The Hundred Cricket Tips & Predictions
The Hundred Cricket Tips & Predictions: London Spirit v Trent Rockets (Thursday 18:30 BST)
Trent Rockets will be looking to make it three wins from three when they take on the winless London Spirit at Lord’s on Thursday. The Rockets have won both of their games in The Hundred, and they come into this clash on the back of a two-wicket win over Northern Superchargers on Monday. The Superchargers batted first and were bowled out for 132, Rashid Khan produced figures of 3-32 off 20 balls, while Marchant de Lange also took three wickets. It wasn’t the biggest total to chase down, and they made hard work of it as they lost eight wickets. But Alex Hales was the hero for the Rockets as he hit an unbeaten 40 from 34 balls – including a six off David Willey to win the match. London Spirit have played two games, but they have yet to win as they lost their opener against Birmingham Phoenix before seeing their game against Oval Invincibles abandoned without a ball being bowled due to rain. I have been impressed with the Rockets, they have some talent in their batting line-up with Hales, D’Arcy Short and Dawid Malan. They will be without Joe Root as he is on international duty with England, while there will be a lot of pressure on the likes of Rashid Khan and De Lange to take the wickets. I am backing the Rockets to win this one, with Hales once again top-scoring. When the Spirit get to bat, I expect Eoin Morgan to find some form and smash the ball to the boundary to top-score for the Spirit.
The Hundred Cricket Tips & Predictions: Southern Brave v Birmingham Phoenix (Friday 18:30 BST)
Birmingham Phoenix will be looking to bounce back from a terrible performance against Manchester Originals when they travel to The Rose Ball to face the Southern Brave. The Phoenix will always be remembered as the first team to bowled out in The Hundred. They were skittled out for 87 at Old Trafford as they went down by six wickets. The Brave are rock bottom of the standings with two defeats from two matches. They come into this clash on the back of an 18-run loss away against the Welsh Fire. They had to chase down 166 to win the game, but they fell short despite an impressive 40 off 27 balls from James Vince. The Phoenix will be itching to get back on the field after being well below par against the Originals. I am backing the Phoenix to get back to winning ways with Liam Livingstone smashing the ball all around the park to top score for the Phoenix. When the Brave get to the crease, I expect Vince to kick on from his decent knock last time out and again score the most for his time.
