PITCHES AND CONDITIONS
The match will hold in the same ground in which England vs Australia was held, so the conditions are most likely to be the same. Both the team can assess the conditions in a better way by critically analyzing the same match. The pitch has a lot of bounce and carry, which signifies that it will be favored for fast bowlers. Interestingly, the pitch at WACA is regarded as the quickest and bounciest in the world. The outfield is exceptionally fast.
There have also been 21 Women’s Big Bash League matches played, out of which 7 has been won by the team batting second. Which shows that team winning the toss, would prefer fielding first. So it’s the toss on which a lot of cards of both the teams would depend upon.
