The 10th game of The Hundred 2022 will be a top-of-the-table clash. London Spirit, who are at the top, will take on Southern Brave, who are placed second. The Rose Bowl in Southampton will host this clash on Friday, August 12.
Both teams are unbeaten so far in the tournament but it’s still early days and one of these two will have to taste their first defeat of the season in this fixture. The London Spirit, who have won both their games, are flying high and will aim for a hat-trick of wins that firmly cements their spot at the top of the table.
The London Spirit won a close contest against the Oval Invincibles in their first game of the season, getting over the line by just three runs. It was Nathan Ellis who had an impactful performance with the ball with a three-fer that helped his side topple the Invicibles.
Against Manchester Originals, they finished with a clinical win, sealing the game by a huge margin of 52 runs. Jordan Thompson turned up with the ball for the Spirit, snaring four wickets. Kieron Pollard impressed with a quickfire 34 off just 11 deliveries, showing promising signs of what we can expect further into the season.
As far as the Southern Brave are concerned, they won their first game quite comprehensively by nine wickets. Their bowling stood up in the opening game of the season and restricted Welsh Fire to a below-par score. It was the skipper, James Vince, who led from the front with the bat and scored a sublime 71 off just 41 deliveries, which never allowed Fire to get back into the contest.
