TRR vs BIP Match Preview

The Rockets have arguably the strongest batting line-up in the league but that hasn’t had the desired effect on the team’s performance. Alex Hales has been out of form throughout this season and will hope to get some runs under his belt in this match.

He will have the support of Joe Root at the other end, who has got a couple of good starts. Tom Kohler-Cadmore, who had a quiet season by his standard, returned to form in style during the last match, slamming a half-century, but that wasn’t enough to take his team to a win.

The bowlers have been quite expensive and will need to be more disciplined with their line and length. All-rounder Daniel Sams is the leading wicket-taker and will lead the seam attack along with Sam Cook, Luke Wood, and Lewis Gregory, while Ish Sodhi and Samit Patel will be seen in the spin department. 

Ben Duckett is the leading run-scorer for the Phoenix this season, scoring 119 runs at an average of 29.75. He has however received little support at the other end as the likes of Liam Livingstone and Will Smeed have failed to get going. The team lacks specialist batsmen in the middle order and that has cost them dearly in quite a few matches.

The all-rounders Moeen Ali, Dan Mousley, and Benny Howell haven’t performed well with the bat. The latter however is the leading wicket-taker for the team with 6 wickets. He is likely to lead the new-ball attack along with Kane Richardson.

The inclusion of Chris Woakes is a big positive for the team and will add plenty of bite to the team’s pace attack. Tanveer Sangha will join Moeen Ali during the middle overs. 

Weather Report

The weather will remain clear and pleasant. 

Pitch Report

The pitch at Trent Bridge is a bit dry and should be good to bat on. The last match played here saw a total of 352 runs and that shows the quality of the surface. The quicker bowlers who are disciplined with their line and length will be rewarded with wickets. The spinners are likely to struggle on this surface.

Notable stats

Dream11 Prediction

We are backing the Trent Rockets to win this match. The Birmingham Phoenix has been very poor in their performance this season and will find it difficult to bounce back. The team lacks depth in batting and the bowling too has been below-par. On the other hand, the Rockets have a much stronger batting unit, and playing at home gives them an advantage.
