The 22-year-old pacer in 9 Twenty20 Internationals (T20Is) has struck 12 times and sent down her spells at an economy rate of 6.23 and has got the best of 4/12. In 3 outings this season, Lauren has bagged 6 scalps at an economy rate of 6.75.
The 25-year-old batter in 12 international outings across formats has left a lasting impression. Emma in 5 innings has scored 196 runs at a strike rate of 141.01 and has got the best of 63. Not just that, Emma has also struck 4 wickets in as many outings.
The 29-year-old spinner is vastly experienced having placed across 3 English teams, but is yet to make her international debut for the senior side. Nevertheless, Fi has had a brilliant campaign scoring 173 runs and bagging 7 wickets in 7 outings.
The 22 yards at the venue make a well-balanced center wicket, providing a fair contest between bat and ball. The pitch offers assistance to both spinners and pacers, while also favoring the batsmen, resulting in an average score in the 140s.
It will be a pleasant day to be at the County Ground, Worcester for some cricket, with partly cloudy skies and a low chance of rain. The temperature is forecasted to be around 26°C, with light winds and humidity of 62%.
