At the halfway point of the Women’s version of The Hundred Competition 2022, each team has played four games. The London Spirit Women’s victory has kept them in the hunt by the slimmest of margins and thrown the standings wide open. Now that we’re deep into the playoff hunt, the outcome of every game matters greatly for the final standings.
Trent Women’s Rockets will take on Southern Women’s Brave on August 25th, 2022 in the following round of the tournament. The Ageas Bowl in Southampton will be the scene of the contest. Both teams have been successful thus far and want to win this game for different reasons. Regardless, we anticipate this to be a nail-biter that you won’t want to miss.
SBW vs TRW Team Previews
Southern Brave Women
The current standings show that the Southern Brave Women have been the top team in the competition so far. They’ve won four straight games and are looking to make it five. They know that if they can win this game, they will advance to the next round.
Naturally, they are ranked first at the moment and are likely to remain there, at least temporarily, regardless of the outcome. They have a fantastic net run rate of 0.596 and eight points.
The Brave Women look like a formidable team on paper, with strong batting and bowling options. Smriti Mandhana, Danni Wyatt, Sophia Dunkley, Tahlia McGrath, and Amanda Jade Wellington are all seasoned veterans who help the younger members of the team perform under duress. In addition, they have a slew of promising young players who have contributed capably. The Brave Women have done an excellent job thus far, and if they continue to perform at this level, it will be very difficult to defeat them.

Trent Rockets Women
The Trent Rockets Women’s performance has been much better than their record indicates, something they’ll aim to change going ahead. Except for a single defeat at the hands of the Phoenix, they have been there or thereabouts. They put up a valiant fight against the Oval Invincibles Women, but the Invincibles ultimately prevailed on the match’s penultimate delivery.
Right now they are in fourth place on the ladder with four points after two games and a fantastic net run rate of 0.574. If they win, they’ll move up to second place, but if they lose, it could hurt their chances of advancing.
The Rockets Women’s most recent victory indicates that they are finally starting to get back up to speed. They recently had a crushing victory over the London Spirit Women and will look to carry that momentum into their next match. In Elyse Villani, Nat Sciver, and Mignon du Preez, they have three of the most seasoned players in the game. Nevertheless, they appear to be having a long tail, with Alana King coming into bat at number five. A lot rides on their top-order functioning well and if that happens, Southern Brave Women will have their work cut out.
