Head Coach: Dani Hazell

Captain: Lauren Winfield

Overseas: Alyssa Healy (Aus), Leigh Kasperek (NZ), Jemimah Rodrigues (Ind)

Last Year: An improvement on previous campaigns with three wins – but they’ll be looking higher up the table this time round. With two of the best players in world cricket, in Australian Alyssa Healy and Indian Jemimah Rodrigues, they’ll be a real threat with the bat in hand. Likewise, two English imports could be huge for them. If Linsey Smith and Katie George can replicate the kind of form they’ve both shown at different points in the KSL – or for England – they should be an all-round package. Look out for new coach Dani Hazell as well, her first time in the dug-out in the KSL and she’ll want to improve on how the Diamonds have gone in previous years.

First up: Surrey Stars, August 6, Headingley, 7pm.
