Manchester Originals vs Welsh Fire The Hundred Match Prediction
Match: MNR vs WEF Match Prediction
Time: 16 Aug, 11:00 PM (IST)
Series: The Hundred Match
Venue: Old Trafford – Manchester, England
MNR vs WEF Dream11 Prediction:
- Jos Buttler scored 41 runs from 25 balls at the top of the order on Saturday and we are backing him again to be Manchester Originals’ highest run scorer in this match. With the ball, Matt Parkinson took 1-36 against Trent Rockets and he is a strong choice to be Manchester Originals’ top wicket taker against Welsh Fire.
- Tom Banton has lost his place at the top of England’s white ball teams but scored 44 runs from 32 balls for Welsh Fire against Birmingham Phoenix. Banton is our pick for Welsh Fire’s highest run scorer in this match. Adam Zampa got the wicket of fellow Australian Matthew Wade in Cardiff and we expect the spinner to enjoy this surface and to end the game as the top wicket taker for Welsh Fire.
- We recommend backing Jos Buttler to hit over 23.5 in this clash.

Weather & Pitch Report:
The temperature will be dropping from the early 20s to the high teens during this fixture. There is also an outside chance of some rain interrupting play.
We saw a hat-trick at Emirates Old Trafford in the Women’s Hundred game on Saturday. Expect to see plenty of turn-off the pitch in this match.
There will be a temptation to throw caution to the wind and to choose to bat first for both sides. However, they will both know that they can get back into this tournament and will want to field first.

MNR vs WEF Team News:
MNR Team News:
In spite of a 52 run defeat against London Spirit last Monday, the Originals picked the same XI for their closer defeat against Trent Rockets. Permitted there are no injuries in the camp, which we currently believe there not to be, we expect to see the saem XI selected.
WEF Team News:
Ryan Higgins and Ollie Pope were both left-out before the fixture against Birmingham Phoenix. Pope, due to England’s up-coming Test against South Africa, with Higgins seemingly rested after picking up two wickets against Oval Invincibles. We like the look of the bowling attack from the last game and do not expect any changes.

Who will win today’s match: MNR vs WEF The Hundred Match Fantasy Team
Losing runs always come to an end at some point and this game will do just that for one of these teams, or both if the rain intervenes! Welsh Fire came within five runs of winning their last match but we do expect Manchester Originals to get the win and to be too strong in this match.
Manchester Originals are favorites to beat Welsh Fire
MNR Key Players:
The England white-ball skipper has scored over 100 runs across his three innings in the tournament so far. He is an expert at understanding which ends to attack the bowler from.
The keeper-batter hit 70 not-out from 46 balls on Saturday. Batting at the top of the order, Salt hit six fours and two sixes to finish with a strike-rate of 152.17.
The England international spinner got the wicket of the dangerous Alex Hales against Trent Rockets and has taken a wicket in each of the three defeats so far.
WEF Key Players:
The heady international days of Banton’s career already seem a long time ago as he has not appeared for England since January of this year. However, Saturday’s innings was a timely reminder to the selectors.
The aggressive middle-order batter struck 35 not out from 30 balls in Cardiff on Saturday. The South African has gratefully taken on the finisher role for the side.
The Australian spinner will be looking forward to bowling on this ground. This is the pitch where Shane Warne bowled Mike Gatting and Alana King took a hat-trick on Saturday so it holds strong memories for Australians.
MNR vs WEF Team Form:
MNR Team Form:
- Manchester Originals have clocked up five successive defeats in the Men’s Hundred but did look more threatening in their last defeat.
WEF Team Form:
- Welsh Fire have had to contend with Jonny Bairstow missing The Hundred 2022 and Ben Duckett receiving a Lions’ call-up but they have been unable to win a game.
