Western Australia Women will lock horns with Victoria Women in the 23rd match of the Women's National Cricket League at the WACA Ground in Perth on Thursday.
Western Australia Women have struggled throughout the tournament and have lost all six of their games. They fell to a 70-run defeat in their last match against South Australia Women as they failed to chase down 252 runs.
Western Australia Women will be hoping to win this game and give their fans something to cheer about. Molly Healy will replace Sheldyn Cooper, who suffered a low-grade quad muscle injury in the last game.
Victoria Women, on the other hand, are on cloud nine as their performances have been exceptional in this tournament. They are placed atop the points table after winning each of their six matches so far.
Victoria Women successfully chased down 234 runs in their last game to register a 6-wicket victory over Queensland Women. They will miss the services of Meg Lanning, Ellyse Perry, Sophie Molineux, Molly Strano, Tayla Vlaeminck, and Georgia Wareham, who have joined the Australia Women squad for the upcoming T20I and ODI series against the New Zealand Women.
Western Australia Women have a golden chance of ending the winning streak of Victoria Women, who will be playing without most of their main players.
