The last league game of the Men’s Hundred Competition 2023 will see Birmingham Phoenix lock horns with London Spirit at Edgbaston in Birmingham.

The Birmingham Phoenix are already out of the race for qualifying for the final of the competition. They managed to win only a single game out of seven and are languishing at the bottom of the points table. They lost to Trent Rockets in their last game.

Adam Milne picked up two wickets for Phoenix as they restricted the Rockets to 162/6. Jamie Smith top-scored with 38 while chasing but a lack of contributions from the other batters resulted in them losing the game by 46 runs.

London Spirit, on the other hand, have six points to their name in seven games. They stand eliminated from the competition as a win in their last league game will only get them to eight points which won’t be enough for them to qualify for the final. They suffered a loss against Welsh Fire in their last outing.

After electing to bat first, the Spirit’s batters faltered as they never got going and only managed to score 109 at the end of their innings. Daniel Worrall bowled brilliantly upfront and picked up three wickets but it wasn’t enough as they failed to defend the total. They will hope to come out on top in their last game on Thursday.
