Cricket Free Tips | The Hundred Men’s 2021, Match 23: Birmingham Phoenix vs Welsh Fire

Birmingham Phoenix will host Welsh Fire in the Men’s Hundred on Monday evening. After defeating Oval Invincibles by 6 wickets on Wednesday, the hosts are currently in third place. Welsh Fire have lost their previous three games and are only one point behind London Spirit in the table. Continue reading for a preview of this game.

The Birmingham Phoenix have won all of their games at home in front of their adoring fans. They have a good chance of making it four wins in a row at Edgbaston, thanks to Moeen Ali’s excellent form.

Since England recalled Jonny Bairstow, Welsh Fire have not won a game. New Zealander Glenn Phillips, on the other hand, has rediscovered his form with the bat and is capable of winning any cricket match on his own.

 

Weather
Temperatures will hover between 16~18°C with chances of rain in the afternoon.

 

Pitch
Edgbaston’s pitch is a belter of a track. The batters enjoy playing on it because the ball hits the bat nicely. We saw how the Phoenix team chased down 173 with six balls to spare in the last game. When Welsh Fire takes on Birmingham Phoenix, expect another high-scoring match.
