Birmingham Phoenix vs London Spirit Match Pitch Report
The Edgbaston offers a balanced track. The new ball bowlers may get some purchase from the surface but it settles as the game progresses, assisting the batters who get their eye in. The spinners will come into play in the later stages
What to expect:
Birmingham Phoenix: The men’s team of Birmingham Phoenix will be lying in front of the home crowd in their last game of the competition this year. It has been an extremely disappointing season for the Phoenix men. They could manage only a single victory that came their way from 7 games.
While playing at home, Birmingham Phoenix managed to win one game from the two played after a couple of consecutive losses. It’s not so much about the actual losses but the way Phoenix lost the matches was the real disappointment. It has been a disheartening effort for the Phoenix fans this year.
This performance this year has been a surprise for everyone with the kind of firepower Phoenix has in their ranks. They also have a lot of depth in their batting order. While chasing a target of 163 runs they ended on a score of 116 runs for the loss of 9 wickets from their 100 balls.
This was not expected from them. In another game before that, the Birmingham Phoenix team finished on a score of 119 runs for the loss of 8 wickets while batting first at the venue of The Rose Bowl against the team of Southern Brave men.
These last couple of dismal performances from a capable side after a resounding victory at home is pretty much an indication of the kind of season the Birmingham Phoenix men had this year. The Birmingham Phoenix openers have performed under par this year.
Even when they did succeed in getting off to good starts, their middle let the team down. Even in this game Jamie Smith and Liam Livingstone batting in number 3 and number 4 positions will be critical for getting the team batting order going.
Birmingham Phoenix Key Players
- Liam Livingstone- the all-format England international has not been at his best in the tournament so far but still managed to hit the highest score for Phoenix on Thursday.
- Moeen Ali- the skipper should never be written off, particularly in white-ball cricket. He never lets his previous innings or performance affect his next match.
- Benny Howell- the 34-year-old bowling all-rounder is the most in-form player on this side. He comes into this game after combined figures of 5-37 over the last two games.
- Adam Milne – The New Zealander bowls with a good pace and will enjoy the surface at Edgbaston. He took 2-33 in the defeat against Manchester Originals.
Probable XI: Will Smeed, Ben Duckett, Jamie Smith(w), Liam Livingstone, Moeen Ali(c), Chris Benjamin, Benny Howell, Chris Woakes, Adam Milne, Kane Richardson, Tanveer Sangha, Dan Mousley
Birmingham Phoenix Squad: Ben Duckett, Will Smeed, Liam Livingstone, Moeen Ali(c), Chris Benjamin(w), Jamie Smith, Shadab Khan, Chris Woakes, Kane Richardson, Adam Milne, Tom Helm, Miles Hammond, Henry Brookes, Dan Mousley, Jacob Bethell, Benny Howell
London Spirit: The London Spirit men are going to be disappointed after the loss in their last match. It came at a bad time and a victory here would have made sure that they qualified for the knockout stages of the competition.
However, now they are faced with a difficult do-or-die situation in their last game. Although they are playing the bottom-most team in the competition, they are going to need their A-game to win this contest. Despite having underperformed this year Birmingham Phoenix is a dangerous proposition.
London Spirit will need to have their key players in top form. The London Spirit will require their key team members to be in good form. The London Spirit captain will require their important players to be in good form.
The London Spirit captain Dan Lawrence has struggled in the number 3 position in their recent games and the lack of good form is a bit of a concern for the London men. They have some big guns in their middle and lower middle order such as Matthew Wade, Ravi Bopara, and Daryl Mitchell who are all capable of delivering a good finish.
Another good batsman in the London Spirit lower order is their batting all-rounder Matthew Critchley in the number 7 position. Several good all-rounders are playing in this team which adds a lot of depth to their batting order. Even Liam Dawson is capable of delivering a few balls out of the park during the last overs.
The opening batsman Adam Rossington played a few good innings before he fell in their last innings. If Rossington gets back in form London will be off to a great start and you can expect a good partnership near the top of the order.
London Spirit Key Players
- Zak Crawley – The England Test opener is a naturally aggressive batter and is particularly strong when driving through the off-side.
- Ravi Bopara – At 38 years of age, the batting all-rounder brings the experience of over 450 T20 games to London Spirit. He dismissed Jos Buttler and Paul Walter at Old Trafford on Saturday.
- Liam Dawson – The left-arm spinner has been linked with an England Test recall for next January’s tour of India. He has an excellent domestic whiteball record.
Probable XI: Zak Crawley, Adam Rossington(w), Daniel Lawrence(c), Matthew Wade, Daryl Mitchell, Ravi Bopara, Matthew Critchley, Liam Dawson, Jordan Thompson, Nathan Ellis, Daniel Worrall
London Spirit Squad: Matthew Wade(w), Zak Crawley, Daniel Lawrence(c), Daniel Bell-Drummond, Michael-Kyle Pepper, Adam Rossington, Daryl Mitchell, Ravi Bopara, Liam Dawson, Chris Wood, Mark Wood, Nathan Ellis, Jordan Thompson, Mason Crane, Matthew Critchley, Daniel Worrall

Smeed has not made his usual big impact in this year’s tournament but continues to score runs at a high strike-rate at the top of the order. Duckett has made four scores of 23+ and is not far away from a big score in the competition.
Matthew Wade, Adam Rossington, and Dan Lawrence are our batting choices for the London Spirit. Australian Wade hit the most runs of the top four in the last game at a strike-rate of 183.33. Lawrence got a 2-ball duck in the last match but has impressed in the number three spot in this competition.
