WBBL 2022 FINALS: Teams in Eliminator, Challenger, Final; Schedule, Timings, TV Channel & Live Streaming Info

Sydney, Nov 20: The Women's Big Bash League (WBBL) 2022 has entered its business end as we have the top-four teams who have qualified for the finals. The finallists were decided on the final day of the league stage i.e. Sunday (November 20).

Ellyse Perry-led Sydney Sixers cemented the top spot after Hobart Hurricanes lost to Adelaide Strikers in their last league game. Sixers thus, qualified for the semis before they even stepped on the field for Friday (November 18) night's match against Sydney Thunder.

North Sydney Oval and Karen Rolton Oval have been confirmed as the venues for this year's finals. The Sixers progress directly to and host the final at North Sydney Oval on November 26, having earned themselves a week off to rest and prepare for their third WBBL title.

How Teams qualified

How Teams qualified

The Strikers earned the right to host The Challenger in Adelaide after finishing on the second position, confirming their spot with victory over Sydney Thunder on November 20 evening.

The Eliminator between the Heat and Hurricanes will also be held at Karen Rolton Oval due to the one-day turnaround between matches.

The Heat finished third on the table after they were forced to split points with the Stars on Sunday afternoon when an electrical storm forced their clash in country Victoria to be abandoned.

The Hurricanes had a chance to claim the second spot, but had to settle for fourth after their eight-wicket defeat to the Sixers on Sunday.

Perth Scorchers were the unlucky side to miss the top four; they entered Sunday needing to defeat Melbourne Renegades to keep their season alive but came out on the wrong side of a rain-reduced affair at Moe's Ted Summerton Reserve.

Reserve Days:

Rain has washed out five matches this season so far, and there is a reserve day in place for The Final, with the match able to be played on November 27.

There are no reserve days for Eliminator and Challenger games and in case of a washout, the teams which ranked higher in the points table in the league stage will progress to the next stage.

Sixers gunning for third title

The last time the WBBL final was played in Sydney was in WBBL Season 6 when Sydney Thunder upset highly favoured Melbourne Stars at North Sydney Oval.

The last time the Sixers hosted a final was in WBBL Season 4, when a sell-out crowd at Drummoyne Oval watched Brisbane Heat claim their first title thanks to an epic knock from Beth Mooney.

The Sixers, who have enjoyed a dramatic change in fortunes after finishing at the bottom of the table last season, are gunning for a third title, having gone back-to-back in WBBL Seasons 2 and 3.
