The Hundred 2023: Birmingham Phoenix vs London Spirit, Match 32 – Key Players
Eve Jones: The Phoenix captain has had a difficult season, allowing only 71 runs in 5 innings pitched at a strike rate of 102.9. The Central Sparks’ opener will try to finish her season on a high note in her final match against the Spirit.
Erin Burns: The Australian all-rounder has 65 runs at an average of 10.83 in six innings. Even her off-spin has failed to create enough breakthroughs, with only one wicket in 17 sets. Her all-around performance could be key in the final league game.
Grace Harris: In 24 international innings, the 29-year-old power slugger has 368 runs scored and a strike rate of 168.8. She has had a disappointing season, scoring only 27 runs in five innings with a strike rate of 93.1, so the Australian will look to hammer the balls throughout her stint against the Phoenix.
Tara Norris: In the current season, the Pennsylvania-born bowler has only taken two wickets in five innings. She made history in March when she became the first bowler in the Women’s Premier League to take a fifer, and she will attempt to emulate her achievement in her most recent encounter.
