SBW vs BIPW Team Previews

Southern Brave Women

The Southern Brave women's team will be looking at this game to be a perfect opportunity for solidifying their positions in the points tally. Their opposition in this game Southern Brave women have not managed to win a single match and they are struggling to chase set totals. Despite this problem, the Southern Brave women have their bowling attack in good form and this bowling attack is constantly delivering the goods. If their bowling succeeds in getting early wickets for Tess Flintoff and Sophie Devine, they can get the Birmingham team on the back foot instantly.

Another useful batter for Southern Brave women is the right-handed batter, Georgia Adams. She comes in to bat at number 4 position. She has managed to pick 9 victims from her last 3 games as well. The Southern Brave skipper Anys Shrubsole will be in charge of the bowling attack together with Chloe Tryon and Adams. Chloe Tryon is a bowling all-rounder from South Africa. These three bowlers are the most reliable ones for the Southern Brave women. Lauren Bell might be able to make a difference as she was pretty expensive during her last outing.

Maia Boucher has been batting in the number 3 position and has done an exceptional job there. But she will need more support from the other end in the middle order and also from the openers. Southern Brave Women have Danielle Wyatt and Smriti Mandhana as their opening wicket pair. However, they have not been able to make a significant impact in recent games. But Mandhana managed to score 41 runs from 30 balls in the last contest played by Southern Brave women when they successfully chased a score of 145 runs.

Birmingham Phoenix Women

The Birmingham Phoenix team has played five games thus far in the competition and still are searching for their first win. They lost four of these matches and one game had to be abandoned due to rain. After a crushing defeat at the hands of Manchester Originals women, Birmingham women were quite close to a win in their next match-up. They required 4 runs from the last 3 deliveries but they ended up losing 3 wickets on these last 3 balls of the game as Shabnim Ismail registered a hat trick.

After being in a commanding position with 9 wickets in hand they went down to a 3-run loss. Amy Jones must have been in shock while watching this from the other end. Amy Jones is a key batswoman for Phoenix and bats in the number 3 position for them. She lost her wickets pretty cheaply in her last encounter but the Phoenix captain Evelyn Jones will be expecting her to get her rhythm back and play more significant knocks in the remainder of the competition in their middle order.

Some of the in-form players from this batting order are their opening batters Tess Flintoff and Sophie Devine. However, they are not getting proper support from their middle order. So, this is likely to make them a little wary about playing their shots. You will find several all-rounders in the Phoenix team and as a result, they have a batting line-up that runs deep. If their batting order fires, they are capable of chasing down even larger totals. They have Evelyn Jones and Erin Burns as their finishers playing at numbers 4 and 5. Even Issy Wong can also contribute runs if required.
