The next round of WNCL games kicks off tomorrow in Melbourne and Perth, after an exciting first round of performances back in early October.

And there was none more exciting on the opening weekend than current Australian Captain Rachael Haynes who has surged to the lead of the WNCL Captain's MVP by collecting the full 10 votes in the opening two games.

Haynes plundered 103no against Queensland on October 6, before top scoring with 83 against Victoria two days later. 

ACT's South African import Dane Van Niekerk enjoyed similar success after two rounds, trailing Haynes by two votes on 18. Van Niekerk rescued the Meteors with the bat against Victoria, before taking 3/36 with the ball.

Australian opener Nicole Bolton is also placed on 18 votes, after 125no and 83no respectively.

ACT Meteors' Katie Mack, Victoria Spirit's Sophie Molineux and South Australian Scorpion Sophie Devine all sit back in third on ten votes.
