Victoria Women and New South Wales Breakers will square off against each other for the second consecutive time in the 6th match of the Women’s National Cricket League 2021 on Friday. Victoria Women looks like a confident team as they beat mighty New South Wales Breakers in the previous outing by 8 wickets and 44 balls to spare which is huge in terms of net run-rate.
With this win, they moved to 2nd place in the table with a net run-rate of 0.852. Elyse Villani, Sophie Molineux, and Meg Lanning were the match winners for Victoria. Their batters are in good form and even bowlers executing their plans well and they want to continue the same form for the rest of the matches.
On the other hand, New South Wales Breakers were trapped by Victoria Women in their last game as they lost the match by 8 wickets. Despite putting a reasonable score on the board they couldn’t defend the target. Rachael Haynes, Alyssa Healy, and Ashleigh Gardner are the star players for New South Wales Breakers.
