The 16th match of the Women's Hundred 2022 will see Welsh Fire Women (WEF-W) take on London Spirit Women (LNS-W) at Lord's in London on Wednesday, August 24. Ahead of this exciting match, here's all you need to know about the much-awaited LNS-W vs WEF-W Dream 11 prediction.
Both teams are yet to win a game this season and are all but out of the reckoning for a play-off spot. While the London Spirit have been edged out in each of their games, Welsh Fire have lacked sufficient firepower to compete against the likes of Southern Brave and Birmingham Phoenix.
Welsh Fire will be without Hayley Matthews for the remainder of the Hundred, but still have a good mix of youth and experience in their side to fall back on. The London Spirit, meanwhile, will rely on the duo of Beth Mooney and Amelia Kerr to get them over the line today.
With both sides looking to avoid the wooden spoon, a cracker of a game beckons in London.

LNS-W vs WEF-W Dream11 match top picks
Top Wicketkeeper Pick
Beth Mooney (3 matches, 140 runs, Average: 70.00)
Beth Mooney has been the London Spirit's best batter, scoring 140 runs in three matches. However, a major chunk of those runs came in her first outing against the Southern Brave. Regardless, she has been in good form throughout the English summer and could be backed to play a big knock today.
Top Batter Pick
Tammy Beaumont (3 matches, 93 runs, Average: 46.50)
Tammy Beaumont has been steady for the Welsh Fire, scoring 93 runs in three matches. However. her strike rate of 112.04 is on the lower side, which has been a concern in her batting for some time now. With Beaumont still scoring loads of runs at the top of the order, she is a good addition to your LNS-W vs WEF-W Dream11 fantasy team.
Top All-rounder Pick
Amelia Kerr (3 matches, 79 runs, 5 wickets)
Amelia Kerr has been the standout player for the London Spirit, scoring 79 runs and picking up five wickets in three matches. While her batting form has varied during the Hundred, Kerr's bowling ability has been crucial to the London Spirit's fortunes. With her all-round ability bound to have a say, she is a must-have in your LNS-W vs WEF-W Dream11 fantasy team.
Top Bowler Pick
Alex Hartley (3 matches, 3 wickets, Economy rate: 5.25)
Alex Hartley, who made the move from Manchester Originals to Welsh Fire, has been decent with the ball, accounting for three wickets. She has also been economical, conceding less than run-a-ball this season. With her experience bound to come in handy, Hartley is one to watch out for in this game.
LNS-W vs WEF-W match captain and vice-captain choices
Annabel Sutherland has been Welsh Fire's most impactful player this season, picking up three wickets and scoring 56 runs at a strike rate of 125. With Hayley Matthews not available, she is likely to bat higher up the order, helping her maximize her potential. Given her recent form as well, Sutherland should be a popular option for captaincy in this game.
Beth Mooney is among the top run-scorers with her score of 97* against Southern Brave still being the highest in this edition of the Hundred. While Mooney is known for her hunger for big runs, she also adds value with her keeping, making her the perfect captaincy option for your LNS-W vs WEF-W Dream11 fantasy team.
