The second match of The Women’s Hundred is scheduled on August 12, where the 2021 finalists Southern Brave will square off against London Spirit at the Rose Bowl in Southampton. Brave ended as the runners-up of the first edition as even after consistent performances throughout the tournament, they ended up losing to Oval Invincibles in the final.

The Anya Shrubsole-led Brave have a brilliant overseas lineup, and they will be in the tournament with an aim to finish what was left last season. As for the London Spirit, the team has already faced a major setback even before the start of the tournament as skipper Heather Knight has been ruled out of the entire tournament owing to an injury that she sustained before the Commonwealth Games.

Spirit’s star performers Tammy Beaumont, Deandra Dottin, and Deepti Sharma have moved to a different franchise now. It is going to be a challenging task for the players to rise above the best of teams.

SOB-W vs LOS-W, Match 2, Probable Top Performers

Probable best batter of the match:

Smriti Mandhana:

The Indian opening batter is in great form, and her numbers at the Commonwealth Games prove so. She was among the top performers for the Brave last season and managed to provide the side with a good start. Mandhana is always among the runs and is an expert at placing her shots. Thus, something similar will be expected from her in the team’s opening fixture.

Probable best bowler of the match

Amanda-Jade Wellington:

The Australian spinner will continue to represent the Southern Brave this time again. She was the leading wicket-taker for her side in the first edition and managed to provide the side with a breakthrough during crunch situations. Even Lauren Bell, for that matter, fulfilled her role, but Wellington’s spin played a crucial role.
