The world’s #1 women’s T20 competition is poised for a thrilling finale this week.

The top four teams do battle for the WBBL crown live and free on the Seven Network, with the Brisbane Heat gunning for a record third straight title.

The WBBL Final Series kicks off tonight (Wednesday) when the top-of-table Melbourne Stars take on Perth Scorchers in Semi-Final 1 on 7mate at 7.00pm AEDT.

With skipper Meg Lanning in sizzling form, the Stars are confident they can claim the WBBL 06 title in their maiden finals appearance, while the Scorchers have the top-order firepower in Beth Mooney and Sophie Devine to spoil their plans.

On Thursday cricket fans will enjoy another cut-throat white-ball contest when the Heat square off against Sydney Thunder in Semi Final 2 on 7mate at 7.00pm AEDT.

Brisbane will again lean on gun all-rounders Jess Jonassen and Amelia Kerr as it bids to keep its hopes of a WBBL three-peat alive, but it will have to overcome a star-studded Thunder team led by Rachael Haynes and former Heat all-rounder Sammy-Jo Johnson.

On Saturday night, the last two teams standing will meet on the Big Bash’s biggest stage – the WBBL Final – again live and free on 7mate at 7.00pm AEDT.

Seven’s WBBL Finals coverage will be led by cricket’s best commentary team, including Lisa Sthalekar, Julia Price, Mel Jones, Michael Slater, Trent Copeland and host Abbey Gelmi.

Managing Director Seven Melbourne and Head of Network Sport, Lewis Martin, said:

“The WBBL has underlined yet again that it is hands down the best T20 tournament in women’s cricket.

“Australians have been highly engaged with WBBL 06, with the season reaching 999,000 people every week and 2.6 million people nationally. It’s been an unforgettable season and the best is yet to come as the 2020 champion is crowned this week, live and free on Seven.”
