The right arm speedster from South Africa won the player of the match in her last match for Spirit against Sapphires. She scalped 5-9 in four overs. She bowled well with the new ball.

More than 300 runs were scored in the last match that was played here. The team batting second won the match. The wicket is expected to favour the batters as they will get full value for their shots. On the other hand, bowlers will have to go that extra mile as there is not much in the wicket for them. Only four wickets fell in the last match that was played here.
