Players to watch
This right-handed opening batter of Scorchers plundered an undefeated 104 off just 49 balls against Dragons in her last match. She smashed 20 boundaries and a six in her match winning innings to help her team chase 158 in just 15.5 overs. She also put together 94 runs for the opening wicket with her partner Bhavisha Devchand.
The right arm medium pace bowler from Scorchers wreaked havoc with the ball in her last outing against the Dragons. She scalped 14/4 in three overs and was the most successful and the most economical bowler for her side. She was the only wicket-taker for her team in that match.
The right-handed opening batter of Dragons muscled 69 runs off 50 balls in her last match against the Typhoons. She hammered six boundaries and a couple of sixes during her blitzkrieg. In the process, she stitched a 59-run partnership with her opening partner Leah Paul.
The all-rounder from Dragons had a good outing with both bat and ball in her last appearance against the Typhoons. Opening the batting, she mustered 20 runs off 21 balls, including three boundaries. With the ball, she claimed 23/3 in four overs, bowling left arm spin and was the pick of the bowlers for her side.
This will be the first match of the tournament at this venue. Expect a hard new wicket that will assist the batters. On the other hand, the bowlers will be required to make good use of the new ball and seek assistance from the cloudy conditions at their disposal.
The weather is expected to see times of sun and clouds. The temperature can go up to 19 degrees Celsius in the day. The expected cloud cover will be 70 percent with 25 percent chance of rain. The wind will blow from the west.
