The Men's Hundred, Match 24- LNS vs WEF Preview and Fantasy Prediction
The Men’s Hundred
Match 24: LNS vs WEF
LNS and WEF will square off in match number 24 of the ongoing edition of men’s hundred at the iconic Lord’s cricket stadium on Wednesday, August 24. LNS faced defeat against Trent Rockets in their last game and are currently positioned at second with 8 points to their name.
WEF suffered their fifth consecutive loss against Southern Brave on Monday. Paul Stilring onslaught wreaked havoc on the Welsh bowlers as they miserably failed to defend 129 runs.
LNS have played some good cricket over the last few weeks. With a solitary loss in six games, Morgan’s men are in firm control. They have shown promise with both bat and ball and are probably one of the strongest units this year. In the batting department they have the likes of Daniel Bell Drummord, Ben Mcdermmot and Eoin Morgan. While Morgan has stood out with his resilience and perseverance, Drummord and Mcdermmot have found success with their natural aggressive style of play at the top of the order. Nathan Ellis, Mason Crane and Chris Wood will be the bowlers that will hold the key for the London based franchise.
Nothing has gone WEF’s way this year. With 5 losses in as many games, the men in red are placed at the bottom of the league standings. They have struggled to click as a unit. On days when their batting has come good, their bowlers have failed to rise to the occasion and vice versa. Although their chances of advancing through the next round are slim to none, the Welsh side will still aim for a win. With nothing at stake, they should strive for victory and add some substance to their faltering campaign. Ahead of match 24, let us have a look at how the two sides will fare out in Wednesday’s clash.

The pitch at Lord's will largely favour the bowlers. Spinners in particular would love to make the most of the long boundaries and produce the results. Pace bowlers would like to cash in early in the innings when the ball is providing a movement. The average 1st innings T20I score has been 150 runs here.
