The 20th game of The Hundred, 2022 promises to be a cracker of a contest. It will be a battle for supremacy as the Trent Rockets take on the London Spirit. The Rickets come into this game with a massive win against the Oval Invincibles at the same ground which will make them confident. London Spirit hasn’t lost a game so far and defeated Northern Superchargers in their last game.
The Trent Rockets have an enviable record at home and have won both the games they have played here this year. They have lost just once at this venue in the past and this would make them confident. London Spirit is enjoying a dream run and they are at the top of the points table. The winner of this game would reach the top spot and we shall see an exciting contest here.
Lewis Gregory’s side ticked all the boxes in the last game against the Oval Invincibles. They set up a big total and bowled well on their way to a 25-run win in the game. The side would face a real challenge here against London Spirit which has shown excellent form. Gregory’s side has a good record at home, and he would want his side to take advantage of it and move to the top of the points table with a win here.
Alex Hales and Dawid Malan have been among the top run-getters, and they played well in the last game. A good show from them would put the side in a commanding position. Colin Munro, Tom Kohler-Cadmore, and Daniel Sams are strong hands in the middle order, and they have done well. Gregory would look to do the big hitting towards the end with Tom Moores and Samit Patel.
Luke Wood has done well this season and he would have to deliver early blows along with Sam Cook as London Spirit have their batsmen in good form. Patel and Tabraiz Shamsi come here with good spells in the last game which will add to their confidence. Sams went for runs against the Invincibles and needs to deliver a better show in this game.

It has been a clean show from Eoin Morgan’s side. They have won all four games and sit at the top of the points table. It was an incredible run chase from the side in the last game against Northern Superchargers where they won by 7 wickets. Morgan would like his players to maintain the same momentum and win their fifth consecutive game.
Adam Rossington played an electrifying knock in the last game, and he would look to set up a big stand with Daniel Bell-Drummond. Glenn Maxwell played a blinder, and he makes this middle order formidable with Daniel Lawrence and Morgan. Kieron Pollard, Liam Dawson, and Jordan Thompson are clean strikers, and this adds solidity to their batting line-up.
Maxwell and Nathan Ellis did well with the new ball in the last game and they will look to come up with a similar show in this game. Jordan Thompson, Brad Wheal, and Mason Crane would have a tough task at hand given the form we have seen from the Rockets with the bat. Dawson shall need to do well in the role of a supporting bowler in this game.

The skies over Nottingham would be slightly overcast on August 20. The batting conditions looked good in the last game, and we would see a flat surface. The wicket would slow down in the latter overs. The side batting first would need 160 runs on the board to feel safe in this game.
Trent Bridge, Nottingham is one of the biggest grounds in the UK and hence there have been fewer big scores at this venue. Clearing the boundary isn’t easy for the batsmen and there is always assistance for the fast bowlers here. The large size of the ground also allows spinners to toss the ball up and get wickets.
It looked an excellent surface to bat on and setting up a total would be a challenge. Batsmen are likely to fancy their chances of chasing a big total. This format favors the side that chases the score. Hence, we expect the side winning the toss in this game to bowl first and aim at keeping the opponents to a small total.
London Spirit has done well so far winning all their games. The side would face a massive challenge against a strong batting line-up. Their bowlers have to do well for the side to win this game. The Trent Rockets have an excellent record at home. Their openers have provided the side with good starts. This will make them favorites in this game.
