Women’s National Cricket League

While lacking the profile of the WBBL, the WNCL is the premier women’s one-day cricket competition in Australia. It’s also the longest form of cricket where domestic players are professionalised, with no women’s first-class competition available.

The 2022-23 season will begin on September 23.

Sheffield Shield history
The Sheffield Shield began with just three teams – New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia – from 1892 to 1926. Queensland were added in 1926, with Western Australia not added until 1947. Tasmania were the final team to join in 1977 while the Sheffield Shield final didn’t come into existence until the 1982-83 season.

From 2018-19, the draw was eradicated as a possible result to decide the premiership, with bonus points brought into the match itself, rather than simply handing the premiership to the minor premiers, so long as the match consisted of more than 270 overs.

One-day cup history
The one-day cup began in 1969-70 with a seven-team knockout. One team from each state and a team from New Zealand who were invited to participate.

New Zealand would remain in the competition until 1975-76 having won three editions, before being left out. A round-robin and final was brought in as the new tournament structure from 1979-80.

In 2013-14, the tournament moved into a carnival format with all matches played at the start of the summer in New South Wales. That has since been expanded to include games in Queensland, Victoria, Tasmania and Western Australia.
