OVIW vs LSW Team Previews

Oval Invincibles Women

The Oval Invincibles women will be needed to record a win in this game to maintain their position in the top 4 of the points tally. They have succeeded in securing a single point more than the Manchester Originals women who are in the 5th position. Marizanne Kapp managed to score a superb 64 from 40 balls while playing in the number 4 position in their last contest. She was the batter responsible for taking the team to a score of 142 runs. The Oval Invincibles will be confident about setting a good score in this matchup.

The Oval Invincibles women's team captain Suzie Bates will be a bit concerned about her batting as the opening batswoman. She could manage just nine runs from 14 balls in her last match. She is also not getting runs quickly enough. She is scoring runs below the strike rate of 100 in her last 3 appearances. Another crucial batter playing in the 3rd position is Alice Capsey. She has scored a fifty in her last appearance at this venue. Cordelia Griffith displayed her big-hitting capabilities during the run chase against Northern Superchargers hitting a fast 30 from 15 balls. However, this effort was not sufficient for recording a win.

Oval Invincibles have a lot of potential in their middle order and also in their lower middle order. But the thing they need the most is their consistency in the batting department. The captain also needs to make a comeback while playing at the top of the batting line-up. There is a lot of variety in the Oval Invincibles bowling attack. They can use as many as seven alternatives. This is the main strength of the Oval Invincibles team. Some of the other key bowlers on the team are Marizanne Kapp, Ryana MacDonald, and Paige Scholfield.

London Spirit Women

The winning spirit required for registering victories is lacking in the London Spirit women at the moment. They have some inexperienced and young players in their lineup. It will be difficult to navigate through a good bawling attack like Oval Invincibles. The conditions at the venue are likely to be beneficial to the bowlers. Even the top players are finding it tough to score runs in this season. The Aussie import Grace Harris has also struggled to score runs at the top of their batting line-up. She is the key component of this batting order and will be instrumental in a possible comeback from the Oval Invincibles women's batting charge.

The opening wicket partner for Grace Harris is Danielle Gibson. She has appeared to be promising and has made some significant contributions in both of her matches. Some of the other critical figures in this batting order are Melie Kerr and Heather Knight, especially in the middle order. In case these two batters fail to contribute in the middle order, some useful batters are playing in the lower middle order such as Sophie Munro, Grace Scrivens, and Richa Ghost that need to contribute runs to the London Spirit women.

If London Spirit women bat first in this game, they will have to score at least 140 runs. One of the key bowlers for London Spirit women is Sarah Gless. She will be supported in her endeavor by the bowlers such as Lauren Filer and Charlotte Dean. These bowlers are key components of the London bowling attack. Other bowlers from the team are unlikely to make a big impression in this match and can be considered ad weak links in the bowling attack. The back-to-back losses in their last couple of games might have dented the psyche of London Spirit women a bit.

Pitch and Conditions

This encounter between Oval Invincibles women and London Spirit women will be played at Kennington Oval in London. Both these sides are desperate for a victory to keep their hopes alive in the competition. The average first innings total while batting first in the domestic T20 games is 165 runs. But in the last match, the side batting first managed to put together 128 runs. So, it is gradually becoming difficult to score big runs on this surface. We think a score of 140 runs while batting first should be at par. It can even turn out to be a match-winning total.

This surface is a decent batting track and the batters will be able to time all their shots. However, the fast bowlers will also get some help from the track. It is likely to be a good competition between the bat and the ball due to the sporting nature of the track. The weather during the game is likely to be partly cloudy and you can get temperatures close to 24 degrees for this game.
