Match number 7 of The Hundred Men's Championship is slated to be played between the Trent Rockets and the Northern Superchargers at Trent Bridge, Nottingham on Monday. While the weekend saw two double headers being played in the competition, Monday will have just one contest. Both the teams have played a match before coming into this game but faced contrasting results. While the Trent Rockets won their first match by 9 wickets, the Northern Superchargers narrowly lost their first match of the tournament by 5 runs.
Marchant de Lange with a fifer in the first game could be a safe bet in the fantasy side also given his good form in the T20 Blast competition. Moreover, the likes of Alex Hales, D Arcy Short have been in good form for Trent Rockets while Hary Brook and Adam Lyth have been the star performers for Northern Superchargers with the bat. There is little to choose between the wicketkeepers as they haven't had much to do but if there is a place in the side, try and include both Tom Moores and John Simposon as they give the option of additional points with their keeping skills. Ben Stokes, Joe Root, Luke Wood, Lewis Gregory can all be good all-round options and even Rashid Khan is capable enough with the bat. If looking for just a solitary spinning option, Adil Rashid can be a good contender as well since he knows the conditions better. Choose your picks wisely with the pro tip being finalising the XI after the toss since these are early stages of the competition and teams would look to settle in for a combination as the tournament progresses.
