London Spirit Women and Welsh Fire Women are set to face each other in the last league stage game of The Hundred Women’s Championship on August 18, 2021. Given that both the teams are languishing at the bottom of the table at 7th and 8th position respectively, a win in this game won’t help them to reach the knockouts. However, they can aim for higher finish in the points table finish by registering a win in their final game.
Despite being at the bottom of the table, Welsh Fire Women have had many impressive performers throughout the Championship. Having said that, Hayley Matthews is the MVP of the franchise and an excellent choice for captain. Additionally, wicketkeeper batter Sarah Taylor and Georgia Redmayne can contribute in putting runs on the board. Lastly, Bryony Smith and Piepa Cleary can get some points from their respective departments.
Coming to their opponents, Tammy Beaumont and Heather Knight are the best picks from London Spirit, and are smart picks for the vice-captain role. Additionally, Deepti Sharma’s all-round performances makes her a must-have in one’s fantasy team. Further, Deandra Dottin and Danielle Gibson can fetch some good amount of points from the bowling department.
