LOS vs SOB Match Preview

Dan Lawrence and Adam Rossington were in good form for London Spirit during the first match as they put up 46 runs for the first wicket. However, both of them failed to go on and play a big inning. Michael Pepper and Matthew Wade will be the key batsmen for London during the middle overs and the team will need at least one of them to stay till the end.

Daryl Mitchell and Ravi Bopara are two of the most experienced all-rounders on the team and are capable of performing well under pressure. There is plenty of variety in the seam department as Jordan Thompson, Nathan Ellis, Liam Dawson, and Daniel Worrall are all available for selection.

Matthew Critchley picked up wickets in both his outings but has been expensive. He will be supported by Ravi Bopara in the spin department. 

Despite having a star-studded batting line-up, Chris Jordan is the top-scorer for Southern Brave, and that speaks volumes about the failure of its batsmen. Barring the opening match, Devon Conway and Finn Allen have failed to give the team a good start.

Middle-order batsmen James Vince, Tim David, and Leus Du Plooy have played well in patches but have failed to get positive results for the team.

Tymall Mills and Craig Overton have picked up 4 wickets each and will once again lead the pace attack. They will be supported by James Fuller and George Garton. Rehan Ahmed has bowled well to pick up 3 wickets but the Brave are a bit lacking when it comes to spin options. 

Weather Report

A score of around 140 is a par score. There is a forecast for rain which can lead to delays or interruptions. 

Pitch Report

The pitch at Lord’s is well-balanced and has something for the batsmen as well as the bowlers. The quicker bowlers will get some movement through the air early on, especially as the skies are likely to remain overcast. However, the batsmen will find it easier to play their shots once they settle down. The spinners too will get some help as the ball gets older.

Notable stats

George Garton’s Excellent Bowling

George Garton is one of the leading wicket-takers for the Southern Brave. He has picked up 16 wickets so far and has an economy rate of 1.55 runs per delivery.
