The first match of the Women’s National Cricket League 2021 will see Queensland Fire (QUN-W) take on ACT Meteors (AM-W) at the Chisholm Neighborhood Oval in Chisholm, Australia.
Queensland Fire, who will be lead by Beth Mooney, also have the likes of Laura Harris, Jess Jonassen, and Grace Harris in their ranks. With several WBBL stars in the squad, they look a strong side on paper.
On the other hand, ACT Meteors also boast an impressive line-up, with star players such as Nicola Hancock and Erin Osborne in the team.
Both teams will want to start the tournament with a bang, and this calls for an interesting opener.

The weather forecast for the game looks good, so there is not much worry for the teams in terms of rain spoiling play. Historically, the pacers have enjoyed the conditions early in the innings. However, we expect the spinners to come into play in the middle overs. Both Queensland Fire (QUN-W) and ACT Meteors (AM-W) should be wary of losing wickets early.
