The fourth match of the Women's Hundred 2022 will see Welsh Fire Women (WEF-W) take on Birmingham Phoenix Women (BPH-W) at the Sophia Gardens in Cardiff on Saturday, August 13.
Welsh Fire finished bottom of the points table last season despite the likes of Hayley Matthews and Nicole Harvey impressing for them. However, they have rung in the changes during the off-season, with Tammy Beaumont headlining the roster. Birmingham Phoenix, meanwhile, will look to improve upon their third-place finish last season. They have added the trio of Sophie Devine, Ellyse Perry and Deepti Sharma to their ranks, adding some much-needed balance to the side. Although Phoenix will start as the favorites, Welsh Fire will bank on home conditions to see them through. All in all, a mouthwatering clash beckons in Cardiff.

WEF-W vs BPH-W, The Women's Hundred 2022, Match 4
Date and Time: 7th August 2022, 7:00 PM IST
Venue: Sophia Gardens, Cardiff
As seen in the Men's Hundred match between the Oval Invincibles and Welsh Fire earlier in the week, the pitch is two-paced with the ball holding up a bit off the surface. The batters will have to bide their time in the middle before going on the attack. The spinners should also get some help in the middle phase, making for an intriguing contest between the bat and ball. Both teams will look to bat first upon winning the toss, with 130 being a good total at the venue.

Tammy Beaumont: Tammy Beaumont has shifted bases from London to Cardiff, turning out for the Welsh Fire this season. Although Beaumont has been dropped from the England T20I side, she remains a force to be reckoned with in this format. While she is known to be a slow starter, Beaumont can make up for it with his experience and batting prowess.

She is known for his knack for scoring big runs at the top order and ability to hit massive sixes. Devine also adds value with her bowling, holding her in high regard on the women's circuit.
