Sydney Thunder and Perth Scorchers have joined Brisbane Heat and Melbourne Stars in the Women’s Big Bash semi-finals on the final day of group games.

Thunder faces defending champions Brisbane Heat after a six-wicket victory over Hobart Hurricanes.

The Scorchers edge into the knockout stage to play Stars despite a three-run loss to Adelaide Strikers.

It was at the expense of Sydney Sixers who finished level on points with Perth but with an inferior net run-rate.

Brisbane and Melbourne had already comfortably qualified for the semi-finals prior to the last round of fixtures.

Six England players could feature in the semi-finals with all-rounder Nat Sciver and fast bowler Katherine Brunt for the Stars, spinner Sarah Glenn and wicketkeeper Amy Jones for the Scorchers and all-rounder Heather Knight and opening bat Tammy Beaumont for Thunder.
