Teams Preview

Birmingham Phoenix Preview

Birmingham Phoenix represents Warwickshire County in the tournament. A seasoned player and former New Zealand Captain, Daniel Vettori is the head coach, and England’s allrounder bowler Moeen Ali is leading Phoenix this season. The team has failed to impress with their performance till now and are expected to change their strategies and approach in the upcoming matches. There have been a few weaker links in the Birmingham Phoenix batting unit. The opening pair of Finn Allen and Daniel Bell-Drummond hasn’t been able to provide the team with explosive starts. Moeen Ali could be an effective choice as an opening batsman due to his hard-hitting abilities. Liam Livingstone and Miles Hammond have been phenomenal with their batting and have given the required support to the batting lineup. Daniel Bell-Drummond can be an excellent anchor and bring stability to the lower middle order. 

Adam Milne will lead the pace attack for the Phoenix. He had wreaked havoc on the Southern Braves in their previous match by claiming 3 wickets for just 15 runs. Phoenix has an excellent spin trio in this squad, Moeen Ali, Imran Tahir, and Benny Howell. The spin attack has been successful in keeping the opposing batsmen under pressure. Tom Helm and Liam Livingstone add to the bowling strength

Key Players: Moeen Ali, Liam Livingstone, Miles Hammond, Adam Milne, Imran Tahir.

Birmingham Phoenix Predicted Playing XI:

Finn Allen, Moeen Ali (c), Liam Livingstone, Miles Hammond, Daniel Bell-Drummond, Chris Benjamin, Chris Cooke, Benny Howell, Imran Tahir, Adam Milne, Tom Helm.

Trent Rockets Preview

Trent Rockets has been one of the most formidable teams of the season. They haven’t lost a match in the tournament till now and captain Lewis Gregory would want to continue with this winning streak in the tournament. Due to the unavailability of Stephen Fleming, Andy Flower is the head coach for the Rockets. Trent Rockets has one of the best opening pairs, D’Arcy Short and Alex Hales. Both the batsmen have been in their best form and have consistently scored runs till now. Dawid Malan, Samit Patel, and Lewis Gregory form the batting middle order. The middle-order looks strong on paper but has lacked stability, this could be a cause of concern in the Rockets camp. Tom Moores and Rashid Khan have the ability to hit the bowl out of the park at the end of the innings.

Rashid Khan is the primary bowler in the Rocket’s bowling unit. His ability to turn the ball and deceive the batsmen will be even more effective at Edgbaston due to its spin-favouring conditions. Marchant de Lange is expected to lead the pace attack. Matthew Carter, Samit Patel, Luke Wood are other bowlers to watch out for.

Key Players: D’Arcy Short, Alex Hales, Dawid Malan, Lewis Gregory, Rashid Khan, Matthew Carter.

Trent Rockets Predicted Playing XI:

D’Arcy Short, Alex Hales, Dawid Malan, Samit Patel, Lewis Gregory (c), Tom Moores, Rashid Khan, Luke Wood, Matthew Carter, Marchant de Lange, Timm van der Gugten.
