A high-scoring game beckons at Lord's despite some help on offer for the bowlers. Although there should be some swing for the new-ball bowlers, the batters will look to dominate from the word go. The spinners will play a significant role in the middle overs with wickets in hand being key towards the backend. Both teams will look to bat first upon winning the toss, with 130-140 being a decent total at the iconic Lord's.
Today's SOB-W vs OVI-W Dream11 match top picks
Carla Rudd: Although Carla Rudd hasn't done much with the bat, she has been fairly solid when given a chance down the order. She should get the nod over Sarah Bryce, with her glovework also playing into her favor.
Danielle Wyatt: Danielle Wyatt has been brilliant with the bat at the top of the order with a heap of runs to her name. However, in the absence of Smriti Mandhana, Wyatt will be one to watch out for as she will look to make good use of the conditions first-up.
Dane van Niekerk: Dane van Niekerk has been the standout player for the Oval Invincibles, providing the balance with both the bat and ball. With form on her side as well, one can expect her to deliver some points in the final.
Tash Farrant: Tash Farrant has been sensational with over 15 wickets to her name. Her ability to nail yorkers holds her in good stead, making her a must-have in your SOB-W vs OV-W Dream11 fantasy team.
