Probable Best Batter of the Match
Sophia Dunkley – Welsh Fire
Sophia Dunkley slammed ten boundaries in her brutal 48-ball 68 against London Spirit, which helped her side attain a solid total in the first innings. She will look to maintain her purple patch and score big in her forthcoming outing against Northern Superchargers.
Probable Best Bowler of the Match
Georgia Wareham – Northern Superchargers
Georgia Wareham proved to be quite impactful with the ball in the previous game as she returned a three-wicket haul. In addition to this, she gave just seven runs in her 20 deliveries at a stunning economy of 0.35. Wareham will look to dent the Welsh Fire batting order and restrict them to a low score in the next meeting.
