THE TEAM NEWS

SOUTHERN BRAVE WOMEN

  • Southern Brave got themselves back to winning ways last time out, triumphing over Northern Superchargers by seven wickets in a crucial top of the table clash.
  • The victory was largely thanks to an excellent 50 in just 28 balls by Sophia Dunkley, with the Brave now three points clear at the top of the table after six games played.
  • Apart from the potential rotation of bowlers Tara Norris and Charlotte Taylor, which has been a consistent part of Southern Brave’s team selection over the course of the competition, the rest of the line-up will likely remain the same.

WELSH FIRE WOMEN

  • Welsh Fire had a day to forget on Monday as they were thrashed by Birmingham Phoenix at Edgbaston, leaving them needing to win their final two games to stand any chance of finishing in the top three.
  • After only managing to accrue a score of 127/9 from their 100 balls and a fantastic batting pitch, they failed to take a single wicket as their opponents cruised home in reply with 24 balls spare.
  • Following an abject bowling performance, Welsh Fire have to at least consider shaking their side up here in bid to rectify what was such a poor showing with improvement required with bat, ball and in the field.

THE PREDICTION

The prospects for Welsh Fire in this match do not look good as they face the league leaders who beat them comfortably in the reverse fixture at Sophia Gardens. Confidence must be low following their defeat in Birmingham, whilst Southern Brave have not only been victorious in five of their six games played so far, but also boast a perfect home record. It would be a big shock if that record came to an end here and the individual quality of the hosts along with the big game experience that many of their players contain should see them maintain their usually high standards on the field and comfortably triumph in this one.
