|Southern Brave vs Manchester Originals, Match 18th The Hundred|
|Date||18th August 2022|
|Time||11:30 PM IST, 6:00 PM GMT, 7:00 PM LOCAL|
|Venue||Rose Bowl, Southampton|
Southern Brave have experienced a torrid run so far in the tournament. They have played four games and have won just one. The defending champions need to do something special to save their title. They started the tournament with a win but then lost three back-to-back games. The batters have been at fault in all three losses and have failed to post decent scores.
Meanwhile, Manchester Originals also have the same number of wins and losses. They lost their first three games comprehensively but won the last game against Welsh Fire by 47 runs. A loss for either of the team will make their qualification extremely difficult.
The wicket will be a good one to bat, however, the teams have failed to post big scores. It’s definitely not because of the surface, but some class bowling by the teams.
Dark clouds are expected to cover the city on match day. There is a significant chance of rain as well and the match is likely to be affected. But keep your fingers crossed as the weather in England is unpredictable and can clear up before the match.
James Vince (c), Quinton de Kock (wk), Alex Davies, Marcus Stoinis, Ross Whiteley, Tim David, James Fuller, George Garton, Rehan Ahmed/Chris Jordan, Jake Lintott/Tymal Mills, Michael Hogan
Jos Buttler (c), Philip Salt (wk), Andre Russell, Tristan Stubbs, Laurie Evans/Ashton Turner, Wayne Madsen, Paul Walter, Sean Abbott, Tom Hartley, Mitchell Stanley, Matthew Parkinson
Teams may tweak their combination a bit. Brave can get in Tymal Mills and Chris Jordan while Originals can give Ashton Turner a go in the match.
The only clash between the two teams last season was abandoned due to rain.

James Vince scored a half-century in the first game but since has not scored much. He is due for a good inning and we are going to bet on him to come good in the match.
Jos Buttler has played a few good innings, but surprisingly his strike rate has been on the slower side. But runs in the previous games always work and strike rate is something that Buttler can always up. So he is a good option to have in the team.
While there is not much to show in terms of contributions from Stoinis in the tournament, he is a skilful player and can contribute with bat and ball. Stoinis played a brief inning of 37 in the last game and that should lift his confidence.
One can never know what Russell will turn up for the game. He may have a poor outing but again, we need to have players who can win games on their own and Russell is one such player. His selection is sort of a gamble, but fantasy cricket works like that.
Sean Abbott bowled a spell of 3 of 8 in 15 balls and looked in great rhythm. He will be keen to back his performance with another good one.
