An unchanged Breezair SA Scorpions side will travel to Sydney today in preparation for their Women’s National Cricket League (WNCL) semi-final against the Konica Minolta Queensland Fire at Bankstown Oval on Friday, 23 January.
Having cemented third spot on the 50-over ladder with an upset win over reigning champions the New South Wales Breakers, the Scorpions will be looking to proceed to the final against either Victoria or New South Wales on Sunday, 25 January and claim what would be South Australia’s first title in 20 years.
Scorpions Coach Andrea McCauley says her side is looking forward to the challenge despite struggling against the Fire earlier in the season.
“There is much anticipation and excitement among the group; whatever the result is, it will be a fantastic experience for the young group,” said McCauley.
“Since we played the Fire in round two the group has had a lot of success and with the win against New South Wales, confidence is extremely high at the moment.
“The group has realised they can compete with the best.”
