The Moeen Ali-led Birmingham Phoenix must be very disappointed with the weather, as their first two games against Northern Superchargers and Trent Rockets were abandoned due to relentless rain. They were in action for the second time in their third fixture against the Manchester Originals, where they had faced a huge 49-run defeat.
Birmingham's batting unit failed entirely, while Benny Howell was the only bowler with a positive outing. Captain Moeen will be hoping his side to bounce back from this adversity and earn their first win in this game against the Welsh franchise.
On the other hand, the Tom Abell-led Welsh Fire started their campaign with a win against Manchester Originals but couldn't sustain the momentum and fell short against Southern Brave in a last-over thriller.
Additionally, they were involved in a tie against Oval Invincibles in their last outing. As a result, the Cardiff-based franchise is placed fourth in the points table with three points in three games.
It has been a consistent performance from the men in red, but they have failed to finish games in their favour at the end. They will be keen not to repeat their mistakes and win such close games, which will have a major impact on their knockout race.
