The fourth match of the Men's Hundred 2022 will see Trent Rockets (TRT) take on Birmingham Phoenix (BPH) at Trent Bridge in Nottingham on Saturday, August 6.
The Trent Rockets have a star-studded squad boasting sufficient depth and balance to warrant the early favorites tag coming into the Hundred. In addition to household names in Alex Hales and Rashid Khan, the Trent Rockets have added the likes of Colin Munro and Daniel Sams to the mix.
However, they face a tough assignment in the form of Birmingham Phoenix, who fell short in the final last season. They also have a resourceful squad headlined by Moeen Ali and Liam Livingstone and will fancy their chances of a win in this fixture.

Today's TRT vs BPH Dream11 match top picks
Chris Benjamin: Chris Benjamin was one of the breakout stars of the Hundred last year, impressing with his finishing and big-hitting skills in the middle order. He has grown in leaps and bounds since then, excelling in the T20 Blast for the Birmingham Bears. Given his added experience, he is one to watch out for in this game.
Alex Hales: Alex Hales is one of the best batters in this format with a heap of experience to fall back on. The Trent Rockets star has been in decent form in the T20 Blast and has a knack for scoring big runs. With the conditions also suiting Hales, who plays most of his English domestic cricket at Trent Bridge, he should be a good addition to your TRT vs BPH Dream11 fantasy team.
Moeen Ali: Moeen Ali has been in decent form himself, coming up with handy performances with both the bat and ball for England. He had a good Hundred campaign last time around, batting in the top order and holding his own as the support spinner for the Phoenix. With Moeen likely to play a prominent role once again, alongside Liam Livingstone, he is a must-have in your TRT vs BPH Dream11 fantasy team.
Rashid Khan: Rashid Khan is bound to be a popular pick in TRT vs BPH Dream11 fantasy teams and for good reason. He is perhaps the best bowler in white-ball cricket, with the Afghan leggie excelling in every franchise league he has played in. He was one of the standout bowlers in the previous edition as well and with Rashid adding value with the bat as well, he is another must-have.
