THE TEAM NEWS

NORTHERN SUPERCHARGERS WOMEN

  • Northern Superchargers came out the wrong end of their top of the table clash vs Southern Brave last time out, losing by seven wickets in a match reduced due to rain.
  • The Superchargers are still in a strong position in regards to top three qualification and victory in each of their final two fixtures would be enough to get them through.
  • Whilst India’s Jemimah Rodrigues has been in scintillating form with the bat throughout the tournament, captain and fellow opener Lauren Winfield-Hill has struggled but will understandably be persisted with.

MANCHESTER ORIGINALS WOMEN

  • Manchester Originals couldn’t capitalise on their victory over Southern Brave, falling to defeat against London Spirit to all but end any faint hopes they had of qualification for the eliminator match.
  • Their loss came by five wickets in a close contest that saw them accrue 127/5, but fail to defend it as London Spirit snuck home with just two balls remaining.
  • With the Originals’ campaign pretty much done, it would be no surprise if they made a couple of changes and gave some fringe players time on the field, particular if India T20i captain Harmanpreet Kaur remains absent through injury.

THE PREDICTION

For Northern Superchargers, the pressure is on as they look to keep hold of their place in the top three and any complacency must be left in the dressing room here. However, whilst Manchester Originals showed what they could do against Southern Brave they have largely disappointed in the inaugural women’s Hundred with their star bowlers underperforming and their batters simply not accruing the high enough individuals scores to trouble opposition sides consistently. It would be no surprise if this was to occur once again at Emerald Headingley and a crucial victory for the hosts is expected.
