Oval Invincibles Preview

Invincibles have 3 victories in 6 games. They haven’t won two games in a row throughout the season. The uncertainty in the form of the middle-order have put them on the 5th place of the points table. Jason Roy is the only batsman who is scoring consistently for the Invincibles. He is 5th on the most runs table of the tournament with 174 runs in 5 innings at a strike rate of 155.35. Skipper Sam Billings has helped Roy in Invincibles’ quest to reach the eliminator but with inconsistency. The hero of the Vitality Blast has 122 runs in 5 innings at a strike rate of 137. 07. Invincibles will need powerpack performances from Colin Ingram, Will Jacks and Lauri Evans. The problem is with the continuous change in the batting order. With only 2 games remaining, Invincibles are still looking for the perfect batting order.

The bowling attack has been average for the Invincibles. All have been economical but finding it hard to take wickets. Tom Curran is the leading wicket-taker for the Invincibles with 7 wickets in 104 balls. Caribbean Sunil Narine has 6 wickets so far. He hasn’t been good with the bat either. He took 3 wickets in the last game for 11 runs in 10 balls. Therefore, he will make it in the team no matter how he performs. Saqib Mahmood, who recently made his international debut is having a season to forget. 5 wickets in 5 matches A collective effort is needed from the unit in the must-win game.

Key Players: Jason Roy, Sam Billings, Sunil Narine

Oval Invincibles Predicted Playing XI:

Jason Roy, Will Jacks, Alex Blake, Colin Ingram, Sam Billings (c & wk), Laurie Evans, Sunil Narine, Tom Curran, Tabraiz Shamsi, Reece Topley, Saqib Mahmood

London Spirit Preview

Bradley Wheal’s heroics in the last over gave Spirits their first win of the season Wheal’s 4 for 17 helped Spirits win by 6 runs. Spirits’ key concern is their middle-order. Joe Denly, Eoin Morgan, and Ravi Bopara have failed to keep the scorecard running. The overall batting unit has been poor. Josh Inglis is their leading run-scorer with 99 runs. Opener Adam Rossington has 96 runs in 4 innings. Spirits definitely have to work on their batting order to keep winning.

Mohammad Nabi and Blake Cullen are leading the wickets chart for the Spirits with 6 wickets each. The lacklustre bowling efforts can be seen from the stats that Bradley Wheal who was playing his first game for the Spirits is their third-leading wicket-taker with 4 wickets. Spirits dropped Chris Wood and Mohammad Amir and Brough Wheal Luis Reece in their place. Reece who was added to strengthen both batting and bowling has not done much in the last two games. With very few options on the bench, Spirits can bring Amir back in their second last game of the tournament.

Key Players: Josh Inglis, Blake Cullen, Bradley Wheal

London Spirit Predicted Playing XI:

Adam Rossington (wk), Josh Inglis, Luis Reece, Joe Cracknell, Eoin Morgan (c), Ravi Bopara, Mohammad Nabi, Roelof van der Merwe, Blake Cullen, Bradley Wheal, Mason Crane
