The Hundred has reached the knockout stage and three teams remain in with a chance of winning the women's competition for the first time after dual champions Oval Invincibles failed to make it through.
Two-time runners-up Southern Brave have dominated the women's event in their bid to go one better, winning seven of their eight matches to seal an automatic final berth.
The batting brilliance of England internationals Maia Bouchier (264 runs) and Danni Wyatt (236), as well as India's Smriti Mandhana (234) has been key to the Brave's success, with all three ranking in the top five for total runs in the women's competition this season.
With the ball, Georgia Adams has played a starring role, taking 16 wickets from 160 balls - five more than any other player in the women's tournament.
Northern Superchargers struggled to make an impact in the first two seasons of The Hundred, but the Headingley franchise are within touching distance of a first final, having won six of their eight matches to clinch second place.
The Superchargers' batting is built around Australia's Phoebe Litchfield, who has fired a tournament-leading 266 runs from eight innings.
With the ball, Georgia Wareham, Alice Davison-Richards and Linsey Smith have all chipped in with plenty of wickets.
Welsh Fire finished bottom of The Hundred group standings in each of the first two seasons, but a marked improvement this time around has seen them seal third spot and an Eliminator berth.
England's Tammy Beaumont has led the way with 253 runs, bettered only by Bouchier and Litchfield, while South Africa international Shabnim Ismail has starred with the ball, claiming 11 wickets.
