Date- August 10, 2019, Saturday.
Match 6 – Lancashire Thunders v/s Western Storm.
Time- 3:00 PM local time (7:30 PM IST)
Venue – Taunton
The Lancashire Thunders will play against Western Storm on Saturday at Taunton. Lancashire Thunders have lost both matches they have played so far. Getting beaten comprehensively both the times. In their last game, the Thunders just couldn’t get going while setting a target for Surrey Stars and could just manage 120 in their full quota of 20 overs. Harmanpreet Kaur managed to score an unbeaten 58 but wickets kept falling from the other end, which meant she had very little choice but to hold her end. Surrey Stars chased down the target inside 15 overs.
Western Storm has just played 1 game so far in the tournament winning it comfortably and would be confident going against the Lancashire Thunders. We would see 3 Indian players playing the match Smriti Mandhana and Deepti Sharma would be playing against Harmanpreet Kaur.
Head to Head – In the previous 4 encounters, Western Storms have beaten Lancashire Thunders in all the encounters. Going by the past records and current team form, Western Storm is most likely to win the game, but it wouldn’t have been called cricket if it didn’t spring a few surprises.
