Match 8 – Southern Vipers v/s Western Storm.
Time- 2:30 PM local time (7:00 PM IST)
Venue – Kennington Oval, London.
The Southern Vipers take on the Western Storm in the 8th match of this tournament, this is going to be one of the most awaited matches of the tournament. Both the teams equally strong and balanced. Southern Vipers have won both their matches, while they won their first game comfortably they were pushed against the wall by the Loughborough Lightning but came out on the winning side, even while they panicked in the middle for a while.
Western storms have had a complete performance so far in the tournament with their all-round performances, it helps when you have quality in form players in the squad. While their opening pair failed to score runs in the last game both Mandhana and Priest would like to make a statement against one of the stronger teams in the tournament.
Head to Head– In the previous 5 encounters, Western Storms have beaten Southern Vipers twice while facing defeats twice. One match ended in no result. This is a marquee match in this tournament, two really strong teams facing each other. Definitely, a match to look forward too.
