OVI vs MAO Team Previews

Oval Invincibles

After winning their opening fixture against London Spirit, the second match saw the Oval Invincibles snatch a tie at the very last ball against the Welsh Fire and shared the spoils. Oval Invincibles have 3 points against its name, just like 4 other teams in the tournament.

Jason Roy and Will Jacks haven’t been able to give the team a strong start in both matches so far and will look to make amends here. Both are clean strikers of the white ball and will surely bounce back going forward. Jordan Cox scored a gritty half-century in the match against Welsh Fire and was responsible for holding anchor at one end.

However, it was Tom Curran who played the most important role with the bat and his cameo of 38 runs saw the team level scores at the very last delivery. There are capable batsmen in the middle order, including Sam Billings and Heinrich Klaasen but Oval will need them to step up and score runs.

The bowlers have done well to limit the opposition to modest totals in both matches so far. Gus Atkinson is the leading wicket-taker with 4 wickets, and has the support of Sam Curran, Zak Chappell, and Tom Curran at the other end, while the spinners, Nathan Sowter and Sunil Narine have done a good job too, picking up 5 wickets between them.

Manchester Originals

After 3 matches, the Manchester Originals have managed to collect 3 points and are currently second on the points table thanks to its excellent NRR. The team won its latest match against Birmingham Phoenix by 49 runs and will look to build on the winning momentum.

Jos Buttler has led his team from the front, scoring 142 runs in 3 innings, and is the leading run-scorer of the tournament. However, he has received little support from the batsmen at the other end. He has an explosive opening partner in the form of Phil Salt but the latter hasn’t been able to get going yet.

Similarly, the batsmen in the middle order, including Laurie Evans and Max Holden have struggled to convert their starts into a big inning. One of the positives for Manchester is that the team has plenty of depth in its batting. All-rounders Usama Mir, Jamie Overton, and Paul Walter are all capable of adding valuable runs in the death overs.

Tom Hartley and Joshua Little have bowled a couple of excellent spells and are the joint-highest wicket-takers for the team. Paul Walter, Usama Mir, and Richard Gleeson have bowled well in patches but have been expensive at times.

Pitch and Conditions

The pitch at the Kennington Oval is nice and hard and offers a good amount of pace and bounce to the quicker bowlers. The pitch has some grass on it and we can expect some help for the seamers throughout the match. A score of around 140 is a par score. The spinners will need to work hard for their wickets.

The weather is expected to remain clear with temperatures above 20 degrees Celsius. 


OVI vs MAO Betting Tips

Both teams have seen some ups and downs this season and are on equal footing as far as the current form is concerned. However, we feel that the Oval Invincibles have a slight edge here. The lower order showed in the last match that it can perform well even under pressure and that will be an advantage for them.

    Total 4s

    Under 24.5 (1.91)


While both teams have s strong batting line-ups, most of the batsmen aren’t in the best of forms. Given the nature of the pitch, we think that the batsmen will find it a bit difficult to go after the bowlers. We are therefore recommending an Under wager for this bet.
