Trent rockets needed just 64 balls to outscore their opponent’s 110 run total. Lizelle Lee (44* runs), Bryony Smith (28* runs), and Nat Sciver (33* runs), their top order trio, all played solid blows to get them to the finish line in the chase. Their middle order batters haven’t had much success this year, but they’ll want to change that in this important game.
A brave effort was made by their bowlers to keep the opponents to 107/5 in 100 balls. With combined numbers of 60-33-50-2 throughout the game, their trio of Katherine Brunt Sciver, Alana King, and Kristie Gordan scored runs at a rate of fewer than one per ball. Bryony Smith and Alexa Stonehouse both had effective bowling performances with 20 balls at 1/27 each.

In their most recent game, which the Birmingham Phoenix lost by three runs, they were given a target of 133 runs. Following cameos from Eve Jones and Stelle Kallis, Amy Jones (31 runs) and Erin Burns (29 runs) played strong knocks in the middle order. When they had six wickets in hand and needed 15 runs off 12 balls, their lower order botched the chase.
In a 100-ball contest, their bowlers were taken for 132/4. Arlott, who bowled 2/22 in his 15 balls, was the best bowler. In the previous game, Erin Burns, Katie Levick, and Hannah Baker used their spells sparingly. With the exception of a few pricey overs, their bowlers performed well as a team.
Amy Jones, Issy Wong, Emily Arlott, Sophie Devine, Hannah Baker, Katie Levick, Eve Jones, Abtaha Maqsood, Erin Burns, Chloe Brewer, Sterre Kalis, Davina Perrin, Abbey Freeborn, Charis Pavely.
Players to watch out for:
Sophie Devine went from being a bowler who occasionally batted at No. 11 to becoming one of the game’s best all-rounders and most potent hitters. She made history by becoming the first player—male or female—to score five straight fifty-plus scores in T20 Internationals in the early 2020s. She then extended this streak to six at the start of the 2020 T20 World Cup, where she also captained New Zealand.
She is another leggie who enjoyed picking up wickets; in 16 innings of play in the CE Cup and the RHF Trophy, she took 30 wickets, with a best of 5 for 19 against the Northern Diamonds at the Leeds. She and Hannah Baker have the potential to be the ideal spin team.
Possible Playing XI:
Eve Jones, Stelle Kallis, Erin Burns, Amy Jones, Arlott, Katie Levick, Hannah Baker, Sophie Devine, Tess Flintoff, Abigail Freeburn, Maqsood
