Victoria name unchanged WNCL squad

Victoria has named an unchanged 13-player squad for their upcoming WNCL matches against Tasmania at the CitiPower Centre.

The squad again features Australian all-rounders Ellyse Perry and Annabel Sutherland, who both registered centuries in Victoria’s first game of the season last week.

Tasmania will travel to Melbourne for back-to-back matches on Tuesday and Thursday.

Victoria’s first two matches resulted in a last-over loss and a tie. WNCL rules state a super over is to be played if scores are tied, however, the rain was deemed too heavy to play the super over and the match finished in a tie.

“We didn’t quite get the results we were after last week, but were really encouraged by signs shown in both matches. The group will be able to learn from some key moments, but we were pleased to take both games right to the end,” Cricket Victoria’s Head of Female Cricket, Sharelle McMahon said.

“Having Annabel and Ellyse start the season in that fashion is a great reward for them, but is also an excellent learning opportunity for the rest of our squad. It was fantastic to have Sophie Molineux back out on the park and leading the squad for the first time.

“After facing last season’s finalists, we now face Tasmania who won the competition, so we’re looking forward to the challenge ahead of us this week before the squad turns their attention to the WBBL.”

Entry to the CitiPower Centre for WNCL matches is free.
