THE TEAM NEWS

LONDON SPIRIT WOMEN

  • London Spirit were totally outclassed by Southern Brave this past weekend after being bowled out for just 93, before taking just three wickets themselves as the Brave coasted to their victory target with eight balls to spare.
  • The Spirit have now lost both of their matches played at Lord’s so far in the competition and with only four games to go, are starting to enter must win territory if they wish to reach the knockout stage.
  • Captain Heather Knight may look to tinker with the batting order in a bid to avoid a repeat of Sunday, with West Indian Deandra Dottin potentially being asked to open the batting with Tammy Beaumont, thus dropping Naomi Dattani down the order.

NORTHERN SUPERCHARGERS WOMEN

  • Northern Superchargers remain unbeaten in the women’s Hundred having accrued seven points from a possible eight so far, winning three games with one no result.
  • Their most recent triumph saw them beat Oval Invincibles by four runs as they successfully defended a low total of 109/8, an impressive feat.
  • Alice Davidson-Richards is fast emerging as a star for this Superchargers side and she was in top form last time out, not only scoring 42 runs but also taking two wickets underlining her status as a vital cog in this Superchargers engine.

THE PREDICTION

Make no mistake, London Spirit are capable of causing an upset here, if their batting was to finally show its potential. However, the big pitch at Lord’s have seen the Spirit struggle to hit boundaries with regularity and when you combine that with their fragile bowling attack, it doesn’t bode well for them here. Northern Superchargers however, have established a serious winning formula with plenty of power hitting making up their top order, combined with all bases having been seemingly covered within their bowling unit with fast pace, medium and spin all working well in tandem. It would be a genuine surprise when factoring in the tournament both teams have had so far if Northern Superchargers weren’t to come out on top here.
