The Scorchers, with back-to-back wins in two games, currently lead the three-team points table with a total of 8 points. Following closely behind are the Typhoons, who have secured a win in their only match so far, earning 5 points.
Scorchers – Gaby Lewis (C), Aimee Maguire, Anna Kerrison, Annabel Squires, Christina Coulter Reilly, Ellie McGee, Genevieve Morrissey, Hannah Little, Isabelle McLean, Jane Maguire, Jenny Sparrow, Julie McNally, Lara Maritz, Niamh MacNulty, Shauna Kavanagh (WK), Siúin Woods, Sophie MacMahon, Polly Inglis, Mary-Anne Musonda

Players to watch out:
The 31-year-old Zimbabwean in 32 Twenty20 Internationals (T20Is) has scored 571 runs, including the highest of 60 at an average of 23.79. Musonda has had a good start in the series with scores of 38(25) and 36*(49).
The 21-year-old has featured in 4 T20Is for Ireland but hasn’t had the start she would have wished for in her international cricket. Nevertheless, she’s ticked well in the series figures of 0/15 (3) and 2/6 (4).
The 25-year-old South African batter holds the experience of having featured in the Emerging, U-19, and Senior Women’s teams. Robyn has led the Typhoons’ runs chart with 39 runs in the sides’ only outing.
The 18-year-old Irish all-rounder in 9 T20Is has only struck 4 wickets and will eye a comeback into the team on the back of a healthy Super Series. Georgina has started well with a couple of wickets and will eye to carry her momentum.
The Anglesea Road Cricket Ground in Merrion offers a neutral wicket that pleases both batsmen and bowlers, particularly pacers. Any score in the 140s should be considered a competitive total on this wicket.
With a high chance of rain at 80%, expect potential delays and interruptions throughout the game if the skies do not clear. However, the temperature is expected to be around 13°C, with light winds and a humidity level of 81%.
