Match number six of the Women’s National Cricket League will see Victoria Women take on New South Wales Women at the Junction Oval in Melbourne. It will be the second meeting between the teams this season.
New South Wales finished atop the standings last season, but were defeated by Victoria Women in the season opener earlier this week. New South Wales Women, who won the toss and elected to bat first, scored 241 runs before being bowled out.
Victoria Women won the game by eight wickets and 44 balls to spare. Opening batseman and Australia international Elyse Villani scored a brilliant 135* and received good support from Meg Lanning and Sophie Molineux.
While Victoria Women will be eager to maintain their momentum, New South Wales Women will be desperate to open their account. As a result, we can expect a good game of cricket.

It's a decent track to bat on and there will be some help for the bowlers as well. Both Victoria Women (VCT-W) and New South Wales (NSW-W) should be wary of losing wickets early.
