Ahead of the game, Dave Roberts said: “We’re massively proud to have had five players in the full Western Storm squad this year, and seeing them do so well has been amazing. Not having those five around has given us the chance to play some younger players and Sunday is a fantastic opportunity for this group to show what they can do.

“Seven of Sunday’s squad have represented our Under 17s this season with Lola Harris being the youngest player at 13 and Alice Bird is only 14.

“This weekend is a great chance for us to see how these players cope with the step up to women’s county cricket.”
