Heat Set For Hurricanes

30 October 2020

The WBBL Brisbane Heat will take an unchanged squad into tomorrow’s rebel Women’s Big Bash League clash with Hobart Hurricanes at the Sydney Showgrounds.

After winning their opening match and having their second game washed out last weekend, the Heat have stuck with the same squad, with South African recruit Nadine de Klerk in line to make her WBBL debut if selected to start tomorrow.

Teenage allrounder Georgia Voll would also make her debut for the two-time champions if chosen to start.



The Heat face a busy weekend, with tomorrow’s match followed on Sunday morning with the clash against the Sydney Thunder at the same venue.

Heat coach Ashley Noffke said the squad had settled well into the bio-secure ‘Village’ where they will spend the duration of the tournament.

“Everyone has been able to find some space for themselves, and we consciously made yesterday a day-off from any commitments to keep the squad feeling fresh,’’ he said.

“But we are working together well as a group and looking forward to getting back out and playing again,” he said.

The WBBL Heat players will wear teal ribbons this weekend to signal their support for charity partners Ovarian Cancer Australia.

Ovarian cancer is the deadliest female cancer in Australia with a low 46% survival rate.  The Brisbane Heat club have been proud partners with Ovarian Cancer Australia since 2014.

This November, the Heat are encouraging supporters to get behind the cause by signing up for Ovarian Cancer Australia's new fitness challenge Workout for Women.
