Oval Invincible and London Spirit will meet in the second match of The Hundred competition on August 4. Both the teams would be looking for a much-improved performance in the men's competition especially London Spirit as they finished at the bottom of the eight-team table in 2021. The Oval Invincibles finished fourth, narrowly missing out on making it into the top 3.
Before their match on Thursday, here is a look at what stats predict could happen in this match set to be staged at the Oval and who might eventually emerge as a winner.
1. Toss Prediction
Oval Invincible lost each of their last 3 tosses in the previous edition of the Hundred Men's Cricket competition. By contrast, London Spirit won 2 of their last 3 tosses in the previous edition of the competition. Going by this piece of stat, London Spirit could win the toss in this match.
2. Win Possibility
Oval Invincible are favourites to win this match. Not only did they have a much better season than London Spirit in the Hundred 2021 but they also registered a win against this opponent in their only match so far. So based on these considerations, Oval Invincible look favourites to win this match.
3. Team of the Day
The team of the Day is Oval Invincible. They had a much more consistent season last year than London Spirit and were the better team on display. It remains to be seen how they perform in a brand new edition of the tournament.
4. Powerplay Score (25 balls)
The average powerplay score at this venue in this 100-ball competition in the last 6 innings (3 matches) is 39.16. Predicting both teams to score over 35 in the first 25 balls of their innings.
5. Average Score
The average first innings score in all Hundred matches played at this venue is 126.6. Anything above140 would be tough to go past based on historical data.
