London Spirit v Birmingham Phoenix
Tuesday 30 August, 18:30
TV: Live on Sky Sports
Kieron Pollard's stint is over with the big man off to the CPL. Josh Inglis is his replacement in terms of overseas players but Ravi Bopara is also getting a game.
Possible XI: Rossington, Inglis, McDermott, Bell-Drummond, Lawrence, Morgan, Bopara, Thompson, Dawson, Ellis, Wood, Crane
Liam Livingstone has an ankle injury and that will keep him out of the play-off if Phoenix were to make it. Phoenix have had terrible luck with injuries and this is one they may not get over.
Possible XI: Smeed, Hammond, Moeen, Benjamin, Wade, D'Oliviera, Howell, Dwarshius, Helm, Brookes, Richardson
Score of 150, 166 and 122 suggest a decent track. However, with Phoenix rolled for 75 versus Originals last time and them chronically short on batting power, it could be unders play if they were to bat first. Bet the line here.
How to play
Spirit are 1.674/6 and Phoenix 2.47. Both tams lost their last match as pressure builds. Spirit need a big win to usurp Rockets at the top of the table.
Phoenix have to win - and by a large margin - to make the top three. The odds are probably a little unfair on Phoenix because they still have nous.
We'd prefer them to chase, though so we can trade. Bet the odds here.
Moeen Ali has been boosted to 3/1 for top Phoenix bat. Ben McDermott gets a 16/5 boost for Spirit. Jordan Thompson catches the eye at 20s. Bet the Sportsbook odds here.
