Players to watch out:

Emma Lamb

25-year-old batting all-rounder Emma is a great asset to the team. In the tournament so far, she’s been among the wickets as well as runs with three 30+ scores. Lamb will want to keep up with the good work.

Kate Cross

Cross has over 100 wickets in the international setup. Her consistency is backed by her resilience and determination as a player. The Britain star will look to ride on her exceptional performances which she executed in the first two games.

Sophia Dunkley

Swashbuckling opening batter, Dunkley is known for her aggressive stroke play and is a regular to the National side. She’s coming off a recent century and will look to take that in the positive stride.

Freya Davies

A tall, athletic fast bowler, Freya Davies is a quiet challenge to face in the powerplay. She said she was happy to “prove a point and throw my hat in the ring” after career-best figures of 4 for 23 in a T20I in Wellington. Davies will look to restrict the scoring rates with her ability to hit the deck hard.


The pitch at the Stanley Park Ground offers a relatively balanced playing field as the conditions favour both batsmen and bowlers. The quicks, in particular, gain an advantage from the conditions, and a score in the 160s is considered to be a challenging one on this track.


The weather for this encounter is ideal with 17°C and no chance of precipitation. Both teams will be out in the ground feeling comfortable by the chilly breeze.
