The second edition of the Charlotte Edwards Cup will kick off on Saturday, May 14 and as many as four matches will be played on the opening day. One of the four matches will be played between Southern Vipers and Thunder at The 1st Central County Ground, Hove from 7 PM IST. While Southern Vipers reached the semifinal of the inaugural edition in 2021, Thunder finished third among the four Group B teams.
The format of the women's 20-over competition which has been named after former England Women captain Charlotte Edwards involves a round-robin style wherein each of the eight teams will meet the other three teams in its pool twice (home and away). One of the two group winners with maximum points will go straight into the finals. The other group winner will clash against the best second-paced team among the two pools. The last edition of the tournament was won by Group A table-toppers South East Stars who had leapfrogged Group B leaders Northern Diamonds by 4 points to directly qualify for the final. Charlotte Edwards Cup 2022 will be played between May 14 to June 11. While we get ready for this fixture, let us have a look at the top team bet from the SV vs THU head-to-head encounter.
Mentioned below is the top team bet from the SV vs THU head-to-head contest.
There was no Southern Vipers versus Thunder (SV vs THU) encounter during the inaugural edition as the two teams were placed in different pools and Thunder finished third after losing three out of their six matches in Group B. Southern Vipers won four league matches to finish second behind South East Stars in Group A. However, they lost their semi-final match by runs against Northern Diamonds. The likes of England Women internationals Danni Wyatt, Georgia Elwiss and Charlie Dean will represent Vipers. Georgia Adams, who scored 215 runs - third-highest in the 2021 season, will be seen leading the side again. Tara Norris, the third-highest wicket-taker with 13 scalps in the previous edition, pacer Elwiss (10 wickets in 2021 edition), off-spinner Charlotte Taylor (9 wickets in 2021 edition) and off-spinner Dean (7 wickets in 4 matches in 2021 edition) will give a major boost to Southern Viper's second revamped attempt to win the title. For Thunder, Emma Lamb was the peak of the bowlers with nine wickets. Experienced England pacer Kate Cross and spinner Hannah Jones were next in line for Thunder with four wickets apiece. Thunder depended a lot on Lamb who was also the leading run-scorer for his team with 218 runs. Availability of Sophie Ecclestone can be a plus point for Thunder but overall, Vipers look like a more compact team to win on the opening day of the Charlotte Edwards Cup 2022. Pari Match will offer you the best betting odds in favour of SV and you should grab it to earn a profitable return.
