THE TEAM NEWS

NORTHERN SUPERCHARGERS WOMEN

  • After looking like certs to finish in the top three at one stage, Northern Superchargers come into this one on the back of three straight losses knowing that another here would see them eliminated from the competition.
  • Their latest defeat came at the hands of Manchester Originals, who beat them by eight wickets after chasing down a target of 127 in 86 balls.
  • It would be no surprise to see the Superchargers make a number of changes in order to find a winning formula, with the likes of Phoebe Graham, Hollie Armitage and Ami Campbell all options to come into the side.

BIRMINGHAM PHOENIX WOMEN

  • Victory here for Birmingham Phoenix will see them break into the top three, which for most of the tournament had looked extremely unlikely after their poor start.
  • An unlikely three-wicket victory last time out away at Trent Rockets was their second successive triumph with bowler Kirstie Gordon shining by taking three wickets.
  • The Phoenix are not expected to adjust their line-up for this match as they look to stick with a winning formula.

THE PREDICTION

Northern Superchargers need to get back to winning ways here with their tournament on the line. As a batting unit, they have been far too reliant on Indian overseas star Jemimah Rodrigues throughout the tournament and need other players to come to the party. Laura Wolvaardt did so in their last match albeit in a losing effort, but on what should be a good batting track, they will need to find other contributors. Birmingham Phoenix however, are hitting form at just the right time and momentum is a huge factor in cricket. With Northern Superchargers low on confidence and Birmingham Phoenix riding the crest of a wave, backing the visitors to win here looks the smart play.
