The Hundred 2022, match 19: BHM vs SUP Fantasy Preview and MPL Top Picks

Match: Birmingham Phoenix vs Northern Superchargers (BHM vs SUP)

Date: August 19, Friday, 11:00 PM IST

Venue: Edgbaston Cricket Ground, Birmingham, United Kingdom

Birmingham Phoenix will take on Northern Superchargers in the 19th game of the men’s Hundred 2022 at the Edgbaston Cricket Ground in Birmingham. After being defeated in their opening game, Birmingham Phoenix have won their next three matches on a trot. In their most recent match, the Phoenix beat Trent Rockets by seven wickets. After restricting Rockets to a first innings total of 145, Phoenix chased down the target with 14 balls to spare. Moeen Ali and Liam Livingstone scored half centuries, while earlier in the game, Benny Howell picked up three wickets for the Phoenix.

Northern Superchargers, on the other hand, have won just one of their four games so far and will be desperately looking to stay afloat in the competition. They won their opening game, and lost the next three. They come into this contest on the back of a seven-wicket win over London Spirit. Batting first, the Superchargers scored 143 runs, with Faf du Plessis scoring a half century. Their bowlers, however, were not too effective on the day as Spirit chased down the target comfortably. After three straight losses, the Supercharges will look to bounce back in the next game against Phoenix.

Five players to watch out for

Here we list five players you must pick in your MPL fantasy XI for BHM vs SUP  

Liam Livingstone – all-rounder, Birmingham Phoenix

Liam Livingstone scored an unbeaten half century in Phoenix’s latest game against Trent Rockers. His unbeaten 51 came off 32 balls at a strike rate of almost 160.  Earlier in the tournament, he scored 47 off 28 against the Rockets. Livingstone was the highest run-scorer of the Men’s Hundred 2021, where he scored 348 runs in nine matches at an average and strike rate of 58 and 178. He also hit the maximum number of boundaries for any player last season – 22 fours and 27 sixes. Among the most swashbuckling white-ball players, Livingstone makes for a great pick in your fantasy cricket team.

Moeen Ali – all-rounder, Birmingham Phoenix

Another all-rounder important to your fantasy cricket team is Moeen Ali, who scored 52 off 28 balls at a strike rate of over 185 in Phoenix’s most recent game. The England all-rounder brings with him plenty of experience – in 55 T20 internationals, Moeen Ali has a batting average and strike rate of 19.77 and 144.60 along with 39 wickets.

Benny Howell – bowler, Birmingham Phoenix

Benny Howell has picked up five wickets in four games, including three wickets in the most recent game against Trent Rockets. Although Howell is uncapped, he has good numbers in T20s – 179 wickets from 174 matches. After his spell in the game against Rockets, Howell makes for a good pick in your fantasy team.

Adam Lyth – batsman, Northern Superchargers

Adam Lyth scored 79 runs off just 33 balls against Oval Invincibles and 51 runs off 30 balls against Manchester Originals. Lyth has an impressive strike rate of almost 150 in 162 T20s. A good striker of the ball, Lyth is in good form and can help you score points in your fantasy cricket team.

Faf du Plessis – batsman, Northern Superchargers

After three unsuccessful outings, Faf du Plessis bounced back to form and scored a half century in the game against Spirit. A proven match winner in franchise cricket, the South African is a good pick for your team’s captaincy.
