London Spirit is in the 7th position with only one win in the tournament and a net run rate of -0.045.
Welsh Fire witnessed a loss in their previous fixture against their close rivals Trent Rockets. Bowling first, Shaheen Afridi struggled to pick wickets but David Willey, Jake Ball, and Roelof van der Merwe picked up two wickets and controlled the opposition form scoring quick runs.
However, when it came to chasing the score, the Welsh Fire’s batters found themselves in a difficult situation at the start. After the early exit of the opening lineup, Joe Clarke (54 off 34 balls) handled the situation but failed to get any support from the other end.
Stephen Eskinazi, Jonny Bairstow, and Haris Rauf are the key players for the team.
Predicted Lineup: Stephen Eskinazi, Jonny Bairstow, Joe Clarke (wk), Luke Wells, Tom Abell (c), Glenn Phillips, David Willey, Roelof van der Merwe, Shaheen Afridi, Haris Rauf, Jake Ball
The new season of the Hundred has come out as a nightmare for the London Spirit. During the 2022 tournament, the Spirit finished third in the point table but this year they are finding it difficult to turn things around. The primary reason for their weak performances is their below-average bowling lineup. The bowlers are struggling to pick wickets and ease down on the run rate. The middle order has been inconsistent and hence the chase also becomes difficult in a match.
Zak Crawley, Nathan Ellis, and Daryl Mitchell are the key players for the team.
Predicted Lineup: Zak Crawley, Adam Rossington (wk), Daniel Lawrence (c), Matthew Wade, Daryl Mitchell, Michael-Kyle Pepper, Matthew Critchley, Liam Dawson, Chris Wood, Nathan Ellis, Daniel Worrall
We are in for an absolute thriller because both teams are in desperate need of a win and they both are in a close competition. Welsh Fire is a much more balanced team with good depth in the batting unit and the bowlers have done a fair job. We predict a win for Welsh Fire on Sunday.
