Samantha Bates301916.3382000
10.5 to SJ Johnson, hoicked across the line, excellent catch right on the line at long-on. Wonder why she'd try to fetch it from way outside off. Didn't get enough power on the swing.. 75/4
Stafanie Taylor201316.5050100
3.2 to GM Harris, holes out off a full toss to mid-off. Stepped out to go over the top, not sure what held her back, she just chipped this to the fielder at the edge of the ring.. 21/1
Rene Farrell403017.50104010
5.1 to BL Mooney, leading edge, and mid-off takes an absolute dolly. Big swing for Farrell, this also held up just a touch on the surface. Heat in early trouble here. First wicket since returning from injury for Farrell. 34/2
Maisy Gibson201919.5040200
6.1 to KL Short, the captain's gone. Looking to drive on the up, skews off the top part of the bat as she drives and this is a good catch by Blackwell, moving to her left.. 38/3
Lisa Griffith10909.0021000
Nicola Carey402315.7592010
18.4 to L Wolvaardt, deceived by the slower delivery, played too early in trying to loft over cover, missed it, middle stump took a knock as this dipped under the bat to miss her swing.. 125/7
Belinda Vakarewa402416.0092010
11.6 to JL Jonassen, walloped across the line but hit straight down to deep midwicket. Hit beautifully, almost as if Jonassen forgot there was a fielder there.. 78/5

Sammy-Jo Johnson401213.00192010
0.4 to RL Haynes, stands tall and bunts this into the off side. 1/1
Jess Jonassen3031110.3362210
19.6 to NJ Carey, tossed up on leg, slog swept off the middle of the bat, it looked as though we were going into a super over but Haidee Birkett has plucked that out of thin air after making considerable ground to her right from deep squareleg. And that takes Brisbane Heat to their first WBBL final. 136/7
Delissa Kimmince403318.2583100
8.6 to RH Priest, whipped straight down the throat of deep square, the dangerous Priest is gone.. 66/3
Grace Harris301615.3391010
16.3 to SR Taylor, bowled, and that's the West Indies captain gone. Generous flight, she came down the wicket, the ball, as though held on a string, dropped on her and she ran past it. 100/4
Jemma Barsby2023311.5032110
6.6 to NE Stalenberg, the dip and turn has done the trick. Looked to step out and heave leg side, didn't get to the pitch, swung through early, missed it and saw the ball sneak through the gap to hit top of off.. 57/2
18.1 to AJ Blackwell, tossed up, she goes down the ground but Blackwell, who got the crucial six and a four in the previous over, has holed out to long-on, who did not have to move an inch, camped under it and took it comfortably. 117/5
18.6 to RM Farrell, flatter on middle, she shuffles across to the off side to try and open up the leg side but misses on the sweep. 128/6
