ACT Meteors will lock horns with New South Wales Breakers in the 19th match of the Women’s National Cricket League at the EPC Solar Park in Canberra on Sunday.
The last time these two teams met, the Breakers registered a 9-wicket victory over the Meteors.
ACT Meteors will be disappointed with their performances in this season so far. They have lost 4 of their 5 matches and are placed in the penultimate position on the points table. The Meteors will be eager to pick up a win from this match and get back to winning ways.
New South Wales Breakers, on the other hand, have had a rather ordinary tournament run so far. They have won two of their five matches and are placed in the third spot on the points table. The Breakers will start as the favorites to win this game and register a second consecutive victory over the out-of-form ACT Meteors.
Nonetheless, with four valuable points up for grabs, we can expect another thrilling contest between these two sides on Sunday.

Match: ACT Meteors vs New South Wales Breakers, Match 19
Date: 7th March 2021, 04:30 AM IST
Venue: EPC Solar Park, Canberra.
The pitch at the EPC Solar Park is evenly balanced, and has equally supported both the batters and the bowlers. The pacers will get some movement early on with the new ball. However, the wicket gets easier to bat on as the match progresses. So, chasing should be a preferable option on this ground.
