The fifth match of the Women's Hundred 2022 will see Northern Superchargers Women (NOS-W) take on the London Spirit Women (LNS-W) at Headingley in Leeds on Sunday, August 14.
Both the London Spirit and Northern Superchargers started their campaigns on the wrong note and are in desperate need of a win. The London Spirit put in a spirited performance with the bat against the Southern Brave, but could not back it up with a good bowling performance.
The Northern Superchargers, meanwhile, were outplayed by the Oval Invincibles. But they will bank on their star trio of Alyssa Healy, Laura Wolvaardt and Jemimah Rodrigues to come up with the goods. While both teams look evenly-matched on paper, the Northern Superchargers' batting firepower should give them the edge in what promises to be a cracker of a game in Leeds.

Date and Time: 14th August 2022, 3:30 PM IST
Venue: Headingley, Leeds
A high-scoring game beckons in Leeds with there being little margin for error for the bowlers. The new ball should skid on nicely to the bat early on, allowing the batters to play their shots freely. As the match progresses, the pitch can slow down and bring the spinners into play. Wickets in hand will be crucial, with teams preferring to bat first upon winning the toss.
Today's NOS-W vs LNS-W Dream11 match top picks
Beth Mooney: Beth Mooney starred on her Hundred debut for the London Spirit, nearly scoring a hundred at the top of the order. She is one of the best batters in the world with her appetite for runs being unparalleled. Given her form and knack for scoring big runs, Mooney is a must-have in your NOS-W vs LNS-W Dream11 fantasy team.
Laura Wolvaardt: Laura Wolvaardt is one of the best batters on the women's circuit, with her record speaking for itself. The South African had a decent start to her Hundred 2022 campaign, scoring valuable runs in the middle order. With Wolvaardt capable of taking on both the pacers and spinners in the middle and backend of the innings, she is one to watch out for in this game.
Amelia Kerr: Amelia Kerr had a lukewarm outing against the Southern Brave in her previous game, unable to hold her own with the ball. However, she had a good stint with the bat, scoring 37 runs in the top order. She is a talented all-rounder who should enjoy the conditions on offer, making her a handy pick for your NOS-W vs LNS-W Dream11 fantasy team.
Charlotte Dean: Charlotte Dean is a talented off-spinner who relies on her accuracy to do the talking. Dean, who is also the London Spirit's captain in the absence of Heather Knight, can hold her own with the bat as well. With the London Spirit captain bound to have a say in this game, she can be backed to put in a good performance today.
