Players to watch out:

Bryony Smith

The 26-year-old all-rounder in the 2023 CE Cup amassed 256 runs from 7 outings, while also scalping 5 wickets, registering bests of 83 and 3/23. Bryony kicked off her 2024 season with a solid 90 and 1/20 in the 50-over games and consistently managed starts in the subsequent games. Come the T20 opener, she departed for 16, but can be banked upon to convert her scores.

Danielle Gregory

The 25-year-old leg-spinner, maintaining an economy rate of 7.06, picked up 7 wickets from 6 games in the CE Cup last summer. Building on her reputation, Danielle has continued to be economical and managed 4 wickets from 6 One Dayers this season. In the T20 opener, she not only returned figures of 1/18 but also chipped in with the bat. She’ll be counted on for the goods.

Emma Lamb

The 26-year-old opening batter accumulated 200 runs from 6 outings in the competition last summer. Emma had a disappointing start to the ’24 season but was shortly back amongst the runs, recording consecutive scores of 38, 44, and 107 in the 50-over games. Continuing the momentum, in the T20 opener, she scored a solid 44* and will be relied upon to lead the scoring.

Fi Morris

The 30-year-old off-spinner, from 8 CE Cup outings last edition, scored 209 runs and also claimed 7 wickets. In the ’24 domestic season, while Fi hasn’t scored many runs, she registered the highest of 89, while managing a few starts, and with the ball, has been economical and taken a few wickets. Her returns in the T20 opener read 1/15, and it’ll be hoped she continues to deliver breakthroughs.

Pitch:

The center strip at the Kent County Cricket Ground is slightly favorable for the batters, with an average score in the 140s. However, the seam and swing conditions also give an advantage to the bowlers, particularly the pacers, promising an engaging contest.
