Southern Brave vs Welsh Fire Match Pitch Report
The pitch at The Rose Bowl is a well-balanced track. The batters love batting here as the ball comes nicely onto the bat. The bowlers will have to work hard to keep a check on the runs while bowling here. Fans can expect a high-scoring affair on Friday
What to expect:
Southern Brave: The Southern Brave, who were the Champions in the inaugural season, had a disappointing outing the last time around, as they managed to win just 3 of the 8 group-stage matches. They finished at a disappointing 7th on the table and will be looking to turn things around.
The team will be led by swashbuckling England batsman James Vince. The Southern Brave has some talented batsmen up the order, including Devon Conway, Finn Allen, and Alex Davies. Tim David, who usually comes lower down the order, has showcased his talent in the recent seasons of the IPL and the MLC and will play a vital role here.
Where the Southern Brave is a bit lacking is in the all-rounders and the spin attack. Mitchell Santner and James Fuller are the only two experienced all-rounders on the squad but they lack consistency, especially with the bat. Santner is also the most experienced spinner on the team and will look for support from youngsters Rehan Ahmed and Jafer Chohan.
The pace attack on the other hand is quite strong. It is an all-English line-up with Jofra Archer, Chris Jordan, Craig Overton, Tymall Mills, and Matthew Fisher peddling their skills.
Southern Brave Key Players
- James Vince – The 32-year-old England international has an excellent record in T20 cricket and in the Hundred. He will be the big wicket that Trent Rockets will want to get early.
- Devon Conway – The New Zealand keeper-batter continues to rack up big scores irrespective of the format or the country of the competition.
- Tymal Mills – The left-arm pace bowler is one of England’s best short-format bowlers. He has been unfortunate with injuries but looks fully fit ahead of this fixture.
Probable XI: Finn Allen, Devon Conway(w), James Vince(c), Leus du Plooy, George Garton, Tim David, James Fuller, Chris Jordan, Rehan Ahmed, Craig Overton, Tymal Mills
Southern Brave Squad: James Vince(c), Devon Conway, Finn Allen, Alex Davies(w), Leus du Plooy, Rehan Ahmed, Tim David, George Garton, Chris Jordan, Craig Overton, Tymal Mills, James Fuller, Matthew Fisher, Joe Weatherley, Jofra Archer
Welsh Fire: The Welsh Fire had a disappointing outing last season as they failed to win a single match out of the 8 they played. As a result, the team finished at the bottom of the points table.
They have made a few changes to the squad and will hope to perform better.
The team will be led by Tom Abell and has quite a few quality batsmen in their line-up. In addition to Abell, we are likely to see Glenn Phillips and Steven Eskinazi at the top of the order. Johnny Bairstow will be a key player lower down the order and will bat alongside all-rounders Roelof van der Merwe and David Willey.
Welsh Fire has strengthened its pace attack by bringing in Pakistan speedsters Shaheen Shah Afridi and Haris Rauf, who will join Jake Ball and George Scrimshaw.
However, the team is lacking when it comes to spinners as Van der Merwe is the only quality option available. Also, some of the players aren’t likely to join until later in the season.
Welsh Fire Key Players
- Luke Wells
- Joe Clarke
- Glenn Phillips
- Shaheen Afridi
- Haris Rauf
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

Southern Brave vs Welsh Fire Match Both Team Top Batsmen
Our batting tips are James Vince, Devon Conway, and Tim David for Southern Brave. Vince has captained Southern Brave in both the previous seasons and he leads from the front at the top of the order. David is a very attacking batter who plays the role of ‘finisher’ in the side.
The squad this year is very very exciting. With the batting being taken care of by hard hitters like Joe Clarke and Glenn Phillips, Captain Tom Abell is a solid player too. Their middle order is being shouldered by Stephen Eskinazi and will provide them with much-needed stability.
Southern Brave vs Welsh Fire Match Both Team Top Team Bowlers
We are backing Chris Jordan, Craig Overton, and Tymal Mills with the ball for Southern Brave. Overton has an excellent short-format record at the domestic level in England. Jordan performed in the IPL this year and has some excellent variations.
However, their bowling is their strongest suit, with the injection of a heavy Pakistani contingent, in Shaheen Afridi and Haris Rauf, the Welsh Fire will hope it will be enough support for David Willey. A lot will be expected of them and they will want to deliver as well.
