Heat Seek Finals Push In Mackay

08 January 2018

The Brisbane Heat will be looking to continue their push towards the Rebel Women's Big Bash League finals when hosting the Melbourne Stars over two nights in Mackay.

Having started the season precariously with one win from their opening four games, the Heat have stormed into finals contention after going on a four-match winning run. 

Brisbane now head to Mackay where they will face the Melbourne Stars on Friday and Saturday in two games under-lights at Harrup Park. 

This is the first time an official BBL or WBBL game has been played in regional Queensland, and signifies Brisbane Heat's commitments to engage fans across the state.

It will also be the first time the Heat have played a game in their home states under-lights, with a big home crowd and exciting atmosphere expected at Harrup Park. 

Mackay fans will be treated to T20 action of the highest order, with several of the home team's stars in red-hot form, including Beth Mooney who is coming off scores of 81*, 86* and 61* from three of her last four innings. 

The WBBL ladder is currently at a logjam, with the Heat sitting in third position at the time of writing with five wins from eight games, however they have played one more game than the trailing Adelaide Strikers and Perth Scorchers. 

Entry to both games in Mackay is free, with play to begin at 6:30pm.
