Katie Mack has called on cricket chiefs to throw more weight behind promotion of the women's game as the first standalone WBBL campaign draws to a close.
Mack is looking to play a key role in the Adelaide Strikers' bid for a maiden Twenty20 title in the final against the Brisbane Heat at Allan Border Field on Sunday.
The decider will cap off an historic season which was designed to give the tournament clear air and create its own hype away from the booming men's competition.
But the ACT Meteor admits she has been left wanting a little more in terms of promotion after the Cricket Australia moved the WBBL to its own slot in a crowded calendar.
"There is still an opportunity for more media around it and some extra promotion of the game," Mack said.
"With the men's, we jumped along and we were able to tag in on a lot of their media stuff.
"There's probably an opportunity for them to keep on promoting the women's game a little bit extra now we don't have the men's to jump onto.

"I guess there is only one way to find out if we can make our game grow, and that is to separate from the men's and be able to evaluate it separately."
Cricket Australia and the ICC scheduled the women's Twenty20 World Cup in its own window in February, long before the men's tournament hits our shores.
Perhaps that will be the biggest indicator of how much the game can grow as officials eye the record crowd figure for a women's sporting event at the final, which sits at 90,185 from the 1999 soccer World Cup final.
But far more pressing for Mack right now is the chance to deny the Brisbane Heat a second successive WBBL title in the tournament's fifth edition.
The Strikers booked their ticket to the decider with a comprehensive eight-wicket semi-final win over the Perth Scorchers on Saturday.
Brisbane edged one step closer to back-to-back titles, which would see them draw level with the Sydney Sixers for most WBBL triumphs, with a win over the Melbourne Renegades.
Melbourne's semi-final loss saw Meteors Anna Lanning, Maitlan Brown, Erica Kershaw and Carly Leeson bow out of title contention.
It leaves Mack to fly the flag for the ACT and she is hoping Sunday marks her best outing yet.
"From a cricket perspective, I haven't done quite as much as I would have liked to but Sunday might be the day," Mack said.
"In terms of the set-up they have, coaching staff and team, it's been really good.

"It was definitely time for me to find somewhere new. You could see from outside the group what sort of set-up they have and what it was like to be in the group.
"That pulled me in and I was stoked to come to the Strikers, I was pretty happy that they wanted me to.
"It will be really good. It's my first time even making the finals, so making a grand final is pretty exciting."
Adelaide star Sophie Devine looms as the danger player having jagged two wickets and posting an unbeaten 65 in the semi-final.
"She's been outstanding. Hopefully she has one more game in her," Mack said.
"The difference between her and other girls who have batted really well is she makes sure she finishes the game for us."
