Stafanie Taylor is a good captaincy pick for this game.
Southern Brave Women will battle it out against Welsh Fire Women in the Match 25 of the Women’s English 100 Balls League. The two teams have had entirely different campaigns so far, which makes Southern Brave Women firm favourites for this fixture.
With five wins in six games, the Anya Shrubsole-led side are leading the team standings and would like to continue their sensational run in the competition. On the other hand, Welsh Fire Women don’t have much to show for so far. They have won just two of their six games, and are subsequently reeling at the penultimate position in the team standings.
