The newest addition to the cricket calendar is here, and we can’t be happier. It’s always exciting when a new tournament is ready to begin, but this is a whole new structure. The Hundred is all about the balls, not the overs. We urge that potential punters review the new regulations before playing so that they do not make any errors or blunders.
The women’s tournament will run concurrently with the men’s The Hundred competition, and there will be some fantastic betting possibilities to take advantage of!
On July 21, 2021, the match will be held at the Kia Oval in London.

Oval Invincibles Women vs Manchester Originals Women Team Previews
Oval Invincibles Women
The format has altered, and the rules have been adjusted slightly, but the Hundred is still a bat-and-ball battle. We don’t have much experience in this format yet, but we believe that our T20 abilities will translate well to the Hundred.
The batters to keep an eye on for the Invincibles are Fran Wilson, Dane van Niekerk, and Marizanne Kapp. While these are solid guys, we would have preferred to see a little more power in this group.
Shabnim Ismail will spearhead the bowling assault. She is one of the finest women’s cricketers in the world, and we believe she will be a handful in this format. However, there are a handful of all-around bowling choices but not the depth that we would have preferred to see.
Oval Invincibles Women Squad
Georgia Adams, Megan Belt, Sarah Bryce, Alice Capsey, Tash Farrant, Jo Gardner, Grace Gibbs, Eva Gray, Danielle Gregory, Shabnim Ismail, Marizanne Kapp, Rhianna Southby, Dané van Niekerk, Mady Villiers, Fran Wilson
Probable XI: Sarah Bryce, Georgia Adams, Dan van Niekerk, Fran Wilson, Marizanne Kapp, Alice Capsey, Grace Gibbs, Shabnim Ismail, Tash Farrant, Mady Villiers, Eva Gray
Manchester Originals Women
Lizelle Lee, one of the most destructive batters in women’s cricket, plays for the Manchester Originals. You know she’ll be pushy and push limits, but she’s not always consistent. The Manchester Originals, like their opponents, lack batting depth.
Other batters in the lineup include Mignon du Preez, Harmanpreet Kaur, and Cordelia Griffith. Harmanpreet Kaur is a strong batter to have in the middle order, but her recent form with India has not been stellar. She may, however, switch it on at any point and should not be counted out.
Sophie Ecclestone is the finest female spinner in the game. There is no doubt about that. She is usually difficult to assault, and we believe she will be one of the participants in the inaugural The Hundred tournament. Kate Cross and Kate Hartley are also quality bowlers, thus the Manchester Originals’ attack appears to be stronger than the Invincibles’.

Georgie Boyce, Natalie Brown, Danielle Collins, Kate Cross (c), Mignon du Preez, Alice Dyson, Sophie Ecclestone, Cordelia Griffith, Alexandra Hartley, Hannah Jones, Emma Lamb, Lizelle Lee, Eleanor Threlkeld (wk), Harmanpreet Kaur, Laura Jackson
Probable XI: Lizelle Lee, Emma Lamb, Georgia Boyce, Harmanpreet Kaur, Mignon du Preez, Cordelia Griffith, Natalie Brown, Hannah Emily Jones, Sophie Ecclestone, Kate Cross, Alex Hartley.

Oval Invincibles Women vs Manchester Originals Women Betting Tips
In this match, we’re going to back the Manchester Originals. The Originals not only have a better bowling attack, but we believe they also have greater depth than the Invincibles. Having the best white-ball bowler in women’s cricket (Sophie Ecclestone) is also a major plus.
Oval Invincibles captain Dane van Niekerk is anticipated to begin the batting and we believe she will be their main run-scorer in this match.
Tash Farrant, a pace bowler who rejoined the England squad earlier this year, is a solid chance to be Oval Invincible’s main wicket scorer in this game.
Harmanpreet Kaur has four international white-ball hundreds and will most likely bat at the top of the order for Manchester Originals. She is worth a bet as their leading run-scorer in their first match.
Manchester Originals are the favorite to win.
