The Trent Rockets Women will lock horns with the Manchester Originals Women in the 23rd game of the Women’s Hundred 2023 competition. The Trent Bridge in Nottingham will host this clash on Thursday (August 17).
After three games, the Trent Rockets Women managed to register a win but failed to carry forward the winning momentum as they suffered a loss against the Welsh Fire Women in their last match. This was their third loss of the competition and they now have only three points to their name.
The Rockets Women struggled as the Fire Women posted a mammoth 181 on the board. In reply, Bryony Smith scored a quickfire 48 off 21 balls but it wasn’t enough as they fell short by 41 runs. They will have to bring out their A-game on Thursday to stay alive in the Women’s Hundred 2023.
The Manchester Originals Women, meanwhile, have managed to win only a single game so far. They have lost two games while two were abandoned due to rain. They went down against the Northern Superchargers Women in their last game.
The bowlers did a decent job of restricting the Superchargers Women to 133/5. The second innings was reduced to 80 balls due to rain. Chasing a revised target of 113, Emma Lamb scored 49 at the top of the order but it wasn’t enough as they fell agonizingly short by four runs. They will have to be at their absolute best on Thursday to keep their final hopes alive.
