WBBL Heat Eye Finals

26 November 2019

The WBBL Brisbane Heat will continue their focus on a rebel Women’s Big Bash League finals berth when they host the Melbourne Renegades at Allan Border Field tomorrow.

The table-topping Heat have kept the same squad that defeated the Hobart Hurricanes last week, their seventh win in a row.
 
Allrounder Charli Knott retains her spot in the squad for Brisbane’s second last regular season game and last home match.
 
The Heat take on the Melbourne Stars at Junction Oval on Sunday in the last game before the Finals series that will be played the following weekend (December 7-8) at the home of the highest placed team.
 
Heat contracted teenagers Knott, Lilly Mills and Courtney Sippel all played on the weekend in Canberra in the exhibition youth T20 series between the Lanning XI and the Perry XI.
 
Knott, the only one of the trio yet to make her WBBL debut, performed solidly for the Lanning XI which won all three games.
 
Heat coach Ashley Noffke said he was pleased with the performances of the young trio, as well as other promising young Queensland players who had been invited.
 
“It’s been great for those three to get some more T20 playing time – Knotty batted well, Lilly got the captain which was good for her, and Courtney was able to get some valuable bowling in,’’ he said.
 
“It was also very pleasing to see players like Sianna Ginger from Townsville and Caitlin Mair do well when given the opportunity,’’ he said.

Ginger, 14, hit scores of 61 and 48 not out in two of her three innings for the Lanning XI.
 
Tomorrow’s match starts at 1.10pm. Tickets available at the gate or from Ticketek.
