Match Details:

The 27th match of the Women’s National Cricket League (WNCL) 2019-20 will be played between Australia Capital Territory (ACT) Women and Tasmania Women at the Phillip Oval in Canberra.

The match starts at 10:00 AM local time (4:30 AM IST) (12:00 AM GMT).

Preview for Dream11 Fantasy

This is a dead rubber for both the sides, ACT Women and Tasmania Women, as they have already knocked out of the tournament. The ACT Women have managed to win three matches in seven outings and are at the fifth position with 12 points to their name. However, they are coming off a morale-boosting win over Western Australia Women against whom they chased down 241 with two wickets in hand.

Tasmania Women, on the other hand, went down to New South Wales Women in a thrilling game defending 200 runs. They picked nine wickets of the opposition but couldn’t stop them from winning the match and would love to end the season with a consolation victory. With nothing to lose, both the teams will look to play freely and another last-over thriller is on the cards.

Weather Report

With the rain coming down in most parts of Australia, the forecast is for a cloudy day in Canberra on Thursday. Though the rain is unlikely to play spoilsport in this match with only 7% chances of showers predicted by AccuWeather. The temperature will hover around 21-23 Degrees Celsius during the match.

Pitch Report

This is only the second 50-over game at the venue with the previous played only a couple of days ago between ACT Women and Western Australia Women. In that game, 240 almost turned out to be a par score which suggests that the pitch is a decent one to bat on and the team winning is expected to bat first. Though with overcast conditions on offer, bowling first is also a good option.

Average first innings score: 240 (only game played at the venue this season)

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