Welsh Fire vs Trent Rockets: When & where to watch match Live, Probable XI, Fantasy XI

The Welsh Fire will meet the Trent Rockets in the 20th match of the inaugural edition of The Hundred to get back on the winning ways after missing their and England’s most prolific batsman in white-ball formats—Jonny Bairstow. 

The right-hander has gone to play for England in the Test series against India and the Fire have had to manage the campaign without him. Skipper Ben Duckett has picked up momentum with the bat but needs support from others such as Tom Banton, Glenn Phillips and James Neesham.

The Trent Rockets, on the other hand, have been able to put a near-perfect show so far in the competition and won three out of the four games played this season. The presence of experienced players of T20 format such as Alex Hales, D’arcy Short and Rashid Khan are giving them a competitive edge over other sides.

1st Test, Day 2 report: James Anderson halts India's dominance before rain plays spoilsport

If throwing away massive opportunity from the position of a lion in a game would have been an art, this Indian batting order under the leadership of Virat Kohli should be top-rated artists of it. Having started the day from 21/0 and then to 97/0 just before the lunch break, India gave a stiff competition to England in terms of collapse and slipped to 125/4 by the time rain arrived to frustrate both sides. Rohit’s familiar undoing Rohit Sharma was showing immense composure around his off stump, and even though he could not trap England bowlers to bowl straight to him, he was solid in his crease. He was mindful of England’s eagerness to induce him into driving through off side, and he did not take the bait for the longes part of his batting. The right-hander was looking set for a big one, but as they say, England’s newest talisman Ollie Robison tested the bounce off the pitch. Just minutes before his short ball to Rohit, Sky Sports commentators were discussing if England were one-dimensional in their approach and should they try short ball against Indian openers. On cue, Robinson got one to bounce high to Rohit’s right shoulder, and an impulsive hooker that Rohit is, hooked him straight to Sma Curran at deep square leg boundary to end yet another impressive innings that could well have been a career-defining one. It was not the first time Rohit went back to the pavilion in that manner. Earlier in the year, he had hooked Pat Cummins just minutes before the scheduled close of play to hand over the advantage to Australia. Rohit would do well to remember that getting starts in English conditions are the most difficult task for openers in Test cricket, and he should not be throwing his hard work and patience just for the poor application of shots. He should learn to deny himself the opportunity to go all guns blazing after picking up a short ball, and he would do well to remind himself that if only providing good platforms to the side was enough to leave a legacy, Cheteshwar Puajra would not have faced such critical observation every now and then. KL Rahul’s resurrection While Rohit threw away a good start and initial hard work, KL Rahul was in no mood to let go of the chance that came his way based on luck. He to was watchful around his off stump and their discipline compelled former England captain Andrew Strauss to say that “Indian batsmen are good to be watched at for a whole day”. He was vigilant but started cutting loose after the first hour of the day. He was eager to put bowlers under pressure and took full toll of overpitched deliveries from desperate England pacers. Sam Curran, used all the variations of his angle, to test his application, but after scoring crisp boundaries and regaining control around off stump, Rahul was ready with the front foot down the pitch of the ball to drive him down the ground and through the cover. He remained not out and his stay and score will dictate how far India will go in the game before unleashing Bumrah and Shami on the England batting group. Anderson wins first bout against Kohli Kohli was welcomed with resounding reception as a full house Trent Bride could sense what was coming. The duo has had a compelling history to excite fans of the game and the scrip did not look any different. Anderson was all over Kohli in the 2014 series, while the Indian skipper bounced back strongly in the next series in 2018. The contest between them started at a critical juncture of the game as England were looking to snatch the momentum back from India. The contest went fully in Anderson’s favour as an outstanding first delivery from the pacer drew Kohli reaching out away from his off stump and the ball caught the edge of his bat to leave England cock-a-hoop. Unarguably the most tenacious bowler to have ever played the game, Anderson brought England ahead in the game with two big wickets of Cheteshwar Pujara and Vira Kohli on two consecutive balls. Looking ahead to the third day The forecast for the third day does not seem to be too good compared to the second day of the game where the game was reduced to just one and a half sessions. However, if England would be able to see the back of one among Rahul or Rishabh Pant, they would feel confident of taking the first-innings lead. India would bank on Pant’s methods to cut down the current defect of 58 runs as quickly as possible and then building a lead over it to put the fragile England batting order under serious pressure. Rahuls’ composed presence at the crease will be critical for India as he can shift his gears according to changing situations of the game, and some half an hour of successful aggressive cricket can turn the tide back in India’s favour.

BAN vs AUS | 3rd T20I: Tigers smell historic series win over depleted Kangaroos

Bangladesh have an outstanding chance of attaining an unprecedented height in the third T20I of the series against Australia. They have won the first two T20Is of the series and can win their first series against the tourist for the first time in any format. Australia, on the other hand, will be desperate to keep the series alive although their prospect does not look too bright. They have missed their established players such as Aaron Finch, Glenn Maxwell, and Marcus Stoinis, but the failure of young players to step up their performances have let them down so far in the series. If it wasn’t for Mitchell Marsh’ brilliance with the bat, the situation could well have been much more embarrassing for the tourists in the series. On the other hand, Bangladesh spinners Mahedi Hasan and Nasum Ahmed, along with Mustafizur Rahma, who has a lot of tricks up his sleeve, have squeezed the Australian batsmen. Australia have been in such dire straits that two of the lowest total in their T20I history have come in the series so far and the agony does not seem to have a swift and pleasant end for them as well. Bangladesh vs Australia: Match Details Match Number- 03 Date and Time: 06 August, 2021, 05:30 pm IST, 06:00 pm Local, 12:00pm GMT Venue: Sher-E-Bangla Stadium, Dhaka Live Stream: FanCode Pitch report The pitches so far at the Shere Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur have been slow and lower in nature. The Australians were hoping for such conditions before hedging to the all-important T20 World Cup, but their performance will not give comforting signs to the team management. Team News Bangladesh Somya Sarkar has not been able to deliver so far in the series could face the heat. However, he is unlikely to be dropped from the third game of the series. Apart from him, Bangladesh should not contemplate making any change in the playing XI. Probable XI Mohammad Naim, Soumya Sarkar, Shakib Al Hasan, Mahmudullah (c), Nurul Hasan (wk), Afif Hossain, Shamim Hossain, Mahedi Hasan, Mustafizur Rahman, Shoriful Islam, Nasum Ahmed Australia The opening pair of Alex Carey and Josh Phillipe has been abysmal so far in the series. However, Australia don’t have too many options at the top of the order and will back the duo to finally translate their Big Bash performance onto the big stage. Probable XI Alex Carey, Josh Philippe, Mitchell Marsh, Moises Henriques, Matthew Wade (c & wk), Ashton Turner, Ashton Agar, Mitchell Starc, Andrew Tye, Adam Zampa, Josh Hazlewood Fantasy XI Matthew Wade, Moises Henriques, Nurul Hasan, Josh Phillipe, Mitchell Marsh (C), Shakib Al Hasan (VC), Nasun Ahmed, Shoriful Islam, Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood, Mustafizur Rahman
