Oval Invincibles

Oval Invincibles were labeled as one of the most balanced sides of this tournament. They have stars from all around the world in all departments whether it’s bowling or batting, they are filled with many megastars. They are in 6th position with one win and one loss and one wash-out. A match against Welsh Fire will be crucial for them to get in the rhythm.

The Oval side is yet to finalize their batting order, in 1st match they sent Sam Curran to open the innings but in the last match, Will Jacks opened the innings with Jason Roy. Most of their players are in top-notch form and they are led by a young exciting leader Sam Billings. If this Oval side gets their lineup sorted then they will be the force to reckon with in this tournament.

Welsh Fire

Welsh Fire is an exciting team and they started this tournament with some splendid performances. In the first two matches, they crushed their opponents. They will be now missing their captain and star batsman Jonny Bairstow, who was the tournament’s top run-getter before leaving the league for International commitments. They will be led by Ben Duckett, who lost his first match as captain in the previous match. 

Despite missing Jonny Bairstow, they scored 150 runs in the last match. Their batting is very young but they have some explosive players like Tom Banton and Glenn Phillips. Ben Duckett has also been in good form but their main area of concern is in the bowling department. Apart from Qais Ahmed, no one else has impressed so far. Welsh Fire is a young side and has given some impressive performances, and it will be interesting to see if they can stop the star-studded Oval Invincibles team.

  • Form Guide L-W-W
  • Ben Duckett is 3rd highest active run-scorer of the tournament.
  • Welsh Fire has the worst RPB in the tournament.

OVI vs WEF– Who will win the match, Today Match Prediction:

Oval Invincibles expected to win the match against Welsh Fire

KhelTalk experts feel that Oval Invincibles will win against Welsh Fire in the 16th match of The Hundred Men. Oval Invincibles is a very strong balanced team. They have some out-and-out match-winners like Jason Roy, Sunil Narine, and Sam Billings in their ranks. Despite missing English international Sam Curran, they are looking strong but on the other hand, after missing Jonny Bairstow, Welsh Fire looked confused in the last match. They are missing him more as a captain as compared to a batsman. The bowling will be the main area of concern for Welsh Fire. We expect Oval Invincibles to win this contest.

Top Batsman from Welsh Fire – Ben Duckett (3.50 odds)

Ben Duckett is the 4th highest run-getter of this tournament. After his strong performances, he is now promoted as captain after Jonny Bairstow’s departure. He has scored 120 odd runs at an explosive strike rate of 153, he is batting at number 3 and is playing the anchor role for them. He has improved his game against spinners and we expect him to give returns on the batting-friendly pitch of Oval.

Top Batsman from Oval Invincibles– Jason Roy (3.25 odds)

Jason Roy is a mandatory pick for everyone. He is one of the most destructive batsmen in the world. So far, he has not shown his actual talent but has given some glimpses of potential. He scored a vital 52 runs in the last match on a slow track but was unable to take the Oval side home. In this match, he will be playing on a batting-friendly surface and he can give you massive returns if he gets in.

Top Bowler from Welsh Fire– Qais Ahmed (4.00 odds)

Qais Ahmed is a mysterious leg spinner from Afghanistan. He is a renowned name in various global T20 leagues and again in the new format, he has showcased his talent. He has picked 4 wickets so far and is the only bowler from the Welsh Fire team who has troubled batsmen. In a shorter format, margins for errors are very less, and Qais Ahmed has built a strong reputation after delivering in crunch moments. He can trouble batsmen with his googlies and give you good returns. He is our pick for best bowler from the Welsh Fireteam.

Top Bowler from Oval Invincibles – Tabraiz Shamsi (4.25 odds)

Tabraiz Shamsi is arguably the best bowler of 2021. He has been in incredible form in T20I recently. In 2021, no other bowler has picked more wickets than the South African chinaman bowler. His variations were always tough to pick but now he has added accuracy which has made him one of the most lethal white-ball bowlers. He has come as a replacement for Sandeep Lamichhane and is set to light up The Hundred tournament with his funky celebrations and incredible bowling.
