CES vs NOD Match Preview

Northern Diamonds started their campaign in the Feyhoe Flint Trophy with a dominant 105-run victory over Western Storm, led by top-order batters Lauren Winfield-Hill, Bess Heath, and South African debutant Chloe Tryon. Leg-spinner Katie Levick claimed four wickets to secure the win for the Diamonds.


In contrast, Central Sparks suffered a tough defeat against The Blaze in their opening game, despite opener Tammy Beaumont's impressive score of 60. The Blaze off-spinner Lucy Higham played a key role in their victory, achieving a career-best of five for 19 with the ball and contributing 24 runs with the bat. Despite three wickets each for Emily Arlott, Grace Potts, and spinner Georgia Davis, no one could produce the necessary performance with the bat for the Sparks, who finished well off the pace at 153 all out.

Weather Report

While chasing is getting increasingly popular in this format of the game, it surely isn't as rewarding as it is popular. The surface tends to slow down towards the end of the match, especially in day games. We expect both captains to consider that and the fact that it is going to be a sunny, albeit cold day. Captain winning the toss is likely to bat first.

Pitch Report


County Ground at Worcester isn't really known for its true surface and that is apparent by the scores we have seen scored here. Most often in domestic matches, we have seen scores hovering in the range of about 210-230. We expect there to be ample assistance for the bowlers with weather conditions helping as well. Considering all that and how the two sides did in their respective opening matches, anything over 240 should be a good total batting first.

Team News

There are no injury related news from any of the camps. Expect both sides to go in with an unchanged side each.
