Thursday, February 1 at Optus Stadium, Perth

Rebel WBBL|03 SF1: Sydney Thunder v Perth Scorchers 

Time: 12.10pm local (3.10pm AEDT)

Broadcast: Live and free on ONE 

The second-placed Thunder will take on the third-ranked Perth Scorchers, who sealed their spot in the semi-finals with a win over the Renegades in Melbourne on Sunday. Due to the double-header nature of the Big Bash finals, the Scorchers will also have the home-ground advantage. The league have opted to put fans first by swapping the two WBBL semi-finals fixtures, to ensure fans in Adelaide and Perth would have the best possible opportunity to view their teams in the play-offs.

Points were split when they met during the regular season, with the Thunder taking a one-run win on January 7 before the Scorchers bounced back to win by eight-wickets the following day.
