THE TEAM NEWS

OVAL INVINCIBLES WOMEN

  • Oval Invincibles suffered massive frustration last Sunday as they were unable to fulfil a crucial home fixture vs Trent Rockets due to a wet outfield, meaning the two teams were forced to settle for a point apiece.
  • That point saw them move to seven points with two games remaining having already won three and lost two, emphasising the importance of this local derby.
  • The abandoned match against the Rockets will have given both Shabnim Ismael and Marizanne Kapp more time to recover from their respective injuries and both could recover in time to play here.

LONDON SPIRIT WOMEN

  • London Spirit’s hopes of finishing inside the top three are still firmly intact following a tight five-wicket victory over bottom-placed Manchester Originals last time out.
  • Chasing 128 for the win, Heather Knight’s side reached their target with just two deliveries remaining as overseas player Deepti Sharma played a crucial knock of 34 not out to see her side home.
  • Bowler Freya Davies was absent for the Spirit against the Originals and Knight will be desperately hoping that the spearhead of her quicker bowling attack will be available to play in this one.

THE PREDICTION

The last time these two sides locked horns, Oval Invincibles emerged as fairly comfortable winners and will need to put in a similarly strong performance with London Spirit buoyed by their recent triumph over the Originals. However, much will depend on the status of Davies for the visitors. If the 25-year-old fast bowler does not feature at the Kia Oval, then it doesn’t bode well for Heather Knight’s team as they would look very light in the bowling department against the side who accumulated 132 runs against them at Lord’s. Be sure to wait for the announcement of the team line-ups before making any moves here, but in what will likely prove a tight affair it’s the Oval Invincibles who may just have the edge.
