Who Will Win Southern Vipers vs Yorkshire Diamonds, WCSL 2019?
After their hard-fought win over Surrey Stars, Yorkshire Diamonds will look to build on the momentum when they face-off against the Southern Vipers. This 22nd fixture of the Women's Cricket Super League 2019 will be played on August 21 at The Rose Bowl in Southampton. Live telecast of the match is scheduled to begin at 6:30 PM local time.
Southern Vipers and Yorkshire Diamonds have had contrasting results so far in the WCSL 2019. While the former have lost just two out of seven league matches and are third on the points table with 18 points, the latter have only two wins from their six matches and are lying at the fifth spot in the standings. Yorkshire currently find themselves in a spot of bother and they need to win their next few games, otherwise it will get very difficult for them to catch up with the teams that are ahead on the points table.
SV vs YD, WCSL 2019: Where to watch/Live streaming
No rain has been forecast for Wednesday and so it should be a full forty-over game. However, there could be plenty of cloud cover especially during the second-half. Temperature is expected to range from 15 to 19 degrees Celsius in the evening while humidity will be around 59-85%.
SV vs YD Pitch Condition
The Rose Bowl has so far hosted only one match in this year's Women's Cricket Super League - Southern Vipers vs Western Storm which was played almost ten days ago. The pitch had something in it for both batters as well as bowlers and similar conditions can be expected for this game as well.
SV vs YD Toss Prediction
Western Storm edged out Southern Vipers at this ground while chasing last time out, and since the pitch is unlikely to change after the first period of play, the toss-winning skipper will probably opt to field first.

Southern Vipers Team News & Playing 11
SV Team News
Southern Vipers made three changes to their side in their 89-run win against Surrey Stars from their tied encounter against Lancashire Thunder. They dropped Thea Brookes, Carla Rudd and Isabelle Wong for Marie Kelly, Paige Scholfield and Lauren Bell. Although none of the replacements had a good outing last time, the Vipers may want to persist with them for now. Danielle Wyatt and Suzie Bates, who stitched a century stand between them, will continue to open the batting. We expect the Southern Vipers to go into this game unchanged.
SV Key Players
Danielle Wyatt: With 205 runs in five matches, Danielle Wyatt is the tournament's highest run-scorer this season. She is averaging 43.50 and is having an impressive strike-rate of 153.52. The opener cracked 110 off just 60 balls recently against Surrey Stars and 56 off 32 balls last time against Western Storm. The Vipers will be expecting another match-winning performance from her.
Natasha Farrant: She is one of the leading wicket-takers of the WCSL 2019 with nine wickets in five matches. The left-arm pacer returned figures of 2-17 from two overs against Surrey Stars last Sunday. She will be bowling with the new ball and the onus will be on her to pick up early wickets in the powerplay.
Stafanie Taylor: She is another key figure at the top of the batting order in addition to being one of the strike weapons with the ball. The all-rounder has scored 205 runs (including a half-century) and has taken eight wickets in six matches. Stafanie was the pick of the bowlers against Surrey Stars with outstanding figures of 3-11 from three overs.
SV Recent Form
Southern Vipers are currently positioned third on the WCSL 2019 points table with 18 points. They have played seven matches so far this season out of which they have won three, lost two and tied one. Their fixture against Surrey Stars last week had to be abandoned due to rain without a ball bowled. The Vipers made a positive start to their campaign this year with back-to-back wins - against Lancashire Thunder and Loughborough Lightning. They faced Western Storm last time out - in the round 2 clash - and ended up losing by 15 runs.

Yorkshire Diamonds Team News & Playing 11
YD Team News
Yorkshire Diamonds made just the one change to their line-up after their heavy nine-wicket loss to Western Storm. They replaced leg-spinner Helen Fenby with pace bowler Beth Langston in their last match against Loughborough Lightning. Langston picked up a wicket in that game and was quite economical as well, conceding only 17 runs off his four overs. His impressive showing with the ball is likely to earn him a spot in the eleven for this upcoming match against Southern Vipers. Yorkshire Diamonds are expected to retain the same line-up from last time.
YD Key Players
Hollie Armitage: She has been the most reliable batter for Yorkshire Diamonds in this year's Women's Cricket Super League. She has scored the most runs for the team - 157 in six matches - and struck a valiant 59 recently against the Western Storm. The Diamonds will need their number three to fire against the Southern Vipers.
Jemimah Rodrigues: The Indian batter has been among the runs this season and has scored 154 runs in her six innings. She smashed 58 off 40 balls in Sunday's encounter against Loughborough Lightning and the team will want her to replicate that performance on Wednesday.
Leigh Kasperek: The off-spinner has taken four wickets in six matches this season at an acceptable economy of 7.27. Yorkshire Diamonds are likely to bowl her in the powerplay and will expect her to dry up the runs from one end. Kasperek can also be handy with the bat down the order.
YD Recent Form
Yorkshire Diamonds currently find themselves lying second from the bottom on the leaderboard with four losses and just two wins from six league matches. They made a disappointing start to their WCSL 2019 campaign, losing their first two fixtures - they lost to Surrey Stars by nine runs in their opening game before being handed a nine-wicket thrashing by Loughborough Lightning. The Diamonds then secured their first win of the season, beating Lancashire Thunder in a close encounter, but lost their next two games - against Western Storm and Loughborough Lightning by nine and six wickets respectively. They, however, registered a five-wicket win in their previous encounter against Surrey Stars.

Southern Vipers vs Yorkshire Diamonds Prediction
Southern Vipers are performing way better than Yorkshire Diamonds in this fourth edition of the Women's Cricket Super League. The former find themselves in a fairly comfortable position while the latter still need to win most of their remaining matches in order to have any chance of making it through to the semi-finals. Yorkshire are already under plenty of pressure and having lost to the Vipers three times out of four in the history of the tournament will further dent their confidence ahead of this game. They do have a formidable top-order batting but most of their big guns have not looked at their best this season. Southern Vipers may be coming off a loss in their last match, but we expect them to bounce back with a win on Wednesday.
Back Southern Vipers to beat Yorkshire Diamonds at 1.61 with Betway, 1.57 with Bet365 and 1.52 on 10CRIC.
Our Dream11 team for this match consists of six players from Southern Vipers and five from Yorkshire Diamonds.
We have picked Tammy Beaumont of Southern Vipers and Alyssa Healy of Yorkshire Diamonds as the wicketkeepers in our Dream11 team. Both these batters will get ample time to score their runs as they normally bat at the top of the order for their respective teams. While Alyssa Healy is available for 10.5 credits, Tammy Beaumont can be picked at 9.5.
Danielle Wyatt is one of the leading run-getters in this year's Women's Cricket Super League and she is worth having in the side at 9.5 credits. Her opening partner Suzie Bates has scored plenty of runs for New Zealand at the international level and she too can be picked at the same price. We have also included Yorkshire's Hollie Armitage at 8.5 credits.
We have picked a couple of all-rounders in our Dream11 team, one each from both the teams. Stafanie Taylor of Southern Vipers has had a pretty good tournament so far with both bat and ball. She is expensive at 10.5 credits but is definitely worth the price. Yorkshire's Leigh Kasperek can be picked at 9 credits.
Linsey Smith has been one of the most impressive bowlers for Yorkshire Diamonds this season with five wickets in six matches. We have picked her along with Beth Langston at 8.5 credits each. Natasha Farrant is amongst the tournament's best bowlers with nine wickets in five matches and seems a very good bet at 8 credits. Lauren Bell is also available at the same price.
Danielle Wyatt is the captain of our Dream11 team.
We have picked Stafanie Taylor as the vice-captain of our team.
