The 22nd match of the Women's Cricket Super League will have Yorkshire Diamonds take on Southern Vipers in what is going to be a fascinating encounter on Wednesday.
Yorkshire Diamonds are coming off a strong win in the last game, and finally showed up when it was required. Every single player in the team clicked, and this might be the perfect chance for them to salvage any sort of pride.
Meanwhile, Southern Vipers faced a loss, and now are looking to bounce back as well. They do have a solid squad at their disposal, and winning some of the rest of the games will not be a problem for this franchise.
Southern Vipers vs Yorkshire Diamonds
August 21, 11:00 PM (IST)
The Rose Bowl, Southampton, England
Yorkshire Diamonds Squad: Alyssa Healy, Katherine Brunt, Lauren Winfield (c), Beth Langston, Leigh Kasperek, Linsey Smith, Cordelia Griffith, Hollie Armitage, Alice Davidson Richards, Katie Levick, Katie George, Jemimah Rodrigues, Helen Fenby, Bess Heath, Georgia Davis
Southern Vipers Squad: Danielle Wyatt, Suzie Bates, Tammy Beaumont (c & wk), Stafanie Taylor, Maia Bouchier, Marie Kelly, Fi Morris, Paige Scholfield, Natasha Farrant, Amanda Wellington, Lauren Bell Thea Brookes, Carla Rudd, Isabelle Wong, Charlotte Dean
The management has named a 15-woman squad for this tournament, and they have played 6 games so far with no injuries.
Englishwoman Lauren Winfield is the captain of the side.
Alyssa Healy is the opener as well as the wicketkeeper for the side.
There is no significant new so far for the franchise, and the 15-woman squad was named before the start of the tournament.
Wicketkeeper batsman Tammy Beaumont is the skipper and will be looking lead this lineup.
Team 1: Yorkshire Diamonds win
Wicket-keeper: A Healy
Batsmen: L Winfield, H Armitage, J Rodrigues, D Wyatt
All-rounders: S Taylor
Bowlers: K George, L Smith, K Levick, F Morris, A Wellington
Team 2: Southern Vipers win
Wicket-keeper: A Healy, T Beaumont
Batsmen: H Amritage, D Wyatt, S Bates, M Boucher
All-rounders: S Taylor
Bowlers: K George, L Smith, F Morris, A Wellington
Team 3: Balanced team comprising the strength of both teams
The logic that can be used here is that we will be going for a 6:5 ratio for either side's favour. We need to take both the wicket keepers and have a solid batting lineup. S Taylor is the only known all-rounder from either side, and she cannot be dropped. In bowling a 2:2 ratio can be easily taken as well.
