London Spirit and Trent Rockets are all set to lock horns in the 10th match of the Women’s Hundred on Thursday, July 29 at the Lord’s in London. The hosts started their campaign with a three-wicket win over the Birmingham Phoenix, but slumped to a 15-run loss at the hands of the Oval Invincibles.
The Spirit are likely to have Tammy Beaumont back in the mix and her inclusion will strengthen their batting. The Rockets, on the other hand, are languishing at the bottom of the points table with losses in their first two games. Their net run rate of -2.500 isn’t the best by any stretch of the imagination.

Heather Knight has been in decent form for the Spirit in the tournament. In two matches, the England skipper has notched 61 runs at an average of 30.50 and strike rate of 132.60. She is also the leading run-scorer for the Spirit in the event until now. Knight can also bowl handy off-breaks and has one wicket at an economy rate of 6.90.
Probable best bowler of the match
Sammy-Jo Johnson— Trent Rockets
Sammy-Jo Johnson has been the standout bowler for the Rockets, though her team hasn’t quite stepped up and delivered. In seven overs, the fast bowler has picked up four wickets at an incredible economy of 4.80. Johnson also got a four-wicket haul against the Northern Superchargers, albeit her efforts went in vain. She remains an asset to the team.
