After a tough loss to Western Australia, Queenslanders look to kickstart their campaign as they face the Tasmanian Women at the South District Cricket Club in Brisbane. In spite of a balanced side in their possession, Queensland Fire didn’t put up a good score despite a late order surge. While the likes of Sammy Jo-Johnson and Jemma Barsby impressed with the ball, they succumbed to a loss in their opening game. In front of home support, Queensland will consider themselves as the favorites with the Tasmanians also losing their first game in a low-scoring thriller against WA. With both teams looking to overcome this false start, an entertaining game of cricket between two of the most exciting sides in the division awaits.
A decent track is on offer with scores of 220-240 being highly competitive. The pacers should get some help from the surface like the spinners, who will be crucial in the middle overs on Monday.
The weather forecast looks promising with no rain on the cards for the entire duration of the match. Pacers should get additional help from the overlying conditions as both sides look to overcome their false start in the tournament.
Injuries: No injury concerns were reported from either side
