“There’s some tremendously talented players in these two sides so it’s going to be a great match and hopefully an experience they really enjoy on the world-famous MCG.
“We feel the teams are well balanced with a number of WBBL contracted players on each side, whilst Hayley-Silver-Holmes has just come off an outstanding Under 15 National Championships so she’s going to be a player to watch.
“It’s great to have former Australian players Cathryn Fitzpatrick and Julia Price involved in coaching roles alongside VicSpirit and Melbourne Stars coach David Hemp, they all have a wealth a knowledge so it’s a good chance for these players to learn from some of cricket’s leading coaches.”
