History

Since 1930, Australian domestic women’s cricket teams have contested 79 titles. Of these Victoria has won 41, NSW 32, South Australia 6 and Western Australia 1.

Women’s national championships played over a two-week ‘carnival’ were first held in 1930-31.

From the 1996-97 season the format changed, and the Women’s National Cricket League (WNCL) was established. With this change the competition introduced a home and away league concluding with a finals series. Season 2002-03 marked the VicSpirit’s first WNCL title. They followed this with another title in 2004-05.

In season 2015-16, the inaugural Women’s Big Bash League (WBBL) begun, with Victoria fielding two sides, the Melbourne Stars and Melbourne Renegades. The VicSpirit continued to play in the WNCL, but the WT20 competition was dissolved.

Victoria has had some of Australia’s best female cricketers including, but not limited to Melanie Jones, Cathryn Fitzpatrick, Margret Jennings and Una Paisley. Two Victorians – Meg Lanning and Kristen Beams – currently represent Australia in the Commonwealth Bank Southern Stars squad.
