The results are in from the player survey for the ACA All Star 2018-19 WNCL team.

And for the first time in the history of the award, all seven state and territory teams are represented, demonstrating how hotly-contested this year’s tournament proved to be. 

2018-19 Premiers NSW unsurprisingly had the most representatives with three (Alyssa Healy, Ellyse Perry and Rene Farrell) with Queensland, Western Australia and Tasmania each polling two players.

The ACT and South Australia had one representative, as did Victoria, with their sole representative Meg Lanning also being named captain. Despite only playing four out of the six games, Lanning amassed 290 runs @ 96.67. 

Queenslander Jemma Barsby talked about her inclusion in the ACA WNCL All*Star squad for the second time.  

“It’s pretty special,” she said.

“You do all the hard work in the off season, play some good cricket, and then be recognised by your peers - it really tops of the great year we’ve had for the Fire.”

The WNCL is very popular with players who, despite a busy 2018/19 schedule, continue to call for the 50-over competition to be extended. 

“It's why a lot of players originally started playing – to win the Ruth Preddy.

“It’s a great competition but to be able to play each team twice, then have a semi-final and then a final would really boost the competition,” Barsby said.
