New South Wales Women will take on Queensland Women in a Women’s National Cricket League (WNCL) fixture at the North Sydney Oval in Sydney on Sunday. It is a must-win game for both teams.
The New South Wales Women didn’t have a great start to their WNCL campaign. They lost their first two games before tying their third against Tasmania Women. But New South Wales Women made a strong comeback halfway through the tournament, winning three matches on the bounce.
However, New South Wales Women lost their last game against Queensland Women. In order to progress in the WNCL, they need to beat Queensland Women and also hope Australian Capital Territory Women defeat South Australia Women.
Queensland Women also had a slow start in the WNCL, losing their first two games before finding form. They have won four out of their last five matches and are currently third in the points table. A win over New South Wales Women will seal their spot in the WNCL final.

Only one WNCL game has been played at the North Sydney Oval. The pitch was a good one to bat on and the ball came on to the bat nicely, enabling the batters to play shots on the up. More of the same can be expected for the New South Wales-Queensland Women game. There might be some early movement with the new ball and spinners are always in the game in Sydney. A score of around 250-260 could be par on this surface.
