Welsh Fire vs Southern Brave Match Pitch Report

The Sophia Gardens in Cardiff offers a balanced track. The batters can hit through the line once they get set in the middle. The bowlers will have to hit the right areas consistently to avoid damage as they go often on a journey of missing their mark

What to expect: 

Team news:

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

Southern Brave: Southern Brave is coming off a huge 60-run loss against Northern Superchargers. After opting to bowl first, they ended up conceding 201-3 and could manage only 141-5 in their response. 

The team’s batting hasn’t clicked so far. In fact, their top-scorer after 3 matches is bowling all-rounder Chris Jordan (92 runs from 2 matches at a strike rate of 214). Leus du Plooy (75 runs from 3 matches at 129) has had a decent run as well and will need to hold the innings together.

The failures of Devon Conway (35 runs in 3 matches) and Finn Allen (59 runs in 3 matches) have hurt the team. However, they are established and dangerous openers in shorter formats, and we see one of these two leaving a mark in this game.

Tim David, who blasted 40 off 19 balls in the match against Superchargers, is one of the best finishers in world cricket right now. Southern Brave will need him to fire in this match. 

Apart from scoring runs, Jordan has also been among the best bowlers of the side, taking 3 wickets at an economy of just 5.40. Tymal Mills (4 wickets in 3 matches at 8.30) has done a pretty good job too so far.

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 vs Southern Brave Match Prediction

Although there are only two points between the teams ahead of this game, it is Welsh Fire who have looked far superior in the 2023 Men’s Hundred. Southern Brave have plenty of top talent but for whatever reason, they have been unable to go on a winning run. We are predicting a close match with Welsh Fire getting the victory.

We expect Welsh Fire to win this match.

Welsh Fire vs Southern Brave Match Both Team Top Batsmen

Steve Eskinazi, Joe Clarke, and Luke Wells are our batting picks for Welsh Fire. Only Jos Buttler has scored more runs in the 2023 Men’s Hundred so far than top-order batter Wells. Eskinazi’s highest T20 score is 102 not out and he has a strike-rate of 141.83 in that format.

We are backing James Vince, Devon Conway, and Tim David with the bat for Southern Brave. Conway had an excellent IPL earlier this year and has a strong record across all formats in England. David has scored at a strike rate of 165+ in this campaign.

Welsh Fire vs Southern Brave Match Both Team Top Team Bowlers

Shaheen Shah Afridi, David Payne, and Haris Rauf are our bowling choices for Welsh Fire. Left-arm pace bowler Payne picked up the wickets of Moeen Ali and Dan Mousley on Thursday. Afridi is one of the most feared bowlers in short-format cricket with his pace and accuracy.

We recommend Tymal Mills, Rehan Ahmed, and Craig Overton with the ball for Southern Brave. Spinner Ahmed is a very confident young player who will get plenty of turns from this pitch. Overton bowls with a good pace and can move the ball both ways.
