Another double header for Somerset Women
Somerset Women face a long trip this weekend for another T20 double header.
The squad travel to Hartlepool CC for matches against Durham and Cheshire on Sunday.
Ahead of the games, Somerset Captain, Sophie Luff said: “After a mixed weekend last weekend, we’re feeling confident going into our next round of T20s. We have an incredibly long journey to make on the Saturday and we’ll be hoping two victories can make the journey home more bearable on Sunday!
“As I’ve said before, our bowling and fielding performances have been a consistent strength this season, and it was no different last weekend. Our bowlers did a great job in restricting both Essex and Yorkshire. In the Essex game, we couldn’t quite get over the line with the bat but to bounce back and win comprehensively against a decent Yorkshire side was very pleasing. We’ve spoken a lot about batters taking responsibility, and they certainly did that in that game.
“Having beaten Durham in the 50 over format, we know what to expect from them and we certainly won’t be taking them lightly because they’ll be looking to get one back over on us. Cheshire are a bit of an unknown quantity, so the challenge will be adapting quickly to whatever they throw at us.”
Somerset have named the following squad: Sophie Luff *, Nat Wraith +, Nicole Richards, Emma Godman, Niamh Holland, Lauren Filer, Lorraine Szczepanski, Jodie Filer, Tilly Bond, Alisa Scantlebury, Georgia Tulip, Jess Smith.
The match against Durham begins at 10:30 with the Cheshire match due to get underway at 4:30pm.Back to News
