Birmingham Phoenix has risen to third in the standings with three wins out of four. It has been one of the most exciting teams to watch in the Hundred 2022 tournament so far and will be playing against the Northern Superchargers next.
Birmingham Phoenix has a strong batting lineup that centers around Moeen Ali and Liam Livingstone. Adding Matthew Wade in the middle order is also a good move since it gives them an experienced player to handle the pressure situations. Tom Helm, Benny Howell, Moeen Ali, and Kane Richardson all form an excellent bowling lineup. This is a very smart bowling attack that excels in the shortest format of the game. Also not to be missed is Moeen Ali's captaincy and handling of his bowlers.
The Northern Superchargers have struggled badly in the Hundred this season and the stats tell you quite clearly why. Adam Lyth is the only batter with more than 100 runs to his name so far, not a single batter has a strike rate of more than 200, and the bowling attack is one of the weakest in the competition. Dwayne Bravo, Wahab Riaz, and Roelof van der Merwe are excellent performers of the past. They are all well beyond their best and that is affecting the team's performances. Adil Rashid is also struggling to pick up wickets and that is a massive concern as well.
PITCH AND CONDITIONS
The conditions in Birmingham are expected to be quite good for match day. There is no rain forecast and the pitch should be good for batting. Birmingham scored 176 in the first match played at this venue in 2022 and 145 was chased down with ease in the second one.
