London Spirit will march against Manchester Originals in the 6th game of The Hundred 2022 at The Lord’s London. The match is scheduled on 8th August from 11:00 pm. London Spirit have one win in one game. While Originals have lost to SUperchargers in their first game.

London Spirit kept their last season’s failure aside to start the 2022 campaign with a bang against Oval Invincibles. Batting first, LS put a total of 171 runs on the board with skipper Morgan scoring 47 off 29 balls in the middle. Nathan Ellis’ 3 wickets restricted the Invincibles at 168 for the loss of 7 wickets. London Spirit won the game by 3 runs.

Manchester Originals skipper Jos Buttler’s half-century guided his team to 161 for the loss of 4 wickets. But Northern Superchargers overpowered them to chase the target with 6 wickets and 6 balls in hand. Fred Klassen and Mathew Parkinson’s (1 wicket each at 1 run per ball) attempt went in when as Harry Brook punished other bowlers in the end.

In the last season, London Spirit won their only game against the Manchester Originals. Batting first LS scored 142 runs. It was Mohammad Nabi who put a blow to Originals by taking early two wickets. Spirit’s pacer Bradley wheal took 4 for 17 to win the game by 6 runs.

London Spirit Preview

It looks like London Spirit’s have added the remaining pieces to the squad after the first win. Zak Crawly and Adam Rossington will be the openers for LS. Both put a partnership of 32 in fifteen balls. Crawley’s 21 off 11 included 4 fours and showed that you can play ground shots & still score. Rossington knocked out 46 runs in 29 deliveries last season against the Manchester Originals. Glenn Maxwell’s addition to number 3 gave LS the needed stability. Maxwell scored 301 runs in the IPL 2022 at 169.10. 

Daniel Lawrence, Eoin Morgan, and Kieron Pollard scored (92 runs) at a strike rate of 150 in the middle. Morgan alone played a knock of 47 off just 29 deliveries with four fours and 3 sixes. Surely, LS will continue to play the same top and middle order for the remaining games. 

Nathan Elis and Jordan Thompson’s pair created havoc for the Invincibles. The pair took 4 wickets for 12 runs in the first 17 balls. Nathan Ellis removed the dangerous Jordan Cox to take 3 for 28 at the end. Liam Dawson was the most economical in the first game and took the wicket off Tom Curran who was hitting hard at the end. London Spirit’s main problem will be Mason Crane’s spin. Crane gave 41 runs in 20 balls with the wicket of Hilton Cartwright.

Key Players: Adam Rossington, Glenn Maxwell, Nathan Ellis.

London Spirit Predicted Playing XI:

Adam Rossington, Zak Crawley, Dan Lawrence, Glenn Maxwell, Eoin Morgan, Kieron Pollard, Jordan Thomson, Liam Dawson, Brad Wheal, Mason Crane, Nathan Ellis

Manchester Originals Preview

England’s white-ball skipper Jos Buttler scored his second century in the last 14 innings after his international partner Philip Salt got out cheaply on 1. Wayne Madsen added 84 runs in partnership with Butler to take Originals to 100. Though Originals lost their first game, it showed that their top-order can be the game changer once the competition proceeds. 

Andre Russell and Paul Walter in the middle added 52 runs at a strike rate of 173.33. Russell who struggled to adjust to this format initially hit 6 sixes with Walter (3 each) at the end. Russell is being used as an all-rounder by Originals. He bowled 15 balls and took the wicket of dangerous Adam Lyth (51). Originals didn’t utilize Laurie Evans to his potential. The all-rounder played just 1 delivery and didn’t bowl. Butler needs to utilize him in the next game.

Tom Hartley and Sean Abbott, the key Originals bowlers gave 85 runs in 39 deliveries. This probably cost them the game. But Hartley took 3 wickets against Spirit's side in the last season. Hopefully, he will continue his previous season’s form in the next game. Spinner Matthew Parkinson was exceptional with his 20 balls 20 runs for 1 wicket against Superchargers. He will be the Originals’ hope against Spirit as he took 2 wickets against them in the last season by giving just 19 in 20 deliveries.

Key Players: Jos Buttler, Matthew Parkinson, Andre Russell.

Manchester Originals Predicted Playing XI:

Jos Buttler (c), Philip Salt (wk), Wayne Madsen, Laurie Evans, Andre Russell, Ashton Turner, Paul Walter, Sean Abbott, Tom Hartley, Fred Klaassen, Matthew Parkinson

Venue Details

The match between London Spirit and Manchester Originals will be played at The Lords, London. The venue holds a capacity of 30000 spectators. It is the home ground for Middlesex Cricket Club. The venue has hosted 141 Tests, 71 ODIs and 4 Hundred games.

Toss: To Bowl

In all 4 Hundred games played at The Lords, teams have successfully defended the target. Out of these 4, 3 were low-scoring games. Trent Rockets have defended 123 runs on this ground last season. The team winning the toss should bat first.

London Spirit have lost all their games at The Lords in the last season. But things are different now. They have added enough firepower to their squad. The first win of this season was the result of that. But they are still facing issues in the bowling department. A three-run win doesn’t mean everything is in order. Originals batting order can exploit the pace attack and go on the top of Spirit.

We predict that Manchester Originals will defeat London Spirit.
