Match Details to Note
Match: Southern Brave vs Welsh Fire Men’s Hundred
Date: August 4, 2023 (Friday)
Time: 11:00 PM IST
Venue: The Rose Bowl – Southampton.
In the Men’s Hundred, Southern Brave got off to a bad start by losing to Trent Rockets after being bowled out for 127 runs, six runs less than the Rockets’ total. The Brave, who are unique for Nottingham, will be unhappy with how they crumbled in the face of strong bowling on a field that wasn’t ideal for batting. Going forward, the middle order will need to demonstrate noticeably more toughness, and in the Ageas Bowl, greater contributions will be required from players like captain James Vince, not to mention Devon Conway and Tim David.
Jofra Archer, Tim David, Alex Davies, George Garton, Chris Jordan, Jake Lintott, Tymal Mills, Craig Overton, Paul Stirling (replaces Marcus Stoinis while on international duty), James Vince, Ross Whiteley, Rehan Ahmed, Joe Weatherley, Dan Moriarty, Finn Allen, Michael Hogan, James Fuller (temporary replacement for Quinton de Kock)
Players to watch out for:
He is a right-handed middle-order batter who is also a right-arm medium pace bowler. Vince is a talented batsman who is known for his elegant strokeplay. He is also a useful bowler, who can bowl at a good pace and can take wickets. He is a valuable asset to the team, and he will be hoping to continue his good form in the match to come.
Tymal Solomon Mills is an English international cricketer who currently plays internationally for England and domestically. He is a left-handed fast bowler and a right-handed batsman who plays mainly as a bowler. Mills has been a regular member of the England T20I squad since his debut. He was also part of the England squad that won the 2022 T20 World Cup.
Possible Playing XI:
Devon Conway, Finn Allen, James Vince, Leus du Plooy, James Fuller, Tim David, Craig Overton, Rehan Ahmed, George Garton, Tymal Mills, Matthew Fisher
For the first time since 2021, Welsh Fire won their opening match of the Men’s Hundred. The victory over Manchester Originals lends credence to the long-anticipated prediction that this year would be more successful with Mike Hussey in charge as head coach. Luke Wells scored 57 runs off just 23 balls as the opener in a contest that was reduced to 40 balls a side. When Welsh Fire reached 94/3 on the scoreboard, the bowling superstars took control. Shaheen Shah Afridi claimed two wickets in his first two balls, while Haris Rauf continued to be an incredibly economical bowler. The Fire ultimately prevailed by nine runs.
Jonny Bairstow, Tom Abell, David Willey, Shaheen Afridi, Joe Clarke, Glenn Phillips, Ben Green, Haris Rauf, David Payne, Roelof van der Merwe, Jake Ball, Stephen Eskinazi, Dan Douthwaite, George Scrimshaw, Luke Wells, Chris Cooke
Players to watch out for:
One of the biggest threats to Manchester Originals will be Jonny Bairstow, the outstanding England wicketkeeper-batsman. He would be coming back from the Ashes, where he had used the Bazball tactic to play a few useful knocks. On October 5 during the Hundred Men’s Competition, Bairstow will have the opportunity to switch over to white-ball mode and start getting ready for the World Cup 2023 in India. Bairstow scored 4311 runs overall in 181 T20 games with an average of 30.35.
Left-arm fast bowler Shaheen Shah Afridi of Pakistan reached the milestone of 100 Test wickets in the first match of the series against Sri Lanka in Galle. The 23-year-old Afridi gathered 99 wickets in 25 Tests at the same venue last year before sustaining a knee injury that required him to miss time. He is ready and eager to pick up wickets in the Men’s Hundred right now.
Possible Playing XI:
Jonny Bairstow, Glenn Phillips, Ollie Pope, Tom Abell (C), Luke Wells, Stephen Eskinazi (WK), David Willey, Roelof Van Der Merwe, Jake Ball, Haris Rauf, Shaheen Afridi.

Southern Brave vs Welsh Fire Match Prediction
It’s simple to presume that Welsh Fire will enter this match against a team coming off a loss with the momentum of a victory. However, Southern Brave are predicted to be a much tougher opponent on their home field, so it wouldn’t be shocking if those top-line Brave batters who struggled on Tuesday succeed this time around. Welsh Fire’s batting depth hasn’t been put to the test yet after that hurried match against the Originals, and they risk failing against a side that is well-prepared to compete in this setting on a bigger field. So, bet on Southern Brave to score two points.
We are predicting Southern Brave to win the game at the odds of 1.70
