Put in to bat first, Perth Scorchers set a formidable target of 192 runs for Brisbane Heat in their allotted 20 overs. The standout performance of the innings came from the explosive bat of Sophie Devine, who smashed an impressive 106 runs off just 62 deliveries, including 14 fours and 4 towering sixes. Supported by Beth Mooney‘s solid half-century of 50 runs off 42 balls, and Natalie Sciver‘s quickfire 22 off 14, the Scorchers posted a challenging total for the Heat to chase.
