Northern Superchargers Women
Northern Superchargers haven't really had the kind of campaign they would have hoped for before the tournament started and will be looking to give it their all in what is likely to be their last match. They do stand a chance to get to the next round but that is more mathematical than practical. They would not only have to win this one with a colossal margin but will also need luck to favor them.
On the points table at the moment, they are placed sixth with just four points to their name. They have won only two out of a total of five matches played until now and have a pretty poor net run-rate of -0.349. Even though they need a miracle to qualify from here, they would still be targeting a win and finish their campaign on a high.
On paper, the Northern Superchargers Women have a fairly good amount of firepower. They haven't really got their execution right up until now and will be hoping to get it right in this match. The likes of Alyssa Healy and Laura Wolvaardt are as good as any in the competition. They do have a pretty good bowling attack to complement their potent batting unit. They would want to be at their very best here and if they can do that, Southern Brave Women will have their work cut out.
