The 10th match of the Women’s National Cricket League (WNCL) 2019/20 will be played between Australian Capital Territory (ACT) Women and Queensland Women at the Blacktown International Sportspark 1, Sydney.
The match starts at 10:00 AM local time (4:30 AM IST) (11:00 PM GMT – Prev Day)
The Australian Capital Territory (ACT) Women remained unbeaten in the first leg of the tournament as they registered back to back wins. They got better of Victoria Women and South Australia Women by close margins. Their 2nd round begins against Queensland Women on Tuesday in Sydney. The Queensland Women lost to Western Australia Women but bounced back with a 101-run victory over Tasmania in September. They are boosted by the inclusion of the International players for the 2nd round and are likely to start with a big win.
Rain is expected at regular intervals on Tuesday at the Blacktown oval and we could be in for a shortened match.
The Blacktown Olympic Park Oval ground in Sydney usually produces sluggish tracks. Hence, we might not see totals more than 200 often and even those will be quite tough to chase down. There are good chances of rain for Tuesday’s match and it could quicken the pitch.
Average first innings score: 202 (Women’s List A Matches since 2018/19)
Record of chasing teams: Won – 0, Lost – 2

Probable Playing XIs:
Australia Cricket Territory Women:
Katie Mack, Claire Koski, Anna Lanning, Erin Osborne (C), Erica Kershaw (WK), Amy Yates, Carly Leeson, Matilda Lugg, Maitlan Brown, Sarah Coyte, Zoe Cooke, Nic Hancock.
Bench: Izzy Afaras, Liz Coper-Jones.
Beth Mooney, Grace Harris, Kirby Short (C), Jess Jonassen, Georgia Redmayne (WK), Laura Harris, Sammy Jo Johnson, Jemma Barsby, Holly Ferling, Delissa Kimmince, Georgia Prestwidge
Bench: Mikayla Hinkley, Josie Dooley.
Katie Mack struck fifties in both the game during the first round which includes an 83-run knock while Amy Yates bagged seven wickets including a 6-wicket haul. In current form, if Beth Mooney gets to bat up the order, she is likely to score big runs. She averaged less than 40 in the last two editions of the WNCL and scored only 1 fifty in 11 innings. Jemma Barsby claimed only one wicket in first-round matches but is likely to be among top performers as she bagged 13 wickets in the previous two editions.
Captain and Vice-Captain Selection:
Captain – Beth Mooney, Jess Jonassen, Katie Mack, Erin Osborne
Vice-Captain – Sammy Jo Johnson, Grace Harris, Maitlan Brown, Amy Yates
Suggested Playing XI for Head to Head/Small Leagues:
Keeper – Georgia Redmayne
Batters – Katie Mack (VC), Beth Mooney, Claire Koski
All-Rounders – Jess Jonassen (C), Sammy Jo Johnson, Erin Osborne, Amy Yates
Bowlers – Holly Ferling, Georgia Prestwidge, Maitlan Brown
Suggested Playing XI for Grand Leagues/Mega Leagues:
Keeper – Erica Kershaw
Batters – Katie Mack, Beth Mooney (C), Laura Harris
All-Rounders – Jess Jonassen, Grace Harris, Erin Osborne (VC), Amy Yates
Bowlers – Holly Ferling, Georgia Prestwidge, Sarah Coyte
Jess Jonassen will make it to any fantasy team considering her all-round skill. However, she is likely to bat at No.3 and in case of overs reduction, her impact in the game will go up. Hence, making her captain or vice-captain will be crucial in this match.
Queensland Women are expected to thump ACT Women by big margin.
