WFW vs MOW Match Prediction & Betting Tips - Aug 02, 2023

The Hundred competition is back in England for its 3rd season and its stakes are even higher than before. Considering the cricket played in the last couple of editions of The Hundred for Women this season is all set to become yet another blockbuster. The Welsh Fire women will lock horns with Manchester Originals women in the 2nd game of The Hundred for Women competition for the 2023 season. This game will be played at the venue of Sophia Gardens in Cardiff, England later tomorrow. Let's look at the match prediction, betting tips, and pitch report for this match.

The Welsh Fire women managed just a single win and lost 5 of their games. They had to take a terrible campaign where they ended up right at the bottom of the league points table in 2022. The skipper Tammy Beaumont will be hoping that his team can outclass the Manchester women in this game. The Manchester women also failed to make an impact on The Hundred for Women last year. They did slightly better than Welsh Fire women by winning 2 games out of 6. Manchester Originals also could not make it to the playoffs. The Manchester Originals succeeded in registering a narrow victory over Welsh Fire women last year in a game played at Old Trafford.

WFW vs MOW Team Previews

Welsh Fire Women

As far as the Welsh Fire vatting department is concerned the team will hinge on batters such as Hayley Matthews, Sophia Dunkley, Laura Harris, and the skipper Tammy Beaumont for scoring most of the runs. During the last season, the Welsh skipper Tammy Beaumont displayed great form with the bat for the team of Welsh Fire Women. She collected a haul of 138 runs from the competition with an average of 27.60. As far as the Welsh bowling department is concerned the team will rely on bowlers such as Freya Davies, Alex Hartley, Claire Nicholas, Hayley Matthews, and Shabnim Ismail for providing timely breakthroughs.

Hayley Matthews is one of the more aggressive opening batswomen for Welsh Fire and she belongs to West Indies. Matthews participated in 3 matches last year for Welsh Fire women and succeeded in accumulating 109 runs for her team with an average of 36.33 with a strike rate of 145. Recently she participated in a T20 series against the women's team of Ireland. In her 3 outings during the series, she managed to put together scores of 37, 50, and 48 runs. The Welsh Fire team did not have a good bowling attack last year. Yet one of their bowlers Claire Nicholas did a fine job by picking up 6 wickets from 6 matches with an average of 16.50.

Although Welsh Fire women had to endure a forgettable campaign last year when they ended up in the last position in the points tally, they do have some top-quality players in their ranks. This year all this firepower will be looking to turn around their fortunes by winning some important games. They do have some players of the class of Hayley Matthews, Sophia Dunkley, and Tammy Beaumont on their side. The fact remains that Welsh Fire women have a well-balanced line-up of batswomen this season who are all geared up for an impressive performance.

As far as the Manchester Originals batting department is concerned, they will rely on players such as Laura Wolvaardt, Emma Lamb, Amara Carr, Ami Campbell, and Deandra Dottin to score most of the runs for their side. During the last season, Deandra Dottin displayed terrific form with the bat for the Manchester side. She collected a haul of 147 runs with a strike rate of 181.48. She hit a couple of half-centuries during this period. As far as the Manchester bowling department is concerned the outfit will depend on bowlers such as Sophie Ecclestone, Deandra Dottin, Mahika Gaur, Fi Morris, and Amanda Wellington to pick up vital breakthroughs.

Sophie Ecclestone was the leading wicket-taker for Manchester Originals last year when she picked up 8 wickets with a good economy rate of 7. Deandra Dottin is a top all-rounder from the West Indies and she plays the role of an opening batter for her team. Last season she participated in just 4 games but made a good impression by scoring 147 runs with an average of 73.50. The Manchester Originals also had a pretty much forgettable last season when they struggled to get victories and could not reach the playoff stages.

However, they have some aggressive batswomen in their ranks such as Emma Lamb, Laura Wolvaardt, and Deandra Dottin. So, the team will be keen to make a good impression this season. The Manchester Originals top order batting boasts of players such as Ami Campbell and Laura Wolvaardt. The team also has plenty of useful bowlers such as Sophie Ecclestone, Katie George, Phoebe Graham, Fi Morris, and Amanda Jade Wellington.
