Must see point.
1). The Strikers’ Penna and Mack are a dangerous batting duo
2). The Heat potentially missing Redmayne will hurt their chances

Match Prediction: ENG to win the match.
1). If ADS-W won the toss and opted to bat first, they could score 150-170 runs.
2). If BRH-W won the toss and opted to bat first,they could score 145-165 runs.
1). Katie Mack total runs - Over 19.5
Katie Mack is an aggressive batter with a fine WBBL record. She is our tip for Adelaide Strikers Women’s highest run scorer against Brisbane Heat Women.
2). Amanda Jade total runs - Over 19.5
Amanda Jade Wellington is a wicket taking spinner and has 17 dismissals so far in this tournament. She is a strong choice for Adealide Strikers Women’s top wicket taker in this game.
3). Nicola Hancock to be the best wicket taker - Nicola Hancock.
Very few batters have been able to get on top of Nicola Hancock. She is an accurate bowler and is our pick for Brisbane Heat Women’s top wicket taker against Adelaide Strikers Women.
Although the Strikers are still in third place on the WBBL ladder, they’ve got to be annoyed at themselves for losing to the Hurricanes by 23 runs. Adelaide certainly had their chances to win, but poor fielding and three dropped catches helped the Hurricanes to get the victory.
Adelaide is still 6-4 and had been on a two-game win streak before the loss, especially with one big victory over the Scorchers. To have two fantastic batters in the lineup just gives them a huge advantage, as both Madeline Penna (241 total runs) and Katie Mack (237 total runs) are two of the most lethal in the WBBL.
We’re excited to see the continual progression of bowlers Amanda-Jade Wellington (17 wickets) and Megan Schutt (14 wickets) for the remainder of the season, as the Strikers will need to be as complete as possible before the finals start.
The Heat are still top of the league with a 7-3 record and are on a three-game win streak, but there are reasons to be concerned. Star batter Georgia Redmayne, who is leading the WBBL in total runs scored with 333, picked up a hamstring injury in the recent win over Perth. She’ll certainly be out for the match vs. the Hurricanes and very likely this one against Adelaide.
The Heat aren’t without other star batters, such as Grace Harris (212 total runs), but Redmayne has been the key to victory in many of Brisbane’s games and her absence will be sorely missed until her return. This does give the Strikers a big chance to win.
However, Adelaide will still have to watch out for great bowling from Nicola Hancock and Jessica Jonassen, who both have 17 wickets for the season, as these two have been making light work of batters for some time.
