Western Storm will be taking on Central Sparks at County Ground in Bristol in the Match 5 of the Rachael Flint Trophy. 

Western Storm started their campaign with a 75 run win over Lightning. Sophie Luff, Fran Wilson and wicket-keeper batter Nat Wraith led the batting and took the Storm to a total of 260. Danielle Gibson took 2 wickets and Lauren Filer took a 3fer while defending the target. Rain played spoilsport but the damage was already done to Lightning and Western Storm won the match by 75 runs by the DLS method. Western Storm will be hoping to carry on the momentum and make it two in a row at the beginning of the tournament. Luff’s team lost the only game played against Central Sparks last year. They will be looking to make things even and register their second win of the tournament.
