BIP vs LOS Match Prediction & Betting Tips - Aug 24, 2023

The men's team of London Spirit will take on the men's team of Birmingham Phoenix tomorrow at the Edgbaston. This is the 32nd and last game of the league stage of The Hundred competition for the 2023 season. A victory in this match will push London Spirit into the top 4 of the points tally and keep them in the race for the playoffs. The home team in this game is Birmingham Phoenix who are already out of the race for a place in the playoffs. They could manage just a single victory from their 7 games played so far and are currently lying right at the bottom of the points table. 

The only victory achieved by the home team came in their last game at home when they successfully defended a score of 160 runs. Birmingham Phoenix has a powerful batting order with players such as Ben Duckett, and Will Smeed playing near the top of the order. They have Moeen Ali and Liam Livingstone in their middle order. Despite this power-packed line-up Phoenix failed to make an impact on the opposition. Although London Spirit men are going into this game after a loss, they do have a great bowling attack with bowlers such as Liam Dawson, Ravi Bopara, and Daniel Worral in good bowling rhythm.

BIP vs LOS Team Previews

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.

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.
