Tomorrow, it will be the Manchester Originals who will be taking on Welsh Fire for the 16th Match of The Hundred. Talking about their last games, then Manchester Originals have got yet another defeat as they lost against the Trent Rockets by a very narrow margin. Although they had put a huge target of 190 for the Rockets, the bowlers did not perform well and thus the Rockets won the match by eight wickets.
Welsh Fire too got their third defeat of the season as they lost to Birmingham Phoenix. Although the target was quite easy for Welsh Fire, they still fell four runs short of it. Both teams will now look to relinquish themselves before it’s too late for either of them. We do have an exciting contest on our hands.

Top Picks for MNR vs WEF Dream11 Match:
Although he played an excellent knock of 70 from 46 balls in the last match against the Trent Rockets, the effort was not enough to guarantee the Originals a win. Against London Spirit, Salt scored 36 runs and is now the highest run-scorer for his team this season. He has a total of 107 runs.
Parkinson is doing really well this season for the Originals in place of Sri Lankan spinner Wanindu Hasaranga. So, far he has a wicket in every match and is quite economical as well.
He has scores of 41 and 59 in his two out of three matches this season and he is a better keeper than Salt and Tom Banton. Buttler is an in-form player for the Originals.
In his last match against Birmingham Phoenix, Miller made 35 from 30 balls and he is an important factor for Welsh Fire. Against England, Miller scored 54 runs in two T20I matches. After this year’s IPL, he has been struggling to find his form.
He had to miss two Hundred matches due to national duties for South Africa. But, against Birmingham Phoenix, he was able to make only 4 runs and could not take any wicket. But, as Welsh Fire have no other all-rounder options to pick from.
Scrimshaw has been in really good form when playing in the Vitality T20 Blast for the past few years and is also the best bowler for Welsh Fire so far. In the last match, he was able to take two wickets and gave away only 22 runs. Against the Invincibles, he took a wicket but gave away 31 runs.
Players to avoid for MNR vs WEF Dream11 Match:
He is a pretty experienced batsman who has over 20000 runs in the domestic circuit against his name. In the opening game against the Superchargers, he even made 43 runs. However, in the second match, he made only 9 runs and did not get to bat in the last game.
The Welsh Fire opener scored a duck in the last match against Phoenix. He will have to make some runs at the top if he wants his team to win their first match.
