Something has to give at Trent Bridge

Alex Hales

Wednesday sees another double-header in The Hundred as both the men’s and women’s teams of the Trent Rockets and Oval Invincibles meet at Trent Bridge (Match Winner – Trent Rockets Men 4/5, Oval Invincibles 20/21).

The teams can’t be split in either the men’s or women’s competitions, with both in the latter sat on two points, while in the former, the pair are tied on six.

After an opening defeat in the men’s tournament, the Invincibles head to Trent Bridge on the back of three straight victories.

The Rockets, meanwhile, have found a happy knack of winning when chasing, doing so three times and have the tournament’s top scorer in Dawid Malan (23/10 Trent Rockets Top Run Scorer), while Alex Hales (13/5) is fourth in that metric.

For their part, the Invincibles have Will Jacks (11/4 Oval Invicnbles Top Run Scorer), who is the tournament’s second highest scorer so a big-hitting contest could be on the agenda.

That said, neither are shabby with the ball. Sunil Narine (13/5 Invincibles Top Wicket Taker) has taken tournament figures of 8-80 for the Invincibles, while Trent’s Daniel Sams (11/4 Trent Rockets Top Wicket Taker) has collected 6-80.

Before that, Trent Rockets Women and Oval Invincibles Women meet at 15:30 (Match Winner – Trent Rockets Women 4/5, Oval Invincibles Women 4/5).

Both lost last time out, with the Rockets losing by eight wickets to the Phoenix, while the Invincibles went down by 12 runs to Southern Brave.

Trent’s batting has looked worryingly light in 2022, totalling just 235 across their two innings, someway short of the Invincibles’ 287.

They do, though, have talent, with Nat Sciver 11/4 to be her team’s top run scorer. However, the Invincibles have last year’s top run scorer Dane van Niekerk (4/1 Invincibles Top Run Scorer) who is due a score after missing out against the Brave.
