CRICKET

The Hundred, 1st Match: SOB vs WEF Match Preview, Playing XI, Match Details, Pitch Report & Match Prediction

Southern Brave vs Welsh Fire, Six Sports

England’s franchise cricket The Hundred will start from tomorrow in which the first match is between the Southern Brave and Welsh Fire. Last year, Southern Brave won the tournament after defeating Birmingham Phoenix by a margin of 32 runs. They would now like to replicate their performance against Welsh Fire.

Welsh Fire didn’t have a good outing last year in The Hundred as they finished 6th on the points table with just three wins. They would now try to perform better to finish at the top in the points table this year. Both teams have excellent local and outside players who have the calibre to perform well for their teams.

A very interesting match awaits us tomorrow between two top-quality teams. It will be a thrilling contest for everyone tomorrow.
