London Spirit would look to finish the league stage with a high as they take on Birmingham Phoenix in the 30th game of The Hundred, 2022. London Spirit went down against Oval Invincibles in the last game, and they would like to regain the top spot on the points table with a win here. Phoenix also comes here with a big loss against Manchester Originals which would hurt their confidence.  

The London Spirit is in good form and the side has already made it to the next round. They have enjoyed a great record at their home ground in the past and this would add to the side’s confidence in this game. Phoenix must win this game by a big margin to make it to the next round. There would be pressure on the team, and it remains to be seen how they fare in this contest.

London Spirit Preview

Eoin Morgan would want his side to show consistency in the most crucial phase of the tournament. The side has lost twice in the last three games. They batted poorly in the last game to lose by 6 wickets against the Oval Invincibles. The side is through to the Eliminator round and Morgan would like to see his side finish the league games with a big win here.  

Adam Rossington has been one of the top performers with the bat and he must set up a good opening wicket stand with Ben McDermott. Josh Inglis, Morgan, and Daniel Lawrence will need to do well in the middle order as their opponents have a strong bowling attack. Ravi Bopara brings his experience to the table in the lower middle order, and he will look to add quick runs with Jordan Thompson and Liam Dawson.  

Their bowlers fought well in the last game defending a small total. The side would expect early breaks from Chris Wood and Dawson who have done well as a pair. Nathan Ellis and Mason Crane leaked runs against Invincibles and they must bowl better lines here. Jordan Thompson and Daniel Lawrence complete a good attack for the side. 

London Spirit Predicted Playing XI:

Eoin Morgan (c), Adam Rossington (wk), Ben McDermott, Josh Inglis, Daniel Lawrence, Ravi Bopara, Jordan Thompson, Liam Dawson, Nathan Ellis, Chris Wood, Mason Crane

Birmingham Phoenix Preview

Moeen Ali’s side suffered a crushing defeat in their last game against the Manchester Originals. In what was their worst batting performance of the season, the side folded up for 75 runs losing the game by 79 runs. This has hurt their run rate and the side would need a massive win to have the slightest glimmer of hope in their quest for a place in the Eliminator game.  

The side would need a big partnership from Will Smeed and Miles Hammond and both these players have scored runs this season. Moeen Ali must lead from the front and make runs in the middle order with Chris Benjamin and Matthew Wade. Benny Howell, Brett D’Oliveira, and Ben Dwarshuis are good hitters of the ball, and they will need to come up with an excellent performance down the order.  

Their bowlers would take on a strong batting line-up in this game. Ben Dwarshuis and Kane Richardson will need to strike early in the game. Tom Helm and Henry Brookes went for runs in the last game and they have an important role to play here. Benny Howell, Ali, and Brett D’Oliveira shall have to do well in this game. 

Birmingham Phoenix Predicted Playing XI:

Moeen Ali (c), Miles Hammond, Will Smeed, Chris Benjamin, Matthew Wade (wk), Brett D’Oliveira, Benny Howell, Ben Dwarshuis, Tom Helm, Henry Brookes, Kane Richardson

Weather Conditions

There is a forecast for overcast skies over London on August 30. Batting conditions are expected to be challenging in this weather. Fast bowlers would get the ball to move making it difficult for batsmen. The side batting first in this game shall be happy to have 150 runs on the board.

Venue Details

Lord’s London is a good venue in this format of the game as it balances out between batsmen and bowlers. There is early assistance in the game for the bowlers, but we have seen batsmen do well once they get used to the pace of the wicket. The ball doesn’t turn much on this track and spinners must depend on their skills.

Toss: To Bowl

We had seen a slow surface in the last game and over the past two seasons this has been a difficult track to bat. Chasing sores has always been an easier proposition at this venue. The side winning it shouldn’t have any hesitation in opting to bowl first in this game.  

Birmingham Phoenix would be under immense pressure in this game. Their batsmen had a poor outing in the last game, and they must come up with a better show here. London Spirit can play freely as they have qualified for the next round. This is their home ground, and they know the conditions well. This would make them favorites to win in this game.
