TRW vs SBW Match Preview

The Trent Rockets team will be going into this game under the leadership of Nat Sciver-Brunt. The team will be keen to improve their performance further this year in comparison with last year. In the 2023 season, they were knocked out in the eliminator. It appears that they have collected a good set of players this year. They will be fancying their chances in this match. The two leading batswomen for Trent Rockets this year will be Nat Sciver-Brunt and the Indian skipper Harmanpreet Kaur. Another crucial batter for Southern Brave women is the South African Lizelle Lee. She will look to attack the bowling right from the word go as usual.

The Trent Rockets team has several bowling alternatives to their credit. They can use the services of left-arm spinner Kirstie Gordon and Katherine Sciver-Brunt who is a British international cricketer. Harmanpreet Singh can also pose problems for the batswomen and so will the 18-year-old spinner Josie Groves. The Trent Rockets women succeeded in winning 2 out of their last 4 matches in the competition last year. Southern Brave women had a strong campaign last year but ended on the losing side in the finals.

After defeating the Trent Rockets team last year in the eliminator round, it was a heartbreak for the Southern Brave women in the finals. They were convincingly defeated in the finals by the team of Oval Invincibles by a margin of 5 wickets. The Southern Brave side will be led by the experienced Anya Shrubsole in this year's edition of Women's Hundred. The key batters for the Southern Brave team will be the Indian star Smriti Mandhana and the England international Danni Wyatt. This pair is expected to open the innings in this match.

The one-down position for Southern Brave women will be manned by Georgia Adams. She had a good outing in the Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy while playing for Southern Vipers. It is expected that Anya Shrubsole will open the bowling attack in this match together with Lauren Bell who picked up 11 wickets in the tournament last year. But the top wicket-taker for Southern Brave was Amanda Wellington. She will not participate in the team this year. She collected a haul of 17 wickets last year.
