Match 7 – Yorkshire Diamonds vs Loughborough Lightning
Time- 11:00 AM local time (3:30 PM IST)
Venue – Leeds
Both the teams have not yet registered a win to their name in the tournament so far. While Loughborough Lightning has lost both the games they have played. Yorkshire diamonds have lost the single match they have played in the tournament. Loughborough lightning made a match of the last game came close to winning with their better bowling performance but didn’t have enough steam to cross the line. Batting has been an issue for Loughborough lightning wherein both the matches they have played out their full quota of overs but not scoring enough runs.
Yorkshire Diamonds will be just playing their second game in the tournament and were pretty good with the bowl in their first game. Restricting a team like Surrey Stars to a low total of 130 runs and the almost chasing it down. Better performance with the bat would do good for their team.
Loughborough Lightning would look to win this match at Leeds if they don’t their road to semifinal becomes tough. Yorkshire diamonds would be looking to get things back on track and register their first win of the tournament. This could be a battle of which team bats better, as bowling on either side is a strong suit as they would say.
Head to Head– In the previous 4 encounters both the teams have won two games apiece.
