Women's National Cricket League, 2018-19

21 Sep 2018 - 9 Feb 2019

The Women’s National Cricket League is the women’s counterpart of the JLT One-Day Cup, and is similarly the official domestic limited overs cricket competition of Cricket Australia. The winner of the finals is awarded with the Ruth Preddey Cup.


The 2018-19 Women’s National Cricket League will be the 21st edition of the tournament. It commences from 21st September 2018 and is expected to be over by 9th February 2019.


History


The Women’s National Cricket League was introduced as a replacement for the Australian Women’s Cricket Championships which was held only for a short duration of two weeks since the 1930-31. The first edition of the Women’s National Cricket League was held in the 1996-97 season. The Ruth Preddey Cup was also inherited from the Women’s Cricket Championships, which itself had inherited the trophy in the 1972-73 season.


Matches


Similar to the JLT One-Day Cup, the WNCL is played in a single round-robin format followed by the finals series, based on who finishes with the most points in the table.


A win is awarded four points with the losing team getting no points while a tie or a draw results in both the team sharing two points. There is also the system of bonus points where teams are awarded bonus points for having run rate 1.25 times of the opposition.


Teams


A total of seven teams participate in the Women’s National Cricket League, all of them being permanent. Initially, the competition only had five teams. Two more teams were added to the tournament - Australian Capital Territory (2009-10) and Tasmania (2010-11), in order to increase the competition and have better representation across the country.


New South Wales Breakers are the most successful team in the history of the WNCL having won 18 titles and will also play the 2018-19 season as the defending champions.


Venues


The fixtures along with the venues for the upcoming season haven’t been released as of yet. However, it is expected the competition will be held in the cities of Adelaide, Perth, Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Canberra and Hobart.
