Players to watch out:

Sophie Luff

The 29-year-old batter has had a decent run in the 4 One-Day games she’s played to date this season. Sophie, in 4 games, has scored 99 runs, however, in her last couple of outings has managed scores of 24 and 34*. It would be right to expect a big outing from her blade.

Fran Wilson

The 31-year-old, in 23 One-Day International outings, accumulated 468 runs; however, she last played for the national side in 2021. Wilson has had a good season so far, adding 232 runs to her tally in just 6 outings, and she will eye to finish on a high, aiming to make a comeback in the senior English setup.

Amara Carr

The 29-year-old keeper-batter hasn’t had the best of seasons, accumulating only 85 runs in 6 innings. However, Amara has been among runs in her previous couple of outings, scoring 24 and 29* respectively, and will look to capitalize on these starts to finish the season on a high.

The center wicket at the College Ground, Cheltenham, provides a balanced playing surface, catering to both batters and bowlers. The wickets favor batters, ensuring a high-scoring match, with an average score of 241 while also offering opportunities for the pacers to exploit the conditions.


The temperature is forecasted to hover around 17°C, with a humidity level of 78% and light winds. If the skies don’t clear, expect rain delays and interruptions during the early match hours, with showers on the radar which could potentially result in a cut-short game.
