Live Scores and Stats - Northern Diamonds v Thunder CEC T20 2021

Thunder will be coached by Paul Shaw and led by Alex Hartley. The team is part of Group B in the Charlotte Edwards Cup 2021.

Dynamic opening batter and canny off-spinner Emma Lamb has already scored a century for the Thunder in 50-over cricket this summer. Her game looks ideally suited to T20 cricket.

Australia's Piepa Cleary will be available to the team throughout the competition. The overseas seam bowling all-rounder with nearly 50 WBBL appearances for Perth Scorchers Down Under has a steadying influence with ball and bat in a young Thunder side.

Northern Diamonds will be coached by Danielle Hazell and led by Hollie Armitage. The team is part of Group B in the Charlotte Edwards Cup 2021.

Northern Diamonds have Netherlands' Sterre Kalis for the full competition. Sterre was an overseas player last summer, but she now qualifies as a local player via a pre-settled status visa.

Despite the presence of Sterre Kalis, Hollie Armitage and Linsey Smith, leg-spinner Katie Levick is the player to watch out for in the team. Levick is the most prolific bowler in English women’s domestic cricket with 236 wickets.

With bat and ball, the England legend Jenny Gunn continues to shine with little fuss.

Let's have a look at the squads:

Northern Diamonds - Hollie Armitage (c), Katherine Brunt, Ami Campbell, Leah Dobson, Helen Fenby, Phoebe Graham, Jenny Gunn, Bess Heath, Rachel Hopkins, Sterre Kalis, Beth Langston, Katie Levick, Alex MacDonald, Nat Sciver, Rachel Slater, Linsey Smith, Ella Telford, Lauren Winfield-Hill

Thunder - Alex Hartley (c), Georgie Boyce, Natalie Brown, Alice Clarke, Daniella Collins, Kate Cross, Rebecca Duckworth, Alice Dyson, Sophie Ecclestone, Liberty Heap, Laura Jackson, Hannah Jones, Emma Lamb, Daisy Mullan, Olivia Thomas, Ellie Threlkeld, Sophia Turner
