Brisbane Heat make easy work of Perth Scorchers at Drummoyne Oval


Brisbane Heat’s WBBL title defence has shifted into overdrive as Jess Jonassen and Beth Mooney inspired them to a clinical eight-wicket defeat of Perth Scorchers at Drummoyne Oval in Sydney.

Jonassen starred with bat (32no) and ball (4-23) while Mooney (60no) continued her magical run at the top of the order to steer the ladder-leading Heat past the Scorchers’ modest 8-112 with 23 deliveries to spare on Sunday.

Mooney, the tournament’s top run-scorer (523 at 87.17), held firm as Maddy Green and Sammy-Jo Johnson both departed in the power play to plunder her sixth half-century of a golden summer.

She found a valuable ally in all-rounder Jonassen and the pair put on an unbroken 79 for the third wicket to make easy work of the run chase, securing Brisbane’s fifth-straight victory.
