Matthew Wade top scored for Birmingham Phoenix against Welsh Fire but we expect to see Liam Livingstone back in form for this game. Livingstone is our pick for Birmingham Phoenix’s highest run scorer in this match. Kane Richardson took 2-15 on Saturday and he is a strong choice to be their top wicket taker against Trent Rockets.
Dawid Malan is the leading run scorer in the competition with 194 from three innings. We are backing the England international to be Trent Rockets’ highest run scorer against Birmingham Phoenix. With the ball, we expect Daniel Sams to enjoy the pace of the pitch in Birmingham. He is our tip for Birmingham Phoenix’s top wicket taker in this match.
Will Smeed became the first player to hit a century in the Hundred on Wednesday but followed up with a duck against Manchester Originals. We recommend backing Smeed to score over 19.5 runs.

Birmingham Phoenix Team News & Playing 11
BPH Team News
After contributing 29 runs as an opener from the first two games, Miles Hammond lost his place at the top of the order ahead of the game against Welsh Fire. He dropped down the order with Chris Benjamin getting an opportunity to open. We do not expect to see any changes ahead of this match.
BPH Key Players
Liam Livingstone- the 29 year old scored 47 in the reverse fixture earlier in the season. He will be relishing the chance to go up against a similar bowling attack in this match.
Matthew Wade- the keeper-batter can open the batting and has been used in that role in other tournaments. However, he made a match-winning contribution from the middle order against Welsh Fire.
Kane Richardson- the Australian right arm pace bowler is averaging 11.60 with the ball in this competition. He is showing all his experience from other franchise tournaments.
BPH Team Form
Birmingham Phoenix had a few batting wobbles against Welsh Fire but a healthy strike-rate kept them ahead of the game. They are currently racking up the wins again.

Who will win Birmingham Phoenix vs Trent Rockets Match?
The bowling line-ups on both sides will have their work cut out against some of the best batters in English white ball cricket. The result may well depend on which batter is able to kick on and make a big score.
We are backing Moeen Ali, Liam Livingstone and Will Smeed to be the top batters for Birmingham Phoenix. Ali has a strike-rate of 155.00 in the tournament so far.
Alex Hales, Dawid Malan and Colin Munro are our picks with the bat for Trent Rockets. Such has been the form of the openers, Munro has not been required to produce a big score yet. But he is more than capable of doing so if required.
This should be an excellent game between two of the in-form sides in the 2022 Men’s Hundred. With Will Smeed hitting 101 not out during the last match at Edgbaston and Dawid Malan scoring 97 not out on Saturday, there are sure to be plenty of runs in this fixture. We are predicting a fourth straight win for Trent Rockets.
