London Spirit v Welsh Fire
Wednesday 24 August, 18:30
TV: Live on Sky Sports
Spirit suffered their first defeat of the campaign against Rockets last time out. After losing Glenn Maxwell they went with fellow Aussie Ben McDermott instead of Josh Inglis.
Possible XI: Rossington, Bell-Drummond, McDermott, Lawrence, Morgan, Pollard, Thompson, Dawson, Ellis, Wood, Crane
Fire should have Ish Sodhi available after Adam Zampa left for Australia duty. It seems a waste of everyone's time, though considering Fire have played five matches and are yet to win.
Possible XI: Clarke, Bethell, Cobb, Duckett, Miller, Du Plooy, Critchley, Pretorius, Sodhi, Payne, Ball
There has been only one game at Lord's so far with Spirit posting 160. But if Fire bat first we can expect to play the under lines, which is likely to be mid 140s for them. They've scored more than 145 once in either dig this innings. Bet the runs line here.
How to play
Spirit are 1.564/7 and a victory keeps the heat on Rockets in that all-important race to first spot. Fire are 2.789/5 but it's hard to make a case for a trade considering their consistently awful batting. Bet the match odds here
How to play
Eoin Morgan and Kieron Pollard catch the eye with Sportsbook at 13/2 and 9/1 respectively for Spirit but you might get bigger in-play. McDermott is 7/2. For Fire, Dwaine Pretorius, who has batted at No 3 for South Africa, might be promoted so the 22/1 is an option. Bet the Sportsbook markets here.
