Greater Northern Raiders top batters shined under grey skies in the opening Cricket Tasmania Twenty20 trials in Launceston on Saturday.
The intrastate series to be played four more times by the end of year involve four T20 games and three 50-over matches was set up to bridge the gap between playing in the women's Premier League and the WNCL and WBBL.
South Launceston teenage pair Meg Radford and Alice McLauchlan look to waste little time announcing themselves to Cricket Tasmania female pathway coach Sara McGlashan on their NTCA No.2 home ground.
Radford was particularly brutal in the highest score of the double-header, hitting off with 49 off 57 balls before falling to Raiders teammate Rhiane Hack (2-17).

McLauchlan played more of the anchor role in the second game, the 16-year-old compiling 31 off 51 balls in a 45-run partnership after the loss of three early wickets.
Despite both top knocks, their rival sides lost as both Cricket Tasmania Green and Gold drew one rubber each in six and eight-wicket wins.
New Town's Emily Mifsud stood out in each clash, hitting 26 and 42 and taking an economical 2-12 and 0-9.
