BHW vs ADSW Match Prediction & Betting Tips - Nov 24, 2021
WBBL 2021-22 is now in its final few matches as the knockouts begin. The format is a bit different from other leagues in that the third and fourth-placed teams play against each other in the Eliminator. The second-placed team waits for the winner in a 'Challenger' and the first-placed team from the group is already assured of a place in the Final.
The WBBL 2021-22 Eliminator is going to be played between the Brisbane Heat Women and the Adelaide Strikers Women. The cricket betting sites have offered very similar odds for both with Brisbane Heat as the slight favorites.

BHW vs ADSW Team Previews
Brisbane Heat Women
Brisbane Heat Women ended up winning eight out of their 14 matches this season and just seemed to lose some momentum towards the end of the group stage. That is a dangerous situation as you want the team to peak at just the right time. We think this is easily one of the most dangerous batting lineups in the entire competition.
The focus is going to be on Grace Harris but she is far from the only one that is going to pose a threat to the Adelaide Strikers. Georgia Redmayne, Georgia Voll, and Lauren Kimmince have all scored quite consistently this season as well. The fact that Brisbane Heat managed to beat the Melbourne Renegades with a big margin is encouraging but losing two out of three most recent matches is not a good sign. Especially because one of those defeats was against the Adelaide Strikers.
Nicola Hancock, Jess Jonassen, and Nadine de Klerk are the bowlers that we are going to be looking out for in this contest. Brisbane Heat is a very well-balanced team with a dangerous batting lineup. It also has the experience of succeeding in knockout games. Only the recent form is a worry.

Adelaide Strikers Women
The Adelaide Strikers have had the most remarkable of WBBL seasons. They were very poor in the first half but then roared into form during the second half of the season. Six wins in its previous seven matches have allowed the Adelaide Strikers Women to qualify for the WBBL 2021-22 Eliminator and come into it with a fair bit of momentum.
Katie Mack and Laura Wolvaardt are the big-name batters of the group but do not count out the experienced Dane van Niekerk either. She has a habit of turning it on when the knockouts appear.
The Strikers are capable of matching Brisbane Heat with the bat but there is a slight dependency on Katie Mack that makes us a bit uncomfortable. On the bowling front, Megan Schutt and Amanda Wellington are going to pose the biggest threat to the Brisbane heat batters. If the Strikers can pick up one or two early wickets, then they are certainly going to have a great shot at winning this match.
