The ACT Aces meet the Border Bullets this Sunday to decide the last remaining place on Finals Day of the inaugural T20 NSW Women’s Regional Bash at the SCG, 21 January.
The Newcastle Blasters, Illawarra Flames and Coffs Coast Chargers have already progressed with the final spot to be decided at Phillip Oval, Canberra.
Sunday’s victor will meet the Illawarra Flames in the Thunder Conference Final, after the South Coast team defeated the Orana Outlaws by 10 wickets two weeks ago.
The Sixers Conference Final matches the Newcastle Blasters against the Coffs Coast Chargers, whose Male and Female teams have both qualified for Regional Bash Finals this season.
Both Conference Finals will be played at the SCG on 21 January followed by the inaugural Grand Final featuring the winners of each conference under lights at the famous ground.
Phillip Oval will host a Men’s and Women’s Regional Bash double header on Sunday when the ACT Aces meet the Border Bullets in both matches, the Women’s match to follow the Men’s fixture.
Basil Sellers Scholars and ACT/NSW Country Under 18 players, leg-spinner Jade Allen and allrounder Isabella Greig will be key for the Aces.
For the Bullets, ACT/NSW Country captain at the Female Under 18 National Championships last season, seam bowler Gabrielle Sutcliffe is a key inclusion along with Bush Breakers player Claire Murray.
The NSW Women’s Regional Bash provides a wonderful opportunity for female cricketers in country areas to showcase their skills. The inaugural tournament is proudly supported by the NSW Government and the ICC T20 World Cup 2020 as one of a range of measures to ensure the T20 World Cup has a lasting positive impact supporting the growth of cricket in NSW.
