Wins for Thunder, Sixers and Heat in latest round of rebel WBBL|05 matches
There were wins for Sydney Thunder against Hobart Hurricanes, Sydney Sixers against Melbourne Stars and Brisbane Heat against Adelaide Strikers in latest round of rebel WBBL|05 matches today.
Brisbane Heat beat Adelaide Strikers by 9 wickets
The Adelaide Strikers have suffered their second loss of the rebel WBBL|05 season, losing by nine wickets against the Brisbane Heat.
In a vast contrast to Saturday night's winning performance, the Strikers were unable to take wickets and stem the flow of runs, after setting a modest total of 8/141.
Strikers captain Suzie Bates won the bat flip and elected to bat first, with opener Sophie Devine compiling a classy 65 from 53 balls, before being run out on the final delivery.
Devine was largely supported by Bates (27) and Amanda-Jade Wellington, who made a quick-fire 23 from 15 balls.
Once again, it was Beth Mooney who made the bulk of the runs for the Heat, posting an unbeaten 77 from 51 balls, getting her side to 1/142 in the 18th over.
Wellington was the lone wicket-taker for the Strikers, thanks to a catch in the deep from Devine to dismiss Grace Harris for 30.
With four wins and two losses, the Strikers have dropped to second place on the ladder, while the Sydney Thunder have pushed ahead into top spot.
The team will now return home to take on the Perth Scorchers and the Melbourne Stars at Karen Rolton Oval on 9 and 10 November from 1:40pm both days. Matches can be watched live on 7 and Fox Cricket.
