Preview for Dream11 Fantasy
Tasmania and Victoria Women will lock horns in a crucial game of the ongoing WNCL season in Australia. Tasmania are in desperate need of a victory as they have won only two matches out of five and stand fifth in the table with only nine points to their name. Victoria are fourth with 13 points and have won a game more than their counterparts.
Moreover, Victoria Women also have an advantage of beating Tasmania in the previous game itself. They chased down 199 without much fuss thanks to an all-round show from Sophie Molineux (80 runs and 3/33). Nicola Carey (73) was the only shining light for Tasmania with the bat and she will hope other batters’ support in this game.
The forecast in Hobart is not at all encouraging with the rain expected to fall overnight and during the match time as well. Heavy showers are predicted from 9 AM local time and the conditions will remain cloudy although the rain will stop in the afternoon. The game will either be a shortened one or it will be a washout.
In the only match played at the TCA Ground this season, the chasing team gunned down the target 199 runs easily. With the rain around, the team winning the toss is expected to bowl first. The pacers will most likely get considerable help from the pitch thanks to the conditions.
Average first innings score: 198 (Only game played at the venue this season)
Record of the chasing teams: Won – 0; Lost – 1
