BIPW vs OVIW Match Preview

The defending champions Oval Invincibles had to endure another loss at the hands of Northern Superchargers in their last game.

They ended up reaching a score of 129 runs for the loss of 5 wickets. Superchargers won the match by a margin of 14 runs. This victory for Superchargers was made possible by the efforts of Phoebe Litchfield and Georgia Wareham.

The South African international bowler Marizzanne Kapp picked up the early wickets of Supercharger's opening batters. Wareham also supported her by picking up a couple of wickets. During their reply, the Oval Invincibles batter Cordelia Griffith did offer a bit of resistance to the Supercharger's bowling attack. She scored a quick 30 from 15 deliveries. But this effort was nowhere close to being enough to get her side to a win. Oval Invincibles women now have to face the uphill task of making it to the playoffs.
