SOB vs OVI Match Preview

Finn Allen and Leus du Plooy have been two of the most consistent batsmen for the Southern Brave this season. Allen is the top-scorer with 125 runs and will look to give the team a brisk start along with Devon Conway, while du Plooy and James Vince will be the key batsmen for the team during the middle overs.

Chris Jordan, who is back on the team after recovering from an injury, adds depth to the batting. Tymal Mills is in excellent form with the ball and is also the leading wicket-taker of the tournament with 11 wickets.

The Southern Brave has plenty of variety in the seam attack including Craig Overton and George Garton. Rehan Ahmed bowled a good spell in the last match, picking up 3 wickets, and will have the support of Colin Ackermann at the other end. 

The top three run-scorers for this tournament belong to the Oval Invincibles and they will be looking to put the opposition under pressure by scoring quick runs. Jason Roy and Will Jacks are likely to open the batting, while Heinrich Klaasen and Sam Curran will follow in the middle order.

Dam Billings and Ross Whiteley however haven’t been in the best of forms and the team will expect more from them. Gus Atkinson is the team’s prime seamer and has picked up 9 wickets. He will join the likes of Spencer Johnson and Zak Chappell in the seam department, while Nathan Sowter, Will Jacks, and Adam Zampa will take care of the spin. 

Weather Report

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

Pitch Report

The pitch at the Rose Bowl is well-balanced. It will provide some movement for the quicker bowlers and the batsmen will need to settle down before playing the big shots. The team batting first will look to set a target of close to 150 on this ground.

Notable stats

Sam Curran's all-round performance

Sam Curran has contributed well to the Invincibles’ success so far. He has scored 112 runs at a strike rate of 134.93 runs and also picked up 4 wickets. He is a very good option for the captain or vice captain as well.
