THE TEAM NEWS

TRENT ROCKETS WOMEN

  • Trent Rockets were forced to settle for a point at the weekend vs Oval Invincibles as a wet outfield saw their match fail to get underway in London, meaning that they remain just outside of the top three.
  • However, the Rockets are the form side of the women’s Hundred at present, having racked up seven points from their last four games after starting the tournament with two straight defeats.
  • No changes are expected from Nat Sciver’s side as they look to maintain their excellent recent results.

BIRMINGHAM PHOENIX WOMEN

  • Birmingham Phoenix kept themselves in with a chance of finishing in the top three spots after a thumping 10 wicket victory over Welsh Fire at Edgbaston this past Monday, which saw them chase down a target of 128 in just 76 balls.
  • The Phoenix will have been delighted to see their star overseas batter finally come up with a big score as India’s Shafali Verma blasted 76 not out, whilst opening partner Evelyn Jones made 52 in what was a breakout knock for the Warwickshire cricketer.
  • Following a such a commanding performance, the hosts like Trent Rockets are expected to remain unchanged for this one.

THE PREDICTION

Can Birmingham Phoenix prove that the thrashing of Welsh Fire wasn’t just a flash in the pan? That will be the question on everybody’s mind heading into this penultimate Hundred league fixture for both sides. So much depends on Indian superstar Verma at the top of the order for the visitors, because if she fires again with the bat then the Rockets’ bowlers will find it very difficult to contain their opponents’ scoring. However, the experience of players such as Katherine Brunt who dismissed Verma for 0 in the final T20i between England and India earlier in the summer may well prove decisive here and combined with home advantage being in their favour, Trent Rockets should manage to edge out the Phoenix in this one.
