The Sydney Sixers have strolled to an eight-wicket win over The Brisbane Heat in their WBBL match at Sydney's Drummoyne Oval.

A stunning catch on the final ball sealed Brisbane Heat 's semi-final win over the Thunder at Drummoyne Oval.

Openers Beth Mooney and Maddy Green contributed 25 apiece and No.3 Jess Jonassen top-scored with 33 to cap a fine all-round game before the Harris sisters finished with a bang to make light work of the chase.

Leg-spinner Dane van Niekerk (2-19) was the pick of the bowlers after earlier top-scoring with the bat for the Sixers who started horribly, recovered in the middle and stalled late.

Healy, Perry in world-record WBBL spree

  Healy, Perry in world-record WBBL spree The power of Alyssa Healy and sheer class of birthday girl Ellyse Perry saw records tumble as the Sixers dominated the Melbourne Stars in WBBL. Healy (106 not out off 53 balls) and Perry (87 not out off 68) were in another stratosphere, taking the Sixers to 0-199 in their innings at the WACA on Sunday.

Harmanpreet Kaur's explosive knock set the scene for the Thunder, with Grace Harris's own fireworks not enough for the Heat .

The Sydney Sixers have strolled to an eight-wicket win over The Brisbane Heat in their WBBL match at Sydney's Drummoyne Oval.

Six days after combining for a record-smashing, unbroken 199-run opening stand, Alyssa Healy and Ellyse Perry both departed cheaply to put the Sixers on the back foot.

Healy was skittled for five by a peach from Sammy-Jo Johnson before Perry, averaging 139.50 in this WBBL campaign entering the match, was trapped plumb in front for two by Delissa Kimmince.

Van Niekerk (28), Marizanne Kapp (26), Ash Gardner (24) and Erin Burns (23) chipped in with cameos but no Sydney batter was able to convert their start or free their arms against some impressive Heat bowling.

Player-of-the-match Jonassen (2-20) and Kimmince (2-26) were the chief destroyers while Johnson (1-11) was miserly with the new rock.

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.
