WEF vs BRM Betting Tips

  • Joe Clarke impressed at the top of the order with 37 runs from 29 balls against Oval Invincibles. He has the tough job of filling Jonny Bairstow’s shoes but we are backing Clarke to be Welsh Fire’s highest run scorer on Saturday evening. With the ball, Ryan Higgins took 2-31 on this ground on Sunday and we expect him to be Welsh Fire’s top wicket taker in this match.
  • Liam Livingstone is averaging 34.00 in the tournament but we think he will go big in this match and be Birmingham Phoenix’s highest run scorer. Kane Richardson took 3-19 against Southern Brave and he is our pick for Birmingham Phoenix’s top wicket taker against Welsh Fire.
  • Although there are big hitters on both sides, we think Birmingham Phoenix have the upper hand when it comes to sixes. We recommend backing them to hit the most sixes in the game

WEF vs BPH Match Prediction & Betting Tips, The Hundred 2022

Match 12 of the 2022 Men’s Hundred sees Welsh Fire take on Birmingham Phoenix on Saturday evening at Sophia Gardens, Cardiff. The hosts have played two and lost two in this year’s competition so far. Birmingham Phoenix lost to Trent Rockets in their first game but beat Southern Brave last time out. Read on as we preview this game. The match gets underway at 18:00 local time.

Welsh Fire continue to look a little light in terms of experience and leaders. They have some talented young batters but need them to grow up quickly if they want to compete in this type of game.

Birmingham Phoenix sent a message to the rest of the tournament by beating Southern Brave earlier this week. At the same time, Will Smeed sent a message to the cricketing world that he has arrived. Phoenix will be very confident ahead of this match.

Welsh Fire Team News & Playing 11

WEF Team News

South African big hitter David Miller finished his international commitments and got into the Welsh Fire XI against Oval Invincibles with Noor Ahmad dropping out. George Scrimshaw also came in at the expense of Sam Hain. Ben Duckett has been on England Lions duty this week but we still expect him to play in this match.

WEF Key Players

  • Joe Clarke- the right handed opener top scored for Welsh Fire against Oval Invincibles. He hit three fours and two sixes in his knock but was not well supported by his team-mates.
  • Ben Duckett- the left-handed top order batter starred for England Lions earlier this week with 145 against South Africa. His innings included 21 fours.
  • Ryan Higgins- the Gloucestershire all-rounder has recently announced that he will play for Middlesex next season. He relishes the big crowds and the sense of occasion in games in The Hundred.

WEF Team Form

Welsh Fire struggled throughout the 2021 tournament and have shown very little so far this year to suggest they are going to be much better this time around.

Welsh Fire Predicted Playing 11

Joe Clarke, Tom Banton, Ben Duckett, Ollie Pope, David Miller, Josh Cobb (c), Ryan Higgins, Adam Zampa, David Payne, Jake Ball, George Scrimshaw

Birmingham Phoenix Team News & Playing 11

BPH Team News

Moeen Ali will have been delighted to see his side defeat Southern Brave after opening the campaign with the defeat to Trent Rockets. Matthew Wade and Henry Brooks came into the side in place of Graeme van Beuren and Dan Mousley for the win.

BPH Key Players

  • Will Smeed- there will be plenty of pressure and eyes on the 20 year old after he became the first player to hit a century in the Hundred last week. 
  • Liam Livingstone- the England white ball specialist was surprisingly sluggish with his strike-rate against Southern Brave. He managed to hit only one four and one six in the game.
  • Kane Richardson- the Australian pace bowler is a reliable performer across all formats. He dismissed James Vince, Chris Jordan and Tymal Mills in the last match.

BPH Team Form

Phoenix got their season up and running with the win over 2021 Champions Southern Brave to end a two match losing streak.

WEF vs BPH Top Team Batsmen

Joe Clarke, Ben Duckett and Tom Banton are our tips with the bat for Welsh Fire. When Banton gets going and is on form, he is very hard to stop in white ball cricket.

We recommend Moeen Ali, Liam Livingstone and Will Smeed to perform with the bat for Birmingham Phoenix. Ali can always be relied upon to come to the wicket and play at a very high strike-rate.

🏆 Welsh Fire vs Birmingham Phoenix Prediction

As Ben Duckett showed for England Lions, there is plenty of batting talent in the Welsh Fire squad and at some point they will produce a very strong batting performance. However, we do not think they will be able to cope with the form of Birmingham Phoenix. We are predicting another defeat for Welsh Fire and a second win of the campaign for Birmingham Phoenix.
