It was a long journey for the Adelaide Strikers, who claimed the WBBL 2022 title. Since the 2019 edition of the tournament, Adelaide Strikers made it to the finals not just once, but thrice. After losing the 2019 and 2021 final matches, Strikers emerged victorious in the 2022 finale as they defeated two-time champions Sydney Sixers by 10 runs.

The Women's Big Bash League, which started on October 13 this year, consisted of 59 matches, including the summit clash. Eight teams gave their best throughout the eighth edition of the tournament, but only four teams, namely Hobart Hurricanes, Brisbane Heat, Adelaide Strikers, and Sydney Sixers, qualified for the knockout stage.

Sixers finished on top of the table with 23 points to their name, winning 11 games of the 14 played, and qualifying for the finale. Brisbane Heat and Hobart Hurricanes clashed in the Eliminator match, and Heat moved on to the Challenger game by defeating the Hurricanes. They faced the Adelaide Strikers next but could not move to the finale as the Strikers confirmed their spot.

It was a cut-throat competition between the Strikers and the Sixers in the finale. The Ellyse Perry-led Sydney Sixers kept their hopes high and did not give up till the end, but fell short of 10 runs during the chase, which handed Adelaide Strikers their first-ever victory and ended their wait for a WBBL championship title.
