Oval Invincibles vs Manchester Originals Predictions

The Oval Invincibles on paper look the more rounded team. I am tipping them to take the win on home soil.

  • Oval Invincibles’ Jason Roy has scored 60, 32 & 64 runs in 3 of his last 4 limited overs matches.
  • Manchester Originals’ Jos Buttler has scored 50+ runs in 2 aof his last 3 T20 mathces.

Head to Head

These teams have never before met.

Oval Invincibles Form

The Oval Invincibles come into the inaugural season as second favourites according to bookmaker bet365. 

With The Hundred being the first ever professional tournament played in this format, it remains to be seen who can adapt first. The Invincibles have plenty of quality players from the T20 format, which one would imagine won’t differ too much in terms of playing style.

The balance of the team will be interesting to see considering that the six-ball over does not exist in this format.

Oval Invincibles Injuries & Team News

The Oval Invincibles have a number of international quality players. England’s Test opening batsman, Rory Burns will feature while allrounder Sam Curran will captain the side.

Tabraiz Shami is also in the squad but will only join after South Africa’s tour of Ireland is complete in a few days time. 

Jason Roy and Sam Billings are two big English stars. They were in the England squad that recently played against Pakistan so it remains to be seen whether they will feature in the opener.

Manchester Originals Form

The Manchester Originals are fourth favourite to win the 2021 The Hundred. Considering that it is a new format, the bookmakers have given all eight teams a fair crack at winning it.

The Originals will play their home games at Old Trafford. They not only have a strong squad, they also possess some in-from players. 

Phil Salt recently made his England debut while Jos Buttler is among the best T20 batsmen globally. This match will be the first ever of its kind in men’s cricket so it will be interesting to see the tactical approach of the Originals.

Manchester Originals Injuries & Team News

Jos Buttler leads the side and is undoubtedly the star. He played for England against Pakistan a couple of days ago so it is not confirmed whether he will play in the opener.

On the international front, New Zealand’s Colin Munro gives the Originals plenty of power hitting as well as versatility.
