Last night's heartbreaking loss to the Melbourne Renegades has taken our top two destiny out of our hands. Here's what needs to happen for the Heat to host a semi-final next week.

Heading into today's KFC Big Bash League matches, the Heat sit on top of the ladder, however both the Melbourne Stars and Perth Scorchers could leapfrog us should they win their respective matches. 

Pending today's results, we can still finish first, second or third, while seven of the eight BBL clubs have hopes of playing finals. 



Perth Scorchers vs Hobart Hurricanes - Blundstone Arena, 3:20pm start (QLD time). 
The Scorchers will go level with the Heat on 10 points should they beat Hobart today, and will go above us should they win by 37+ runs or within 15.3 overs. If the Scorchers lose, then we are guaranteed a top two finish. 

Melbourne Stars vs Sydney Sixers - The MCG, 6:25pm start (QLD time). 
The Stars will secure top spot if they beat the Sixers, while they could finish out of the four if they suffer a massive loss. If the Stars lose then the Heat should finish in the top two and host a semi-final.

The top two sides will host semi-finals on Tuesday the 24th and Wednesday the 25th of January. WBBL semi-finals will also be played as double-headers at both final venues.
