Trent Rockets Women would be aiming for a place in the Eliminator round as they meet the Birmingham Phoenix Women in the 27th game of The Hundred Women’s Competition 2021. Hosts Rocket Women had to share the points with Oval Invincibles Women in the last game as rains didn’t allow the game to proceed. Birmingham Phoenix Women come here with an important win against Welsh Fire Women.
Trent Rockets Women have looked in good form after a slow start and have won the last three games that have seen results. They have good knowledge of the conditions at home and shall look to take advantage from it. It will be interesting to see if Birmingham Phoenix Women are able to repeat their success from the last game here.
Natalie Sciver would be upset at having seen their last game against the Oval Invincibles Women being washed away by rains. Prior to that the side has won three games in a row and are looking good in the business end of the tournament. They would be playing at home and shall look to make best use of the home conditions.
Rachel Priest and Sammy-Jo-Johnson must deliver at the top as they have been in poor form in the last two games. Their middle order looks good, and runs would be expected from the bats of Natalie Sciver and Katherine Brunt. The side bats deep with good hitters of the ball in Heather Graham, Sarah Glenn and Abbey Freeborn.
Katherine Brunt and Sammy-Jo-Johnson are enjoying good form with the ball and the side would need them to get early breakthroughs.

It was a grand show from Amy Ellen Jones’ team in the last game where they defeated the Welsh Fire Women by 10 wickets. This win has kept the side’s hopes of making it to the Eliminator if other results work in their favor. Jones would be aware of the strengths that Trent Rockets Women have and look for another brilliant performance from her players.
Shafali Verma and Evelyn Jones look in good form after their unbeaten 131 run stand in the last game. The side would like to see a similar start from them in this game. The middle order has failed in most games and runs would be expected from Amy Ellen Jones, Katie Mack and Erin Burns. Gwenan Davies and Georgia Elwiss must do the big hitting toward the end.
Their bowlers haven’t been consistent but did well in the last game. Erin Burns and Kirstie Gordon bowled tight spells and similar show would be expected from them here. Emily Arlott would be confident after her economical bowling. The side would also need Georgia Elwiss and Abtaha Maqsood to do well as they are up against a tough opponent.

The skies over Nottingham would see odd clouds on August 13 and this would make the conditions challenging for the batters. The track has played slow, and batters must stick their ground and rotate the strike on this surface. The side batting first would be happy with a score of 140 runs at this venue.
Trent Bridge, Nottingham is large ground hence batters must rotate the strike to make runs here as there are less opportunities for boundaries. Fast bowlers do get the ball to move on this surface when the ball is new and the slowness on the surface has helped spinners trouble batters.
In the two games that have been played at this venue the sides batting first have won on both occasions. The wicket hasn’t been great for batting but putting up a score has worked in favor so far. The side that wins the toss is likely to take cue from this and opt for batting first.
Birmingham Phoenix Women come here with a big win and their batters looked in great form in the last game. But the side would be under immense pressure to perform here and win the game to make it to the next round. Trent Rockets Women have been consistent in the last three games, and they have better knowledge of the conditions here and this would make them favorites to win the game.
