Table toppers Western Storm are pitted against Southern Vipers in a Kia Super League clash at County Ground on Saturday.
Sitting at the head of the points table with 28 points, Western Storm have lost only one game so far in the competition and have emerged as the prime contenders of the title. Moreover, they come into the fixture after five wins on the bounce.
On the other hand, Southern Vipers have managed to win only two games so far in the competition. Even if they manage to win the remained of their matches, they do not have any hope to advance further. In their last fixture, they came out on top of Yorkshire Diamonds by 16 runs.
