Surrey Stars are heading to Hove on Monday to take part in their second consecutive Kia Super League Finals Day, starting with a semi-final against Western Storm.
Finishing third in the group after five wins, four defeats and one no result from their 10 matches, Stars face second placed Storm for the right to play group winners Loughborough Lightning in the final.
Stars have enjoyed a good record so far against their fellow Finals Day sides, beating Storm both home and away as well victory over Lightning at Guildford.
