Adelaide Strikers women (AS-W) will take on Brisbane Heat women (BH-W) in match 14 of Women’s Big Bash League 2021 at Invermay Park in Launceston on Sunday, October 24.
The Strikers have been the most dominant team in the ongoing edition of the WBBL and are the only unbeaten team in the competition. The Tahlia McGrath's side won their initial two games, but rain forced the third match against Hobart Hurricanes to be abandoned. AS-W currently sit atop the Women’s Big Bash League 2021 standings with five points from three games.
On the other hand, the Brisbane Heat made a heartbreaking start to their WBBL 2021 campaign after losing to Perth Scorchers in the Super Over. The Brisbane outfit, led by Australia cricket team all-rounder Jess Jonassen, thrashed the Scorchers by 59 runs in their next match, while their clash against the Melbourne Stars was called off due to rain. Jonassen's Heat is currently placed third in the standings with three points from as many matches.
AS-W vs BH-W Dream11 prediction
The Brisbane Heat dominate the head-to-head record against Adelaide Strikers in the Women’s Big Bash League, winning nine of 13 matches between the teams. Furthermore, BH-W have won three of their last five matches against AS-W in the women’s T20 League. However, the in-form Strikers are a formidable unit and will start as favourites against the Heat in their upcoming encounter on Sunday.
