Match Details:

The 21st match of the Women’s National Cricket League (WNCL) 2019-20 will be played between Western Australia (ACT) Women and South Australia at the WACA in Perth.

The match starts at 10:00 AM local time (7.30 AM IST) (2:00 AM GMT).


Preview for Dream11 Fantasy

The second-placed Western Australia Women will host the struggling South Australia Women in the match 21 of the ongoing WNCL season on Thursday. Having defeated the same opposition by a mammoth 102 runs on Tuesday, the home side goes into this match as the favourites once again. However, South Australia, having lost five out of five so far, would hope to put up some fight this time around.

But they will have to improve their bowling a lot having picked only 31 wickets in five matches and have got bowled out thrice in return. Western Australia, on the other hand, will look to strengthen their place in the top two. They already have 17 points to their name in five matches and it is only a matter of time when they will seal their place in the final.

Weather Report/Condition

The weather forecast in Perth on Thursday is absolutely clear and expect a full game of cricket to take place. The sun will be shining bright with no chances of rain coming down. The temperature is expected to hover around 24-26 Degrees Celsius during the match according to AccuWeather.

In the only match played at the venue this season, the team batting first scored more than 250 runs and the trend should continue for this game as well. The team winning the toss should bat first and then look to defend the total later with the pitch slowing down a bit.

Average first innings score: 259 (In the only match played at the WACA this WNCL season)

Record of the chasing teams: Won – 0; Lost – 1
