Regardless of the result, it will be a historic day for Tasmanian women’s cricket, with the team making their first finals appearance since the team’s introduction to the competition in season 2009-10 – to date, the Tigers’ best finish in the WNCL is third in 2018-19 and 2020-21.

The Tigers will go into tomorrow’s match with confidence, not just because seven consecutive wins during the regular season saw them finish atop the standings, but because they enjoyed a five-wicket, bonus point win against them in their last outing.

On that occasion it was new recruit Molly Strano who starred for the Tigers, finishing with the wickets of both South Australian openers as well as 49 unbeaten runs off just 40 deliveries to her name.

South Australia will be vying for just their second WNCL title, whilst it will be the second consecutive year New South Wales have not featured in the final, after featuring in every final since the competition’s inception up until last season.

The Tigers have named an unchanged squad of 14 for tomorrow's WNCL final:

Chloe Abel
Sarah Coyte
Maisy Gibson
Corinne Hall
Emma Manix-Geeves
Sasha Moloney
Rachel Priest
Clare Scott
Hayley Silver-Holmes
Amy Smith
Emily Smith
Naomi Stalenberg
Molly Strano

Corinne Hall – who has announced that if selected in the final XI, it will be her final game for the Tigers – will become the most-capped Tasmanian player, with 63 WNCL appearances to her name.

The match will begin at 10.30am tomorrow, with gates opening at 10am for free entry for all.  There will be activities and giveaways for the whole family,

For those who can’t make it to the game, the match will be broadcast on Kayo Sports and cricket.com.au.
