The betting tip is...
Trent Rockets to score 42.5+ in opening session
Trent Rockets have continued their positive form from the last season and this season as well they have come out as one of the strongest teams. Colin Munro, Alex Hales, and Dawid Malan are the key players in the batting lineup. Joe Root has also contributed with his calm and composed batting.
Daniel Sams is a key player in the bowling lineup and he has also played a crucial role in the lower end of the batting lineup. Expectations will be high from Ish Sodhi and Luke Wood for the upcoming match.
Skipper Lewis Gregory won’t be making any changes to the winning combination of the team.
Predicted Lineup: Alex Hales, Dawid Malan, Tom Kohler-Cadmore (wk), Joe Root, Colin Munro, Daniel Sams, Lewis Gregory (c), Samit Patel, Ish Sodhi, Luke Wood, John Turner
The 2023 season of the Hundred has come out as a major disappointment for the Birmingham Phoenix squad. They have been part of 5 matches and two out of those have ended up with no result. Their net run rate is also low and hence things are becoming difficult for the team with every match.
A win against the table-topper Oval Invincibles will be a huge boost for the team and they need to continue the winning momentum for the rest of the tournament.
Team management will be hoping for another win with the same combination of players on Saturday.
Predicted Lineup: Will Smeed, Ben Duckett, Jamie Smith, Liam Livingstone, Moeen Ali (c), Dan Mousley, Chris Benjamin (wk), Benny Howell, Chris Woakes, Adam Milne, Kane Richardson
Birmingham Phoenix have come out as an unlucky team but their recent win will play a crucial role against Trent Rockets.
However, Trent Rockets have a balanced squad and the players are in the right kind of form with a positive frame of mind. We predict a win for Trent Rockets on Saturday.
