LSW vs BIPW Team Previews
London Spirit Women
The London Spirit Women's team will clash against Birmingham Phoenix Women in the 22nd game of The Hundred for women for 2022. This match will be played at Lord's cricket ground in London on 30th August. London Spirit is out of the competition already with just a single victory to their credit from 5 matches. It is tough to visualize the London spirit bouncing back after a recent debacle against Oval Invincibles. They received a nine-wicket-thumping loss from the Invincibles. At one stage they were 4-3 in the space of 11 balls of the game.
London Spirit could manage a paltry total of 81 runs on Saturday and their opposition chased it with ease with more than 40 balls to spare. Spirit has nothing but pride to play for as they are situated at the bottom of the table. The Aussie opener Beth Mooney had a good season though and will be looking to sign off the season with style. In the last 3 innings she played in the Commonwealth Games, she scored 70, 36, and 61 runs. She has also scored a couple of half-centuries for London Spirit in 2022. This includes an incredible 97 not out against the Southern Brave.
Beth Mooney has been widely regarded as one of the finest players to have played women's cricket. She has an enviable record in the A grade matches. She has a batting average of 37.42 and she has hit 4 hundreds and 51 half centuries in her time. This is not to include the numerous significant innings she has played for her team's cause. She is the higher run-getter in the history of Big Bash for women and has made a mark in the women's Hundred as well. In her last 4 outings, she has scored 97, 30, 13, and 61. She is scoring at an average of 49 during this season.

Birmingham Phoenix Women
In contradiction to the London Spirit women’s team, Birmingham Phoenix women's team has so far managed to win 3 games from the 5 they have played. Although London Spirit is out of the competition, this game is a perfect opportunity for Birmingham Phoenix to improve their position in the points tally and try for a direct entry into the finals. The final for women's Hundred, 2022 is slated for this Sunday. The men's Hundred is going on simultaneously with the women's event and even though the Phoenix men have little hope of making it to the playoffs, the Phoenix women's team is in a better situation.
One of the Aussie players playing for Birmingham Phoenix is Sophie Molineux. She is a batting all-rounder for the women's outfit. When Phoenix women took on Manchester Originals in a game on Sunday, the all-rounder was picked up early as she came into bat at the number 5 position. During this defeat, the Phoenix team slipped to a terrible position quickly being reduced to 22 for 5. However, Molineux started off the season for Phoenix well scoring 29 not out against Welsh Fire women and then hitting 24 from 13 balls against the Northern Superchargers.
Another player that has done well for the Birmingham Phoenix during this season is Emily Arlott. Her bowling figures in the last few matches go like 3-19, 1-30, 1-8, and 2-17. She has been among wickets in her last 4 appearances for Birmingham Phoenix. She is expected to be the top bowler for Phoenix again. Arlott has also contributed to the Phoenix totals by scoring small cameos and putting together totals such as 12, 15, and 14 runs. She might contribute in this match as well with the bat.

LSW vs BIPW Betting Tips
The women's team of London Spirit defeated Birmingham Phoenix by a margin of 3 wickets on the only other occasion they clashed in The Hundred for women. But London Spirit Women have succeeded in winning just a single match in The Hundred for women this season. Birmingham Phoenix is doing a far better job at the moment with 3 victories to their credit. They are certainly in contention for a place in the playoffs and they are our favorites to win this game and consolidate their position in the points tally.
Bonus Cricket Bets
Even though 100-ball cricket is one of the shortest formats of cricket, you may bet on the team batting first to push the first ball of the innings for a single.
Beth Mooney is one of the few players for London Spirit that is in good nick. You can pretty much expect her to emerge as the top run-getter for Spirit.
Amy Jones is a consistent performer for Phoenix and she has done an incredible job for her team this season. You can bet on her to emerge as the top scorer for Birmingham.
