Dawid Malan's show Powers Trent Rockets To 8-Wicket Win Over Manchester Originals
Malan scored an unbeaten 98 runs knock for the Trent Rockets
Riding on an explosive knock of unbeaten 98 by opener Dawin Malan, Trent Rockets cruised to an eight-wicket victory over Manchester Originals in the 11th match of The Hundred 2022 at Old Trafford on Saturday, August 13.
Manchester bowlers sent on leather hunt
Chasing a colossal total of 189, all Trent Rockets needed was a flying start and their openers did exactly as Alex Hales and Dawid Malan made a mockery of Manchester bowlers and battered them all around the park to notch up an 85-run opening stand.
While Alex Hales perished after scoring 38 off 20 balls, Malan continued his onslaught and played a stupendous inning of unbeaten 98 off 44 balls to help Trent Rockets overwhelm the target without a fuss.
Tom Kohler-Cadmore also played a breezy cameo of 27-ball 30 before Ian Cockbain tonked the winning runs for the Nottinghamshire-based franchise as the team won the match with six balls to spare.
For Manchester Originals, only Tom Hartley and Matt Parksion could manage to get a wicket.
