The Southern Vipers will lock horns with the Lightning in an English Women's Regional T20 encounter at the Arundel Castle Cricket Club Ground on Saturday.
The Southern Vipers were exceptional in their English Women's Regional T20 opener, registering an eight-wicket victory over the Central Sparks. Off-spinner Charlotte Dean was the wrecker-in-chief, returning with figures of 5/19 in just 3.5 overs. The Southern Vipers' batting department, led by Danielle Wyatt, looks pretty strong as well. They will be keen to make it two wins in two games on Saturday.
The Lightning, on the other hand, lost to the South East Stars by six wickets in their first English Women's Regional T20 game. Bethany Harmer and Kathryn Bryce were the only two shining lights for them in their season opener. The Lightning will be desperate to get off the mark in the English Women's Regional T20, starting with a win over the Southern Vipers.
