Manchester Originals are part of three matches as of now and they have won one match, one ended up in a draw and the other one ended up with no result. Manchester is coming to play against Oval Invincibles after scoring a win over Birmingham Phoenix in the previous match. It was a one-sided affair where the batter punished the bowlers on every loose ball and the bowlers controlled the game from the first ball. Jos Buttler scored 43 off 33 balls at a strike rate of 130. On the bowling front, Richard Gleeson, Joshua Little, and Usama Mir picked up two wickets each.
Team management will be confident enough to come on the field with the same players as the previous match.
Predicted Lineup: Philip Salt, Jos Buttler (c & wk), Laurie Evans, Max Holden, Ashton Turner, Paul Walter, Jamie Overton, Usama Mir, Tom Hartley, Joshua Little, Richard Gleeson
Oval Invincibles have shown positivity in their bowling but their batting has a major void and their middle order is struggling to score runs. Manchester Originals has a balanced squad and this is why we predict a win for them on Wednesday.
