The eleventh match of The Hundred 2022 will see Manchester Originals locking horns with Trent Rockets in Manchester tomorrow at 7.00 PM IST.

Both teams have had entirely contrasting campaigns so far. While Trent Rockets have won both their games convincingly, Jos Buttler's Manchester Originals have suffered two successive crushing defeats. 

Trent Rockets have been absolutely clinical with both bat and ball. On the other hand, Manchester's batting has emerged as their biggest nemesis, which they would want to improve in tomorrow's encounter. 

Spotlight: Alex Hales

Hailed as one of the most aggressive batters in the world, Alex Hales has established himself as a prolific T20 opener by performing admirably over the years.  

image-l6q5fjdvHales has had two fabulous outings 

Contrary to the Vitality Blast 2022, Hales has exhibited incredible consistency in the Hundred so far, amassing 101 runs in two outings at a magnificent strike rate of 148.53. His fearless batting makes him a definite threat. Further, he will be up against Manchester's depleted bowling unit, which is why we choose him as our spotlight player for this match. 

Key Players

  • Dawid Malan got his mojo back, hammering a flamboyant 49-ball 88* against Northern Superchargers in the last game. 
  • Jos Buttler, the Originals' skipper, ensured a fighting total for his side in the first match, slamming a gorgeous 41-ball 59. 
  • Daniel Sams has emerged as Trent's most successful bowler, scalping six wickets in two games. 
  • Andre Russell, although hasn't fired yet, can't be underestimated considering his all-round caliber and vast experience.

Pitch Report: The last game at the venue witnessed 323 runs being scored, indicating the track's conduciveness for batting. So, we expect a flat batting deck on which the pacers will rely on their variations to succeed. The surface will more or less remain the same throughout, which is why the toss-winning team would like to chase in tomorrow's game.
