Tasmania Women square off against Western Australia Women in match number eight of the 2020-21 season of the Women’s National Cricket League (WNCL). The Allan Border Field in Brisbane will be the venue for this fixture.
Tasmania Women have had an excellent start to this tournament and have won three games while looking dominant. They are currently sitting pretty at the top of the points table. Barring the first game, which they won by 21 runs, Tasmania Women have posted comfortable wins in the other games.
Their bowling has been the major contributor. Tasmania Women defended 227 before restricting teams to 174 and 170 in their next two games. They start this game as favourites once again.
On the other hand, Western Australia Women were the last team to get off the blocks in the WNCL and they didn’t have a great start. They faced Tasmania Women and were restricted to 170 while batting first. The bowlers didn’t do too well either as they lost by nine wickets and 18.3 overs to spare. Western Australia Women will be hoping to bounce back strongly.

Venue: Allan Border Field, Brisbane
This will be the first game of the 2020-21 season at the Allan Border Field in Brisbane. There were no games played here in the Women’s Big Bash League (WBBL) as well. However, the 22-yard surface is likely to be a sporting one. There should be some movement for the pacers early on and there probably be some turn as well. A score of around 230 could be about par.
