When and where:
Sydney Sixers Women will take on Brisbane Heat Women in the final of WBBL, on (January 26) at Drummoyne Oval, Sydney, Australia.
The defending champions Sydney Sixers are once again on the verge of making history as they are looking to win yet another WBBL title. The team has been on top of the points table all season long and had to go the hard way to get into the finals. They are still one of the most balanced sides in competition with their skipper Ellyse Perry putting on dominant displays in every single game. She is the top-scorer of the tournament and will be looking to lead the side to write yet another chapter in their glorious history.
On the other hand, Brisbane Heat Women are making their appearance in the finals of WBBL. They were third in the points table and had to rely on their superior bowling attack. The team lacks clear firepower while batting but they more than makeup for it by suffocating the opposition to a measly total. However, the nerves that come with playing a final game of a tournament for the first time are unparalleled. If the players don’t let the occasion get to them, it is expected to be an extremely competitive contest.
The match will begin at 4:40 AM IST.
