Pitch Report

The pitch at Old Trafford in Manchester provides an equivalent balance to the batting and bowling department. The fast runners can expect some early swing with the new ball. As the match gradually goes deeper, the wicket becomes favours the batters. The ball intends to come nicely to the bat and once the batsman is set, they can take on the charge. The skipper winning the toss might choose to bowl first keeping all these aspects in mind.

Match Prediction

Birmingham Phoenix has lost both prior matches with Manchester Originals. On paper, they have a strong team, but they lack versatility in their bowling side. Their batting will be unduly relying on Liam Livingstone and Moeen Ali for their heroics. In comparison, MO appears to be a more complete team to us. Their top order is formidable, and they will be difficult to stop if they become comfortable on this batting-friendly pitch. We believe Manchester Originals will win this competition.
