Players to watch out:

Nicola Carey

The 30-year-old all-rounder has been outstanding for the team, especially with the bat, amassing 350 runs from 6 outings and taking 4 wickets. Nicola has been particularly impressive in the 2nd leg, registering successive scores of 113, 38, 40, and 58. She’ll be relied upon for the runs, while it’ll also be expected of her to perform at her best with the ball.

Amy Smith

The 19-year-old leg-spinner, in 5 WNCL outings this season, has bagged 8 wickets, maintaining an economy rate of 5.51. Amy hasn’t consistently picked up wickets, though she has been economical and will be backed to build on the confidence of her recent five-fa. She has been handy with the bat and will be relied upon for the goods.

Georgia Voll

The 20-year-old all-rounder, averaging 40.42, has accumulated 283 runs from 8 outings while taking just one wicket. On her WNCL return, Georgia notched up her season best of 101 and followed up with a score of 69*. She hasn’t been successful with the ball but maintained an economy rate of 4.70, and it’ll be watched if she can capitalize on this form.

Grace Parsons

The 20-year-old leg-spinner has emerged as a standout for the team this season, scalping 14 wickets from 8 outings, averaging 17.35 with the ball, and recording an economy rate of 3.99. Grace, in her previous 3 outings, has returned figures of 1/21, 3/36, and 2/44, and it’ll be hoped she continues to send down match-winning spells.

Pitch:

The Blundstone Arena traditionally dishes batting-friendly surfaces and expect it to act the same this time around as well. The average score at the venue is in the 240s and the wicket also has enough in it for bowlers, especially spinners.

It’ll be a warm sunny day at the Blundstone Arena as the temperature is expected to hover around 20°C with light winds and a humidity level of 58% on the forecast. With no expected rain interruptions, we’ve got a complete game on our hands.
