Welsh Fire would look for their first win of the season as they play Southern Brave at home in the 22nd game of The Hundred, 2022. Both sides are staring down the barrel with a string of failures. Welsh Fire went down against Manchester Originals in their last game. The Southern Brave also suffered a big loss against the same opponent.   

Welsh Fire has performed poorly so far, and the side has lost all its games. Their batsmen are in poor form and down on confidence. They need to come up with a better show in this game for them to win. Southern Brave have lost their form and both sides would be eager for a win here and this shall make it an exciting contest.  

Welsh Fire Preview

Josh Cobb’s side is yet to get off the mark. The side has lost all its games and they went down against Manchester Originals by 47 runs. They are out of contention for a place in the Eliminator round. Cobb would look to break out from the string of failures as their opponents also come into this game with their confidence low.      
 
Tom Banton and Joe Clarke have failed in most games. A steady start would be needed from them for the side to do well in this game. Ben Duckett, Sam Hain, and David Miller need to play well, and they would count their chances against the weak bowling attack that Southern Brave has. Joshua Cobb shall look to add quick runs down the order with Dwaine Pretorius and Matthew Critchley.  

David Payne and Jake Ball have failed to make use of the new ball and there would be huge expectations from them in this game. Adam Zampa has been the only bowler to have shown consistency and he would be expected to trouble the Southern Brave batters. Dwaine Pretorius and Matthew Critchley need to do well in the supporting role.  

Welsh Fire Predicted Playing XI:

Josh Cobb (c), Joe Clarke (wk), Tom Banton, Sam Hain, Ben Duckett, David Miller, Dwaine Pretorius, Matthew Critchley, Adam Zampa, David Payne, Jake Ball

Southern Brave Preview

James Vince’s side has struggled this season. The side suffered its fourth consecutive defeat in the last game as they went down against Manchester Originals by 68 runs. The defending champions are almost out of contention for a place in the next round. Vince would fancy his side’s chances in this game as their opponents too have been in poor form.  

James Vince and Quinton de Kock haven’t been at their best and the side would need a strong show from them in this game. They have a strong middle order with Alex Davies, Tim David, and Marcus Stoinis and these players need to show more consistency. They will need to use their depth and runs shall be needed from Ross Whiteley, James Fuller, and George Garton in this game.  

Their show with the ball hasn’t been up to the mark. Michael Hogan and Garton have leaked runs in most games and the side shall need a good show from them. Stoinis shall need to use his experience in this game and bowl good spells with Daniel Moriarty. James Fuller and Jake Lintott also need to bowl better lines than what they have done so far. 

Southern Brave Predicted Playing XI:

James Vince (c), Quinton de Kock (wk), Alex Davies, Marcus Stoinis, Ross Whiteley, Tim David, James Fuller, George Garton, Daniel Moriarty, Jake Lintott, Michael Hogan

Weather Conditions

The skies over Cardiff shall be overcast on August 22 and we might see rains during the game. The wicket would be tricky to bat on, and batsmen shall have to build their innings. Fast bowlers will get the ball to move. The side batting first in the game would be happy to have 150 runs on the board. 

Venue Details

Sophia Gardens, Cardiff helps fast bowlers with the new ball as there is bounce and swing on offer here. Batsmen who get their eyes in have enjoyed good record here in the past. Spinners also do well here as the odd ball tends to stop on the batsmen and creates doubts in their minds.

Toss: To Bat

In the past, we have seen big scores here and sides batting first have won both the games this season. The wicket gets slower as the game progresses making run chase difficult. Both captains would have this on their minds and the side winning the toss is likely to have no hesitation in opting to bat first. 

Both sides find their backs to the wall. Welsh Fire faces a massive challenge as they are yet to win a game. Their batsmen shall have to hit form for the side to put up a challenge against Southern Brave. It hasn’t been any better for Southern Brave in their last four games and they would need runs from their top order. They have big names on the side, and this will put them slightly ahead in the contest.
