Brisbane Heat (18 Points On Table)
The defending champions are in an outstanding position with two remaining games and a very good chance to host the final for the first time. After six consecutive games outside Queensland, they return home to host the Renegades before returning to Melbourne to play against the stars. Win both games and you will sit in the box. The strikers have to beat the Sixers twice and boost their net run.
Adelaide Strikers (18 Points On Table)
It’s worth noting that the strikers have never defeated the Sixers in four seasons. There has never been a better time for them to write history, with the potential to host the proposed WBBL finale weekend. Points equal to the heat they only have to win and win well to get the best possible chance of winning first place.
Perth Scorchers (16 Points On Table)
Two victories against the Sydney Sixers at Lilac Hill have prepared the scorchers for a win in the final. They can consolidate their position with two home games against the coming hurricanes and can only be eliminated if they both lose and the Renegades win all remaining games. Their biggest concern will be the fact that they are losing the English star pair Amy Jones and Nat Sciver for the finals against international duties.
Sydney Sixers ( 12 Points On Table)
t is almost hard to believe that the all-conquering Sixers are in this position after having dominated in recent years. A few injuries – including star captain Ellyse Perry – have problems with the depth of the Sixers squad and for the first time since WBBL | 01, when they lost their first six games before they stormed the table to the finals They lost four games in a row. To make sure they are in the semi-finals, they have to beat the best strikers this weekend in Hurstville, preferably twice to unbalance the Renegades and the net run rate.
Melbourne Renegades ( 10 Points On Table)
A close defeat against the stars last weekend could hit the Renegades, who are now facing a tough fight to qualify for the final. They are facing a very difficult task in Brisbane, but there are two victories against Thunder and Stars. You have to win at least two – preferably three – and hope that the Sixers drop both the remaining games.
Sydney Thunder ( 9 Points On Table)
Thunder’s poor hopes of reaching the final four were dashed on Sunday under the toughest of circumstances when they lost to the Strikers in a Super Over. This means that their clash of Canberra against the stars on Wednesday is a dead gum, but they can still end the season with a winning score. International players also have the opportunity to play in two venues where games will take place during the upcoming T20 World Cup.
Hobart Hurricanes ( 7 Points On Table )
The hurricanes will ask themselves, what probably from WBBL | 05 was so close after they were so close to each other that they could not qualify for the final. Small moments and a few tactical mistakes cost her, but her last two games are a chance to develop a playgroup that should remain largely intact next season.
Melbourne Stars ( 4 Points On Table )
For the stars, the season is over, but they still have the chance to end the tournament with a high score and cause problems for the top teams. You have won an angry victory against the Renegades on the ground, and you can be sure they will win on Saturday after another.
