Betting Tips
  • Ben Duckett took on the responsibility of making runs in the absence of Jonny Bairstow on Wednesday, He hit 40 runs from 31 balls and is our tip for Welsh Fire’s highest run scorer against Oval Invincibles. Jake Ball got the only wicket for Fire in their opening game and he has been a top white ball bowler for years. He is our pick for Welsh Fire’s top wicket taker.
  • The top four batters produced only 10 runs for Oval Invincibles on Thursday but we are backing Will Jacks to produce the goods in this game. He got a call-up to the England Lions squad on Friday and he is a strong choice for Oval Invincibles’ highest run scorer. With the ball, Mohammad Hasnain took 2-40 against London Spirit and should be able to use the conditions to his advantage in Cardiff. He is well worth backing as the Invincibles’ top wicket taker.
  • As a specialist white ball batter, Duckett has developed his game after a season in the BBL earlier this year. We recommend backing him to score over 19.5 runs in this match.

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

Match 5 of the 2022 Men’s Hundred sees Welsh Fire and Oval Invincibles go head to head in Cardiff on Sunday afternoon. The hosts were thrashed by the 2021 Champions, Southern Brave, by 9 wickets in their opening game of this season. Oval Invincibles went down by just 3 runs against London Spirit. Read on as we preview this game. The match gets underway at 14:00 local time.

It has not been a great week for Welsh Fire with their skipper and best player, Jonny Bairstow, pulling out of the tournament only the day before it started. They need to look forwards now but it is going to be very tough.

Oval Invincibles will still be smarting from losing to their London rivals at home on Thursday night. Expect the top order to deliver with the bat and that to go a long way to sealing a victory.

WEF vs OVI Match Toss Prediction

Each skipper has chosen to field first in this year’s tournament and we expect both captains to do the same if they win the toss ahead of this match.

WEF vs OVI Pitch Report

It has been a pitch best suited to seam and swing bowlers in white ball games this year. Look out for the batters targeting the short straight boundary at the River Taff End of the ground.

Weather Report

Partly cloudy to begin with but likely to be clear and sunny by the end of the match.

Welsh Fire Team News & Playing 11

WEF Team News

We expect Welsh Fire to give a better account of themselves after a calmer build-up to this game. The departure of Jonny Bairstow from The Hundred 2022 season was disappointing but particularly for the team who relied upon him so much. Fire selected their best possible XI for Match 1 but should have David Miller available for this game.

WEF Key Players

  • Ben Duckett- only Liam Livingstone scored more runs than Duckett in the 2021 Hundred. He scored five fours on Wednesday and looks set for another large number of runs this year.
  • Adam Zampa- the Australian spinner did not take any wickets in his first outing in this format but only went at 1.33 runs per ball. His variations could well cause the Oval Invincibles’ fragile top order problems.
  • Jake Ball- injuries have not been kind to the former England pace bowler over recent years. Whenever he has played, particularly in white-ball cricket, he has picked up wickets.

WEF Team Form

Although Welsh Fire won their final game of the 2021 season, that victory is now their only one from their last five games.

Welsh Fire Predicted Playing 11

Joe Clarke, Tom Banton (wk), David Miller, Ben Duckett, Sam Hain, Josh Cobb (c), Ryan Higgins, Adam Zampa, Noor Ahmad, Jake Ball, David Payne

Oval Invincibles Team News & Playing 11

OVI Team News

After the top order batting collapse, it was any wonder that Oval Invincibles got anywhere near winning against London Spirit, The fact that they did was due to the lower order hitting and aggressive bowling. We expect Rilee Rossouw to come into the side.

OVI Key Players

  • Will Jacks- the tall 23 year old has picked up plenty of white ball experience over the last year. He played and impressed in the Abu Dhabi T10 and the BPL as well as hitting five half-centuries in the T20 Blast.
  • Sam Curran- the England international bowling all-rounder is one of those players who seems perfect for this format. He took 1-29 and bowled seven dot balls on Thursday.
  • Mohammad Hasnain- the Pakistan paceman is never selected to keep the runs down but is widely recognised as a strike bowler. He dismissed both of London Spirit’s openers in the first match.

OVI Team Form

The Invincibles lost their last game of last season and are looking to avoid their third successive defeat in this match.

Oval Invincibles Predicted Playing 11

Jason Roy, Will Jacks, Rilee Rossouw, Sam Curran, Sam Billings (c) (wk), Hilton Cartwright, Tom Curran, Sunil Narine, Danny Briggs, Reece Topley, Mohammad Hasnain

WEF vs OVI Top Team Batsmen

Joe Clarke, Tom Banton and Ben Duckett are our batting recommendations for Welsh Fire. None of the Welsh Fire batters hit a six on Wednesday although Banton is particularly adept at doing so and will want to deliver in front of the home crowd.

We are backing Jason Roy, Will Jacks and Rilee Rossouw as our batting picks for Oval Invincibles. Rossouw enjoyed his return to international cricket against England last month and he will relish batting in this format.

We expect Jake Ball, David Payne and Adam Zampa to be the top bowlers for Welsh Fire. Ball and Payne should enjoy the seamer friendly conditions in Cardiff.

Reece Topley, Mohammad Hasnain and Sunil Narine are our tips with the ball for Oval Invincibles. Narine dismissed the dangerous pair of Glenn Maxwell and Dan Lawrence against London Spirit.

Welsh Fire vs Oval Invincibles Prediction

Losing the first game of The Hundred does not end your season but both teams will be keen to register their first win of the campaign in this match. There is plenty of talent in both sides but Oval Invincibles look to have far more players who can be relied upon. Rossouw will be a big boost and we are backing the Invincibles to win.

Final Verdict

Oval Invincibles are favorites to beat Welsh Fire at the odds of 1.57
