REBEL WBBL|03

Heat Set For Stars In Mackay

11 January 2018

The Brisbane Heat have named an unchanged squad as they continue their surge towards the Rebel Women's Big Bash League finals in an historic double-header in Mackay.

The in-form Brisbane team will face the Melbourne Stars on Friday and Saturday under lights at Harrup Park, the first time a regular season BBL or WBBL game has been played in regional Queensland.

The Heat are coming off four strong wins over the Hobart Hurricanes and Adelaide Strikers and are currently sitting in fourth position on a congested WBBL |03 ladder, on the same points as the two teams above them.

Heat openers Beth Mooney and captain Kirby Short will be hoping to continue their strong recent form, after some towering performances in Tasmania and South Australia.

It will be the first time the Heat have played a game in their home state under lights, with a big crowd expected at Harrup Park as the Heat continues its commitment to engage fans across the state.

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