ICYMI- 2022-2023 Women's Cricket Preview

The Australian Women’s Cricket 2022-2023 schedule has been released with a few notable changes from last season. Aussie fans will have more opportunity to see our stars with the Women’s National Cricket League (WNCL) fixture extended to 4 additional matches and less international tours compared to the men, putting more emphasis on enhancing women’s domestic cricket.

The international season starts off in July with a T20 Tri Series against Pakistan and Ireland. They then head off to the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham for the inaugural T20 cricket competition for females with their first game against India on the 29th July.

December will see the team travel to India with games yet to be finalised.

The home series starts in September with a full 18 rounds of the WNCL, domestic 50 over tournament. We are looking forward to seeing some new recruits across the representative sides. Who will be the new stand outs this season?

Finally we look forward to a home series against Pakistan with Queensland, NSW and ACT hosting matches from 16 – 29th January.

The international season continues into February where our Aussie World Cup Champs will defend their T20 World Cup title with the 2023 T20 World Cup heading to South Africa.

On a sour note, there will be no Test cricket played in the Australian and Pakistan women’s series. Last season saw a high quality match against England across the 4 days (imagine if we had a full 5 days of test cricket) with many pushing for this to be a reoccurring feature of Australian series.

With the game still growing around the world it has been noted that many countries are not quite up to the standard just yet to play a full Test match. With Women’s cricket growing internationally, the time will come when we will see this as a regular fixture.

This season will also see the changing of the guard with Matthew Mott moving on to coaching as the England Men’s white ball head coach. This leaves great opportunity for interim coach Shelly Nitschke to take the reigns. Seeing Shelly as the interim head coach provides opportunity for the advancement of female professional coaches with this currently lacking throughout our cricketing communities.

Let’s keep supporting our female young people to take on leadership roles within our clubs. Head on over to Women’s Coaching Association for more info on how to support.
