OVIW vs WFW Team Previews

Oval Invincibles Women

We haven’t had a chance to witness the Invincibles in the Hundred this year, as their first game against the Spirit was abandoned due to bad weather. Nevertheless, they are still the team to beat in 2023, as they are the reigning champions after their close victory in the Final against the Brave.

In what is perhaps a scary outlook for the league, the Invincibles remain largely unchanged from the team that went 5-1 in the season and went on to win the Final.

Talented batters like Bates (232 runs in 2022), Winfield-Hill (219 runs), and Kapp (126 runs) are all back and look in form after recent matches with their respective countries. Allrounder Capsey is a key piece to watch, as she not only took 8 wickets and made 118 runs in the season, but her 62-run partnership with Kapp in the Final was a big part of the victory.

Grey (8 wickets) and Smale (8 wickets) have returned, but also keep an eye on batter Dane van Niekerk, who only played 3, matches last year but is a skilled player.

Welsh Fire Women

Matthews shocked everyone by scoring 65 runs, as she only had 109 for the season last year. That was a big part of the win over the Brave, but she had great support from her teammates, including Beaumont (26), Harris (20), Bryce (21), and Elwiss (28). It’s so much easier to win when everyone simply pulls their weight!

The Fire bowlers did pretty well to limit the Brave to 161 runs in the second innings. Despite Mandhana and Wyatt combining for 137 runs, they prevented the other batters from helping out and the next three combined for only 19 runs. Ismail (0/28) and Davies (0/36) were fairly disappointing, but the Fire had excellent overs from Griffiths (2/26) to really put a stamp on the game.

Pitch and Conditions

In this scenario, batting first is quite advantageous, and most teams score high totals, especially in T20 matches. Although the average score on the ground is between 160 and 170 runs, the highest score is 240 runs. Because there is less bounce on this pitch, batters can more easily predict where the ball will go.

OVIW vs WFW Betting Tips

It’s clear that the Invincibles are the favourite here through the 10Cric odds, and it’s hard to argue them winning. They’ll be more than rested after missing the first game due to bad weather and will come out ready to play. The Fire can be sneakily good, but we think they’ll meet their match against such a tough team like the Invincibles.

The odds aren’t too exciting for the Invincibles to win, but it’s a surer bet and there’s money to make in the player bets.

Bet on the Oval Invincibles to win.

    Oval Invincibles Top Bowler: Eva Grey



Grey was a big part of the Invincibles' success with her 8 wickets last season, and she'll continue this in 2023. There are many great bowlers on this team so it's hard to choose, but the odds are too good to turn down here.

  1. Parimatch


    Oval Invincibles Top Batter: Marizanne Kapp



Kapp was great for the team last season and scored 126 total runs. It's true that Bates and Winfield-Hill can also score a lot, but we really like the odds for Kapp and there's a big return on money. If Bates or Winfield-Hill have a bad game, then it'll be up to Kapp.

  1. Betway


    Welsh Fire Top Batter: Hayley Matthews



Matthews had a fantastic recent game with 65 runs, and she has the ability to take over a match when she's in the zone. The odds are really exciting for her to be the top batter, so while she's batting so well, bet on her while you can.
