Confident Trent Rockets would be playing the Northern Superchargers at their home ground Trent Bridge, Nottingham in the 7th game of The Hundred. Trent Rockets come into this game with a massive win against the Southern Brave and they would be high on confidence going into this contest. The Superchargers on the other hand went down against the Welsh Fire in the last game.
Trent Rockets have their batsmen in good form and registered a 9-wicket win in the last game. Their bowlers gave nothing away in the last game and this would also serve as a massive confidence booster for the side in this game. It will be interesting to see if the Northern Superchargers are able to bounce back in this game.
Lewis Gregory would be extremely proud of the way his side played in their opening game against Southern Brave. In a one-sided game they batted and bowled well to win comfortably by 9 wickets. As the side plays the next game at home Gregory would want his players to maintain the same form and momentum and strengthen their position for rest of the season with a win in this game.
Alex Hales missed out in the last game and he would look to start the show on a positive note with in-form D’Arcy Short. Dawid Malan also played well in the last game and along with Joe Root and Tom Moores strengthens the middle order for the side. They bat deep with Rashid Khan, Lewis Gregory and Samit Patil having good hitting abilities.
Samit Patel was good with the new ball and shall look forward to troubling the opponents along with Samit Patel. The presence of Rashid Khan in this attack is a big plus for the side as he brings in good skills to the table. The side would also like to see good bowling from Root, Marchant de Lange and Gregory in this game.

It was a heartbreak for Ben Stokes’ side in the last game against the Welsh Dragons. They had the game in their bag but let it slip away toward the end of the innings. Stokes would like to see better efforts on the part of his bowlers in this game as they allowed the opponents to put up a big score in the last game.
Adam Lyth and Chris Lynn did get starts in the last game, but they will have to convert them into big scores here. In the middle order the side has good strength with Stokes and in-form Harry Brook in the side. They would also expect to see fireworks from the likes of David Willey, Tom Kohler-Cadmore and John Simpson in this game.
Their bowling was wayward in the last game and the side would need tight spells from David Willey and Matty Potts sharing the new ball. Mujeeb ur Rahman has to make good use of his experience in the game. With Stokes, Adil Rashid and Brydon Carse in the side, they have good depth in their bowling attack.

The skies over Nottingham would have thick cloud cover on July 26 and this would make the conditions challenging for the batsmen. The track played slow in the last game here and we don’t expect to see much of change in the nature of the wicket. The side batting first would be happy to reach a score of 160 runs on this surface.
Trent Bridge, Nottingham is one of the biggest grounds in 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.
The last game at this venue saw the side batting first struggle as there was some movement with the new ball. The wicket doesn’t change much in character in the 2nd innings and hence the side that wins the toss here shall have little hesitation in opting to bowl first on winning the toss.
Northern Superchargers struggled with their bowling in the last game and this is the area they will have to improve going into this game. Their batsmen will also have to avoid playing false strokes like they did in the last game. Trent Rockets ticked all the boxes in the last game and have their batsmen and bowlers in good form and this would make them favorites to win this game.
