The Oval London will lock horns with Birmingham in the eliminator of The 100-ball League women’s competition 2021 at Kennington Oval in London on Friday, August 20.
Led by Dane Van Niekerk, London finished second in the points table with nine points from eight games. The Oval London women managed four wins, three defeats while one match ended with no result during the league phase.
On the other hand, Birmingham qualified for the eliminator after winning their last three matches on the trot. After a poor start to their campaign, the Amy Ellen Jones-led Birmingham found momentum in the latter half of the group stage as they finished third in the standings with eight points from as many matches.
India’s swashbuckling opener Shafali Verma, who is representing Birmingham, will be one of the star attractions in the high-profile encounter at Kennington Oval.
During the only time when Oval London and Birmingham met in the league phase, it was the London team that emerged on the top courtesy of an eight-wicket win.
The winner of the Oval London vs Birmingham eliminator match will face Southampton in the 100-ball League women’s competition 2021 final on Saturday.
Southampton women stormed into the summit clash after winning seven of their eight group phase matches in the competition.
