Hundred Ball Men’s

Match 2: WF vs MO



The second match of the Hundred Ball Men’s will be played between Welsh Fire and Manchester Originals. Sophia Gardens at Cardiff will host the game on Wednesday, August 2 at 7:30 PM. 

The Welsh franchise will look forward to a better campaign this time after finishing their previous season at the bottom of the league table with eight straight losses in all of their matches.

WF have assembled a more powerful team under the captaincy of Tom Abell and has the services of players like David Willey, Haris Rauf, Stephen Eskinazi and Roelof van der Merwe. These players will have to contribute as a team in order to win games.

Manchester on the other side had a pressing campaign last year as they ended in the runner-up position. So close, yet so far from the trophy. They ended up being second on the leaderboard with five wins and three losses. Their fighting performance earned them a place in the Eliminator. They overshadowed London Spirit in a nail-biting thriller to cruise all their way to the finals. Yet they lost in the finals at the hands of Trent Rockets and nearly missed getting their hands on the championship trophy.

This time, Manchester will be led by England star batter Jos Buttler who will bring his power-packed batting and devoted leadership skills. He will be backed by some talented players like Paul Walter, Paul Salt, Laurie Evans and Wayne Madsen.
