SOB vs BIP Team Previews

Southern Brave

The Southern Brave hasn’t been very consistent this season. With 2 wins, 2 losses, and a washed-out match, the team has 5 points from as many matches and is currently 4th on the points table. However, a win here will help them break away from the rest of the teams and jump to 2nd place.

The opening pair of Finn Allen and Devon Conway put up a good show in the team’s recent fixture against the Welsh Fire, scoring 53 runs for the first wicket. Allen is the top run-getter for the team with 103 runs. Leus Du Plooy and James Vince will be the key batsmen for Southern Brave in the middle order. Both of them have played well in patches but the team will need them to be more consistent.

Tim David, who had a good outing in the IPL, has struggled to perform here. In the seam department, Tymal Mills and Craig Overton have bowled well in the absence of Chris Jordan, picking up 8 and 6 wickets respectively.

However, the spinners, especially Rehan Ahmed, haven’t had the desired impact yet.

Birmingham Phoenix

The Birmingham Phoenix has endured a terrible start to its campaign. After its first two matches were abandoned, the Phoenix lost back-to-back matches and managed to win its first match of the season only last Sunday. As a result, Birmingham is at the bottom of the points table.

Jamie Smith scored a blistering half-century in the last match and is the leading run-scorer for the team. However, he hasn’t been too consistent. Ben Duckett and Will Smeed are likely to open the batting in this match. The batting effort has been pretty average so far as the all-rounders, Liam Livingstone, Moeen Ali, and Dan Mousley haven’t been able to score runs.

The mediocrity continues with the bowling unit too. Benny Howell is the leading wicket-taker with 6 wickets but has received little support from the likes of Moeen Ali and Adam Milne. Kane Richardson returned to form in the last match, picking up 4 wickets for just 32 runs and the team will be hoping that he continues with the good run.

Pitch and Conditions

The pitch at Southampton is good to bat on. The average first-inning score here is around 150. However, the surface does slow down as the match progresses and the spinners will be able to get some grip and turn.

The weather is expected to remain clear and pleasant, with temperatures of around 20 degrees. 


SOB vs BIP Betting Tips

Both teams haven’t been in the best of forms this season and will be looking to keep themselves relevant in the competition. We feel that the Southern Brave, given their stronger batting line-up, has a slight edge here. The Birmingham Phoenix hasn’t been able to perform to its full potential and is likely to struggle.

Bet on the Southern Brave to win.
