THE TEAM NEWS

MANCHESTER ORIGINALS WOMEN

  • Manchester Originals fell to their second successive defeat of the Hundred, after failing to chase down 114 to beat Birmingham Phoenix on a tough pitch for batting, finishing on 93/8.
  • Indian T20i captain Harmanpreet Kaur impressed again with the bat, striking 49 not out, however the domestic players have so far not pulled their weight runs wise, which has to be rectified if they are to succeed going forward.
  • Should the pitch be in a similar state to what the Originals played on this past Sunday, spin-bowlers Sophie Ecclestone, Alex Hartley and all-rounder Emma Lamb will prove hugely important figures here.

NORTHERN SUPERCHARGERS WOMEN

  • Northern Superchargers made it two wins from two in the Hundred last time out, beating Trent Rockets comprehensively by 27 runs to go joint-top of the table.
  • Once again, the star of the show was 20-year-old Jemimah Rodrigues, as the Indian international followed up her 92 not out vs Welsh Fire with 60 against the Rockets and the Northern Superchargers opener will be looking for another big score here.
  • Also shining with the bat in the middle order was dasher Laura Kimmince, who struck England leg-spin bowler Sarah Glenn for five boundaries in five consecutive deliveries.

THE PREDICTION

You can’t help but feel that the wicket of Rodrigues will prove crucial in this match, as she has shown the ability to single handedly take games away from the opposition in this competition so far. The battle between her and teammate Harmanpreet will be an exciting one to witness, however Manchester Originals’ batting must be a cause for concern considering the depth within the Northern Superchargers top order, whose bowling will be confident of running through the home side providing they can dismiss overseas stars Lizelle Lee and Harmanpreet early on. However, whilst the Superchargers are rightly favourites to triumph, the forecast is very poor and rain may ultimately curtail this one before it has a chance to get started.
