OVI vs TRR Match Preview

As mentioned earlier, the Oval Invincibles are by far the most consistent team this season and have made it to the playoffs for the first time in its history. Much of the team’s success can be attributed to an excellent batting performance by the top and middle order.

Heinrich Klaasen and Will Jacks are 1st and 3rd on the list of the top scorers for the season, and the Invincibles will hope that they continue with the good momentum. They have received good support from Jason Roy, Sam Curran, and Jordan Cox.

Tom Curran has further cemented his credentials as a reliable all-rounder this season. In the latest fixture, Curran scored 43 runs and also picked up 3 wickets, playing an important role to get the team to the next stage. In addition to Tom Curran, the Invincibles have Sam Curran and Spencer Johnson who will feature in the seam department, while Nathan Sowter and Adam Zampa are the two spinners on the team.

The defending champions were rather inconsistent this season, and have managed to win just 3 of the 6 matches played so far, while they are currently 2nd on the points table, the Southern Brave and Manchester Originals have the same number of points, and London Spirit is trailing them by 1 point but have an extra match in hand.

Taking into account all the permutations and combinations, this is a must-win fixture for the Rockets if they want a smooth qualification. The team will bank on its solid batting line-up to put up a big score. Tom Kohler-Cadmore, Colin Munro, and Joe Root are all in good form and the Rockets will need at least 1 of them to play a big inning.

Daniel Sams has contributed to all aspects of the game, scoring 109 runs and picking up 10 wickets. However, the bowling has been a bit of a letdown. Luke Wood, Sam Cook, and Lewis Gregory have all been quite expensive and failed to pick up wickets. Ish Sodhi, who is the lone full-time spinner, has struggled too. 

Weather Report

The weather is expected to remain clear with no forecast for rain. The temperature will remain pleasant at between 18 to 23 degrees Celsius. 


Pitch Report

The pitch at the Kennington Oval is good to bat on and has hosted some high-scoring matches this season. The average first-inning score on this ground is around 160. The quicker bowlers can expect some movement off the seam early on but the pitch evens out and gets easier for the batsmen to play their shots.

The square boundaries are shorter and will be targeted by the batsmen. 


Notable stats

Colin Munro: Solid Value

Colin Munro is a consistent performer in the Hundred. He has scored 306 runs in his last 10 innings at an incredible strike rate of 170.94. Having him in your Dream11 team is a safe bet that will pay off on more occasions than not.
