Surrey Stars: It hasn’t been all easy going for the defending champs this season as they currently stand at number 4 in the table, winning two matches in their five outings.
Sarah Taylor and Lizelle Lee have performed consistently at the top as the two have been highest run-scorers for their sides.
Byrony Smith, Natalie Sciver and Mady Villiers have also disappointed in the middle order so far.
All Rounder Dane Van Niekerk has been the standout with the ball with Laura Marsh and Nat Sciver contributing.
Amy Gordon has struggled bitterly for wickets as she has only one to her name all season.
L Lee, BF Smith, SJ Taylor, NR Sciver (c), D van Niekerk, M Kapp, A Cranstone, LA Marsh, MK Villiers, GM Davies, A Gordon.
Yorkshire Diamonds: Just Below the Stars in the table are the Diamonds who’ve managed to win just one of their five games.
Alyssa Healy’s form has been the primary concern for the Diamonds’ team management.
Armitage, Rodrigues and skipper Winfield have all shone in patches, but they have failed to click together as a Unit.
Youngster Helen Fenby has been the standout bowler for the diamonds with five wickets.
AJ Healy, L Winfield (c), HJ Armitage, JI Rodrigues, AN Davidson-Richards, BAM Heath, KL George, BA Langston, LM Kasperek, LCN Smith, KA Levick
Sarah Taylor: The Veteran has gotten starts in all the games she’s played barring one, and her wicket-keeping skills are an additional bonus.
Dane Van Niekerk: The South-African claimed a hattrick in her previous game and has bagged eight wickets over-all.
Jemimah Rodrigues: The young Indian scored 58 runs of 40 balls in her last game.
