OVIW vs TRW Team Previews

Oval Invincibles Women

Kapp (138 runs) appears to be the team's batting leader, since she has hit 64 and 30 in her past two games. Winfield-Hill (110) seems in form, but Bates (128) and Capsey (77) need to improve. No one on the squad has ever made over 64 runs in an innings, so there must be a greater sense of urgency.

Kapp's bowling is particularly crucial to the Invincibles, since she has the best figures of (10/111). MacDonald-Gay has 8/125, while Scholfield has 7/132. Right now, Kapp bears a large portion of the bowling strain, but Capsey should be given more of a chance, as she has just 8 overs.

Trent Rockets Women

The Rockets could use a bit more stability, as their last 5 games have been all over the place and just two wins in that time. There was a big victory over the Originals in their last game, so it’s a step in the right direction.

There’s no doubt that the Rockets have a gem in the team with Nat Sciver-Brunt’s batting, as she’s amassed 195 runs for a great average of 48.75. Her 81* in a victory over the Spirit is just one of many amazing performances of her career. Smith has been good with 217 runs and Lee is starting to get there (104 runs) after a pretty slow start this season. However, we’re not impressed with Kaur (63 runs) and the team could really use more aggressive batting from her.

The Rockets bowlers have done well so far, although hardly scaring anyone just yet. Gordon is the best with 8/126, but King (5 wickets) and Smith (4 wickets) could be doing more to help out their team. Smith, especially, has given up 186 runs and has shocking Economy Rate of 9.70.

OVIW vs TRW Toss Prediction

Because the pitch tends to slow down later in the contest, teams will want to bat in the second innings to be able to see the ball better. Any team winning the toss should bowl first, as this is usually the preferred option based on the records.

Pitch and Conditions

The Kennington Oval pitch is usually regarded as very balanced, but for short-over games like the Hundred, it’s typically better to bowl first, as that’s where most of the swing and movement will be. In T20 games, the team batting second has won 39/68 times. The weather is likely to be cloudy but sunny at 25°C. 

OVIW vs TRW Betting Tips

These two teams are very balanced right now according to the Rajabets odds, but right now, we have to trust Nat Sciver-Brunt and believe that she will help lead the Rockets to a must-have win. The fact that Lee is finally scoring runs at a good rate is notable, and Smith has been great all season.

If bowlers like Gordon and King can dismiss Kapp for a very low score, then we’re not sure that the Invincibles will have enough firepower to get through the game. Bates and Capsey haven’t played so well, and Winfield-Hill is sometimes dangerous but the Rockets should handle her batting well enough.

Bet on the Trent Rockets to win.

  1. Bet365


    Trent Rockets Women Top Batter: Nat Sciver-Brunt



Although Smith is scoring rapidly and has 217 total runs, we still trust Nat Sciver-Brunt more right now. She has a better average of 48.75 and is going to be much more composed in this match. She's had a bit of a dip since her 81* effort, but she'll be keen to score big runs here and help her team advance.

  1. Parimatch


    Oval Invincibles Women Top Batter: Marizanne Kapp



Kapp has been very consistent and is the team's most reliable batter with an average of 34.50. Her odds are actually far better than others on the team, despite being the top scorer with 138 runs. She can do real damage and it's a good idea to give her a chance in this match.
