NOS vs WEF Team Previews

Northern Superchargers

The Superchargers made a positive start to their campaign, winning its first two completed matches and were one of the frontrunners to qualify for the playoffs. However, they saw a sudden dip in form and have lost 4 consecutive matches in the run-up to this contest. As a result, they have slipped to the 7th place and have no chance of making it through.

As the team plays its last match of the season, the Superchargers will look to salvage some of its pride by winning. Tom Banton and Matthew Short did well with the bat and are among the top run-getters for the team. However, Adam Lyth, who has been opening the batting in the last couple of matches, has struggled to score.

Harry Brook and Adam Hose are two quality players in the middle order, but both of them failed to have a meaningful impact on the proceedings. Adil Rashid had a relatively quiet tournament so far but returned to form in the last match, picking up 4 wickets.

The team will expect him to continue with good momentum. Reece Topley is brilliant with the new ball, picking up 13 wickets, and will have the support of captain Wayne Parnell, David Weise, and Brydon Carse, while Callum Parkinson will bowl in tandem with Rashid.

Welsh Fire

The Welsh Fire is rather inconsistent this season. After back-to-back losses against Southern Brave and Trent Rockets, the team managed to win the match against London Spirit to keep its qualification hopes alive. However, they are not out of the woods yet and if the Welsh Fire lose this match, they will be eliminated.

Stevie Eskinazi is the key batsman for the Welsh Fire as he has scored 150 runs so far at an average of 25.00. He will open the batting for the team along with Johnny Bairstow. The latter had a couple of mediocre outings but played a gritty 40-run knock in the last match and seems to have returned to some form.

In the middle order, no one except for Joe Clarke has done well. Luke Wells, Tom Abell, and Glenn Phillips are all quality players and the team will expect them to play better. Matt Henry and Lockie Ferguson, who are included in the team as replacements for Shaheen Afridi and Haris Rauf, bowled well in the last match, picking up 2 wickets each.

Along with David Willey and David Payne, they make up for a strong pace attack. Roelof van der Merwe, who is the only full-time spinner on the team, hasn’t been too consistent.

Pitch and Conditions

The pitch at Headingley is good to bat in and has seen an average first-inning score of around 150. The seamers will get some movement off the surface early on but there won’t be any alarming deliveries. The spinners will come into the picture in the latter half as the pitch becomes a bit slow. The weather is expected to remain pleasant with a few passing showers. 


NOS vs WEF Betting Tips

Both teams have struggled to perform this season and there is no side with a clear advantage. However, we feel that the Welsh Fire has a slight edge. The pressure of a must-win fixture will bring out the best in them and the two new seamers, Matt Henry amd Lockie Ferguson look in good form which will be a bonus.

Bet on Welsh Fire to win.
