In today’s match, it will be Southern Brave who are hosting the Trent Rockets at Southampton. It is the second-last game for both teams and each will try to bring out a positive result from this one. Talking about the teams, then Southern Brave have won only 2 of their 6 games and are sitting in the second-last position in the points table. While they had a good start in the tournament by winning the opening game against Welsh Fire, they couldn’t carry on that winning streak in the next four matches.
On the other hand, the Rockets are surely flying high for Trent as they have won 5 of their 6 matches in the tournament and are first in the points table. They only have a single loss which was to Birmingham Phoenix last Monday. Their last game was against London Spirit which they won rather comfortably by chasing down 123 runs.
So, both teams will look to gain more points, especially Southern Brave who need this win more than Trent Rockets.

In the three matches of Hundred played here, only a score of 150 has been reached only once in the season. Talking about the average score so it is usually only above 140 in the first innings. The pitch favours bowlers more than batters and the latter have found it difficult to score at this venue than at the others. Fast bowlers are more dominant on this pitch and find ample support from the surface.
