KhelTalk is the only destination that brings you the finest today’s match prediction that you can trust. We are here for WEF vs. LNS Today Match Prediction, 32nd Match, The Hundred Men Online Cricket Betting Tips, which will provide every user with a clear picture of which team and in what aspect they can place their bets.

London Spirit

The London Spirit team is already out of the tournament but there is a lot to play for them now as winning the last match will help them to escape last place humiliation. London Spirit had a strong squad before the start of the tournament and were labelled as contenders for the team. The Hundred is a new format and success in T20Is didn’t guarantee success in this format as well. Despite having some big T20Is players from around the world, they have struggled badly and are now at the bottom of the table.

London Spirit sits at the bottom of the table but it doesn’t show the full picture. Except the match against Northern Superchargers, they have lost all matches by the fewest of margins. In the last match also against Oval Invincibles, they were cruising towards a victory but heroics from Laurie Evans gave them defeat by 2 wickets. This will be the last match for them in the tournament and now the battle is against avoiding the last place to give some smiles back to fans.

  • Form Guide L-W-L-L-L-D-L
  • London Spirit have lost 2 matches by less than 10 runs margins and 2 matches by less than 3 wickets out of their 5 losses.

Top Batsmen 

  • Josh Inglis- 101 runs at 123.17 strike rate 
  • Eoin Morgan– 126 runs at 127.27 strike rate
  • Rossington- 124 runs at 156.96 strike rate 

Top Bowler

  • Mohammad Nabi- 6 wickets at 1.12 RBP
  • Mason Crane-  5 wickets at 1.11 RPB
  • Mohammad Amir- 3 wickets at 1.71 RPB

Welsh Fire

Welsh Fire is in the horrendous form right now. After winning the first 2 matches, they have now lost 5 matches on the trot. Their downfall started soon after Johnny Bairstow left their camp for National Duty. They are not missing him at batting but at the leadership scene, they are missing his abilities as captain. Ben Duckett is leading this team in his absence. He has performed really well on a personal note but he has big boots to fill in the Leadership department.

Welsh Fire is currently sitting at the 7th spot. They have only one game left and now they are fighting to escape last place humiliation. A win here at home will finally give fans some smiles as they have suffered a lot in this tournament. For that, they need to sort out their bowling department. Apart from Qais Ahmed, no one has even trouble batsmen and if this continues then surely Welsh Fire will finish at bottom of the table.

  • Form Guide L-L-L-L-W-W
  • Ben Duckett is the highest run-scorer of the tournament.

Top Batsmen 

  • Ben Duckett- 226 runs at 137.80 strike rate 
  • Jonny Bairstow- 128 runs at 170.66 strike rate  
  • Glenn Phillips- 134 runs at 120.72 strike rate         

Top Bowlers

  • Qais Ahmed- 8 wickets at 1.17 RPB 
  • Jimmy Neesham-  7 wickets at 1.51 RPB

Weather Report

The Weather will be perfect to play. There is no significant chance of rain and finally, we will be able to see a full contest between bat and ball. Since it is an evening game, the wind will give an extra edge to seam bowlers in initial overs.

  • Rain: 10%
  • Humidity 79%
  • Wind speed: 14 km/h.
  • Temperature- 17 Degree Celsius

Pitch Report

The Sophia Gardens pitch has been tailor-made for stroke players this season. It is the only pitch whose average score has been more than 150 runs in this tournament. In the one match here, Welsh Fire scored mammoth 165 runs. Pitch is again expected to be good and we might witness another run-fest. Seamers might get help early on. It will be interesting what captains will choose after winning the toss as there are possibilities of pitch becoming slower in 2nd innings.

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

London Spirit is expected to win the match against Welsh Fire 

KhelTalk experts feel that London Spirit will win against Welsh Fire in the encounter. London Spirit key players have finally come back to form but at the wrong stage of the tournament. Their batting has clicked in the last matches and is looking really dangerous. On the other hand, Welsh Fire is on the tournament’s worst losing streak. They have lost 5 matches on the trot and their future is looking dark. Since Johnny Bairstow has left, no one except Ben Duckett has taken the responsibility and they are looking in a complete mess right now. London Spirit will defeat Welsh Fire in the match.

Top Batsman from London Spirit- Adam Rossington (4.50 odds)

Adam Rossington has been phenomenal for London Spirit’s ever since coming into the team. The London side was struggling after Zak Crawley went to National duty which led to a big hole in the batting department. Eoin Morgan decided to promote 28-year-old Somerset regular to the opening spot and he has been fantastic in powerplay overs. Adam is the team’s 2nd highest run-getter even after playing two fewer games. He is explosive and has a strike rate of more than 150. He can give you good returns on the good batting track of Cardiff.

Top Batsman from Welsh Fire – Ben Duckett (3.75 odds)

Ben Duckett is the highest run-getter of this tournament. He has scored 226 runs at a healthy strike rate of 138. Ever since Johnny Bairstow has left the team, he has not only replaced him as captain but is leading from the front in the batting department despite no one supporting him. 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 Cardiff.

Top Bowler from Welsh Fire– Qais Ahmed (3.75 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 8 wickets so far at an impressive 1.17 RPB.

He 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 Fire.

Top Bowler from London Spirit – Bradley Wheal (3.75 odds)

Bradley Wheal has shocked the cricketing world so far with his fast and furious bowling in The Hundred. The Scottish fast bowler has just played 2 games and already is London’s 2nd highest wicket-taker. He has picked 6 wickets at a devastating 6.66 average and at an incredible 1.00 RPB.

He bowls in powerplay and death overs as well. He is a skiddy bowler and trouble batsman with his rising bouncers. He is just 24-year-old with full energy and would want to give another energetic performance in the last match of the tournament. He is our pick for best bowler from London Spirit.
