The WBBL|04 final is here, with the Sydney Sixers set to take on the Brisbane Heat at Drummoyne Oval in Sydney. The match is scheduled to get underway at 10:10am (AEDT) on Australia Day – Saturday, January 26.
The match is anticipated to run for just under three hours, meaning it will wrap up shortly before 1pm (AEDT), allowing for an hour turn around between the end of that match and Day 3 of the Test match in Brisbane between Australia and Sri Lanka, setting up for an enormous Australia Day for cricket fans.
The WBBL final is being contested by the Sixers, who were minor premiers and needed a super over to get past the Melbourne Renegades in last weekend’s semi-final, and the Heat, who upset the Sydney Thunder in the final over last week after finishing second in the regular season.
