Players to watch
She opened the bowling for Angels in the last match against Princess. She picked up 7/1 in two overs and was the most economical bowler in the team. She gave the perfect start to her team with the ball and would be expected to do the same going ahead into the tournament.
Janaki R Ramasamy:
The right-handed middle order batter from Angels starred with the bat as she scored an unbeaten 25 off 23 balls, including two boundaries in her last match against Princess. She came in to bat in the third over and was there in the middle till the end of the innings.
The right-handed opening batter of Lionesses was the only batter to score in double digits in the last match against Queens. She scored 10 runs off 15 balls and was the lone warrior in the fight. Apart from her batting, she is more than a handy right arm medium pace bowler.
The right arm off spinner from Lionesses accounted for 16/2 in two overs and picked up both the wickets in the sixth over of the match against Queens. The wily spinner was the most successful bowler in the team and was rewarded for her consistent lines and lengths.
This will be the fifth match of the tournament at the venue. Out of the four matches that were played till July 5, the teams batting first have won three and the team batting second have won one. The average first innings score is 70 and the average second innings score is 57. Batting has not been that easy, on the other hand, the cloudy conditions have assisted the bowlers.
The weather is expected to be mostly cloudy with a thunderstorm in spots in the afternoon. The temperature can go up to 34 degrees Celsius. As per the forecast, there is 40 percent chance of rain and 94 percent cloud cover. The wind will blow from the west-southwest.
