LIVE - Southern Vipers vs Lightning

Lightning will be coached by Rob Taylor and led by Kathryn Bryce this year. The team finished Fourth (North Group) in the Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy 2020.

Sarah Bryce (395, 79.00) was the top run scorer for Lightning in 2020 while Kathryn Bryce (14, 15.42) picked up the most wickets in the last edition of the Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy.

Sarah Bryce is the player to watch out for Lightning. The opener passed 50 in all but one of her six innings in last year’s Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy and is already in good form in 2021.

Southern Vipers will be coached by Charlotte Edwards and led by Georgia Adams this year. The team lifted the Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy 2020 trophy.

Georgia Adams (500, 83.33) was the top run scorer for Southern Vipers in 2020 while Charlotte Taylor (15, 10.13) picked up the most wickets in the last edition of the Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy.

Georgia Adams is the player to watch out for Southern Vipers. Adams had the season of her life in 2020 - can she possibly top it this year? As opener and skipper, Vipers’ overall showing will rest largely on her shoulders.

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
