The Oval Invincibles will be up against The Manchester Originals in the first match of The Hundred in London at Kennington Oval on Thursday, 22 July 2021. The Hundred is the English Cricket Board’s latest game format which will have 100 balls every inning.
The Oval Invincibles and The Manchester Originals have a strong lineup, and a high-scoring match is expected. Both teams have a good number of batters and bowlers in their ranks and they will be looking forward to starting the tournament
with a win here.
Speaking of the Invincibles, at present, Jason Roy is on flames. In the third T20 International against Pakistan, he scored a magnificent 64 runs. If Roy kicks into gear, he has the ability to turn the game around on his own. They also have Sam Curran, who is currently one of the young and talented all-rounders in global cricket.
On the other hand, The Originals have Jos Buttler, who is a T20 star around the globe. He bats aggressively and can destroy any bowling attack in his true form. Lockie Ferguson will be the key bowler and a great wicket-taker for them. In the death overs, he has a knack for picking wickets in bunches.
Both teams will all be aiming to make startling first impressions, and that could lead to some seriously impressive results as teams adapt to the new setup.

OVI vs MNR: Predicted Playing XI
The Oval Invincibles
Jason Roy, Will Jacks, Laurie Evans, Colin Ingram, Sam Billings (wk), Jordan Clark, Sam Curran, Sunil Narine, Sandeep Lamichhane, Saqib Mahmood, Reece Topley.
The Manchester Originals
Jos Butler, Phil Salt, Joe Clarke, Colin Munro, Carlos Brathwaite, Tom Lammonby, Sam Hain, Steven Finn, Richard Gleeson, Lockie Ferguson, Matt Parkinson.
The wicket at the Oval is a paradise for the batters. Batters can easily put a huge score on the scoreboard. However, we can expect the spinners to play a crucial role as the game progresses.
The team that wins the toss would most likely choose to bat first.
