Perth Scorcher Edwards and Knight, a Hobart Hurricane, have helped their respective franchises into the semi-finals with impressive displays.

Second behind only Meg Lanning in the run charts, Edwards has hit form at the right time and racked up 354 of her runs at 70.8 in her last eight innings.

Knight’s Hurricanes finished second in the table, meaning they will play third-placed Sydney Sixers in the semis on Friday.

Knight, the Hurricanes skipper, has performed with both bat and ball.

The opening batter has struck 347 runs at 24.78, the sixth most in the competition, and took 17 wickets at 15.52 with her off-spin.
