Heat Extend Winning Streak

17 November 2019

The Brisbane Heat have jumped back to the top of the rebel Women’s Big Bash League ladder after claiming an eight wicket win over the Perth Scorchers today at Drummoyne Oval.

It was the Heat’s usual suspects who dominated in the win, the club’s fifth on the trot, with Jess Jonassen and Beth Mooney the chief contributors.

Jonassen claimed 4-23 with the ball and hit 32 not out with the bat to claim Player of the Match honours, while Mooney continued her rich vein of form with 60 not out off 44 balls.

Mooney’s season haul has now climbed to 523 runs at an average of 87, including six scores over 50 and four not outs, seeing her on top of the run-scorers list.

Jonassen meanwhile has found form of her own, with her haul of four wickets today her second for the weekend after taking 4-13 in the Heat’s win over the Sydney Thunder last night. Her season tally of 16 wickets is the most on any player in WBBL|05.

The Heat have moved to outright first on the WBBL table on 14 points, though they could be joined by the Sydney Sixers later today when they host the Melbourne Renegades at Drummoyne.

Brisbane will travel to Melbourne on Monday ahead of Wednesday morning’s game against the Renegades at the CitiPower centre before meeting the Hobart Hurricanes on Friday night at Blundstone Arena.

Heat fans will have one final chance to see their team live in action during this summer’s regular season when the club hosts the Renegades at Allan Border Field on Wednesday November 27. Tickets are available through Ticketek, with entry $10 for adults and FREE for kids.
