Like the Tigers, Victoria also remain unbeaten from their first four matches, with the Tigers narrowly edging them out for top spot on the standings after their tie with the NSW Breakers on Thursday. However, with six players in the Victorian squad named in the 17-player Australian squad to travel to New Zealand next month, there’s not doubt that the Victorian line up will be stacked.
Again, history will be in the visitors’ favour when it comes to the match tomorrow, with Victoria having won their six previous WNCL clashes against the Tigers on the bounce. However, if the 2021 Tigers have anything to say about it, history will change.
Interestingly, Victoria and Tasmania have each taken four wickets within the opening 10 overs of matches this WNCL campaign – the joint-most of any team in the competition – which means both teams rather evenly pegged on 2021’s terms.
The Tigers will have to be wary of Victorian captain, Meg Lanning, however, who – as well as being in scintillating form thus far this WNCL season – has logged three centuries in her last six innings against Tasmania.
The Tigers have named an unchanged squad of 13 to face Victoria:
