Brisbane Heat have coasted to a nine-wicket win more than the Sydney Sixers, although the Hobart Hurricanes also effortlessly accounted for Adelaide Strikers on a busy day in the Women’s Big Bash League.
The Heat have been set a target of 115 for victory by the Sixers following Grace Harris took three for 22 in her four overs to take her wicket tally to nine from five games.
She then made a massive contribution with the bat, putting on 91 runs with opening partner Beth Mooney, who scored 50 off 54 balls, but Harris was named player of the game soon after scoring 43 off 33.
The 22-year-old has scored 227 runs off just 119 balls in the tournament thus far and scored the tournament’s very first century when she notched 103 off 55 deliveries in the Heat’s win over the Sixers on Saturday.
Elsewhere, it was a stroll in the park for the Hurricanes in Launceston as they trounced the Strikers after getting set 84 for victory.
No Adelaide batter scored a lot more than 15 runs as the Strikers were all out inside 19 overs just before the Hurricanes, led by openers Erin Burns (29 not out) and Heather Knight (25), eased to 84 in 16.two overs.
