The 16th game of the Women’s Big Bash League 2023 will be played between Adelaide Strikers vs Brisbane Heat on October 29 at the Karen Rolton Oval in Adelaide. The Adelaide Strikers have fluctuated in form throughout the competition thus far. Rain forced the match to be shortened to eight overs each side, meaning they would lose by seven wickets for the second time in their previous matchup against the Hobart Hurricanes.
A target of 75 runs was set by Katie Mack and Laura Wolvaardt, who scored 32 and 35 runs, respectively. But in the seventh over, the Hurricanes managed to knock down the goal despite losing three wickets. Brisbane Heat have won all four of their games, keeping a perfect record. In their last game, a 13-run victory over the Melbourne Stars, they played with great dominance.
The first batters set the tone, and they posted a target of 150 runs thanks to contributions from Georgia Voll (unbeaten 48) and Charli Knott (quick knock of 31(14). In retaliation, Knott once more demonstrated her bowling ability, taking two wickets with the support of captain Jess Jonassen and Sarah Glenn. With another wicket contributed by Nicola Hancock, they won the event for the fourth time in a row.
