London Spirits too won their inaugural game against Birmingham Phoenix by chasing down 128 runs successfully in 96 balls. Opener Naomi Dattani (34 runs), the skipper Heather Knight (21 runs), and the middle-order batter Deepti Sharma (28 runs) were instrumental in the team’s success.

Oval Invincibles started their campaign in The Hundred with a thriller, as they defeated Manchester Originals by five wickets, and just two balls remaining. Their captain Dane van Niekerk shone by hitting 56 off just 42 balls, which proved crucial in the end. She was also supported by the all-rounder Marizanne Kapp (38 runs and 2 wickets). They reach the Lord’s with full of confidence to play London Spirits.

London Spirit Women Preview

For London Spirit, the opener Naomi Dattani’s sparkling innings of 34 runs from just 19 balls against Birmingham Phoenix in the first match set the stage for their first success in the tournament. Their strong and reliable captain Heather Knight too played a handy inning of 21 off 17 which included 3 boundaries. Deepti Sharma too played her role with her stable 28 runs from 24 balls. While bowling first, the London Women team did a good job by restricting the hosts to 128. Deandra Dottin (2 wickets from her two sets i.e. 20 balls) was the top bowler, while Deepti Sharma, Freya Davies, Charlotte Dean and Heather Knight took one wicket each. 

Coach Trevor Griffin’s Women team looks well balanced composed. The first victory, that too in an away game is surely a big boost for the side before playing at home against Oval Invincibles.

Key Players: Heather Knight, Deepti Sharma, Naomi Dattani

London Spirit Women Predicted Playing XI:

Heather Knight (c), Susie Rowe, Deandra Dottin, Deepti Sharma, Chloe Tryon, Amara Carr (wk), Freya Davies, Danielle Gibson, Charlotte Dean, Sophie Munro, Naomi Dattani

Oval Invincibles Women Preview

Oval Invincibles, just like London Spirit, won their first game of the tournament against Manchester Originals. The credit of their thriller win goes to the captain Dane van Niekerk for her unbeaten half-century. The Invincibles were once in a danger after 3 down for just 12 runs while chasing the target of 136, but they eventually recovered and succeded in the run-chase with just two balls to spare. Marizanne Kapp too played a superb knock of 38 off 27 balls before getting stumped out. Both, Kapp and van Niekerk made a strong partnership of 73 runs. 

While bowling first, Invincibles proved a bit expensive, giving away 59 runs in the first 48 balls even after Kapp took the first wicket in the seventh ball. Kapp took overall 2 wickets and conceded just 20 runs from 20 balls. Natasha (Tash) Farrant was the most successful bowler with 3 wickets. Mady Villiers took just 1 wicket, but her six was vital in the run-chase which was sealed just two balls before the end of their hundred balls.

Key Players: Dane van Niekerk, Marizanne Kapp, Natasha (Tash) Farrant

Oval Invincibles Women Predicted Playing XI:

Dane van Niekerk (c), Georgia Adams, Alice Capsey, Fran Wilson, Marizanne Kapp, Sarah Bryce (wk), Natasha (Tash) Farrant, Mady Villiers, Grace Gibbs, Shabnim Ismail, Danielle Gregory

Venue Details

The venue for this match is Lord’s, London having a capacity of 30,000. Lord’s is also known as the home of Cricket, and it is named after its founder, Thomas Lord.

Toss: To Bowl

Lord’s hosted 10 T20 games so far, from which 10 times the teams batting first have won, and 3 times the chasing teams succeeded.  The average first and second innings scores are 157 and 135 respectively. The highest score chased here is 163. It is recommended to bowl first after winning the toss.

Both the sides appear for their second match of the tournament, also both the teams won their first game and earned two points each. It’s also a coincidence that both the teams won in run-chases. London Spirit’s top and middle order performed better than Oval Invincibles’ top-order, and London’s win was more because of collective efforts by various team members. Both the teams look good and on a day any of these teams can win. However, considering the home venue advantage, London Spirits can seal the deal.
 

We predict Oval Invincibles Women will defeat London Spirit Women.
