Western Australia have announced a 13-player squad for their 2021 Women’s National Cricket League double header against Queensland tomorrow, Saturday 27 February, and Monday 1 March, at Allan Border Field in Brisbane.

The defending champions are coming off a narrow one-run loss to top-of-the-table Tasmania last Friday and will continue their early season road trip with two fixtures against a winless Queensland Fire.

Nicole Bolton was superb in the tight loss to the Tigers, snaring 3-46 with the ball to go with 71 runs in a Player of the Match performance.

Skipper Chloe Piparo has started her campaign with two half centuries at the top of the order and has provided the bedrock of the WA innings in each match.

Ahead of the fixtures, WA Women’s Head Coach Becky Grundy said;

“It was great to finally get our campaign underway last week, our performance improved significantly in the second match and we’ve taken plenty of positives into training this week.

“Taking on the Fire at home is always a great challenge and our group are looking forward to the opportunity.”
