The Victoria women's cricket team is the women's representative cricket team for Victoria. They compete in the Women's National Cricket League (WNCL), the premier first-grade domestic competition for female cricketers in Australia.

Victoria has won two WNCL titles and three titles in the defunct Twenty20 Cup. The team's official home ground is the Junction Oval, a boutique cricket-specific ground in St Kilda. In the past the team has played home games at Casey Fields, Camberwell Sports Ground and the Melbourne Cricket Ground.

The team was known as VicSpirit after forming in 1996, though in 2018 Cricket Victoria confirmed it would cease using the name to describe the women's team, and instead simply refer to them as Victoria, in line with similar changes made to the Victorian men's team.[1]
