TRR vs MAO Team Previews

Trent Rockets

The defending champions haven’t had the best of times in the latest campaign. With just 2 wins in 5 matches, the team has just 5 points against their name. As a result, they are locked in a fierce battle with teams including the Northern Superchargers, Southern Brave, Manchester Originals, and Welsh Fire, all of whom have the same number of points.

Albeit, the Rockets have a better NRR than most of the other teams and are 3rd on the table.

The Rockets have an excellent batting line-up but most of the batsmen have failed to fire, and that has been one of the main reasons for the team’s poor show. The likes of Joe Root, Alex Hales, and Tom Kohler-Cadmore are some of the biggest strikers in white-ball cricket and the Rockets will want them to play well here.

Colin Munro is the leading run-scorer for the team with 115 runs. The bowlers too have struggled to perform. All-rounder Daniel Sams is the leading wicket-taker with 5 wickets but has been very expensive.

Similarly, Sam Cook, Luke Wood, and Lewis Gregory have leaked runs too. Imad Wasim has done a decent job of putting the opposition under pressure.

Manchester Originals

The Originals have charted a journey similar to their opponents, but a weaker NRR means they have been pushed down to the 5th place on the points table. With just 3 more matches to go for them, the Originals will want to bounce back strongly.

Jamie Overton played a sensational innings in Manchester’s latest fixture, scoring 83 off just 30 deliveries and helping the team defeat the Superchargers and keep the qualification hopes alive. Jos Buttler has batted well too and is the leading run-scorer for the team.

He has however received little support at the other end. Phil Salt, who is among the top run-getters in the Hundred, has failed to get going, while Laurie Evans and Paul Walter haven’t been consistent enough. Joshua Little has bowled well to pick up 7 wickets but the other seamers, including Josh Tongue and Ben Raine, haven’t done well.

Usama Mir was brilliant in the last match, picking up 4 wickets for just 19 runs, and has been well-supported by Tom Hartley.

Pitch and Conditions

The pitch at Trent Bridge is good to bat early on in the match as it offers a good bounce and pace. A score of around 150 is a par score here. However, the surface does become two-paced in the second half and there is a good amount of spin on offer too.

The weather is likely to remain clear with temperatures of around 20 degrees Celsius. 


TRR vs MAO Betting Tips

The Trent Rockets have had a clean slate against the Manchester Originals to date. However, looking at the way they have played so far this season, we feel that they will have a tough time maintaining that record. While the Originals themselves haven’t played so well, they have some players in good form and can turn the match in their favor.

Bet on the Manchester Originals to win.

    Highest score after 25 balls

    Manchester Originals (1.83)


Jos Buttler is in good form for the Manchester Originals and is the top-scorer for the team. He will be partnered by Phil Salt, who is one of the most experienced campaigners in The Hundred. On the other hand, Dawid Malan and Alex Hales haven’t been in the best of forms. We are therefore backing Manchester to put up a bigger score in the first 25 deliveries.

  1. 10CRIC


    Dawid Malan to score under 21.5 runs



Dawid Malan is in very poor form this season and has an average of 7.00. His highest score so far is 11. We are therefore predicting another poor outing for him.
