THE TEAM NEWS

WELSH FIRE WOMEN

  • Welsh Fire women were beaten comfortably in their opening game against Northern Superchargers, after their bowling was flayed to all parts by Indian international Jemimah Rodrigues.
  • Sophie Luff’s side could only take four wickets, despite the use of seven bowlers and they will need to increase their potency with the ball if they are to succeed in this match.
  • Wicketkeeper batter Sarah Taylor courted a lot of excitement when she announced her signing with Welsh Fire and despite a score of just 18 in her first match, she’ll be looking to make a big impact on her new home ground.

SOUTHERN BRAVE WOMEN

  • After accruing a score of 133/5 in their last match, Southern Brave made two crucial early breakthroughs, which proved very important as Trent Rockets never recovered, allowing the Brave to utilise scoreboard pressure and ultimately close out a 23-run victory.
  • Not only did England bowler Anya Shrubsole shine with the ball taking four wickets for the loss of just 13 runs, she also had the chance to hit out with the bat, smashing 40 runs from 30 balls, showing how important she is to this Southern Brave side.
  • Despite that important knock, Southern Brave won’t want to rely on Shrubsole once again with the bat here, as top order stars Danni Wyatt, Smriti Mandhana and Sophie Dunkley all failed vs the Rockets and will be looking to accrue their first meaningful scores of the Hundred.

THE PREDICTION

It was a testament to the strength in depth of Southern Brave’s batting order that their top three batters all didn’t register a significant score, yet they still managed to register a significant and ultimately match winning total vs Trent Rockets. Against a Welsh Fire bowling attack that looked light on quality last time out, it would be a surprise if that was to happen again here and on what should be a fairly good pitch for batting, Southern Brave will be confident of either setting a big score or chasing down any target. Combine that with the quality of players such as Shrubsole and Australian Amanda-Jade Wellington with the ball and the visitors have all the tools to come out on top once again in this one.
