Yorkshire Diamonds: The Diamonds could feel hard done by their three-run defeat against the Vipers, but they will have to gather themselves quickly.
Lauren Winfield, Jemimah Rodrigues, and Hollie Armitage all got starts but failed to convert it into something substantial.
Apart from Beth Langston, all bowlers kept the runs in check with Leigh Kasperek producing a standout spell of 4-0-16-4.
Katherine Brunt may come out of her sabbatical for this one and replace Beth Langston.

Lancashire Thunder: The Thunder’s story this season has been a sorry one, They’ve managed only one tie and lost the other six of the seven games they’ve played.
Harmanpreet Kaur has been the sole warrior with the bat and the likes of Cross, McGrath, Luus, and Lamb have offered close to little or no support.
Bowling department reflects the same story where Ecclestone has picked out ten wickets.
