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.

A pair of half-centuries by skipper Meg Lanning have led the Melbourne Stars to dual victories over Brisbane on the inaugural day of Women’s Big Bash League action.

The Stars and Heat played back to back games at St Kilda’s Junction Oval and opener Lanning was named player of the match in each as she finished with a combined tally of 165 runs off 114 deliveries.

The national captain scored 75 not out off 56 in the second match of the day as the Stars battled to four for 147 off their 20 overs.

Jess Jonassen scored 52 but, for the second time in the day, Brisbane failed to match the hosts, falling ten runs short.

It was a equivalent story in the 1st match as Lanning belted 90 off 58 balls to set up victory for the Stars.

Englishwoman Nat Sciver (33 off 25) was the only other batter to get out of single figures as they reached 7 for 156.

The Heat in no way got close in their chase as wickets fell with startling regularity.

Opener Grace Harris (42 off 21) helped the Heat recover soon after the loss of opening partner Beth Mooney (2) on the fourth ball of the innings.

Harris and 1st drop Jonassen’s second-wicket partnership was worth 54 runs but the latter contributed just six of them before falling to the stingy Alana King (1 for 14 off four overs).

Batting at number six, tennis convert Ash Barty went about attempting to rebuild the innings when she came out to the middle in the 12th more than – hammering 39 off just 27 deliveries, which includes a six, in her very first outing – but it was not adequate.

The final 5 batters contributed just 16 runs and Barty was the last woman out, bowled by Sciver for her second wicket of the innings.

Kristen Beams and Morna Nielsen completed with 3 wickets apiece.
