Top of the table clash
WS have by far looked the best side and have almost been unbeatable. Except for a couple of matches where they held their nerves to sail through in the last over. They have had only convincing wins. SV is placed 2nd in the table but are 8 points behind the Storm. In all honesty, they have lost only one game and that too to WS. They tied one game and another one was washed out. WS’s top 3 are good as it gets with the highest run-getter in the tournament being part of the 3. They also have an experienced bowling attack with a variety of 6-7 options to choose from. SV’s top 3 is arguably on par with WS if not better. They also have a couple of big hitters in the middle order to finish the innings. Their bowling is the weaker suit.
Both teams should go unchanged as they are coming off of good wins.
The last match that was played here was low scoring. The spinners came into play as the ball got older. The batswomen can score well if they get in.
The highest run-getter in the tournament so far. She has been in a terrific touch. Be it scoring quick runs, anchoring an innings or even finishing innings off, she has done it all.
The Vipers opening batswoman is the 3rd highest run-getter in the tournament, just 30 runs behind Mandana. She also has the highest SR among all batswomen in the top 10 run-getters list. She also scored a terrific 110(60) in her last game.
The all-rounder from the Caribbean provides a great balance to any side with her canny off-spin and big-hitting. She is the only one to feature in the top 10 wicket-takers and run-getters lists. She has got 7 wickets and scored 177 runs so far.
The English medium pacer can win you games on her day. She had an ordinary start to the league but has picked up some form in the last couple of games. She picks up wickets at the top and can strike a few big blows as well.
