The Hundred 2023 Women’s tournament’s league stages will come to an end with the Birmingham Phoenix taking on the London Spirit in Match 23 on August 24 at the Edgbaston in Birmingham. The match is a dead rubber, as both the teams have been knocked out of the tournament.
The London Spirit are seventh on the points table this season. They have just one win from seven matches and four losses. Their first two matches against Oval Invincibles and Manchester Originals were washed out due to rain. The Heather Knight-led team never really got the momentum this season.
The Birmingham Phoenix too had a disastrous campaign, finishing last on the table. They have not won a single game so far, and have just one point from seven matches. Heading into the final league game of The Hundred 2023 Women’s, both London Spirit and Birmingham Phoenix will be hoping to end the season on a good note.

The surface at the Edgbaston in Birmingham initially offers some assistance to the pacers. However, playing high-risk strokes will become a bit easier once the batters face a few deliveries.
