Heat proves the hottest in WBBL

Mercury (Hobart) - - SPORT -

BRIS­BANE Heat has banked top spot on the WBBL lad­der and se­cured home-ground ad­van­tage for this week­end’s fi­nals af­ter beat­ing the Mel­bourne Stars by eight wick­ets yes­ter­day.

With rain de­lay­ing the start of play at Ci­tiPower Cen­tre in St Kilda and re­duc­ing play to 10 overs apiece, Beth Mooney starred as the Heat chased down the Stars’ 6-87 with eight de­liv­er­ies re­main­ing.

The con­sis­tent opener crushed an un­beaten 50 off 27 balls — her eighth 50 of the season — and was un­trou­bled in car­ry­ing her side across the line and into top spot.
