The Oval Invincibles have had a troubled season, with two of their three South African overseas players Marizanne Kapp and Shabnim Ismail facing injuries, but their top-tier bowling attack has led the way for them and their domestic players have stood up at important moments. The winning team will face Southern Brave in the finals on Saturday, August 21.
Top players to watch out for:
For the Birmingham Phoenix, Evelyn Jones and Amy Jones have been their star batters, whereas the main focus will be on Kirstie Gordon, their leading wicket-taker.
The seventeen-year-old Alice Capsey had an amazing season having impressed with both bat and ball for Invincibles. She is their third-highest run-scorer and second-highest wicket-taker, striking the ball powerfully over the covers and firing in flat off-breaks to good effect. The return of Shabnim Ismail and Marizanne Kapp to the playing eleven should give The Oval Invincibles a lot of confidence. Captain Dane van Niekerk has been an exceptional batter for the Invincibles throughout the tournament.
