SAU-W vs TAS-W Dream11 Match Preview:
The 3rd game of the ongoing Women’s National Cricket League will be played between the South Australia Scorpions and Tasmania Women on February 5th at the EPC Solar Park in Canberra at 4:30 AM IST.
The South Australia Scorpions will be playing their first match of the tournament. They had finished rock-bottom last season, having won just 1 out of their 8 games and thus, will be looking to get off to a good start this time.
The Tasmania Women, on the other hand, will be fresh from their brilliant 20-run win over the ACT Meteors in the 2nd game of the season. They will be hoping that all-rounder Nicola Carey would continue her red-hot form in this fixture too.
SAU-W vs TAS-W Dream11 Prediction:
When these two sides faced-off against each other in one of the games last year, Nicola Carey was yet again the nemesis for the Scorpions. She scored a brilliant 64 with the bat and picked up 2 crucial wickets in helping the Tasmania Women get the better of the Scorpions. Thus the Tasmania Women will be clear favorites to continue their winning start to the season.

Vice-captain: Megan Schutt
