Cricket Betting Tips and Match Prediction Kia Women's Super League 2019 - Western Storm v Lancashire Thunder
Western Storm v Lancashire Thunder
The sixth match of the Kia Women's Cricket Super League 2019 will be played between Western Storm and Lancashire Thunder at the Cooper Associates County Ground in Taunton.
Lancashire Thunder have not got off to the desired start to their Kia Women's Cricket Super League 2019 campaign as after losing their first match against Southern Vipers by 34 runs, they lost their second game against Southern Stars by eight wickets.
Not only the team has suffered losses in back to back matches, both the defeats have come by big margins and this is what is going to hurt the team harder.
Georgie Boyce and Tahlia McGrath were the leading batters for Lancashire Thunder in the first game, while Alex Hartley and Sofia Ecclestone stood out with the ball.
In their next game against Surrey Stars, Harmanpreet Kaur struck a half-century but none of their bowlers could make an impression.
Western Storm have won their only match of the season against Loughborough Lightning. After some tight bowling from Freya Davies, Clarie Nicholas and Deepti Sharma, Heather Knight, Smriti Mandhana and Fran Wilson were their top batters.
Western Storm have a better balanced team as compared to Lancashire Thunder and are expected to win this game.
Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:
Western Storm- Heather Knight, Fran Wilson, Freya Davies, Rachel Priest, Smriti Mandhana, Deepti Sharma, Danielle Gibson, Sophie Luff, Claire Nicholas, Naomi Dattani, Alex Griffiths
Lancashire Thunder- Georgie Boyce, Sune Luus, Tahlia McGrath, Harmanpreet Kaur, Sophia Dunkley Brown, Emma Lamb, Evelyn Jones, Eleanor Threlkeld, Sophie Ecclestone, Kate Cross, Alex Hartley
