The Hundred Cricket Tips & Predictions: Birmingham Phoenix v Southern Brave (Saturday 18:30 BST)
Birmingham Phoenix and Southern Brave will battle it out at Lord’s on Saturday in the Final of The Hundred. I have to admit when I witnessed the Phoenix become the first team to be bowled out for under 100, I honestly didn’t think they would be in the Final. They then lost their next game against Southern Brace, but since then they have won five games in succession and ended up top of the league ladder. The Brave, who beat the Phoenix by four wickets at the end of July, ended the regular season in second place and had to battle it out against Trent Rockets in an eliminator. The Brave opted to bowl first on Friday, they then reduced the Rockets to 96 all-out with George Garton and Tymal Mills taking three wickets each. That target was never going to be enough for the Rockets, and the Brave came home with 32 balls to spare as James Vince top-scored with an unbeaten 45 from 27 balls. Despite not being impressed with them earlier on, I am backing the Phoenix to win this, and all because of one man – Liam Livingstone. The England international is a magician in the white ball game. He smashed 10 sixes in his unbeaten 92 against Northern Superchargers on Tuesday. He has scored 302 runs this season with three half-centuries and 23 sixes. I am backing him to show his class again and top score for the Phoenix on the way to victory. When it comes to the Brave batting, I am backing skipper Vince to have a calm head and get his team to a decent total – I just don’t think it will be enough.
