Players to watch out:

Amy Edgar

The 26-year-old all-rounder, this WNCL season, has accumulated 102 runs from 3 outings, while also scalping 11 wickets from 7 bowling innings. In the 2nd WNCL leg, Amy, while returning successive figures of 3/19, 1/39, and 1/24, in her only batting outing, scored a solid 51 in her most recent appearance. The team will count on her to deliver the goods.

Lilly Mills

The 23-year-old leg-spinner has bagged 9 wickets from 6 WNCL outings this summer and has put behind a quiet, yet notable Big Bash season. On her WNCL return, Lilly returned figures of 2/23 and has followed up with figures of 1/34 and a season-best of 4/28 in her most recent outing. It’ll be hoped she extends this form, providing breakthroughs.

Tahlia Wilson

The 24-year-old keeper-batter has added 145 runs to the tally from 7 WNCL outings this season. Tahlia hasn’t been at her best thus far, struggling for consistency, but will be backed to build on the momentum and rediscover her form. She is a highly promising batter and has registered scores of 41, 0, and 36 in her previous 3 outings.

Saskia has registered scores of 89, 8, 15, and 29 in her previous few outings, while returning figures of 1/54, 0/18, 0/12, and 2/30. She is an in-form player and will be relied upon to add value.
