The Lightning and Sunrisers will clash in the 15th match of the Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy at the Haslegrave Ground in Loughborough on Saturday.
The Lightning, led by Kathryn Bryce, started the tournament with two back-to-back defeats. But the resilient Lightning bounced back in their third contest against the Thunder with a whopping 134-run win. Going forward, they will look to continue similar match-winning performances.
Meanwhile, the Sunrisers are winless so far in the competition after playing three matches. Though the team has some exceptional cricketing talent, they are yet to take off in the tournament owing to their inconsistent performances in all three departments. Before the tournament moves to the business end, the Sunrisers would surely love to get some wins under their belt and spoil other teams’ party.

The Haslegrave Ground in Loughborough is a two-paced wicket with a few teams posting totals above 170 and other sides failing to go past the 100-run mark. From what has been observed so far, the batters need to spend some time on the wicket before going for their shots.
Medium pacers and spinners are expected to extract a lot of assistance from this tricky surface if they maintain good lines and lengths.
