The Western Storm will take on the Southern Vipers in the 16th match of the Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy at the Cooper Associates County Ground in Taunton on Saturday.
The Western Storm have managed just one win from their three matches and are currently sixth in the Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy points table. They lost their last game against the South East Stars by six wickets. Although the Western Storm will be desperate to return to winning ways as soon as possible, they face an uphill task in the absence of English trio Anya Shrubsole, Heather Knight and Katie George, who won't be available for the remainder of the Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy.
The Southern Vipers, on the other hand, have won two out of their three matches and currently find themselves in fourth spot in the standings. They started their Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy campaign with a bang, winning their first two matches. However, they will head into today's fixture on the back of a loss to the Central Sparks. The Vipers will be without their all-rounder Georgia Elwiss, who has also been called up by the England Women's team for the upcoming Test match against India Women.
