SOB vs OVI Team Previews

Southern Brave

After a bit of an inconsistent start, the Southern Brave have bounced back smartly, winning back-to-back matches as they head into this key encounter. The Brave are currently second on the points table with 7 points. A win here will virtually guarantee them a place in the playoffs.

However, if they do lose the match, it will allow teams like the Northern Superchargers, the Trent Rockets, and Manchester Originals to catch up.

Finn Allen and Leus du Plooy have been two of the most consistent batsmen for the Southern Brave this season. Allen is the top-scorer with 125 runs and will look to give the team a brisk start along with Devon Conway, while du Plooy and James Vince will be the key batsmen for the team during the middle overs.

Chris Jordan, who is back on the team after recovering from an injury, adds depth to the batting. Tymal Mills is in excellent form with the ball and is also the leading wicket-taker of the tournament with 11 wickets.

The Southern Brave has plenty of variety in the seam attack including Craig Overton and George Garton. Rehan Ahmed bowled a good spell in the last match, picking up 3 wickets, and will have the support of Colin Ackermann at the other end.

Oval Invincibles

The Oval Invincibles are in scintillating form this season. With just 1 loss in 6 matches, they have 9 points and are comfortably sitting at the top of the points table. However, this is no time to be complacent for them and the Invincibles will want to hold on to the place by winning here.

The batsmen have done a terrific job so far. The top three run-scorers for this tournament belong to the Oval Invincibles and they will be looking to put the opposition under pressure by scoring quick runs. Jason Roy and Will Jacks are likely to open the batting, while Heinrich Klaasen and Sam Curran will follow in the middle order.

Dam Billings and Ross Whiteley however haven’t been in the best of forms and the team will expect more from them. Gus Atkinson is the team’s prime seamer and has picked up 9 wickets. He will join the likes of Spencer Johnson and Zak Chappell in the seam department, while Nathan Sowter, Will Jacks, and Adam Zampa will take care of the spin.
