THE TEAM NEWS

MANCHESTER ORIGINALS WOMEN

  • Manchester Originals secured their first win of the tournament last time out with the help of DLS against league leaders Southern Brave.
  • Whilst chasing a target of 124, the Originals stayed well ahead of the required rate, eventually finishing on 97/1 when rain forced the game to a close with opener Lizelle Lee on 43 not out.
  • Following that victory, it would be a surprise if Kate Cross’ side were to make any changes as they look to build on their winning momentum.

LONDON SPIRIT WOMEN

  • In an extremely close contest with Northern Superchargers, London Spirit managed to edge home by reaching their target of 127 with just two balls remaining, securing a vital two points
  • West Indian overseas star Deandra Dottin was the hero for Heather Knight’s team, hitting an unbeaten half century to help see her side home.
  • The Spirit haven’t reported any injury concerns following the contest and with three points currently separating them from the top three, victory here for them is vital.

THE PREDICTION

Manchester Originals still have a chance of securing one of the top three places come the end of the league phase, however they realistically have to win all three of their remaining games from here on in. However, they were aided by winning a crucial toss vs Southern Brave with bad weather around and the forecast for this one should see a full game played. This bodes well for London Spirit, who contain the stronger middle order and a more consistent bowling unit. Ultimately, the experience of players such as Dottin, Tammy Beaumont and skipper Knight should see London Spirit home in this one.
