Match 13 – Yorkshire Diamonds v/s Western Storm.
Time- 2:30 PM local time (7:00 PM IST).
Venue – York.
The table-toppers Western Storm takes on the Yorkshire Diamonds at York. Western Storm is the Team to beat in this tournament. Western Storm is a very well balanced squad with experience and youth in the team. The team is well lead by Heather Knight and have won all the games in the tournament so far. The fan following team has is also pretty good as people from India are keen to see their stars in Smriti Mandhana and Deepti Sharma doing well in the tournament.
Yorkshire Diamonds have had a hard time in this tournament winning a solitary game out of three games played by them. There is still a long way to go in this tournament for them, but losing here could put them in a spot of bother from where on they would have to win each of their games to make it to the top 3.
Head to Head– In the previous 4 encounters, Western storm have beaten Yorkshire Diamonds on each occasion
