Manchester Originals

  • The 24th schedule of ‘The Hundred’ campaign will see Manchester Originals throwing away a gripping challenge for the London Spirit in the Emirates Old Trafford, Manchester. The preceding schedule for the Originals’ was not able to go on floor due to heavy spells of rain. Carlos Braithwaite led side is presently placed at fifth in the table carrying possession of six points to their name. The home side of the evening managed to win two of their five match’s line-up where two of the schedules were scrapped naming rainstorm.

  • Manchester will be looking forward to making up the lost ground and elevating their leaderboard standings with Tuesday’s fixture. The Manchester based franchise emblazons a balanced playing XI with the likes of star overseas players in Carlos Braithwaite, Colin Munro and Lockie Ferguson and all are in brilliant touch. Talking about bowling expertise, Steven Finn and Mathew Parkinson have troubled opponents with their pace variation and disciplined bowling tactics.  

London Spirit

  • Reeling at the bottom of the table, London Spirit is still seeking for an introductory win in the 100-balls experimented ECB’s brainchild. Eoin Morgan led franchise played their preceding event against Northern Superchargers and succumbed to a demeaning 63 runs defeat. Overall the challenger team pop-up for five schedules and four of the fixtures surfaced in lost column while one of the combat was washed-out due to enduring drizzle.

  • Spirit paraded several T20 superstars in the team line-up but none of the celebrated arsenals performed as per the perceived expectations. Skipper Eoin Morgan and Josh Inglis are the key performers with the bat for London Spirit whereas Mohammed Nabi is cited as the star all-rounder. For bowling duties, Mohammad Amir and Blake Cullen ferry the caliber to snatch-away momentum from any mighty opponent. Spirit needs to exhibit elevated game-play against Originals’, as one lose game will hinder their play-off qualification.    


Topbets Prediction

Both of the win-seeking sides will miss a couple of English players in the team combination ahead of Tuesday’s face-off. However, this single feed can swell the extent of problems for the Morgan led side and their win-snaring tactics may stretch further. On the other hand, home advantage will prove a big boost for Manchester Originals and expect them to carve-out an easy win against depleted London Spirit. The two-faced pitch at Old Trafford can boost the morale of spinners and overcast conditions may benefit quick-gun as well. Batsmen need to play a cautious version of cricket and expect the competitive total in these circumstances to mount around 130-140 runs.
