LSW vs TRW Match Preview

In their last game of the season, Trent Rockets threw away almost a certain victory. They lost 5 wickets in the space of 13 deliveries to face a collapse from 102 for 2 to 107 for 7 before ending up on the losing team against the Northern Superchargers. But the opening batswoman Bryony Smith hit 9 boundaries and 3 sixes to score a super 70 from 44 balls. Rockets needed just 43 runs from 35 balls at one stage. However, the Superchargers' spinners Lucy Higham and Linsey Smith turned the game around on its head.

The total scored by Northern Superchargers did not appear to be sufficient as Trent Rockets placed themselves ahead in the game by collecting 33 runs for no wickets in their first 25 deliveries. The Supercharger's opening bowlers provided too much width to Lee and Smith. Although Lee lost her wicket for 16, Smith was well and truly on the way, reaching her fifty in 32 balls. This is her second fifty in the 100-ball format. Rockets required just 33 runs from 25 at a stage but the picture suddenly changed and the next 16 balls saw 5 Trent wickets going down.

The London Spirit women had to endure a loss against Southern Brave women in their last full game of the competition. Maia Bouchier scored an unbeaten and classy fifty to take the Southern Brave women's team to a win. Heather Knight was in good form for London Spirit in their last game. She scored a top 44 from 27 balls. But it was Georgia Adams that shone with the ball for the Southern Braves. The London leg spinner Sarah Glenn kept the Spirit team in the hunt for a victory but a clever innings from Maitlan Brown towards the end secured a win for Southern Brave.

The London Spirit team is currently positioned in the 6th spot in the women's Hundred competition points table for the 2023 season. They have had to endure one loss from 3 matches in the league. The 2 other matches of the league ended up with no result for the team. They have 2 points at the moment. Heather Knight was the leading run-getter for London Spirit scoring 44 runs with a strike rate of 162 while hitting 7 fours in the process. Danielle Gibson also scored 28 runs with a strike rate of 140. Sarah Glenn was the pick of the bowlers for London Spirit picking up 3 wickets while bowling with an excellent strike rate of 3.75.

Pitch Report

This game between London Spirit women and Trent Rockets women will be played at the historic venue of the Lords. Both these teams will be keen to record the first victory of the season. Lords is the home for cricket and a terrific venue for both batswomen and bowlers. If there are overcast conditions, all seamers will get help from the track, especially with the new ball. Any team while batting first will be aiming for a score over 140 runs to be in a good position.

The wicket on offer at the Lord's is usually a batting-friendly one. However, it does offer help to the fast bowlers, especially the swing bowlers.

Dream11 Prediction

Although the London Spirit women will have a home-turf advantage, their batting order does not look promising. The Trent Rockets women have been expensive with their bowling. They will be looking to bounce back with more effort. Although the Rockets had to endure a collapse in their last match, they have a terrific batting line-up and you can expect them to have an edge while going into this contest.
