SV vs NOD Match Prediction & Betting Tips - Jul 22, 2023

The longest fifty-over tournament, Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy, is just about moving into its second phase, and it couldn’t have been better poised. While there is a gulf between the teams placed in the top half and the bottom half of the ladder, the competition has been intense and the matches have been close. Going forward as well, we expect nothing less.




Up next in the tournament, we have Southern Vipers Women taking on Northern Diamonds Women in what is an important match for both these sides. The two teams are neck and neck on the points table and the winner of this match will move on top of the other one. This is an incentive enough for both sides to come out all guns blazing. 




The match between the two sides is to be played on July 22nd 2023 at the Arundel Castle Cricket Club Ground, Arundel.

Of the last five matches between the two sides, the Vipers have had an upper hand. However, the three wins they registered came way back in 2020 and 2021. More recently though, the Diamonds have done a better job winning both of their recent two matches.

SV vs NOD Team Previews

Southern Vipers

The Vipers have had an iffy kind of tournament so far, winning only three of a total of nine matches. The good thing though is that they are still pretty much in the reckoning and are placed at the fourth spot on the ladder with 17 points to their name. Their net run-rate of 0.045 isn’t too bad either. Having had two of their matches washed out, they can consider themselves to be a tad unlucky. 




They last played about a week ago and a break this long after a close game would have worked wonders for them. In what was a match shortened to 48 overs-a-side by rain, the Vipers had their sights set on chasing a revised target of 238. Despite battling gale-force winds, they managed to secure a thrilling victory with 26 balls to spare, all thanks to some outstanding performances from their players.




Bouchier and Adams proved to be the stars of the Vipers' batting lineup, both making significant contributions. Bouchier posted an impressive 71 runs, while Adams wasn't far behind with a well-played 59. The two formed a crucial partnership of 95 runs for the second wicket, ensuring the Vipers stayed ahead of the required run rate throughout the innings. This victory marked the Vipers' third win in nine outings, elevating them to the fifth position in the table. 




Earlier in the game, Storm had set a formidable total of 230 for 5, with Emma Corney shining with a career-best 69 runs. Fran Wilson and Niamh Holland also played crucial roles, scoring 49 and 44 runs, respectively, to lift their team's total.




However, it was Adams who turned out to be the ultimate all-rounder of the match, not only excelling with the bat but also impressing with the ball. She claimed 2 wickets for 50 runs, while Linsey Smith, another Vipers spinner, chipped in with 2 wickets for 36 runs. Their timely wickets helped restrict Storm's scoring at key moments.






Bowling first was a strategic move for the Vipers, given the looming threat of rain. They executed their chase well, with Bouchier providing a super-charged start by hitting a massive six into the wind. Adams, leading from the front, out-scored her partner and kept the momentum going with some classy shots.




Vipers looked in trouble once Storm dismissing Bouchier, who had set a solid foundation for the Vipers. However, Adams and Emily Windsor ensured the team stayed on course for victory. Although Windsor departed after making a valuable contribution, Freya Kemp's composed innings of 47 runs from 36 balls sealed the deal for the Vipers.




Ultimately, the Vipers emerged victorious, handling the challenges posed by the weather and their opponents with determination and skill. They would need another performance of grit and determination as they look to rise up the ladder. If they can continue to play to their potential here in this match as well, Vipers would be well in business.

Northern Diamonds Women

Similar to the Vipers, Northern Diamonds Women too are just managing to stay in the middle-part of the points table. They are fourth on the ladder, just a place above Vipers, with 19 points to their name. However, they have a poor net run-rate of -0.249, which they would be desperate to improve alongside adding points to their tally. 




They are coming off a loss from their previous match and will want to get back to the winning ways. They have not had any of their matches washed away yet and having won just three matches from a total of nine, their performance can be said to have been subpar. The defending champions have not played like one and will be looking to get things moving as soon as possible. 




In their previous match, which too was a rain-affected fixture that witnessed showers throughout the day, the Diamonds managed to complete the game with just two balls remaining, but failed to get the result go their way. 




Batting first, the Diamonds were in a strong position at 223 for 4 from 34 overs when rain interrupted play at 3.20pm. After the delay, it was the Sparks turn to chase in what was going to be an exciting match. Captain Hollie Armitage led the charge for the Diamonds, scoring a fine 66 off 56 balls, and Bess Heath provided valuable support with an unbeaten 49 off 31 balls. Their partnership of 66 runs for the fourth wicket set the stage for a competitive finish. The Diamonds' innings lost pace as they lost wickets, and the rain further impacted their scoring opportunities.






Despite some late drama with Levick taking key wickets, the Sparks secured their win, making it their fourth consecutive victory. In contrast, the Diamonds suffered their third straight defeat, affecting their title defense and knocking them out of the top three qualifying spots.




Diamonds got off to the best possible start in the season but they have been plundered in their last few matches. They go into this match with three defeats behind them, bouncing from which is not going to be easy. They will need to be at their best to bounce back to the winning ways and towards the top of the table. They are certainly capable of doing so and it is certainly going to be an exciting match.

SV vs NOD Toss Prediction

England is known for incessant rains in this season and Arundel is expected to be the same over the course of next few days. Alongside the spell of showers, we expect a brief period of sunshine. The pitch and conditions are expected to favor fast-bowlers and Duckworth and Lewis method might come into the calculation. Considering that, the captain winning the toss is expected to field first.

Read our guide on toss predictions to learn how we analyze and come up with our tips.

Pitch and Conditions

This is the first of many matches to be played at Arundel and not a lot is known about the surface. What we do know is that it is expected to be a true one - as the others have been. Having said that, there will be plenty for the bowlers as well early in the game. We have seen middling scores right throughout the tournament and we expect nothing different in this match as well. Given the conditions, anything over 250 would be an excellent score batting first. 

SV vs NOD Betting Tips

It is an important match for both these teams as the mid-table battle and the race to the top continues to go more and more intense with every passing match. Diamonds have an excellent side on paper but they have been dismal in their last few matches. Vipers, on the other hand, have played to their strength coming into this game with an impressive win. Given all those factors, we would be placing our money on a Northern Diamonds win. 

Bonus Cricket Bets

  1. 1xBet


    Total Runs - Match - Under 499.5



We haven’t seen many high-scoring matches in the tournament so far and that can be attributed more to the conditions and also a tad to the quality of bowling attacks. Besides, more often than not, rain-shortened games haven’t allowed full fifty overs to be bowled. Expect that trend to be followed in this match as well. Bet on the match total to be less than 500 runs.

  1. 1xBet


    Highest Total Runs - 15 Overs - Northern Diamonds



Diamonds have a terrific top-order that performed brilliantly in the last match. They have experience and skill available and would want to make it count in the power play. Expect them to go all guns blazing in the first fifteen overs. Bet on Northern Diamonds to have the higher total at the end of the power play.

  1. 1xBet


    Best Batter - Northern Diamonds - Lauren Winfield Hill



Lauren Winfield Hill is not only in terrific form but also has plenty of experience up her sleeve. She will hold the key for Diamonds to do well here and we expect her to come good - as she has often done in pressure situations. Bet on Hill to be the best batter from the Diamonds camp.
