You cannot keep Rashid Khan down. His economy is a little over what we are used to seeing from him but being the top wicket-taker for his side is no surprise.

We would have backed Trent Rockets to chase down 126 in this match but the wickets kept falling and the runs slowed down. Gregory and Khan made the match look closer than it was. Losing 3 of the top4 batsman for a total of 7 runs is always going to make a run chase a struggle.

Birmingham Pheonix absolutely smashed the Welsh fire here. Thair took the first 5 for of the Hundred so far. Will Smeed and Ali looked in fine nick and Smeed would be a good pick for your dream 11 in this upcoming match.


Trent Rockets vs Birmingham Phoenix Match Prediction

The top 2 teams face off and the winner will be within 1 match of getting to the first Hundred final. There is a big incentive for both teams to really go for the win here. The form of the 2 is very similar – they are both very strong at home but not away. The loss of Moeen Ali to Birmingham Pheonix will come as a big blow as he has been in great form.

Predicted result: Trent Rockets to win
