TAW vs SAS Match Prediction & Betting Tips - Mar 26, 2022
It's been exciting to witness how Cricket has evolved over the last few years. We have seen Women's Cricket getting more mainstream than it ever was, be it through World Cup or domestic T20 competitions like The Hundred. Women's National Cricket League too grabbed a good number of eyeballs and now that is coming to its conclusion, the finale is expected to be an exciting affair.
After a long hard tussle, the final of the tournament is to be played between Tasmania Tigers Women and South Australia Redbacks Women in a match that is to be played at the Bellerive Oval, Hobart on 26th March 2022. These were the two best sides in the group stage and should make up for an exciting contest. Definitely, something not to be missed out.
TAW vs SAS Team Previews
Tasmanian Tigers Women
Having lost just one match in the entire season, Tasmania Tigers were certainly the best side in the group stage and the numbers suggest that too. They finished at the top of the ladder with 31 points to their name, coming on the back of seven wins from eight matches. Not only that, they had a pretty good net run rate of 0.511, which although is no longer going to be any value now.
It's been over a week since Tasmania Women last played a match but the good thing is that they scored a massive win in that one. Chasing a total of just 130, they were fluent right from the word go and overhauled the total with seven wickets in hands and 113 balls to spare. In fact, it's been an eternity since they last lost a match and with the momentum they have, they will certainly be brimming with confidence.
On paper, Tasmania Tigers Women have a side as good as any. Even Australia Women's World Cup campaign has not had a big impact on their lineup that still oozes classes. The likes of Rachel Priest, Elysse Villani, Naomi Stalenberg, Molly Strano, and Sarah Coyte add to their experience. Apart from them as well, they have a pool full of well-talented players. All the Tigers Women will need to do going forward is to play as they have been and if they can do that, getting past them could prove to be very difficult.

South Australian Scorpions Women
South Australia Redbacks Women may not have been as fluent as the Tasmanian Women in the build-up to the finale, they have been pretty good. They are a truly capable side and that is apparent by the fact that they finished second on the points table, just a point clear of New South Wales Women, Queensland Women, and ACT Meteor Women. They finished with 23 points to their name coupled with a net run rate of 0.455.
Coincidentally, South Australia Redbacks Women too are coming off a win over Victoria Women and will be looking to continue to carry on with the momentum. They were superb in both departments as they first set up a towering total of 264 and then went on to defend that with considerable ease. Eventually, they won the match by a massive margin of 125 runs.
South Australia Redbacks Women have a terrific side on paper that has just been a tad to inconsistent so far. It is high time that they perform to their peak potential as nothing less would do against high-flying Tasmanian Tigers Women in a match that matters the most. If they are able to do that, it would actually not be surprising if they do manage to lift the coveted trophy.

TAW vs SAS Betting Tips
While Tasmanian Tigers Women have been a better side in the tournament on all accounts, South Australia Redbacks Women certainly can't be taken lightly, especially given the kind of win they posted in their most recent encounter. On paper, Tasmanian Women have a slightly better side and they have proved their potential with a string of back-to-back wins. Considering that and the form they have been in, a bet on Tasmania Women winning the final and the trophy should be the way to go here.
