Birmingham Phoenix would look to continue with their good form as they take on the Northern Superchargers at home in the 19th game of The Hundred, 2022. The Phoenix come into this game with a big win against the Trent Rockets and they would feel confident playing at home. The Northern Superchargers are struggling with their form and lost to London Spirit in the last game.  

Birmingham Phoenix has held their fort strongly and they have never lost a game at their home ground. This would add to the side’s confidence as they look to move up on the points table with a good show in this game. The Northern Superchargers must win this one to stay alive in the tournament and it remains to be seen how they perform here.    

Birmingham Phoenix Preview

Moeen Ali would feel confident with the form of his side. They have won the last three games and look in good form. It was a commanding win for the side as they defeated the Trent Rockets by 7 wickets in the last game. Playing at home the side knows the conditions well and shall look to make good use of it.  

Will Smeed has done well in the tournament, and he would look to set up a good opening wicket stand with Miles Hammond in this game. Moeen Ali comes here with runs under his belt and makes the middle order strong with Liam Livingstone and Matthew Wade. They would also expect runs from Chris Benjamin, Benny Howell, and Tom Helm who are good hitters of the ball.    

Moen Ali and Imran Tahir are experienced bowlers, and the pair shall look to strike early in this game. Tom Helm, Timm van der Gugten, and Henry Brooks will look to keep the scoring rate under check in the middle overs. Benny Howell was brilliant in the last game and adds to the side’s bowling options along with Livingstone.

Birmingham Phoenix Predicted Playing XI:

Moeen Ali (c), Miles Hammond, Will Smeed, Liam Livingstone, Matthew Wade (wk), Chris Benjamin, Benny Howell, Tom Helm, Henry Brookes, Timm van der Gugten, Imran Tahir

Northern Superchargers Preview

Three losses in a row have dented the campaign for Faf du Plessis’ side. It has been a string of ordinary performances from the side, and they went down against London Spirit by 7 wickets in the last game. The side desperately needs to win this one to stay in the hunt for a place in the next round. It would be a tough challenge and du Plessis shall need to lead from the front in this game.  

Faf du Plessis played a good knock in the last game, and he will need to set up a good opening wicket partnership with Adam Lyth. Their middle order hasn’t contributed much so far, and the side would need runs from David Willey, Harry Brook, and Michael-Kyle Pepper in this game. Adam Hose and Roelof van der Merwe shall need to come up with strong performances down the order.  

Their bowlers were smashed to all parts of the park in the last game. Roelof van der Merwe and David Willey must strike early to put the side in a comfortable position. Dwayne Bravo and Wahab Riaz are experienced bowlers, and it will be a big test for them in this game. Adil Rashid’s lack of form is a concern, and he will need to bowl well along with Craig Miles in this contest. 

Northern Superchargers Predicted Playing XI:

Faf du Plessis (c), Adam Lyth, David Willey, Harry Brook, Michael-Kyle Pepper(wk), Adam Hose, Roelof van der Merwe, Dwayne Bravo, Wahab Riaz, Craig Miles, Adil Rashid

Weather Conditions

The skies over Birmingham would be slightly cloudy on August 19. The wicket is flat, but we have seen the ball stopping on the batsmen and creating doubts in their minds. Bowlers enjoy assistance from the surface. The side batting first in this game shall eye a score of 160 runs or more on this wicket.

Venue Details

Edgbaston, Birmingham has a lively surface and we have seen fast bowlers do well at this venue. The ball comes to the bat nicely allowing batsmen to play their strokes. The outfield is fast, and this helps the batsmen. Spinners must rely on their skills as there isn’t much on the surface for them.

Toss: To Bowl

Chasing scores has been the norm at this venue. The wicket doesn’t change its character across the two innings and having a target score works to the advantage of the side chasing it. Hence, the side winning the toss in this game shall look to bowl first and restrict the opponents to a small total.

Northern Superchargers would feel the heat in this game. They have lost the last three games, and this is their last shot at being in the hunt for the Eliminator round. The side needs to bowl well as their bowlers have been out of form. Birmingham Phoenix is enjoying a good run and they have never lost a game at their home ground. This would make them favorites to win this game.
