The Hundred 2022

Welsh Fire vs Southern Brave, 22nd Match Preview: Pitch Report, Live Streaming, Predicted Playing XI

Welsh Fire are languishing at the bottom of the table and are yet to open their account.

Welsh Fire (WEF) will be facing Southern Brave (SOB) in the 22nd match of The Hundred Men 2022 tournament at Sophia Gardens in Cardiff on Monday.  Both teams have lost four games and are placed at the bottom two spots in the league table. Welsh fire are yet to open its account, while Southern Brave have managed to earn a solitary win. Both teams would desperately want to register a win and we can expect the clash to be a cracker of a game.

Welsh Fire

Welsh fire‘s batting unit has not fired in unison resulting in consecutive losses. In their last match, Jake Ball’s four-for restricted Originals to 149. But the batters stumbled on just 102 runs with Dwaine Pretorius being the highest run-getter, scoring 29 runs. The Josh Cobb-led side needs to put on an improved batting show if they need to get their first win of the tournament.

Predicted Playing XI: Joe Clarke (wk), Tom Banton, Sam Hain, Ben Duckett, David Miller, Dwaine Pretorius, Josh Cobb (c), Matt Critchley, David Payne, Jake Ball, Noor Ahmad.

Welsh Fire Squad: Joe Clarke(w), Tom Banton, Sam Hain, Ben Duckett, David Miller, Josh Cobb(c), Matthew Critchley, Dwaine Pretorius, David Payne, Jake Ball, Ryan Higgins, Leus du Plooy, George Scrimshaw, Matt Milnes, Noor Ahmad, Jacob Bethell

Southern Brave

The defending champions are looking like a pale shadow of what they were last season. They suffered a huge 68-run defeat against the Originals in the last match which saw Originals smashing the third highest score of the season. In response, the Brave was bundled out for 120. The batting superstars like skipper James Vince, Quinton de Kock, and Tim David need to come to the party if have to revive their Hundred’s campaign.

Predicted Playing XI: Quinton de Kock (wk), James Vince (c), Paul Stirling, Alex Davies, Tim David, George Garton, Ross Whiteley, James Fuller, Jake Lintott, Dan Moriarty, Michael Hogan
