SOB vs NOS Match Preview

The Southern Brave put up yet another mediocre batting performance at the top of the order, but a stunning late onslaught by Chris Jordan propelled them to a respectable total. Jordan is now the top run-getter for his team and has also picked up 3 wickets. Finn Allen started off well in both matches but hasn’t been able to convert it into a meaningful inning.

On the other hand, the likes of James Vince and Tim David have failed to fire altogether. Southern Brave must work on its batting if it wants a real shot at the top 3 slots. The pace attack is in good form for the home team. Craig Overton has picked up 2 wickets in both matches and is the leading wicket-taker.

He has received good support from Tymall Mills, George Garton, and Jordan. Rehan Ahmed will be at the helm of the spin attack. 

After letting go of Faf Du Plessis, the Superchargers have played their faith on Wayne Parnell, who has had a good run as a captain. He led the Pretoria Capitals to the Finals in the SA20 and did the same in the recently concluded MLC, where he took the Seattle Orcas tantalizingly close to the title.

He will bank on Adam Lyth and Tom Banton to give the team a good start. The middle order is pretty strong thanks to the presence of Matthew Short, Adam Hose, and Harry Brook, while all-rounders David Weise and Saif Zaib can play the role of a finisher.

Parnell has plenty of options to choose from when it comes to the seam attack as Reece Topley, Matthew Potts, Brydon Carse, and Ollie Robinson are all available for selection. Adil Rashid was the leading wicket-taker for the team last season and will head the spin department. 

Weather Report

The weather is expected to be clear with plenty of sunshine and temperatures of above 30 degrees Celsius. 

Pitch Report

As seen in the last match, the pitch at the Rose Bowl is likely to be good to bat on. There is a good amount of bounce and pace on offer which will allow the batsmen to play their shots. The quicker bowlers will get some movement early on in the match. A score of around 150 in the first innings is a par score.

Notable stats

Adam Lyth’s Excellent Batting

Adam Lyth was the leading run-scorer for the Superchargers last season. He scored 299 runs at an average of 37.38 and a strike rate of 175.88.
