Live Scores and Stats - Women's Hundred - Birmingham Phoenix vs London Spirit - Match 2
Birmingham Phoenix have England internationals Amy Jones and Georgia Elwiss in their side. Their overseas signings are Erin Burns, Katie Mack and Shafali Verma.
Amy Jones and Shafali Verma played a couple of exciting knocks in the recent England vs India series and are the key batters for the side. Verma, in particular, has the ability to set the competition on fire if she gets going.
Ellyse Perry, Sophie Devine and Ashleigh Gardner might have pulled out of the Hundred which has certainly weakened them, but the team still has enough firepower to pull through.
Emily Arlott, Gwenan Davies, Evelyn Jones, Marie Kelly and Issy Wong are their leading domestic England players.
London Spirit will be led by Heather Knight. Their other England internationals are Tammy Beaumont and Freya Davies. The team's overseas signings include Deandra Dottin, Deepti Sharma and Chloe Tryon.
While Knight will provide stability to the team, in Deandra Dottin, Deepti Sharma and Chloe Tryon, London Spirit have perhaps the best all-round combination in the tournament.
Spirit will miss the services of Hannah Jones who has withdrawn from the competition. Amara Carr, Naomi Dattani, Aylish Cranstone and Danielle Gibson are the London players with domestic retainer contracts.
