The Brisbane Heat Women are all set to face the Sydney Thunder Women in the second semi-final after having fought their way to become one of the top 4 sides in the points table after the league stages. This game will send the winner to the finals, where they will have a chance to win the tournament. In the league stage, both of these teams did well one inch ahead of the other by a slight margin.
In 2nd spot were the Brisbane Heat Women, while the Sydney Thunder Women put third in the table. Compared to their rivals, this disparity was down to the one extra victory that the Brisbane Heat Women had under their belt.
This would give the Brisbane Heat Women a little more significant ground over their rivals. But because these teams won their matches by large margins going into this match, the advantage will be reduced to a minimal margin. So in this match, it will be fascinating to see which team comes out on top, as it promises to be a tight clash.
The weather condition in Sydney looks fine for an uninterrupted cricket match to play. It is predicted that the sky will be mainly sunny, with little possibility of rainfall and temperatures around 23 degrees Celsius.
It is known that the wicket at the North Sydney Oval is a batting paradise. In WBBL 2020, the last few games saw the batters dominate the bowling and score loads of runs.
It could be no different than the pitch for this all-important WBBL clash. It is supposed to be conducive to stroke-play, and both teams could experience some significant hits from fans from around the world.
It becomes reasonably straightforward to chase down totals under the night sky, and choosing to bowl first may be the tactic deployed by the captain who wins the toss.

On the other hand, the Brisbane Heat will rely heavily on their skippers Jess Jonassen and Laura Kimmince to bear the bulk of the burden and deliver a match-winning result.
