Cricket Betting Tips and Match Prediction Kia Women's Cricket Super League 2019 - Loughborough Lightning v Southern Vipers
The fifth match of the Kia Women's Cricket Super League 2019 will be played between Loughborough Lightning and Southern Vipers at Haslegrave Ground in Loughborough.
Loughborough Lightning suffered a massive seven-wicket defeat in their first match against Western Storm. Batting first, the team only managed 125 from their 20 overs. It was England international Amy Ellen Jones who was the top scorer with 65, while Mignon du Preez also contributed 25.
But with little support from other batters, the team score was not big enough to challenge the star-studded Western Storm batting line-up.
In reply, Western Storm chased down the target with three overs to spare. The Lightning bowlers were not able to eke out periodic wickets. Sarah Glenn was their most effective bowler with two wickets from three overs.
As opposed to Loughborough Lightning, Southern Vipers are coming off a 34-run win in their last match against Lancashire Thunder.
On the back of half-centuries from Daniel Wyatt, Tammy Beaumont and a stroke-field 40 from Stephanie Taylor, Southern Vipers posted 166 runs on the board. Then the likes of Natasha Farrant, Lauren Bell and Daniel Wyatt choked the Lancashire batting line-up to win the game by 34 runs.
With four top-class international players in Tammy Beaumont, Danielle Wyatt, Suzie Bates, Stafanie Taylor forming the core of Southern Vipers, an easy win for them is predicted against Loughborough Lightning.
