Players to watch out for
The right-handed opening batter from the Netherlands who represents Tornadoes starred with the bat in her last outing against Sapphires when she scored a 29-ball 32. She provided a steady start to her team and was there in the middle till the 10th over.
The fast bowler from Pakistan opened the bowling for Tornadoes in her last appearance against Sapphires. She was the pick of the bowlers as she scalped 2-15 in four overs. She bowled well with the new ball as well as at the death.
This Australian batter from Warriors top-scored with an unbeaten 80 off 61 balls in her last match against Falcons. The opening batter hammered 11 boundaries during her entertaining innings.
The star West Indian all-rounder who plays for the Warriors struck a delightful half-century and picked up one wicket. The all-rounder opened the batting and muscled 58 runs off 35 balls to stitch a 90-run opening partnership with Redmayne.
The wicket will test the batters as it appears to be on a slower side. Conversely, the bowlers may enjoy themselves bowling at this venue and can exploit the slowness of the conditions to the full effect.
The weather is expected to be clear and very warm. The average temperature will be around 29 degrees Celsius. There will be no cloud cover and there is no chance of rain. The wind is expected to blow from the east.
