The Oval Invincibles will host Trent Rocket at Kennington Oval, London. The 22nd game of The Hundred is set to play on August 8th from 7 PM local time. Trent Rockets are having a great run in the new format of the game with 4 victories in their first 5 matches. Invincibles, on the other hand, are struggling and are in desperate search of a win. Oval Invincibles returned empty-handed in their last game against the Birmingham Phoenix. In a run-fest, batting first the Invincibles set a target of 173 runs for the hosts. After a fiery knock from opener Jason Roy (38 off 22 balls), Colin Ingram scored 81 runs in 43 balls with help of 8 fours and 4 sixes. Phoenix chased the target with 6 wickets and 6 balls in hand. Thanks to skipper Moeen Ali’s 49 off 26 balls partnering with opener Will Smeed who contributed with 45 runs in 28 balls in the calculated run chase. Saqib Mohammad took 2 for 34 and was the only decent performer from the bowling unit.

Playing their 5th game, Trent Rockets stopped the Welsh Fireside for 139. Debutant Wahab Riaz picked 4 wickets for 30. It never looked like Rockets were missing their leading wicket-taker of the tournament, Merchant de Lange Fire made a comeback with the early dismissal of Rocket’s debutant D’arcy Short and a bunch of wickets in the middle of the innings. But it was Samit Patel who put an unbeaten stand of 59 runs with skipper Lewis Gregory to award Rockets their 4th win. Patel scored a quickfire 46 runs in 20 balls with 5 sixes. A win against the Rocket can see Invincibles jump to the second spot in the points table. They have to be more careful with the toss and don’t let Rocket chase any target as the visitors have an unbeaten run in chasing. A win at the Kensington Oval can see Rockets jumping close to the Finals berth.

Oval Invincibles Preview

Invincibles started their campaign with a win over Manchester Originals. It looked like Sam Billings will continue his form from the Vitality Blast after scoring 49 runs in the first game. Since then they lost 2 and won 1 game. Slow start and depleted bowling attacks are the main concerns for Invincibles. Jason Roy and Will Jacks are yet to gel with their roles. Roy who is considered as one of the highly destructive players of the format has only 118 runs in 4 innings. Adding salt over that, he has only hit 4 sixes. A stat he will need to forget against the Rocket. The Invincibles are in dire need to change their batting order. Sunil Narine is not justifying the third slot given to his shoulder. If Sam Billings moves up the order, he will get more time to put some respectable score on the board. The inclusion of Colin Ingram gave Invincibles hope in the last game as Ingram returned with 83 runs in 41 balls. The Roy-Billings-Ingram trio can cause havoc against Rockets. Laurie Evans and Tom Curran can keep the scorecard moving for the Invincibles in case the new combination fails.

There are some serious issues with the bowling unit of Invincibles. The entire unit has picked 22 wickets out of 40 so far which are the same as that of three leading wicket-takers from the Rocket side. Sunil Narine’s form has been proving a nightmare for the hosts. Narine has 3 wickets in 4 innings at an average of 32.33. Nathan Sowter can be used in Narine’s shoes. The Middlesex bowler has 69 wickets in the T20 circuit and can provide economical spells in the middle overs.

Key Players: Colin Ingram, Jason Roy, Sam Billings

Oval Invincibles Predicted Playing XI:

Sam Billings (captain), Jason Roy, Colin Ingram, Laurie Evans, Will Jacks, Jordan Clark, Tom Curran, Tabraiz Shamsi, Reece Topley, Saqib Mohammad, Sunil Narine.

Trent Rockets Preview

Except for one hiccup against the Birmingham Phoenix all is well in the Rocket camp. With the batting order galloping runs and the bowling order making the opposition dance, The Rockets have managed to assemble an almighty squad. Their top order consisting of D’Arcy Short, Alex Hales, and David Malan has scored 141, 125, and 142 runs respectively. That is 61% of the total runs scored by the rockets so far. With Samit Patel in the middle order with 93 runs, Rocket will have no trouble in continuing with the same combination against the Invincibles.

After Merchant de Lange left the squad to make space for Wahab Riaz, the bowling unit became more destructive. Riaz took 4 wickets in his first game for the Rockets. He along with Rashid Khan and Matthew Carter will take on the hosts. Khan is the joint leading wicket-taker of the tournament with 8 wickets while Carter has 6 wickets. The Spin duo will be ready to tangle the opposition one more time. Samit Patel who also has 4 wickets can be crucial with his left-arm spin.

Key Players: David Malan, Rashid Khan, Wahab Riaz

Trent Rockets Predicted Playing XI:

Lewis Gregory (captain), David Malan, D’Arcy Short, Alex Hales, Steven Mullaney, Tom Moores, Rashid Khan, Wahab Riaz, Luke Wood, Matthew Carter, Samit Patel.

Toss: To Bowl

In T20Is the team batting first has won the matches on 9 occasions compared to 6 in batting second.  Therefore, the team winning the toss should bat first. Looking at the unbeaten run of Trent Rocket, they will probably bowl first.

The hosts are having a sinusoidal graph in this format. They have a W-L-W-L record so far. On the other hand, Trent Rockets have 4 wins in 5 games. They have all plans working well. The combination of a balanced batting and bowling unit will make it difficult for the hosts to find a positive result at the end.
 

We predict that the Trent Rockets will defeat Oval Invincibles.
