Trent Rockets all-rounder Kathryn Bryce says the squad is taking each day as it comes as they bid to qualify for the knockout stages.

The side are unbeaten in their last four matches, putting them in contention for a spot in the eliminator round of the competition.

Next up, local rivals Birmingham Phoenix. In their return encounter at Edgbaston, Heather Graham stole the show with bat with 44 off 21 balls before the Rockets took three early wickets dismantle the threat of in-form Eve Jones, powerhouse Shafali Verma and England’s Amy Jones.

Scotland and Lightning captain Bryce has perhaps gone under the radar so far in the competition but has been quietly building pressure early on to restrict her opponents from taking off during the first 25 balls.

“It wasn’t my best against them last time, so I am going to take what I did well against them in the warmup match instead and focus on what I’ve been doing well against other teams to build that pressure early in the powerplay,” said Bryce.

“It’s exciting to get back out there and we just need to keep it simple.

“We’ve just got to win the games in order to keep ourselves in that race for the eliminator spots.

“Obviously, we got the win against them last time, but we cannot be complacent and assume we’ll do the same again but if we go out there and improve on the little things that didn’t quite go as well the last time we played them.

“I think that’s a positive place to be in."

Trusted to bowl sets of 10, Bryce has thrived with her role within the team alongside a group of threatening bowlers who’ve reaped the rewards.

Now, heading into the final two fixtures of the group stages, the 23-year-old is keen to not look too far ahead.

“I am really enjoying my role with the ball,” said Bryce.

“It’s always great when it’s swinging early on. I think that’s a big part of our team game with some good pace bowlers coming on early who get some good movement with the ball, making the most of that where possible.

“At the moment we’re just going to take it day by day.

“We’ll play this game first and see where we are.”
