Cricket Betting Tips and Match Prediction Kia Women's Super League 2019 Final - Western Storm v Southern Vipers
The Final of the Kia Women's Super League 2019 will be played between Western Storm and Southern Vipers at the County Ground in Hove.
Western Storm had been coasting along with nine wins from nine matches but lost their last league match against Yorkshire Diamonds. Although the Storm still have a super impressive record of nine wins and 39 points from 10 matches, a loss at the wrong time can really affect your moment.
The loss came in a match that was curtailed to 10 overs per side due to rain and the Western Storm bowlers conceded 104 runs, notwithstanding Freya Davies' three wickets at a superb economy of 3.5. Despite a 21-ball 45 from Fran Wilson and an 18-ball 31 from Sophie Luff, they just fell short of the target by five runs.
Western Storm will be up against Southern Vipers, who won the semi-final against Loughborough Lightning. In their first match of the season, Western Storm comfortably beat Loughborough Lightning by seven wickets while they beat Southern Vipers by three wickets in the first encounter with them this season.
The second match of the Storm against Loughborough Lightning saw them win, by yet another comprehensive margin of 40 runs , while the second match of Southern Vipers against Western Storm was easily won by the Storm by 15 runs.
Hence, the Storm have beaten both the sides two times each to give them enough confidence of trumping their opponents in the final, irrespective of whether Lightning or Vipers qualified.
Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of the teams:
Western Storm- Rachel Priest, Smriti Mandhana, Heather Knight, Fran Wilson, Sophie Luff, Deepti Sharma, Naomi Dattani, Anya Shrubsole, Freya Davies, Claire Nicholas, Sonia Odedra
Southern Vipers- Tammy Beaumont, Danielle Wyatt, Suzie Bates, Maia Bouchier, Thea Brookes, Amanda Wellington, Paige Scholfield, Fi Morris, Carla Rudd, Natasha Farrant, Isabelle Wong
