Courtney Sippel removed Alyssa Healy and Ashleigh Gardner in a double-wicket maiden to hand Brisbane Heat a dream start in the powerplay in the WBBL clash against Sydney Sixers. Ellyse Perry scored just two runs from 12 deliveries and Shafali Verma (7) was also dismissed cheaply as the Sixers sank to 4-34. Nicole Bolton hung around for a crucial 25 off 31 and it took a one-handed stunner from Mikayla Hinkley to dislodge the former Australia batter, while Radha Yadav added an important 17 not out to help the Sixers to 7-91. Lauren Cheatle (3-16) ensured the chase was not straightforward, the Brisbane club nonetheless reached their target with 35 balls to spare and three wickets in hand.
