The much-anticipated The Hundred is set to kick off from July 21, with Oval Invincibles locking horns with Manchester Originals in the opening game of the men’s tournament. The inaugural edition of England’s new 100-ball tournament will see eight teams (men’s and women’s simultaneously) competing against each other. Both the teams look strong and equally balanced. Moreover, a thrilling encounter can be expected between the two teams.
Oval Invincibles look one of the strongest and perfectly balanced sides of The Hundred. Batsmen Jason Roy and all-rounder Sam Curran should be the must haves in one’s fantasy team as they could fetch some good points. Additionally, the two can act as good captain choices too. Further, from the bowlers, Saqib Mahmood, Reece Topley can be a couple of good choices that can turn out to be a masterstroke.
Just like their opponents, Manchester also seems a strong side and will provide a tough fight to its opponents. Jos Buttler and Carlos Brathwaite look like the best picks from the franchise, alongside Colin Munro, who can also be a good choice for vice-captain. Additionally, Lockie Ferguson and Matt Parkinson can fetch some good points from the bowling department.
