MATCH PREVIEW – SOUTH EAST STARS (5 JUNE)
A squad of fourteen will make the trip to Guildford for Sunrisers’ final fixture in this year’s Charlotte Edwards Cup, as they take on South East Stars on Sunday.
Sunrisers head into the game off the back of another extremely close defeat, as group leaders Central Sparks took the points away from Northampton in a 3 run victory.
Jo Gardner (41) and Amara Carr (37*) shared an 81 run partnership, with the wicket-keeper batter playing her first match of the season after returning from a hand injury suffered in March. Both will be looking to replicate their impressive performances at the end of the Bank Holiday weekend.
Grace Scrivens impressed once again at the top of the order and became the second player to hit over 500 competitive runs for Sunrisers, with Naomi Dattani just 17 runs away from the same landmark.
Whilst Carr returned from injury, Cordelia Griffith was absent from Wednesday’s fixture with the muscle injury she suffered last weekend. The injury has kept her out of the squad for this game, and will be targeting a return for the start of the 50 over Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy in July.
Reigning champions South East Stars come into the game in second place in Group A, one point behind the current leaders Central Sparks, after four victories and one defeat this campaign.
The game starts at 2.30pm at Woodbridge Road, as Sunrisers look to close out the T20 campaign with a deserved victory.
We wish a safe journey to those who are travelling over to Guildford to watch the game, or you can tune into the Live Stream in our Match Centre on the day.
