Top 3

Patel has chipped in with 47 runs too. Short has the highest score so far with 69 not out followed closely bet Malan with 62 not out. Both have been prolific at hitting the boundary with Short on 16 fours and 2 sixes and Malan on 12 fours and 4 sixes. These 2 players are pivotal to the batting lineup for Trent Rockets.

Trent Rockets Top Bowlers

Top 3 bowlers

  1. M de Lange – 8 wickets
  2. Rashid Khan – 8 wickets
  3. M Carter – 5 wickets

The signing of Rashid Khan by the Trent Rockets was a masterstroke. He is, in our option, the best short spell bowler in world cricket and will always take wickets. The surprise for us is the economy of 7.35, as he is usually around 6 and under. Carter has done well in 3 matches with an economy of 6.87.

Top 3 Bowlers for Trent Rockets vs Birmingham Phoenix

The Trent rockets had a surprise defeat in their last match losing convincingly to the Birmingham Pheonix. They put on 144/6 which seemed a reasonable score only to see it chased down in 75 balls! This seems more of a blip than a drop in form. They could just not handle the hitting of Will Smeed who smashed 36 from 13 balls and Finn Allen who got 43 from 23 balls.


Welsh Fire vs Trent Rockets Match Prediction

The Rockets were flying before the loss to Birmingham Pheonix. That was a surprise result but it does not take away from how well Trent Rockets have been performing. Welsh Fire have been doing well-getting runs but they are very up and down with 2 wins and 2 defeats from 4 matches so far.

Predicted Result: Trent Rockets win in a high scoring match!
