Birmingham has a cool and breezy climate which will be ideal for the game. We expect no rain or weather interruptions in this match.
Birmingham is a good batting pitch, and the batters will enjoy the ball coming onto the bat nicely. We expect the average scores to be around 140-150 runs in this match. Bowlers will enjoy the early movement with the new ball on this track.
Chasing will be the most preferred option with teams batting second having the better success rate in the shorter formats in recent times.
Birmingham Phoenix has a strong team with 4-5 different players contributing to the batting and bowling departments effectively. They also have results to showcase their team`s success so far. They also have a home advantage on their side. Manchester originals rely heavily on the trio of Emma lamb, Sophie Ecclestone, and Deandra Dottin in both the batting and bowling departments of the game. Their other players need to step up to contribute to the team`s cause and help their team win. We expect Birmingham phoenix to continue their winning streak on home soil.
