Preview: After witnessing 2 complete games getting washed out, the home team, Manchester Originals are all set to lock horns against London Spirit. The latter team remains to be the only team in this competition who has not won a single game in the men's competition. Having said that, with a win, the home side could very well climb on top of the standings.
Analysis: Knowing that rain is going to play a big role in this encounter, the spinners are bound to make a difference in this contest. So far, the experienced London Spirit squad has not being able to put up a great show, but it could all change if leg-spinner Mason Crane and all-rounder Mohammad Nabi are put to good effect. On the other hand, the Originals have managed to work their way among the top ranks even when nature hasn’t been on their side.
Going into this match, Manchester Originals would be hoping that their top 5 batsmen could make a significant impact once again with the bat. With the bowling attack being led by the returning Matt Parkinson in this game, this team should be able to hold off their opposition right from the start.
