Adelaide Strikers Women vs Brisbane Heat Women Predictions
It is not going to be an easy pitch at Invermay Park, Launceston in Australia as there are chances of 3-14c with light showers and a moderate breeze. Overall it is a good pitch for batting but can get slow till the second innings and might not help the batters that much. Whosoever wins the toss will want to bat first considering the forecast and also a strong batting lineup. Both the sides are very balanced and boast a great batting unit. The only deciding factor will be the bowling attack. With doubt, the Strikers can pull off a win here with a bowling attack like that but the upper hand has to be with Brisbane Heat. Indian star Poonam Yadav and Nadine de Klerk can do wonders on a pitch like that.
