TRR vs BIP Team Previews

Trent Rockets

The defending champions have struggled to live up to the expectations this season and have won just 2 of the 6 matches played so far. As a result, the Rockets are currently placed 5th on the points table. If they lose this match, the chances of qualifying for the playoffs will just be theoretical.

The Rockets have arguably the strongest batting line-up in the league but that hasn’t had the desired effect on the team’s performance. Alex Hales has been out of form throughout this season and will hope to get some runs under his belt in this match.

He will have the support of Joe Root at the other end, who has got a couple of good starts. Tom Kohler-Cadmore, who had a quiet season by his standard, returned to form in style during the last match, slamming a half-century, but that wasn’t enough to take his team to a win.

The bowlers have been quite expensive and will need to be more disciplined with their line and length. All-rounder Daniel Sams is the leading wicket-taker and will lead the seam attack along with Sam Cook, Luke Wood, and Lewis Gregory, while Ish Sodhi and Samit Patel will be seen in the spin department.

Birmingham Phoenix

With just 1 win in 6 matches, the Birmingham Phoenix will need to treat this match as a knockout fixture. They are at the bottom of the points table, and even if they win both their upcoming games, it is highly unlikely that they will make it to the next stage.

Ben Duckett is the leading run-scorer for the Phoenix this season, scoring 119 runs at an average of 29.75. He has however received little support at the other end as the likes of Liam Livingstone and Will Smeed have failed to get going. The team lacks specialist batsmen in the middle order and that has cost them dearly in quite a few matches.

The all-rounders Moeen Ali, Dan Mousley, and Benny Howell haven’t performed well with the bat. The latter however is the leading wicket-taker for the team with 6 wickets. He is likely to lead the new-ball attack along with Kane Richardson.

The inclusion of Chris Woakes is a big positive for the team and will add plenty of bite to the team’s pace attack. Tanveer Sangha will join Moeen Ali during the middle overs.

Pitch and Conditions

The pitch at Trent Bridge is a bit dry and should be good to bat on. The last match played here saw a total of 352 runs and that shows the quality of the surface. The quicker bowlers who are disciplined with their line and length will be rewarded with wickets. The spinners are likely to struggle on this surface. The weather will remain clear and pleasant. 


TRR vs BIP Betting Tips

Both teams have struggled to perform well and will be desperate for a win. We feel that the home team is better poised to win as they have a much stronger batting line-up compared to their opponents.

Bet on the Trent Rockets to win.

    Highest score after 25 balls

    Trent Rockets (1.85)


The Rockets are likely to start with Alex Hales and Joe Root, with Tom Kohler-Cadmore to follow. All of them are clean strikers of the ball and are capable of playing the big shots. On the other hand, the top order of the Birmingham Phoenix hasn’t done well. We are therefore backing Trent to put up a bigger score.

  1. Satbet


    Total 6s in the match

    Over 10.5 (1.90)


The pitch at Trent Bridge is good to bat on. The ground is a bit on the shorter side and with plenty of big-hitters in both teams, we can expect over 10.5 maximums in this match.
