Match 19: BP vs OVI



The 19th match of the Men's Hundred 2023 tournament is set to take place at Edgbaston in Birmingham, featuring a clash between the Birmingham Phoenix (BP) and the Oval Invincibles (OVI)

Birmingham Phoenix faced a damp start to the tournament as their first two matches were marred by rain. They suffered defeat against the Manchester Originals and then faced another loss against the Welsh Fire. Still searching for their first victory in the Men's Hundred 2023, the Phoenix will need a collective effort to secure a win in the upcoming Sunday fixture.

Opting to bat first, the Phoenix struggled to build partnerships, resulting in a modest total of 112 runs from their allotted 100 balls. Despite a commendable bowling performance by Benny Howell, who claimed two wickets, the Phoenix couldn't successfully defend the target against the Welsh Fire.

Contrastingly, the Oval Invincibles have been in remarkable form this season, remaining undefeated with four wins and a tied game. Their recent encounter saw them narrowly triumph over the Northern Superchargers in a closely contested match.

Electing to bat, the Invincibles received contributions from Will Jacks (40), Jordan Cox (73*), and Heinrich Klaasen (46), enabling them to set a formidable total of 185 in their hundred-ball innings. Gus Atkinson's three-wicket haul proved crucial in defending the score against the Superchargers, as the Invincibles aim to maintain their unbeaten streak.
