After some grueling encounters in cricket's newest format, the stage is finally set for the top two teams to win the inaugural edition of The Hundred Men’s Championship. Birmingham Phoenix and Southern Brave will be up against each other in the ultimate showdown, which will be played at the home of cricket. With some big names on display and a magnificent trophy up for grabs, the fans can be guaranteed to witness an action-packed end to this exciting tournament on Saturday at Lord's.
Liam Livingstone is the man to watch out for as the Birmingham Phoenix all-rounder is in the form of his life, having scored 302 runs in the tournament at a strike-rate of 171.59. The right-handed batsman is timing the ball to perfection and could be in for another match-winning knock in the finals. On the other hand, the responsibility to score runs lies on the shoulders of James Vince who has also been in good touch in the tournament.
Although Finn Allen is set to miss the finals, Moeen Ali's return to Birmingham Phoenix playing XI gives them a much-needed balance in their side. Adam Milne, Imran Tahir and Chris Jordan have ben the bowlers who have been among wickets. They should definitely be a part of your fantasy side for the grand finale.
