Welsh Fire vs Trent Rockets Match Pitch Report
The surface at Sophia Gardens is a balanced track. The pacers may get some extra zip off the surface in the initial part of the match. The surface settles as the game progresses and becomes good for batting in the second half.
What to expect:
Welsh Fire: It was a disastrous show from Tom Abell’s side in the last game against Southern Brave. They put up only 87 runs on the board batting first and went down by 9 wickets. Key players on this side have been in poor form, hurting their campaign. Abell would like to get the best performance out of his players in this game.
Stephen Eskinazi has scored runs and will look to give a positive start along with Jonny Bairstow. The middle order has good hitters, and the side would expect runs from Joe Clarke, Abell, and Glenn Phillips. David Willey, Ben Green, and Roelof van der Merwe must add quick runs towards the end of the innings.
Shaheen Afridi is the best bowler in the side, and he must pick early wickets, sharing the new ball with David Willey. Roelof van der Merwe, David Payne, and Haris Rauf haven’t been consistent, and they must bowl well. The side will also need a better show from Ben Green and Phillips in the supporting role.
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
Trent Rockets: After making a winning start against the Southern Brave in the season opener, the defending champions were forced to share points with Birmingham Phoenix in their most recent fixture, due to inclement weather. Trent is currently 3rd on the points table.
It was a heartbreaking loss for Lewis Gregory’s side in their last game against London Spirit. Chasing 196 to win, their batsmen put up a great performance, only to fall two runs short of the target. Gregory would like his men to put the upset behind them and come up with a better show with the ball to win this game.
Alex Hales and Dawid Malan have batted poorly in the last few games, and the side would need a good show from them in this contest. Tom Kohler-Cadmore, Joe Root, and Colin Munro batted well in the last game. They make the middle order formidable. Gregory and Daniel Sams are good hitters who add firepower to this line-up.
Their bowlers must come out of the poor show in the last game. The side will need good spells with the new ball from Luke Wood and Sam Cook. Daniel Sams and Ish Sodhi have a lot of experience and must do well to keep the scoring under check. Gregory and Root add variety to this attack.
Trent Rockets Key Players
- Dawid Malan – The left-handed all-format batter had a strong T20 Blast tournament for Yorkshire Vikings earlier this year and is a brilliant pacer of his innings.
- Tom Kohler-Cadmore – The keeper-batter has added plenty of overseas experience in this format over recent years. His top score in short-format cricket is 127.
- Sam Cook – The right-arm fast-medium bowler will be looking forward to bowling with cloudy overhead conditions. He gets a swing in most games he plays.
Probable XI: Alex Hales, Dawid Malan, Tom Kohler-Cadmore(w), Colin Munro, Sam Hain, Lewis Gregory(c), Imad Wasim, Daniel Sams, Matthew Carter, Luke Wood, Sam Cook
Trent Rockets Squad: Dawid Malan, Alex Hales, Joe Root, Tom Kohler-Cadmore(w), Colin Munro, Sam Hain, Lewis Gregory(c), Rashid Khan, Samit Patel, Daniel Sams, Luke Wood, Brad Wheal, Matthew Carter, Tom Moores, Sam Cook, John Turner

Welsh Fire vs Trent Rockets Match Dream11 Fantasy Team
Wicket-keeper: Jonny Bairstow, Joe Clarke
Batters: Stephen Eskinazi, Alex Hales, Tom Kohler-Cadmore, Joe Root
All-rounders: David Willey, Daniel Sams
Bowlers: Shaheen Afridi, Haris Rauf, Luke Wood
Welsh Fire vs Trent Rockets Match Both Team Top Batsmen
Jonny Bairstow, Stephen Eskinazi, and Joe Clarke are our tips with the bat for Welsh Fire. Clarke has played across most of the biggest T20 leagues over the last few seasons. Bairstow faced criticism for his wicket-keeping during the Ashes but his batting ability has never been questioned over the last 18 months.
We recommend Joe Root, Alex Hales, and Dawid Malan to be the top batters for Trent Rockets. Hales retired from international cricket the last week and is now fully focused on performing in leagues like The Hundred. Malan has scored 60 scores of 50+ in T20 cricket.
Welsh Fire vs Trent Rockets Match Both Team Top Team Bowlers
Shaheen Shah Afridi, Haris Rauf and David Payne are our bowling picks for Welsh Fire. Left-arm pace bowler Afridi has taken 6 wickets from 80 balls across the 2023 Men’s Hundred. Rauf is one of the most consistent short-format bowlers over the last 12 months.
We are backing Luke Wood, Ish Sodhi and Sam Cook are our bowling choices for Trent Rockets. Medium fast bowler Cook dismissed Adam Rossington and Dan Lawrence in Saturday’s defeat. Sodhi gets plenty of turn on any surface and will do so again in this match.
