Southern Brave vs Welsh Fire Preview

  • James Vince, who led the Vitality Blast in runs scored with 229 in the 10 games of the previous campaign while serving as captain of the Southern Brave, is an important hitter for this team.
  • James Neesham has been the Welsh Fires’ top all-around player. In seven innings last season, he took seven wickets.
  • In their head-to-head matchup during the previous season, both teams each won one game.


At The Ageas Bowl in Southampton on Wednesday evening, Southern Brave and Welsh Fire play in the opening match of the 2022 Men’s Hundred. Last year, the hosts won the first competition after defeating Birmingham Phoenix at Lord’s by 32 runs. Welsh Fire only won three games last season and placed last in their group. Starting time for the match is 19:00 local time.

Although Southern Brave got off to a shaky start in the 2021 tournament, they soon recovered their footing and won the event. They have a team full of short-format players and have made a significant recruiting effort ahead of this season.

Last year’s campaign was off to a strong start for Welsh Fire, but they lost steam in the middle of the game. However, this team has Jonny Bairstow in the best shape of his life, so anything is possible.

Southern Brave vs Welsh Fire Match Toss Prediction

Although the Southern Brave batted first in the Final the previous year, they always opted to field first in 2021. In this encounter, we anticipate that both sides will want to take the field early.

Southern Brave vs Welsh Fire Pitch Report

There are always more 2s and 3s than at other grounds, despite the fact that the ball does not get onto the bat at this ground particularly swiftly. The spin bowlers will have a lot of grips on this pitch.

Southern Brave Team News & Probable Playing XIs

Jofra Archer, a standout bowler for the holders, will miss the full season due to a stress fracture in his lower back, for which he was declared season-ending in May. They also have a fully fit squad that includes players that stood out during the T20 Blast.
