Welsh Fire WEF
Manchester Originals MCR

WEF vs MCR Betting Tips

  • Welsh Fire will be without captain and star batter Jonny Bairstow for the next few games as he will be on England duty. In his place, we are backing Ben Duckett, who has scored 94 runs in the tournament so far, as Welsh Fire’s highest run scorer in this game. Qais Ahmad went wicketless in the last game but took 4-13 in the opener. He is worth backing as Welsh Fire’s top wicket taker in this match.
  • Phil Salt may have a top score of only 22 in The Hundred so far but we expect him to come good in this match. He is our tip for Manchester Originals’ leading run scorer in this clash. With the ball, Matt Parkinson has 5-36 across the tournament and is a strong bet for Manchester Originals’ top wicket taker in this game.
  • We expect Tom Banton to take the gloves in Jonny Bairstow’s absence, he hit 34 in the win over Southern Brave for Welsh Fire. Phil Salt is an able deputy for Jos Buttler as Manchester Originals’ wicket-keeper. This is a close call but we are backing Phil Salt as the top wicket-keeper in this match.

Welsh Fire vs Manchester Originals Prediction & Betting Tips, The Hundred 2021

Welsh Fire host Manchester Originals in Cardiff on Saturday afternoon in the Men’s Hundred. Welsh Fire have won both their games in the tournament after victories over Northern Superchargers and Southern Brave. Manchester Originals lost their opening game to Oval Invincibles but bounced back with a 6 wicket win over Birmingham Phoenix. This match gets underway at Sophia Gardens, Cardiff at 14:30 local time.

Welsh Fire will be weakened by losing Jonny Bairstow but they still have a very strong top order in Tom Banton, Ben Duckett and Glenn Phillips. With Qais Ahmad performing with the ball, they remain a tough opponent.

Jos Buttler is also a big loss for Manchester Originals but their batting line-up still looks full of experience and big hitters. If Matt Parkinson can bowl unplayable deliveries again then his side will be a real threat.

WEF vs MO Match Toss Prediction

With new captains and opening batsmen, there could be some changes in approach from earlier in the tournament. We predict both skippers to insert the opposition.

WEF vs MO Pitch Report

Welsh Fire hit 165-4 on Tuesday, the highest score at the venue so far. The long straight boundaries make high scoring relatively easy.

Welsh Fire Team News & Playing 11

WEF Team News

Jonny Bairstow is irreplaceable in this format and his absence will mean a new captain for Welsh Fire also. We expect Leus du Plooy to bat at the top of the order with experienced pace bowler and T20 specialist Jake Ball taking over as skipper.

WEF Key Players

  • Ben Duckett - After a brief England Test career, the short left-handed opener has carved out a niche as a free-scoring white ball specialist at the top of the order. He has impressed so far in the competition.
  • Glenn Phillips - With Jonny Bairstow absent, there are likely to be more opportunities for the New Zealander to have longer at the crease. He is a clean hitter who regularly clears the ropes.
  • Qais Ahmad - He was wicketless and expensive in Welsh Fire’s second match but he will benefit from opposition batsmen going after him and will pick up crucial wickets.

WEF Team Form

Welsh Fire have set the standard in terms of attacking across their top order from the first ball. It will be interesting to see if this approach can be maintained without Jonny Bairstow in the side.

Welsh Fire Predicted Playing 11

Leus du Plooy, Tom Banton (wk), Ian Cockbain, Ben Duckett, Glenn Phillips, Jimmy Neesham, Matthew Critchley, Josh Cobb, Qais Ahmad, Jake Ball (c), David Payne 

WEF vs MCR Dream11 Prediction

  • Wicket-keeper

    Phil Salt (9.5) and Tom Banton (9) will be our wicket-keepers. Both will be stepping into their captain’s shoes but have more than enough talent to match them with bat and gloves.

  • Batsmen

    Colin Munro (9.5), Glenn Phillips (9.5), Ben Duckett (9) and Joe Clarke (8.5) are our batsmen. Clarke will enjoy getting the chance to bat from the first ball.

  • All-rounders

    Carlos Brathwaite (9.5) will be our all-rounder. He has runs and wickets already in the tournament and is looking in fine form.

  • Bowlers

    Lockie Ferguson (9), Matt Parkinson (9), Qais Ahmad (9) and Fred Klaassen (8.5) are our bowlers. It will be fascinating to see how the young spinners perform against each other.

  • Captain/Vice-captain

    Phil Salt will be captain, Matt Parkinson his deputy

WEF vs MNR Dream11 Team Prediction

  • Batsmen:Colin Munro, Glenn Phillips, Ben Duckett, Joe Clarke

  • All Rounder:Carlos Brathwaite

  • Wicket Keeper:Phil Salt (c), Tom Banton

  • Bowler:Lockie Ferguson, Matt Parkinson (vc), Qais Ahmad, Fred Klaassen

Manchester Originals Team News & Playing 11

MO Team News

We were supposed to see how they would line-up without Jos Buttler in their last game but the rain put a stop to that against Northern Superchargers. Simon Katich’s team need to find a new opener and captain. Our prediction is Joe Clarke to move up to opener and West Indies’ Carlos Brathwaite to skipper the XI.

MO Key Players

  • Phil Salt - A competent gloveman but a truly destructive batsman at the top of the order. Now a full international, we expect a big score from Salt in this game.
  • Joe Clarke - Filling Jos Buttler’s shoes as an opener will not be easy but Clarke has had plenty thrown at him over the last few years and has emerged stronger as a batter.
  • Matt Parkinson - As expected ahead of the tournament, slow bowlers and spinners are proving valuable to all sides. Parkinson gives the ball a big rip and has been rewarded with wickets.

MO Team Form

Jos Buttler’s absence was easily predicted and long-term plans will be in place for how to minimise his loss. A win in this game and Manchester Originals will be sniffing the top spots in the hundred..

Manchester Originals Predicted Playing 11

Phil Salt (wk), Joe Clarke, Colin Munro, Tom Lammonby, Sam Hain, Carlos Brathwaite (c), Calvin Harrison, Tom Hartley, Frederick Klaassen, Lockie Ferguson, Matt Parkinson

🏆 Welsh Fire vs Manchester Originals Prediction

We are expecting a close game with both teams playing under new captaincy and without their star England international batsman. Ultimately, we feel that Jonny Bairstow is a greater loss for Welsh Fire than Jos Buttler is for Manchester Originals. We are predicting an away win in this match.
