The Hundred Women’s Competition 2021 Match 32: Welsh Fire vs London Spirit – Preview, predicted XIs, match prediction, weather forecast and pitch report


The Welsh Fire and London Spirit are set to cross swords in Match No. 32 of the Women’s Hundred on Wednesday, August 18, at Sophia Gardens in Cardiff.

The Fire, led by Sophie Luff, have already been knocked out of the tournament. They are currently placed at the bottom of the table with four points from seven games at a net run rate of -0.727. The Fire are on a three-match losing streak and lost to the Southern Brave by 39 runs in their previous game.

Even if they win their last group game, they are most likely to end up as the cellar dwellers. The Spirit, on the other hand, started their campaign with a thumping win. But Heather Knight and Co. have lost their way and are staring down elimination ahead of their last league encounter.


They seemed to gain back their mojo after beating the Northern Superchargers and Manchester Originals. However, the eight-wicket loss at the hands of the Oval Invincibles didn’t help their cause by any means. With a net run rate of -0.337, the Spirit aren’t in the most comfortable position.
