Cricket Betting Tips and Fantasy Cricket Match Predictions: Charlotte Edwards Cup 2021 - Lightning vs South East Stars - June 26
The Charlotte Edwards Cup 2021 match between Lightning and South East Stars will be played at Trent Bridge, Nottingham.
Lightning will be coached by Rob Taylor and led by Kathryn Bryce. The team is part of Group A in the Charlotte Edwards Cup 2021.
Kathryn Bryce will be the most important player for Lightning. The 23-year-old captain and elder of the two Bryce sisters in the Lightning squad, who also captains Scotland Women, opens the bowling, bats at three and has been consistently reliable since joining Lightning in 2019.
All-rounder Lucy Higham provides balance to the side. Part of the Lightning set-up since 2016, off-spinner, middle-order batter and sharp fielder has shown the benefit of that experience with bat and ball in the past two seasons.
South East Stars will be coached by Johann Myburgh and led by Bryony Smith in the absence of Tash Farrant. The team is part of Group A in the Charlotte Edwards Cup 2021.
Bryony Smith will be acting captain with Farrant away on international duty. Both her power-hitting at the top of the order and her off-breaks will be vital to Stars’ hopes of success.
The muscular hitting of Grace Gibbs suits the ‘finisher’ role in the middle order while her medium pace bowling will have greater prominence in the absence of Farrant.
Let's have a look at the squads:
Lightning - Kathryn Bryce (c), Grace Ballinger, Tammy Beaumont, Sarah Bryce, Bethan Ellis, Abbey Freeborn, Kirstie Gordon, Teresa Graves, Yvonne Graves, Nancy Harman, Lucy Higham, Leah Kellogg, Michaela Kirk, Ellie Mitchell, Sophie Munro, Sonia Odedra, Shachi Pai, Alicia Presland
South East Stars - Maxine Blythin, Aylish Cranstone, Phoebe Franklin, Susie Rowe, Kirstie White, Bryony Smith, Sophia Dunkley, Alice Davidson-Richards, Chloe Brewer, Alice Capsey, Amy Gordon, Hannah Jones, Rhianna Southby, Tash Farrant, Megan Belt, Grace Gibbs, Eva Gray, Danielle Gregory, Freya Davies
