Queensland Fire – Zoe Cooke, Sianna Ginger, Lucy Hamilton, Nic Hancock, Laura Harris, Mikayla Hinkley, Kira Holmes, Charli Knott, Grace Parsons, Georgia Redmayne, Courtney Sippel, Georgia Voll, Lauren Winfield-Hill

Players to watch out:

Georgia Redmayne

The 30-year-old keeper-batter, averaging 53.28, has amassed 373 runs from 7 outings and registered the highest of 112. Georgia had a good start to this WNCL season but only managed a string of starts in the WBBL. However, as WNCL resumed, she notched up successive scores of 112, 43, and 55. The veteran has been a consistent performer and will be banked upon for the runs.

Zoe Cooke

The 28-year-old pacer has scalped 12 wickets from 6 outings, maintaining an economy rate of 3.95, and in her most recent outing produced the best of 5/30. Zoe picked up 4 wickets in the 1st leg of 4 WNCL outings, and as the WNCL returned, she recorded figures of 3/25 and followed up with a hat-trick en route to the fifer. It’ll be hoped Zoe makes the most of this form.

Emma de Broughe

The 23-year-old batter has posted 253 runs at an average of 36.14 from 7 WNCL outings this summer. Emma wasn’t utilized to the best in the Bash, and when she was, she registered a couple of fine scores in the 40s. She was dismissed for 1 and 0 when the WNCL returned and staged a turnaround in her most recent outing, scoring a fluent 90. It’ll be watched if she can go back-to-back.

Amanda-Jade Wellington

The 26-year-old all-rounder in this WNCL edition has added 175 runs to the tally from 6 outings and bagged 12 wickets from 7 WNCL innings, with an economy rate of 4.58. Yet another successful WBBL season and yet another successful WNCL edition for Amanda who, in her most recent outing, registered figures of 50 and 0/42. The team will rely on her for her all-round services.
