The Southern Brave and Oval Invincibles will square off in Game 14 of the Hundred Men’s 2022 tournament at London’s Kennington Oval. The team coached by Jason Roy is in second place in the point standings after winning two of their first three games. Following a spirited victory over the Northern Superchargers in their previous match, they will be feeling confident going into the upcoming match.
The Southern Brave, on the other hand, started the competition with a victory before suffering two straight losses. Despite having some match-winning players in their squad, the James Vince-led team has had trouble putting together a full performance with both bat and ball. Tymal Mills and George Garton are likely to be added for the upcoming match.
Pitch Report: OVI vs SOB
The London Kennington Oval pitch has generated a large number of high scores so far and has already produced two thrilling games. Given that the surface has remained level during the second innings as well, the captain who chooses to bat will attempt to reduce the score.

OVI: Jason Roy (c), Rilee Rossouw, Sam Curran, Hilton Cartwright, Jordan Cox (wk), Sunil Narine, Tom Curran, Jack Haynes, Reece Topley, Matt Milnes, Danny Briggs

Probable Highest potential performers:
Batter: Tim David
In the two innings he has played so far in this round of the Hundred Men’s event, Tim David has managed scores of 11 and 3. Once he gets his eye in, David’s tremendous ball-striking skills may significantly alter the score and make him a match-winning batsman. He will probably be moved up the lineup for the upcoming match in order to maximise his effectiveness.
Chris Jordan has been one of the positive limelights for the Southern Brave so far in this year’s edition and he has maintained a decent economy rate despite bowling the tough overs. He did go for a few in the previous game, however, he is a wicket-taking option and can nail the yorkers as well. Southern Brave will be looking up to him to step up with the ball and lead the fast bowling attack.
