Weather and pitch report
While it is expected to be partly cloudy, the weather forecast says there is no chance of rain in Hove on Sunday. Although a small coastal wind could make an impact, not to worry about the cloud cover.
Hove wicket is normally good and balanced which neither favours the batsmen nor the bowlers. However, it will be interesting to see who will have the last laugh.
In the last six meetings between the two teams, Southern Vipers and Loughborough both have managed to win three times each.
