London Spirit hasn’t had the best of starts to this series. After losing its first game of the season against the Oval Invincibles, London has seen its last 2 matches washed out due to rain and had to contend with sharing the points. With 2 points, the London Spirit is 7th on the points table.
Dan Lawrence and Adam Rossington will look to give the team a strong start. The duo put up 46 runs for the opening wicket in the first match and appear to be in good touch. Michael Pepper and Matthew Wade make up the middle order, while all-rounders Ravi Bopara and Daryl Mitchell add strength to the batting and the bowling.
The bowlers did get to bowl a few overs even in the rain-interrupted matches and have done a decent job so far. Daniel Worrall is the leading wicket-taker with 4 wickets, while the other seamers, including Jordan Thompson, Nathan Ellis, and Ravi Bopara have picked up 2 wickets each.
Michael Critchley and Liam Dawson are the two specialist spinners on the team.
With just 3 points in as many matches, the Trent Rockets are in the bottom half of the points table. They lost their latest fixture, played against the Northern Superchargers, and seem to be struggling a bit at the moment.
Despite having some of the best T20 batsmen on its squad, the Trent Rockets have struggled to put up big totals on the board. Sam Hain is the top-scoring batsman with 83 runs in 2 innings. But he has received limited support at the other end.
Openers Alex Hales and Dawid Malan are two of the most experienced batsmen in the Hundred tournament but aren’t in the best of forms. The same thing can be said about Colin Munro and Tom Kohler-Cadmore. There is plenty of depth in batting for the Rockets as Imad Wasim, Daniel Sams, and Lewis Gregory can all do well with the bat.
Luke Wood is the pick of the bowlers with 4 wickets and will likely start with the new ball alongside Sam Cook, while Sams and Gregory will play a supporting role. Imad Wasim is the lone quality spinner on the team.
LOS VS TRR TOSS PREDICTION
The team winning the toss will likely opt to field first.
PITCH AND CONDITIONS
The pitch at Lord’s is well-balanced. The average first-inning score on this ground is around 140. The seamers will get some movement with the new ball and the batsmen will need to be a bit careful with their shot selection. However, once they settle down, it will become easier to score runs. The spinners too can get a good amount of purchase from the surface.
The weather will remain clear with temperatures of around 20 degrees.
LOS VS TRR BETTING TIPS
While the Trent Rockets haven’t been in the best of forms so far, we feel that they have enough strength in the team to overcome any challenge from the opposition. The London Spirit has struggled to perform, especially with the bat and we expect their woes to continue.
Bet on the Trent Rockets to win.
