Tickets for the Rebel Women’s Big Bash League semi-finals on Saturday 19 January are on sale from today.
With only Sydney Thunder and Sydney Sixers remaining in contention to finish top of the table, Cricket Australia yesterday confirmed that Drummoyne Oval in Sydney’s inner west will host the semi-finals.
“It’s a good feeling knowing that we have locked in a home final,” said Sydney Thunder keeper Rachel Priest.
“We have working hard to ensure we finish top two and give ourselves the best opportunity to make the final.
“We also love playing in front of our home crowd. They have given us fantastic support this season and it’s great that they can be there to cheer us on at the business end.”
Drummoyne Oval will be transformed into a summer cricket festival with the four best WBBL clubs playing over one action-packed day.
Semi Final 1: 10:40am AEDT
Semi Final 2: 1:50pm AEDT
Adults $10, concession $5 and kids are free with all ticket sales will go to support the fight against bullying.
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. The top ranked team out of the two victorious sides from the day’s play will host the WBBL|04 final the following weekend on 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.
Thunder travel to Cairns this weekend to play the Brisbane Heat on Saturday (7:15pm AEDT) in their final round match before finals. The game will be streamed live on cricket.com.au or the CA Live app with radio broadcast via ABC Grandstand.
WBBL|04 semi-finals will be broadcast live on FOX Cricket, Seven Network and ABC Radio.
