Match Details:

The 14th match of the Kia Super League 2019 will be played between Southern Vipers and Lancashire Thunder at the County Ground in Hove.

The match starts at 6:30 PM local time (11:00 PM IST) (5:30 PM GMT).

Preview:

Lancashire Thunder’s misery in the Kia Super League 2019 continued as they suffered a defeat in all four matches they played thus far. The Thunder lost their first three games by big margins but went down fighting in the last fixture. Chasing a target of 152 against Yorkshire Diamonds, the Lancashire team put themselves into winning a position with 14 runs needed from 11 balls.

However, they lost their remaining three wickets in the space of six balls only to lose the match by nine runs. They will now tour Hove to face Southern Vipers who won two out of four matches. The Vipers lost to Western Storm in the 3rd game after back to back victories. Their previous match to be played against Surrey Stars got abandoned due to rain.


Weather Condition/Report:

Thursday is forecasted to be a dry day in Hove despite cloudy conditions. There are no signs of rain from 2 PM local time while this fixture is scheduled to start at 6:30 PM. There is an outside chance of rain but in the afternoon.

Pitch Condition/Report:

The County Ground in Hove has been a high-scoring venue when it comes to KSL. However, the recent most T20I hosted by the venue saw the batters struggle and weren’t fluent in the short making. Moreover, this game will be played under the lights making it tough for the chasing sides.

Average 1st inning score: 147 (KSL matches since 2017)

Record of chasing teams: Won – 3, Lost – 2
