Welsh Fire vs Manchester Originals Prediction

We are just a sleep away from the ringing of the bell to kickstart the third edition of the much-anticipated cricket tournament, The Hundred, which is played in a whole new format. The inaugural match will be played between the first and second winners of the tournament, the Trent Rockets and the Southern Brave. 

The second match of the tournament will be played between Welsh Fire and Manchester Originals on Wednesday, August 2, 2023, at 7:30 p.m. IST.

August 2 will be the first doubleheader day of the tournament this year, where these two teams will compete in the afternoon game. Manchester Originals were the runners-up in the last edition of the tournament, whereas Welsh Fire have been nowhere close to the trophy in the initial two years. 

It will be a difficult job for the Welsh Fire team in the first match itself, as their team is slightly inexperienced as compared to other teams. The top bookmakers in India have The Hundred Odds on their platform.

Manchester to win the match against Welsh Fire.

The betting tip is...

Jos Buttler to score 49.5+ runs

Welsh Fire vs Manchester Originals Betting Tips

Even though the match is going to be played at the home ground of Welsh Fire, we predict their opponents will clinch the match away from them. Manchester Originals look better on paper, as they have some good T20 talent on their roster. Welsh fans will miss Jonny Bairstow in the initial matches, but he will be back soon. This is the match both teams would want to win to get a flying start to their campaign in The Hundred 2023, and we predict the Manchester Originals to prevail in this match on Wednesday.

The betting tip is...

Jos Buttler to score 49.5+ runs
