Cricket Australia today confirmed that Drummoyne Oval, Sydney will host the Semi-Finals of the Rebel WBBL|04 next Saturday 19 January, following the Sydney Thunder’s victory over the Melbourne Renegades on Tuesday afternoon at Spotless Stadium.
While the Sydney Thunder and Sydney Sixers still need to battle it out for the top position before the regular season concludes next Monday, the result on Tuesday afternoon ensured that no other teams can secure the minor premiership.
The race for the final two positions in the top four will be hotly contested, as the Brisbane Heat, Perth Scorchers, Melbourne Renegades, and Melbourne Stars all remain in contention to play finals.
This is the first time that both WBBL Semi-Finals will be standalone matches, with both fixtures taking place on same day at the one location. The top ranked team out of the two victorious sdies from the day’s play, will host the WBBL|04 final the following weekend on Australia Day, Saturday 26 January.
The WBBL|04 Finals Series will support Dolly’s Dream, with Cricket Australia set to donate 100% of all ticket sales to the charity. Dolly’s Dream aims to create positive change in the community to prevent bullying.
