Birmingham Phoenix vs Welsh Fire Match Pitch Report

Edgbaston in Birmingham offers a balanced track, with equal assistance to both batters and bowlers. The pacers may find some movement off the deck with the new ball. The batters can play their strokes freely once they get settled in the middle

What to expect: 

Team news:

Birmingham Phoenix: Birmingham Phoenix is coming off a huge 49-run loss against Manchester Originals. Set a target of 161 at Old Trafford, Birmingham was shot out for just 111 in 98 balls.  None of the batters stood up for the team except Liam Livingstone, who scored 27 off 25 balls. 

Livingstone is the most important for Birmingham, which lacks a little depth in the batting unit. He has scored 200 runs in his last 7 matches at an average of 33.33 and a strike rate of 139. He has just come back from an injury but seems to be getting into his groove. He is the batter to watch out for in this match.

Also, keep an eye out for Will Smeed. In the last 10 matches, the opening batsman has accumulated a total of 208 runs, maintaining an average of 23.11 and an impressive strike rate of 158.77.

Birmingham’s bowling looks in much better shape. In the previous game, Benny Howell (3-21 off 20 balls) and Adam Milne (2-33 off 20 balls) were the standout performers. They also have Kane Richardson (13 wickets in the last 9 matches at 8.16) and Tom Helm (15 wickets in the last 10 matches at 8.59) to rely on.

Birmingham Phoenix Key Players

  • Liam Livingstone – The 30-year-old hit two fours and one six in his innings at Old Trafford on Monday. The all-rounder will look to hit the ball over the stands at this venue.
  • 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.
  • Benny Howell – The right-arm medium pacer should get some assistance from the overhead conditions on Thursday and dismissed Laurie Evans, Max Holden, and Paul Walter in the last game.

Probable XI: Will Smeed, Ben Duckett, Moeen Ali(c), Liam Livingstone, Chris Benjamin(w), Dan Mousley, Shadab Khan, Benny Howell, Chris Woakes, Kane Richardson, Adam Milne

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

Welsh Fire: In their previous game, Welsh Fire was well on course to a straightforward victory against Oval Invincibles after restricting them to 100-6 in a chase of 139. However, Tom Curran’s unbeaten 38 from 18 balls thwarted their charge, and the match eventually ended in a tie. 

Opener Joe Clarke top-scored for the team with an unbeaten 69 from 46 balls. He now has 171 runs from his last 10 matches. Unfortunately, none of the other batters made an impression. In fact, that’s been a problem for Welsh Fire this season so far. Apart from Clarke, fellow opener Luke Wells is the only batter to have stood out with 93 runs from 3 innings at a strike rate of almost 190.

A lot is expected from the likes of Stevie Eskinazi and Glenn Phillips but they have failed to deliver so far. 

Welsh Fire’s bowling attack, however, is formidable. Shaheen Shah Afridi and Haris Rauf have made a strong impact on the tournament, taking 5 and 3 wickets, respectively, in Fire’s first 3 games. Moreover, David Payne and David Willey are part of the lineup, having taken 2 and 3 wickets, respectively, in the current season. It’s worth noting, however, that their economic rates have been relatively steep.

Welsh Fire Key Players

  • Joe Clarke – The England hopeful had a poor start to the tournament with successive ducks but he showed his class in the last game with 10 boundaries in his unbeaten innings.
  • Ben Green – The 25-year-old all-rounder is building a strong reputation in the short formats. He hit 25 runs and took 2-26 in the tie against Oval Invincibles.
  • Shaheen Shah Afridi – The Pakistan pace bowler is one of the most exciting new ball bowlers in world cricket. He is always very dangerous in the first over 

Probable XI: Luke Wells, Joe Clarke(w), Glenn Phillips, David Willey, Stephen Eskinazi, Tom Abell(c), David Payne, Roelof van der Merwe, Ben Green, Haris Rauf, Shaheen Afridi

Welsh Fire Squad: Jonny Bairstow(w), Luke Wells, Joe Clarke, Tom Abell(c), Glenn Phillips, David Willey, Chris Cooke, Roelof van der Merwe, Jake Ball, Shaheen Afridi, Haris Rauf, Daniel Douthwaite, George Scrimshaw, Stephen Eskinazi, Ben Green, David Payne

Birmingham Phoenix vs Welsh Fire Match Both Team Top Batsmen

For Birmingham Phoenix, Will Smeed, Liam Livingstone and Ben Duckett are our batting picks. Duckett has had good form in this tournament in spite of previously playing for Welsh Fire who were the worst side. Smeed hit a six before being dismissed against Manchester Originals.

For Welsh Fire, Joe Clarke, Stephen Eskinazi and Luke Wells are our tips with the bat. Opening the batting, Wells has impressed in this season’s tournament with scores of 57, 24, and 12. Eskinazi is a white-ball specialist in the top order.

Birmingham Phoenix vs Welsh Fire Match Both Team Top Team Bowlers

Benny Howell, Adam Milne, and Kane Richardson are our choices for Birmingham Phoenix’s top bowlers. Australian Richardson is a very experienced and successful short-format bowler. Milne has played plenty of T20 games in the UK and dismissed Phil Salt on Monday.

We recommend Shaheen Shah Afridi, Haris Rauf, and David Payne with the ball for Welsh Fire. Payne has picked up a wicket in both of the last two games against Southern Brave and Oval Invincibles. Rauf is one of the most consistent right-arm pace bowlers in white-ball cricket.
