WS vs NOD Match Preview

The Western Storm women did not get off to a good start against Sunrisers in their last match. They were quickly reduced to 18 for 4 in 7 overs. This was mainly due to the initial burst by Kate Coppack from Sunrisers. She picked up 3 crucial wickets and ended the game on figures of 6-1-26-3. She even bowled a maiden over in the game. Emma Corney however, held on to score 34 runs from 82 balls with 3 fours. But she received little to no support from the other end. The second-highest total in the Storm innings came from extras.

Nicole Harvey also scored 25 runs from 37 balls with 2 fours. This Western Storm collapse was triggered by the Sunrisers' spinners viz. Jodi Grewcock, Mady Villiers, and Grace Scrivens. They picked up 3,2, and 1 wicket respectively during the Storm innings. Although none of the top and middle-order batters from Sunrisers managed to score more than 30 runs, all of them contributed to the team's cause. As a result, the Sunrisers women managed to reach the target with plenty to spare in the end. Mollie Robbins was the pick of the bowlers for Storm picking up 2 wickets for 23 runs from her 6 overs.

Northern Diamonds played their last game against Southern Vipers and we got to see a terrific game of cricket. Batting first, Southern Vipers raised a decent total of 261 runs for the loss of 8 wickets. The Northern Diamonds team made a great effort to chase the score and got close to it. But they fell short in the end by a margin of 3 runs. They ended on a score of 258 runs for the loss of 5 wickets. Although Southern Vipers lost an early wicket, there was a great partnership between Ella McCaughan and Georgia Adams for the second wicket that realized more than 100 runs.

Lizzie Scott was the top bowler for Southern Vipers picking up 3 wickets for 33 runs from 9 overs. Grace Happ also picked up 4 wickets from her 10 overs although she gave away 46 runs in the process. The only other successful bowler for Northern Diamonds was Phoebe Turner. Unlike Vipers, the Northern Diamonds women made a good start to their innings with Lauren Winfield-Hill and Sterre Kalis putting together over 50 runs for the opening wicket. But the batter that took the Diamonds close to target was their skipper, Hollie Armitage.
