Western Storm, one of the favourites of the competition, will begin their 2019 KSL campaign when they face Loughborough Lightning. The team led by Heather Knight finished as runners-up in the previous season after winning the 2017 edition title. Smriti Mandhana was the standout performer during the previous season for them. The Indian batswoman loves playing in England and also against the England bowlers as her record suggests.

Another Indian, Deepti Sharma will make her first appearance in an overseas league by representing the Western Storm. On the other hand, the Loughborough team is led by Georgia Elwiss. The Lightning has an interesting to-order with Amy Jones, Hayley Matthews, Chamari Atapattu and Mignon du Preez batting in the top four. Kirstie Gordon stood out as the leading wicket-taker in the 2018 KSL having picked up 17 wickets.
