Kerr, Laura Harris, Charlie Knott, Jess Jonassen (w), Pooja Vastrakar, Nicola Hancock, Courtney Sippel

Adelaide Strikers:

Deandra Dottin, Katie Mack, Laura Woolworth, Talia McGrath (c), Bridget Patterson, Madeline Penna, Amanda Wellington, Tegan McFarlin (td), Gemma Barsby, Megan Schutt, Darcy Brown

Probable top performers

Probably the best shot: Georgia Redmayne

Brisbane opener Georgia Redmayne is among the purple spots and is the tournament’s top scorer with 216 runs in just five matches at an impressive average of 54. Her unbeaten 98 against the Melbourne Renegades is the highest score among the best in this year’s tournament.

Probably the best player: Amanda Wellington

Amanda Wellington starred for the Strikers in their previous match against the Melbourne Renegades. The young leg-spinner scalped five wickets conceding just eight runs in a brilliant spell of spin bowling. Her stunning form has meant she is one of the leading wicket-takers in this year’s edition with eight dismissals.
