Manchester Originals Men will take on London Spirit in The Hundred
Manchester Originals Men will take on London Spirit in The Hundred

The Manchester Originals will face the London Spirit in the 24th match of the Hundred at the Emirates Old Trafford in Manchester on Tuesday (August 10). The Originals’ last game was washed out due to rain while the Spirit lost their previous fixture. It will be a cracker of a contest as both teams look to come out fast and make up lost ground.

Manchester Originals are placed fourth in the table with six points to their name. They have won two out of their five matches with two being washed out. They started the competition with a loss but seem to have found the winning formula. Unfortunately, the rain gods haven’t been kind to them.

The Originals have a good balanced side. The overseas players in Colin Munro, Carlos Brathiwaite and Lockie Ferguson have been brilliant. The team have got some good experienced bowlers in Steven Finn and Matthew Parkinson who have troubled the opposition batsmen. The Manchester Originals are certainly a side to look out for going ahead in the competition.

The London Spirit, on the other hand, are reeling at the bottom of the table. They haven’t managed to win a single game in the competition so far and have lost four of their five matches with one being washed out. They only have one point under their belt and a playoff berth seems to be beyond their reach.

Nothing has gone right for the Spirit. They have a number of T20 superstars on their side but have failed to live up to their expectations. The players have failed to fire in unison as they haven’t got any momentum behind them. They need to get their combination right against the Originals to stand any chance of qualifying for the finals.

Weather report:

The pitch at Old Trafford is a two-paced, with something in it for everyone. There is a grip on the surface which has allowed the spinners to have an impact. With the overcast conditions around, the batsmen need to be careful while playing their shots.
