Cricket Betting Tips and Fantasy Cricket Match Predictions: Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy 2020 - South East Stars vs Sunrisers
The 2nd round match of the Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy 2020 will be played between South East Stars and Sunrisers at Beckenham.
Given that half of the South East Stars' batters were already back in the hut with the scorecard reading just 55 runs by the time the 20th over arrived, it is commendable that they did not get skittled out for double figures.
It was a gutsy 47-run partnership between Susie Rowe (38) and Hannah Jones (16) for the sixth wicket which allowed the side to have their toe in the door. Skipper Tash Farrant helped the team total achieve some respectability with a 58-ball 37. With 166 from 48.1 overs, South East Stars still had something which their bowlers could work with.
Sophia Dunkley (1 for 27), Tash Farrant (1 for 29) and Bryony Smith (1 for 11) did try their best but Heather Knight 91* had too much class to be fazed. South East Stars held on till 39.5 overs, finally losing by six wickets.
Mady Villiers (64) and Naomi Dattani (42) resurrected the Sunrisers innings after the team was reduced to 30-3 in the 10th over. More importantly, each of Katie Midwood, Amara Carr and Fran Wilson were back in the pavilion without adding substantial runs and the chances of a collapse were high.
Dattani and Villiers added 92 runs for the fourth-wicket to impart some respectability to Sunrisers' total of 202. That though did not prevent the team from getting bowled out.
All their bowlers, with the exception of Joanne Gardner, kept things tight but failed to defend their total, against the quality of Danielle Wyatt (66) and lost by 7 wickets in 36.2 overs.
Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:
South East Stars - Natasha Farrant (C), Rhianna Southby (W), Alice Capsey, Bryony Smith, Aylish Cranstone, Sophia Dunkley, Alice Davidson-Richards, Susannah Rowe, Hannah Jones, Grace Gibbs, Freya Davies
Sunrisers - Amara Carr (CW), Katie Midwood, Frances Wilson, Naomi Dattani, Mady Villiers, Grace Scrivens, Alice MacLeod, Joanne Gardner, Sonali Patel, Kelly Castle, Katie Wolfe
