Preview for Dream11 Fantasy
The New South Wales Women will face the Tasmania Women in the match 22 of the ongoing WNCL season in Australia. The NSW are at the top of the points table and have more or less sealed their place in the final which is set to take place on February 16. They have won five out of six matches so far and their only loss came against Victoria.
Tasmania Tigers, on the other hand, have struggled throughout their campaign. They have managed to win only two matches in six attempts and are at the fifth position with nine points to their name. They are almost out of the race to make it to the finals and will be looking to put up a decent show. They are coming off two losses against Victoria and are facing the NSW for the first time this season.
It will be a cloudy day in North Sydney on Thursday. However, the rain is not likely to play the spoilsport with the temperature expected to hover in the early 20s according to AccuWeather.
This is the first match of the season at the venue. There is not much information about the behaviour of the surface at the North Sydney Oval No.1. Though historically it has hosted some high-scoring matches as it is also smallish in size.
