CRICKET: Fifteen runs can mean a lot in cricket and that was the margin as Brisbane Heat secured third in the WBBL T20 competition.

The win against Hobart Hurricanes gave the Heat five wins from nine games and kept Hobart at four wins from nine games.

Brisbane has a net run rate of -0.12 so large scores will be the order of the day late in the competition.

The top two teams are Sydney Sixers and Perth Scorchers with five wins from eight games.

Kimmince was down to bat at No.7 but wasn't needed as Beth Mooney scored 78 for the Heat in 2-153 today in Hobart.

In reply, the Hurricanes made 8-138. Kimmince took 0-25 off her three overs.

The best Heat bowler was Jemma Barsby with 3-34 off four overs.

After captaining the Heat for the first half of the competition, Kimmince told officials she wanted to stand down from the leadership to concentrate on her own form.

Kirby Short is the new Heat captain, Earlier this season, Kimmince captained the Queensland Fire to the final of the national 50-over women's competition.

The same two teams will meet at Blundstone Arena, Hobart, at 6.30pm tomorrow.

The Heat will then return home to play games on January 14-15 against Melbourne Renegades at Allan Border Field at 10am.

One of the biggest days of cricket in Queensland this year will be on January 20 at the Gabba when the Heat and Strikers women will meet at 1.10pm as a forerunner to the Brisbane Heat men's game against the Melbourne Renegades at 6.40pm.
