Women’s Cricket Super League, 2018
Loughborough Lightning vs Southern Vipers, 16th Match
The 16th match of the 2018 Women’s Super League will see Loughborough Lightning will take on Southern Vipers in what is expected to be a riveting clash at Haslegrave Ground on Saturday.
Venue- Haslegrave Ground, Loughborough
Matchday- August 04, Saturday, 07:00 PM IST
Southern Vipers have had an abysmal 2018 campaign thus far having won just one of their five completed encounters. They come into the encounter on the back off a 12-run loss at the hands of Yorkshire Diamonds in the previous game after they failed to chase down 176 set by the Diamonds’. Natasha Farrant (2-44) and Amelia Kerr (2-27) were the spearheads with the bowl for the Vipers’ but apart from Suzie Bates (34) and brisk 20s by Preez (25), McGlashan (21) and Amelia Kerr (26), no one could post a substantial contribution and eventually finished with 9-163; 12 runs adrift of the target.
Their opponents, unlike them, have had an outstanding 2018 campaign thus far, having won four of their five fixtures, and they’ll hope for an encore of their performance against the Vipers’ earlier in the tournament when Devine (3-21) and Linsey Smith (2-18) ran through the batting order to set up a six-wicket win. All-in-all it promised to be a humdinger of an encounter.
