NOSW vs WFW Match Preview


The Welsh Fire made an impressive turnaround in the 2023 season, recovering from their previous bottom finishes. Key contributions from England's Tammy Beaumont and Sophia Dunkley, along with former South African seamer Shabnim Ismail, led to the team's five victories this season, surpassing their combined wins from the previous two years.


Tammy Beaumont led the team's run-scoring with 253 runs, including a remarkable 118-run performance in a single match, setting a new competition record. Sophia Dunkley, a recent addition, added 224 runs and formed a strong opening partnership with Beaumont.


On the bowling front, Shabnim Ismail impressed with two instances of taking three wickets in a match, including a memorable hat-trick in a crucial match against Birmingham Phoenix.


The Superchargers, after finishing fifth and sixth in the first two seasons, jumped to second place this term, closely trailing the leaders, Southern Brave, by two points. They won five of their last six group matches, with Marie Kelly's unbeaten 69-run performance and contributions from Kate Cross, Grace Ballinger, and Alice Davidson-Richards securing their victory over the Fire.


Emerging Australian talent Phoebe Litchfield topped the run-scoring charts with 266 runs, while leg-spin bowler Georgia Wareham took 11 wickets. Georgia Adams of the Brave outperformed with 16 wickets.


Among overseas players, Jemimah Rodrigues struggled, while newly called-up England player Bess Heath faced consecutive ducks. Contributions from Armitage, Kelly, and the supporting players were crucial to the Superchargers' success.
