SAS vs ACT Team Previews
South Australian Scorpions Women
The Scorpions have won three out of the six matches that they have played so far. Two out of the remaining matches were rained-out, though, so they have lost just one match.
The batting line-up looks quite decent on paper with four players that have scored a fifty-plus score already. Webb and de Broughe are the players that have scored the most runs so far and will be the key wickets in this contest.
Betts, Barsby, and Paterson are the three bowlers that have done well for the Scorpions. The bowling attack is quite disciplined and will fancy itself against the ACT Meteors.
South Australian Scorpions Women Playing 11
B Patterson, Emma de Broughe, Josie Dooley, Courtney Webb, Annie O'Neil, T McPharlin, Jemma Barsby, Kate Peterson, Ellie Falconer, S Betts, Brooke Harris.
ACT Meteors Women
The ACT Meteors have their task cut out for them in this match. We think their batting is definitely a run below in skill and quality when compared with the Scorpions. Osborne is the only player with more than 100 runs in total to her name and even she has been quite inconsistent.
Getting enough runs to consistently put up a fight against the other teams has been a problem for the ACT Meteors and we do not see that changing just yet.
Cooke and Leeson are the two bowlers that have acquitted themselves quite well in this edition of the Women's National Cricket League. The supporting cast of bowlers around them is perhaps not the strongest but it is not the worst either.
ACT Meteors Women Playing 11
Katie Mack, Erica Kershaw, Erin Osborne, Olivia Porter, Rebecca Carter, Carly Leeson, Annie Wikman, Zoe Cooke, Amy Yates, Chloe Rafferty, Gabrielle Sutcliffe.

Pitch and Conditions
The conditions in Canberra are forecast to be a bit overcast and some rain may fall as well. The pitch should be good for batting with a nice amount of pace and carry. Scores have been quite low in WNCL 2021-22 so far and we think something around 200-220 could be very competitive.
