Shafali Verma will be one of the players to watch out for.
After a cracking start at the Oval, the Women’s 100-ball League of England will see the Birmingham Phoenix taking on London Spirit. This match will be the first match for both these teams in this new tournament.
Birmingham have some really talented players and the addition of Indian star player Shafali Verma have given them a great boost in terms of their batting unit, which already had the supremely talented Amy Jones. On the other hand, London Spirit looks like a better side on the day, in terms of experience, given the presence of players like Tammy Beaumont, Heather Knight and Deandra Dottin.
