The 23rd match of the Women's Big Bash League 2019 will be played between Brisbane Heat and Adelaide Strikers at the Harrup Park in Mackay.

Brisbane Heat and Adelaide Strikers competed at the same venue yesterday and will be up against each other again. Adelaide Strikers won that game by 8 wickets.

Batting first, Brisbane Heat bundled out for 139 from 19 overs despite a 49-ball 73 from Beth Mooney and a 21-ball 20 from opener Grace Haris. The remaining players could not add to the total and kept walking back to the pavilion one after the other.

This was due to the accurate bowling from Adelaide Strikers bowlers as each of Sophie Devine, Tahlia McGrath, Amanda Wellington, Sarah Coyte and Megan Schutt picked up two wickets each. This essentially is the sign of a well-rounded bowling attack such that one does not snaffle all the wickets and they are shared equally.

Suzie Bates and Bridget Patterson then came out firing on all cylinders, racking up half-centuries and taking the Adelaide Strikers to an easy win with none of the Heat bowlers actually creating any impact.

After the match, Brisbane Heat have dropped to the fifth spot in the Women's Big Bash League 2019 points table with two wins and three losses from 5 matches. They have four points and a net run rate of +0.607.

Adelaide Strikers remain comfortably perched at the top of the leaderboard with 4 wins and one loss from 5 matches. The team has 8 points and a net run rate of +0.822.

Let's have a look at the probable playing XIs of both teams:

Brisbane Heat- Beth Mooney, Kirby Short, Grace Harris, Jess Jonassen, Maddy Green, Mikayla Hinkley, Laura Harris, Amelia Kerr, Delissa Kimmince, Sammy-Jo Johnson, Georgia Prestwidge

Adelaide Strikers- Sophie Devine, Suzie Bates, Tahlia McGrath, Bridget Patterson, Stafanie Taylor, Katie Mack, Tegan McPharlin, Amanda Wellington, Sarah Coyte, Alex Price, Megan Schutt
