MAO vs LOS Team Previews

Manchester Originals

The Manchester Originals received a 9-run drubbing at the hands of Welsh Fire in a rain-curtailed match. As a result, they are at the bottom of the points table and will be hoping to bounce back in this game.

Jos Buttler, who played during the IPL and the Vitality T20 Blast has carried on with his good form and scored a quick-fire 37 in the first match. He put up a 63-run partnership with Max Holden to stabilize the innings after Manchester lost Phil Salt and Laurie Evans to the first two deliveries of the innings.

However, that wasn’t nearly enough to see the team through. The team does have quite a few all-rounders like Ashton Turner, Jamie Overton, and Paul Walter, who will play an important role in the middle overs.

Coming to the bowling, Josh Tongue and Joshua Little will lead the attack with the new ball. Both were very expensive in the season opener, although Little did pick up 2 wickets. The spin attack is made up of Usama Mir and Tom Hartley. 


Manchester Originals Playing 11

Ashton Turner, Joshua Little, Jos Buttler, Jamie Overton, Laurie Evans, Max Holden, Philip Salt, Paul Walter, Richard Gleeson, Tom Hartley, Usama Mir.

London Spirit

Just like their opponents, London Spirit too isn’t off to the best of starts as they were defeated by the Oval Invincibles. Albeit, theirs was a much closer affair as they lost on the second-last ball of the match.

Adam Rossington and Dan Lawrence were among the top run-getters for London last season and have once again started on a positive note. The duo put up 46 runs for the opening wicket and will be looking to give the team another good start.

Matthew Wade will be the key batsman for the team in the middle order as he can play the big shots with aplomb. The London Spirit has a couple of quality all-rounders in the form of Daryl Mitchell and Ravi Bopara who are capable of adding valuable runs at the end.

Jordan Thompson was the leading wicket-taker for London last season and has started off well by picking up 2 wickets. He will be supported by Nathan Ellis and Daniel Worrall in the seam department, while Matthew Critchley and Liam Dawson will lead the spin attack.

Pitch and Conditions

The pitch at Old Trafford is well-balanced and we can expect an even contest between the bat and the ball. The average first-inning score on this ground is around 140, which is a par score. The quicker bowlers can be taken for runs, especially if they miss the proper line.

However, there will be some amount of assistance on offer for the spinners. We can expect a few delays due to rain. 


MAO vs LOS Betting Tips

Both teams are off to a losing start and will give their 100% to get back to winning ways. We feel that London Spirit has an edge over the hosts in this match. They have a strong opening pair and the batsmen lower down the order are capable of giving them a good finish. The visitors also have a strong bowling attack, which will be a big advantage.

Bet on London Spirit to win.
