NOD vs WS Team Previews

Northern Diamonds Women

Northern Diamonds have undoubtedly been the best side of the group up until now, but that can change pretty quickly if they are not careful enough going into the business end of the tournament. They have lost just one match from a total of four played and will be looking to inch a step closer to progression with a win here in this upcoming match.

The Diamonds are coming off a superb win over Sunrisers in a low-scoring match wherein the Diamonds managed to defend a total of 120. It was an incredible piece of bowling by their stalwarts as they kept Sunrisers at bay. While batsmen have been a little inconsistent in the competition thus far, their bowlers have been brilliant. We saw their bowlers step up their game in their previous meeting against Western Storm as well.

Northern Diamonds are coming into this match on the back of a three-match winning streak and will be brimming with confidence. Although they are capable of doing more than they have up until now, they will be fairly satisfied with the way they have bounced back after facing a narrow defeat in their opening contest. Batting has looked to be their weak point up until now and if their batsmen can step up, Northern Diamonds will be a hard side to get past.

Western Storm

Western Storm are currently tied with Thunder on the points table for the second spot and will want to go up with a win here in this upcoming match. Up until now in the four matches, they have blown hot and cold, winning two and losing two. However, they still have a decent net run rate of 0.147 that can come in handy if things get tight towards the end of the league stage.

Western Storm are coming off a terrific win over Thunder in a high-pressure game and that should have boosted their confidence massively. Bowling first, they kept a rather potent batting unit of Thunder down to a total of just 100, which they then chased with considerable ease. Katie George proved to be their match-winner as far as batting went.

As much good the last performance was for Western Storm, they have failed to perform consistently. Their bowlers and batsmen have both blown hot and cold and that could be an issue going into the business end of the tournament. If they can put that behind and build on the momentum earned from their previous win, Northern Diamonds will certainly have their work cut out.
