Warwick captain ready to lead Heat in the west

CRICKET: Delissa Kimmince and her Brisbane Heat WBBL team will head to Perth this weekend desperate to beat the Perth Scorchers in two day games at the WACA.

While some of the women's T20 Big Bash games will be played at the same venues as the men's matches, the women's league started earlier than the men.

At the weekend, former Warwick junior Kimmince led the Heat to a first-up win against the Sydney Sixers before the Sixers won the second game between the two teams by eight wickets.

On Sunday, the Heat batted first and scored 9-83 with Kimmince run out for a duck after facing only four balls.

The Sixers then scored 2-86 to win with four overs to spare.

The Heat are past winners of the national T20 competition after a 2014 Perth final when Kimmince batted much faster than a run a ball to win player of the match with a score of 78.

On Boxing Day and December 27, the Heat will play two games at Allan Border Field. The last of the preliminary games will be played on January 21 and the finals series will be in late January. Each team will play 14 preliminary games.
