The Hundred Cricket Tips & Predictions: Birmingham Phoenix v Southern Brave (Wednesday 18:30 BST)
Defending champions Southern Brave will be looking to make it two wins from two when they take on Birmingham Phoenix at Edgbaston in The Hundred on Wednesday.
The Brave opened up their account last Wednesday with a nine-wicket hammering over the Welsh Fire.
They put the Welsh side into bat and reduced them to just 107 for the loss of seven wickets with Craig Overton and Chris Jordan both claiming two wickets apiece.
The Brave knocked off that total with 30 balls left to bowl as captain James Vince smashed an unbeaten 71 from 46 balls with eight fours and one maximum.
If Birmingham Phoenix are going to do well this season, then they cannot just rely on Liam Livingstone and Moeen Ali to score the runs.
Livingstone hit 47 and Ali 35 as the Phoenix only managed to score 143 runs against the Trent Rockets. If they are to be competitive, they need to be scoring close to 200 runs.
Chasing just 144 to win, the Rockets got home with three balls to spare as Alex Hales showed he loves this format with 58 from 41 deliveries.
The Brave are a special team, and they will be fighting for the title once again. Vince loves the white-ball format and he will once again show his quality. I am backing him to top score again and hit another half century.
I have already said that Birmingham cannot rely on Livingstone and Ali, but I am backing the latter to top score in vain for the Phoenix.
