SOB-W vs BPH-W: Team Previews
Southern Brave Women
Southern Brave Women have been on point in The Hundred Women's 2023 this season. They kicked things off with a smashing 27-run win against Trent Rockets women, stumbled with a four-run defeat to Welsh Fire Women, but bounced back strongly with three consecutive wins.
However, they served some sweet revenge on the Welsh Fire Women, beating them with two wickets in their most recent face-off. Riding that wave of victory, they march into this match, aiming to stretch that winning streak further. They are holding second place on the points board for now, but a win here would rocket them to the top.
Birmingham Phoenix Women
On the other hand, it has been a bumpy ride for Birmingham Phoenix Women. They are searching for their first win this season, but luck has not been on their side. With four losses in five games, and even a match being rained out due to bad weather, it's been a bit of a slog for them.
They are rolling into this match fresh from a 10-run loss against the Oval Invincibles Women. They are currently languishing at the bottom of the points table. While their playoff dreams might be fading, they have got to be gunning for wins in their upcoming games to salvage some pride.
