Victoria names WNCL squad for opening match

Victoria will open its Women’s National Cricket League season against New South Wales tomorrow at the CitiPower Centre, Junction Oval.

The Victorian squad features several Australian players including Meg Lanning and Ellyse Perry.

Coach Lachlan Stevens spoke about the team’s preparation and the return of some key players from injury. You can download vision and audio from the links above.

The match could mark the return from injury for Georgia Wareham and Tayla Vlaeminck.

Wareham missed the second half of the WBBL due to a bone stress reaction in her shin. The leg-spinner has returned to Premier Cricket and is in line for Victorian selection.

Vlaeminck has been sidelined for almost a year after a stress fracture ruled her out of the 2020 T20 World Cup. The fast bowler has also made a successful return to Premier Cricket and is set to make a state return.

The match is closed to the public but a livestream will be available via cricket.com.au.
