Organisers are hoping to build on the momentum of girl's cricket in the Wimmera, with a new-look competition in the pipeline.
A fifth team will be introduced to a rebranded Wimmera Girls Cricket League this summer - capitalising on the success of last year's 'Twenty20 World Cup'.
The Stawell Strikers will join two Horsham-based sides, a Wimmera-Mallee team and a Dimboola outfit, who all competed in last year's competition.
Wimmera Girls Cricket League president Tony Caccaviello said the support from players and parents for last year's one-off competition had given the league confidence to expand its horizons.

"It's a huge geographical area that we cover, but we've got a super-engaged group of players, family, friends and coaches," he said.
"We want to build on that by not only hoping to get some more girls playing but focusing pretty heavily on their development."
Last year's competition attracted 35 budding cricketers, with nearly half taking to the sport for the first time.
Mr Caccaviello said it was essential to offer an all-girls environment, where players felt comfortable.
"There are a heap of girls running around in the Horsham Cricket Association, or other local associations in the under-12s and the under-13s age groups. But where do you go after that?" he said.
"You find that they just stop playing. So, (you need to) create that environment where once girls age out, they feel comfortable and safe and are with their friends."
