Brisbane Heat women (BH-W) will take on Adelaide Strikers women (AS-W) in match 45 of Women’s Big Bash League 2021 at Harrup Park in Mackay on Sunday, November 14.
Under the leadership of Australia cricket team all-rounder Jess Jonassen, BH-W have been one of the most dominant sides in the ongoing edition of the WBBL. With seven wins, three defeats while one match was washed out, Brisbane Heat are currently placed second in the WBBL 2021 standings with 15 points from 11 matches.
On the other hand, Adelaide Strikers have been inconsistent in the Women’s Big Bash Bash League this season. The Tahlia McGrath-led side has registered five wins, four losses while one match was abandoned due to inclement weather. A win against the Heat would keep the Strikers in playoff contention, as they have 11 points from 10 matches.
BH-W vs AS-W Dream11 prediction
Brisbane Heat have dominated Adelaide Strikers in the Women’s Big Bash League, winning 10 of 14 matches played between these two teams. In addition, BH-W have won four of their last five matches against AS-W in WBBL. Jonassen's side also defeated the Strikers by five runs in their first encounter in the WBBL 2021, and they are strong favourites to do the double on Sunday.
BH-W vs AS-W Dream11 team tips for Women’s Big Bash League 2021

Brisbane Heat women captain Jess Jonassen is currently the leading wicket-taker in WBBL this season. The Australian left-arm orthodox bowler has bagged 17 wickets in 10 matches at an economy of 6.38. Jonassen is likely to add to her wickets' tally against the Strikers on Sunday.
