Cricket Betting Tips and Fantasy Cricket Match Predictions: Charlotte Edwards Cup 2021 - Western Storm vs Sunrisers - June 26
The Charlotte Edwards Cup 2021 match between Western Storm and Sunrisers will be played at The Cooper Associates County Ground, Taunton.
Sunrisers will be coached by Trevor Griffin and led by Amara Carr. The team is part of Group B in the Charlotte Edwards Cup 2021.
Sunrisers need someone to stand up and Naomi Dattani has the talent to do so with bat and ball. She has T20 winning pedigree – with Women’s Twenty20 Cup and KSL winner’s medals.
Cordelia Griffith flies under the radar. The batter has had a few starts without going big in the Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy but scored 187 runs across four T20 innings for Middlesex this summer.
Essex captain Kelly Castle has been the surprise package of the Trophy with six wickets and a fifty. Her low skiddy action will be useful in or out the powerplay.
Western Storm will be coached by Mark O'Leary and led by Sophie Luff. The team is part of Group B in the Charlotte Edwards Cup 2021.
Promoted up the order last season, Storm's talismanic captain Sophie Luff emerged from the shadow cast by Heather Knight with a series of big scores. If she fires, Storm will be competitive.
A tidy performer behind the stumps, Nat Wraith's ability to stand up to quick bowling creates pressure, while her clean-hitting renders her a potential match-changer with the bat.
Now a full-time professional cricketer, Academy product Danielle Gibson is ready to accept responsibility for leading the attack in the absence of Anya Shrubsole. Also a more than handy performer with the bat.
Let's have a look at the squads:
Sunrisers - Hayley Brown, Cordelia Griffith, Fran Wilson, Kelly Castle, Naomi Dattani, Jo Gardner, Katie Midwood, Alice MacLeod, Grace Scrivens, Amara Carr, Scarlett Hughes, Mia Rogers, Gayatri Gole, Sonali Patel, Emily Thorpe, Mady Villiers, Katie Wolfe
Western Storm - Sophie Luff, Lauren Parfitt, Heather Knight, Alex Griffiths, Georgia Hennessy, Emma Corney, Niamh Holland, Olivia Churcher, Abbie Whybrow, Nat Wraith, Claire Nicholas, Danielle Gibson, Anya Shrubsole, Fi Morris, Katie George, Emily Edgcombe, Steph Hutchins, Lauren Filer
