Players to watch out:

Georgia Atkinson

The 23-year-old all-rounder managed only 170 runs and 5 wickets from 9 outings in the last edition but has had a very promising start to her campaign this season. Georgia notched up an 89 in the season opener, and it’ll be interesting to see if she can carry forward this momentum and have a breakthrough season.

Rosemary Mair

The 26-year-old pacer has 22 wickets to her name in international cricket and is vastly experienced. Rosemary bagged 6 wickets from 8 games last season, maintaining an economy rate of 4.48, and produced the best of 3/34. This edition, she has kicked off recording figures of 1/34 and it’ll be hoped she emerges as a strike bowler, consistently taking wickets.

Natalie Cox

The 29-year-old batter had a decent tournament last edition, accumulating 205 runs from 9 outings, including a best of 59. Natalie hasn’t had the best of starts this season, adding 18 runs to the tally in the series opener, but will be backed to capitalize on the start she has had and post a significant score in forthcoming fixtures.

Gabby Sullivan

The 25-year-old up-and-coming pacer finished as the competition’s leading wicket-taker last year, with 21 wickets at an average of 15.04 and an economy rate of 3.87. She has picked up from where she left off, producing a 3-fer (3/48) in her first outing this season. She is also a handy contributor with the bat, and eyes will be on her progress this summer, especially following the ’22-23 season.


The center wicket at Fitzherbert Park, offers favorable conditions for bowlers, particularly pacers, leading to an average score in the 180s. Batters face challenges on this wicket but can convert their starts once they find their rhythm.


With rain on the radar throughout the match duration, the game could result in a washout. The temperature is expected to hover around 17°C, with light winds and humidity of 95%.
