Match: Birmingham Phoenix women vs Trent Rockets women (BHM-W vs TRN-W)

Date: August 15, Monday, 7:30 PM IST

Venue: Edgbaston, Birmingham

Trent Rockets will take on Birmingham Phoenix in the seventh game of the women’s Hundred 2022 at Edgbaston in Birmingham on August 15. Phoenix started their 2022 campaign with a 19-run win over Welsh Fire and placed at the third position in the points table with two points and a net run rate of 0.950. Against Fire, they scored 161 for 5 in 100 balls on the back of a half century by Ellyse Perry and 48 runs by Sophie Devine. Later, a combined bowling effort from Georgia Elwiss, Abtaha Maqsood and Sophie Devine helped them defend the target.

Trent Rockets, meanwhile, are right at the top of the points table. After winning their opening game against the Manchester Originals comprehensively, they have a strong NRR of 2.150. Batting first, Trent Rocket scored only 119 runs but a magnificent bowling spell from Alana King helped them defend it. King, who became the first cricketer in the Hundred to claim a hat-trick, finished with four wickets and was well supported by Kathryn Bryce and Sarah Glenn, who picked up two wickets each.

If Birmingham win the next game, they will move up to the top spot in the points table and Rockets will move to the second spot.

Five players to watch out for

Here we list five players you must pick in your MPL fantasy XI for BHM-W vs TRN-W

Sophie Devine – all-rounder, Birmingham Phoenix

One of the best all-rounders in women’s international cricket, Sophie Devine narrowly missed out of a half century in the opening game. Most recently at the Commonwealth Games, she scored a few fine knocks, including a half century each against England and Australia. Devine is one of the most experienced players, having played 107 T20 internationals from which she has a batting average of more than 30 along with 104 wickets.

Ellyse Perry – batter, Birmingham Phoenix

Ellyse Perry scored a half century for Birmingham in their opening game and will be looking for another big knock in the next game.

Abigail Freeborn – wicketkeeper batter, Trent Rockets

Uncapped Abbigail Freeborn is a relatively unknown name, but after her performance in Rocket’s season opener, she is among the most picked players for the second game.
