When and where:
Western Storm will take on Loughborough Lightning in a game played in the Women’s Cricket Super League, on (July 29) at The Cooper Associates County Ground, Taunton.
Western Storm are the defending champions of this tournament. They have had a stuttering start to the campaign. The spine of the team has been retained for this season as well, and the management will be hoping that the normal service resumes sooner rather than later. Indian batswoman Smriti Mandhana is one of the marquee players in the team, a lot is expected from her.
Their opponents in Loughborough Lightning have won both of their games till now. The bowling department has been their biggest strength. However, their batting line up hasn’t been tested to its true potential. This can be a problem for the team if the bowlers have an off day. But, the philosophy of ‘if isn’t broken why fix it?’, has been adopted by the coaching staff, and clearly, it has resulted in some good results.
The match will begin at 4:30 PM IST.
