Edgbaston Cricket Ground Pitch Report

The Edgbaston Cricket Ground consists of a sporting surface. Hence, there will be something for both the bowlers and batters alike as the game progresses. Pacers will be able to swing the ball in the early overs of the game while spinners might get assistance later in the game. After the first few overs, the pitch becomes relatively easier to bat on because batters can rely on the bounce of the wicket.

The outfield of the stadium is fairly fast, and batters will be rewarded for their shots. Even the shorter boundaries will benefit the batters. Therefore, the team that wins the toss will prefer to bat first at this venue.

Probable Best Batter of the Match

Luke Wells – Welsh Fire (WEF)

In the encounter between Birmingham Phoenix and Welsh Fire, Luke Wells will be the one player to watch out for. With 93 runs from three games at an average of 31.00, the opening batter is the current leading run-getter for the Welsh Fire. Moreover, Wells is also the second-highest run-getter in the ongoing tournament. He scored a half-century for Welsh Fire in their inaugural game against the Manchester Originals, which they won by nine runs. He is expected to demonstrate his hitting abilities in the forthcoming match to help his team earn their first victory over the Phoenix.

Shaheen Afridi- Welsh Fire (WEF)

The ace Pakistan pacer Shaheen Afridi will be the key bowler in the clash between Birmingham Phoenix and Welsh Fire. The lanky speedster is currently the leading wicket-taker in the ongoing tournament with five wickets from three games, at an average of 12.40, and an economy rate of 7.44. During his debut game in The Hundred, he picked up two wickets against the Manchester Originals in the first two balls he bowled. Therefore, Shaheen Afridi will be quite eager to bowl yet another outstanding spell in the upcoming game.
