Preview:

The Western Australia Women started their WNCL 2019-20 campaign with a convincing win over the last year runners-up Queensland Women. Taneale Peschel and Sophie Devine’s opening burst reduced the hosts to 28/4 by end of 7th over. Both picked up three wickets each but Queensland finished on 189 from 104/8 as Jemma Barsby scored a 70-ball 63 while batting at No.9.

Skipper Cloe Piparo (76) and Nicole Bolton (77) shared a 156-run partnership for the 3rd wicket after a couple of early wickets. Later, they lost three wickets in space of 12 deliveries but the target was achieved with 41 balls to spare. The winning side will now take on the Tasmania Women at the same venue on Sunday.
