Cricket Betting Tips and Fantasy Cricket Match Predictions: WBBL 2020 - Perth Scorchers vs Brisbane Heat - Match 4
The 4th match of the Women’s Big Bash League 2020 will be played between Perth Scorchers and Brisbane Heat at the North Sydney Oval, Sydney in Australia.
Defending champions Brisbane Heat welcome Nichola Hancock, Nadine de Klerk, Georgia Redmayne and Georgia Voll this season. Sammy-Jo Johnson (Thunder), Beth Mooney (Scorchers) and Kirby Short (retired) have parted ways.
Jess Jonassen, who plundered 419 runs at 38.09 last year, will be their top batter.
The all-rounder also picked up 21 wickets in 2019. Delissa Kimmince will be another leading bowler for the side.
Perth Scorchers reached the semi-final last year but fell at the second-last hurdle. With some heavy weight signings like Sophie Devine (Strikers), Sarah Glenn and Beth Mooney (Brisbane Heat) this year, they would hope to go the distance.
They would miss Australia international and their key player Meg Lanning who has moved to Melbourne Stars. Sophie Devine and Amy Jones are expected to be their main performers with the bat.
With the ball, Heather Graham, who was their top wicket taker last year with 15 wickets from as many matches, will be crucial.
Let's have a look at the squads of both teams:
Brisbane Heat - Maddy Green (NZ), Nicola Hancock, Grace Harris, Laura Harris, Mikayla Hinkley, Jess Jonassen, Amelia Kerr (NZ), Delissa Kimmince, Nadine de Klerk (SA), Charli Knott, Lilly Mills, Georgia Prestwidge, Georgia Redmayne, Courtney Sippel, Georgia Voll
Perth Scorchers - Megan Banting, Jemma Barsby, Samantha Betts, Nicole Bolton, Mathilda Carmichael, Piepa Cleary, Sophie Devine (NZ), Sarah Glenn (Eng), Heather Graham, Amy Jones (Eng) Emma King, Beth Mooney, Taneale Peschel, Chloe Piparo, Georgia Wyllie
