33 games are done, and we are in the final of The Hundred, 2022. Two of the best sides in the tournament shall battle it out in this game. It will be a battle of nerves between the Trent Rockets and the Manchester Originals. The Trent Rockets qualified for the final as the table toppers in the league stage. The Originals defeated the London Spirit in the Eliminator to book a berth in this game.
Trent Rockets have their openers in great form, and this is a major confidence booster for the team. In a high-pressure contest, a good start from their openers can seal the deal for the team. It won’t be easy against the Manchester Originals who come here with six consecutive wins. The two sides have performed exceptionally in the season, and we expect a good show from them.
Lewis Gregory’s side comes into this game with its confidence high. They have their key players in good form and topped during the league stage. They had defeated the Manchester Originals earlier in the season in a high-scoring contest. The stakes would be high in this game and Gregory who leads a strong bunch of players shall like to see his key players deliver the goods here.
Alex Hales and Dawid Malan have been in excellent form, and they have provided the side with good starts. A similar show would be needed from them here. The middle order is strong, and the side would like to see Tom Kohler-Cadmore, Daniel Sams and Colin Munro score runs like they have done earlier in the tournament. Gregory adds to the side’s batting depth with Tom Moores and Samit Patel.
Luke Wood and Sam Cook have delivered early wickets with the new ball and the pair shall look to do the same against Manchester Originals’ top order. Patel and Daniel Sams are experienced bowlers, and the side would like to see them excel in this game. Rashid Khan is likely to come into the team and he would look to guide his side to a title win.

Laurie Evans’ team continues with its grand show in the tournament. They defeated the London Spirit by 5 wickets in the last game to book a berth in this game. It was their sixth consecutive win in the tournament. They had defeated the Trent Rockets in the league stages and the side would look to repeat the same magic here.
Phillip Salt and Evans come here with a confident performance in the last game. The pair shall look to set up a good opening wicket stand in this game. In the middle order, they have good players in Wayne Madsen, Tristan Stubbs, and Ashton Turner and they will need to play good knocks. The side would also like to see runs from the bats of Tom Lammonby and Tom Hartley in this game.
Joshua Little and Tom Hartley will need to bowl better lines than what they have done given the kind of opposition they are up against. Tristan Stubbs, Gleeson, and Paul Walter have displayed good form and the side would expect to see tight spells from them. Matthew Parkinson and Lammonby add to the side’s bowling options.

There is a forecast for slightly overcast skies over London on September 03. Batting conditions would be challenging in this game and the bowlers would enjoy the conditions in this game. The side that bats first in this game would like to have 150 runs on the board to feel confident in this game.
Lord’s London is one of the best venues in this format for the fast bowlers. They get the ball to move. Batsmen who spend time on the crease have done well at this venue in the past. There isn’t much on this track for the spinners as the ball doesn’t turn much and they have to rely on their variations.
In the last two games played here the side chasing the score has won the game. In this format, the side batting second always had an advantage. The fresh wicket at Lord’s poses a challenge for the batsmen. Hence, the side winning the toss here shall have little hesitation in bowling first.
Manchester Originals come here riding on momentum. Their batsmen have displayed excellent form in the lead-up to this game. Their performance with the ball hasn’t been great and the side lacks depth in this department. The Trent Rockets have flourished with the bat and have a strong bowling attack. This would make them favorites in this game.
