Ben Duckett was outstanding in the last match.
Welsh Fire will go one-on-one against Southern Brave in the 8th match of the Hundred Men’s on Tuesday. Welsh Fire made a good start to their tournament campaign with a thrilling 5-run victory against the Superchargers. Jonny Bairstow will probably play his last match in this tournament since he is named in the England squad ahead of the India Test series, and Welsh Fire will like to take advantage of his services.
On the other hand, Southern Brave handed an easy win to the Trent Rockets in their opening game. Batting first they managed to score only 126 runs in the 100 balls. They failed to defend the modest of totals and lost the match by 9 wickets. They lack experience in middle-order, which is their main area of concern.
