Women’s Cricket Super League, 2018
Loughborough Lightning vs Lancashire Thunder, 22nd Match
The 22nd match of the Women’s Super League will see Loughborough Lightning take on Lancashire Thunder in what is expected to be a riveting encounter on Saturday.
Venue:- Haslegrave Ground, Loughborough
Match Timings:-Saturday, August 11, 2018, 07:00 PM IST
Loughborough Lightning will look to shrug off the blip they’d suffered at the hands of Surrey Stars in what has been a pretty campaign for ’em thus far:- five wins in seven games. They were comprehensively beaten, though, by the Surrey Stars in their previous encounter in a rain-affected game by seven wickets after they failed to defend 101 in 13 overs. Their failure to defend 101 was mainly due to a belligerent 62-run opening stand between Lizelle Lee (48) and Bryony Smith (31). Georgia Elwiss (2-20) was the best bowler for LL and the skipper will hope for an improved performance especially from her bowlers against Lancashire.
Their opponents in Lancashire, too, are coming off a 76-run drubbing at the hands of Western Storm after they failed to chase down 186. Smriti Mandhana (49), Knight (76) and Taylor (51) were the cornerstones for the Storm’s belligerent batting performance and apart from Sophie Ecclestone (2-27), no other bowler could not offer much resistance. On the batting front too, apart from Bolton (21) and Threlkeld (33), no batsmen posted substantial contribution as they were eventually bowled out for 109 in 18.2 overs.
