Players to watch out:

Katie Mack

The 30-year-old batter, in the ’23/24 WNCL season, averaging 50.33, has accumulated 151 runs from 4 outings and registered the best score of 95*. In the recently concluded WBBL edition, Katie had a brilliant run, consistently scoring runs. She’ll be relied upon for significant contributions in the 2nd WNCL leg as well.

Alisha Bates

The 21-year-old all-rounder looked promising during the 1st leg fixtures and top-scored with 43 against a good South Australian bowling lineup. She bowled economical spells while also picking up a wicket. It’ll be watched how Alisha capitalizes on the start she’s had, and it’ll be worth tracking her progress.

Georgia Redmayne

The 30-year-old keeper-batter, in 4 outings, put on 163 runs on the board, averaging 40.75 in the first leg of WNCL fixtures. Georgia didn’t score a lot of runs in the recently concluded WBBL but managed starts consistently. It’ll be hoped she builds on the runs and significantly impacts the WNCL again.
