Live Scores and Stats - WBBL 2021 - Perth Scorchers vs Brisbane Heat - Match 4
Perth Scorchers finished as Semi-finalists in the last season of Women's Big Bash League. The team has Shelley Nitschke as their head coach.
Perth Scorchers can avail the services of Marizanne Kapp (Sixers), Chamari Athapaththu, Alana King (Stars), Lisa Griffith (Sixers), Lilly Mills (Heat), Ashley Day, Amy Edgar this season but will miss Jemma Barsby (Strikers), Amy Jones, Sarah Glenn, Emma King (retired), Nicole Bolton (Sixers), Megan Banting, Georgia Wyllie.
Without England wicketkeeper batter Amy Jones and leg spinner Sarah Glenn, Scorchers will feel a bit weakened. However, they are oozing with quality at the top of the order.
Sophie Devine (NZ), Beth Mooney, Chamari Athapathu (SL) and Marizanne Kapp coming one after another - now that's some batting order.
Brisbane Heat finished as Semi-finalists in the last season of Women's Big Bash League. The team has Ashley Noffke as their head coach.
Anneke Bosch, Ellie Johnston, Poonam Yadav, Zoe Cooke have replaced Delissa Kimmince (retired), Amelia Kerr, Maddy Green, Lilly Mills (Scorchers) in the Brisbane Heat squad.
Brisbane Heat have a slightly weak squad compared to the rest of teams. The retirement of Delissa Kimmince and the absence of New Zealand star Amelia Kerr due to mental health issues has depleted them.
The team will look towards captain Jess Jonassen, Indian leg spinner Poonam Yadav, Grace Harris and Georgia Redmayne to make an impact.
