YD vs SV Dream11 : Southern Vipers look to move into second place today while Yorkshire Diamonds look to make it two wins on the bounce for the first time
Just when the season threatened to fold its curtains for Yorkshire Diamonds, the side ended up punching above their weight yesterday to infuse much needed life into their season. In what was a win of paramount importance for the side, they ended up outplaying Surrey Starts by 5 wickets to keep their sojourn in the culminating season of the league kicking about.
Restricting Surrey Stars to just 121 on what was an extremely tricky wicket, Yorkshire Diamonds managed to navigate past the target at hand in what was a jaffer of an encounter. It took them till the last over but the way the side managed to persevere in sticky conditions will immensely buoy the outfit, giving them the impetuous needed to ahead of today’s clash.
Currently in third place with 18 points, for Surrey Starts, today’s clash is about moving into second place as they look to put behind them a disappointing showing against table toppers Western Storm. The side were left clutching onto the barest of straws as they rummaged through to the end of their run chase, falling short by 15 runs as they went from 111-2 to folding out their pursuit at 155.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
Although this has usually been a solid batting surface, over the course of the last two months, it’s been tough to call out what kind of surface we’ll get here. Based on recent encounters though, this should be a wicket which favours the pacers with the new ball before eventually settling down and allowing batsmen to play their full range of shots.
The side winning the toss should be looking to field first over here.

YD vs SV Dream 11 Picks
Wicket-Keepers for YD vs SV Dream11
With both the wicket-keepers impressing us in this league we couldn’t pick between the two, seeing us dole out both of them for this encounter. Captain of her side and number 3 bat, Tammy Beaumont is our first pick with the Southern Vipers’ wicket-keeper scoring 25 runs yesterday, further showcasing the consistency he’s showcased across the league.
From the other side we have opted for Alyssa Healy after her 38 runs yesterday along with contributions from the rest of the top-order saw Yorkshire imbed a successful run chase.
Batswomen for YD vs SV Dream11
Her 32 ball 56, one laden with two 6s and eight 4s was an exemplary knock, one which saw her side get the perfect platform inside the powerplay overs, making their chances of chasing down a trickery target plausible at one stage. Southern Vipers’ opener, Danielle Wyatt has been pivotal to everything right the side have done till now, crafting out sensational displays with the bat to reassert her status as one of the best in the arena.
He have also decided to pursue with opener Suzie Bates despite her wavering form over the course of the last couple of clashes while Jeremiah Rodrigues comes into our side from the opposition after scoring 42 runs yesterday as her side got past the finishing line right at the nick of time. Hollie Armitage comes in as well after scoring 24, a determined and resolute knock which was unlucky to be brought to an end through a run-out.
All-Rounders for YD vs SV Dream11
With 28 runs yesterday and the one wicket with the ball, Southern Vipers’ Stefanie Taylor is emerging as the best all-rounder from the league. She’s consistently immersed us in terrific displays with both the bat and ball, intertwining her skill set as a player to help her side go on the road of ascendancy in the league.
Bowling Order for YD vs SV Dream11
Lauren Bell is our first pick from Southern Vipers despite her being extremely expensive yesterday. Her operating in the opening overs along with coming on in the death overs a swell make her excellent value and if she can emulate her rousing showings from the early stages, expect her to snare wickets at will today.
Tash Farrant comes in as well after getting two wickets yesterday while legspinner Katie Levick is our first pick from the opposition. Her spell of 2-13 yesterday ended up breaking Surrey, a devastating performance with the ball that left the batters cramped for room.
Alive comes in as well for us after taking the one wicket yesterday to complete our side.
Captain And Vice-Captain for YD vs SV Dream11
Taylor is our captain for today while Wyatt is the vice-captain.
