THE TEAM NEWS

TRENT ROCKETS WOMEN

  • A narrow three-wicket defeat at the hands of Birmingham Phoenix last time out has left Trent Rockets in a must win situation here if they are to finish inside the top three.
  • Currently fourth-place on seven points, level with Northern Superchargers but behind on net run-rate, a victory gives them a chance of not only overhauling the Superchargers, but also Oval Invincibles.
  • Following their most recent loss, captain Nat Sciver and the coaching staff have important decisions to make in terms of their team line-up for this one, with players such as Ella Claridge and Michaela Kirk all hoping for an opportunity.

MANCHESTER ORIGINALS WOMEN

  • Manchester Originals sit on five points and cannot qualify for the eliminator stage, having lost four of their seven matches played in the competition so far.
  • However, the Originals did restore some pride back into their campaign by beating Leeds based Northern Superchargers by eight wickets in their most recent fixture.
  • Kate Cross’ side could well give chances to fringe players here, although the likelihood is that they will go with the same side in a bid to finish the tournament strongly.

THE PREDICTION

Trent Rockets know what they have to do heading into this one and cannot afford to fail. Manchester Originals won’t prove the easiest of opposition considering that they are off the back of victory last time out and also have a win over league leaders Southern Brave under their belts. However, the experience of England stars Katherine Brunt and skipper Sciver should play a major part in seeing Trent Rockets through to victory here with home advantage also likely to be a huge factor.
