Match prediction and cricket betting tips for Manchester Originals vs Oval Invincibles The Hundred 2022. The match will be played at the Emirates Old Trafford, Manchester on the 31st of August 2022.
MAO vs OVI Team Previews
Manchester Originals have a strong batting lineup and that is the reason why they have been so dangerous this season. Phil Salt has impressed at the top of the order with his power and consistency while Tristan Stubbs has proved beyond doubt that he is one of the most exciting young batters in the world.
Laurie Evans, Will Madsen, and Ashton Turner ensure that the Manchester Originals do not have to worry about being dependent on one or two batters. Jos Buttler is obviously missing from this lineup because of injury and while that is a massive loss, the Originals have shown that they are capable of recovering from that.
The Manchester Originals bowling unit is led by Hartley and Klaassen. Matt Parkinson has bowled well in a few matches but can also be very expensive when he is not at his best. The bowling attack is a bit short on quality and that can let the team down.
Manchester Originals Playing 11
Ashton Turner, Tristan Stubbs, Joshua Little, Laurie Evans, Matt Parkinson, Philip Salt, Paul Walter, Richard Gleeson, Tom Hartley, Tom Lammonby, Wayne Madsen.
The Oval Invincibles have found a way to stay alive in the race for the playoffs largely through the performances of Sam Curran. He has been superb and contributed with both bat and ball this season. His three wickets in the previous match were decisive in keeping London Spirit to a low total and we have seen him win matches with the bat as well.
The Oval Invincibles will need more than just one man to stand up and perform, though.
Rilee Rossouw, Will Jacks, and Sam Billings can get the runs needed while Matt Milnes, Pat Brown, and Tom Curran will play crucial roles with the bat.
There is no doubt about the quality of this lineup but the recent form of most of the players has not been encouraging.
Oval Invincibles Playing 11
Peter Hatzoglou, Danny Briggs, Hilton Cartwright, JM Cox, Matt Milnes, Nathan Sowter, Rilee Rossouw, Sam Curran, Sam Billings, Tom Curran, Will Jacks.

Pitch and Conditions
The conditions in Manchester are expected to be favorable for cricket. The pitch should be full of runs as we have seen this season already. 149 was defended against a weak Welsh Fire batting in the previous match played at Manchester but 189 was chased down with ease in the one before that.
We think a par score here is somewhere in the range of 160.
