Match Previews

ODI

Windies v Bangladesh Dublin 11:00 AM (10:00 AM GMT)

After a dominating performance against Ireland, Windies will now clash against Bangladesh in Dublin.

Windies' openers Shai Hope and John Campbell broke the record for the highest opening partnership in ODIs, moving past the previous best opening partnership of 304 set by Pakistan's Imam-ul-Haq and Fakhar Zaman. Both the openers scored in excess of 170 and helped Windies post a mammoth 381-run total on the board.

Ashley Nurse then spun a web, with contributions from Shannon Gabriel and Kemar Roach as Ireland were bundled out for just 185 and Windies won by a huge margin of 196 runs.

Windies are without some of their their big guns but their dominance shows that they still have a lot of talent in their ranks.

Bangladesh are coming into this match on the back of a 0-3 drubbing at the hands of New Zealand. Out of the last three matches that the team has played at this venue, they have lost two, while Windies have won all of their last three ODIs here.

The Tigers have a lot of potential with players like Tamim Iqbal, Mushfiqur Rahim and Mahmudullah in their batting line up. Sabbir Rahman was also impressive in the recently concluded ODI series against New Zealand. Among the bowlers, Mashrafe Mortaza, Mustafizur Rahim and Rubel Hussain would be their impact players.

IPL         

Mumbai Indians v Chennai Super Kings, Qualifier 1 3:00 PM 2:00 PM GMT

If there is one team that Chennai Super Kings would not have wanted to face, it is Mumbai Indians and that is exactly what they will have to to encounter in the Qualifier 1.

The joint-most successful teams of the IPL, both having won three titles each, will take on each other at Chennai's home ground at the MA Chidambaram Stadium. After a loss to Kings XI Punjab in their last league match, CSK have slid down to the second spot with nine wins and five losses from 14 matches.

Mumbai Indians climbed to the top spot after a dominating win over Kolkata Knight Riders. They end the league stage with nine wins and five losses from 14 matches but have a slightly better run rate than Chennai.

If there is one team which has had the measure of Chennai Super Kings over the years, it is Mumbai Indians. In the last five matches between the two teams, Mumbai have come out victorious four times and would be the favourites going into this match.

Chennai's bowling, which always had a few chinks, was exposed by Punjab's batsmen in their last league match. Especially, KL Rahul came down hard on the spinners and CSK did not seem to have a response.

Likewise, several of CSK's batters such as Shane Watson, Suresh Raina and Kedar Jadhav have been on and off, which gives Mumbai the edge going into Qualifier 1.

Royal London One Day Cup

Essex v Gloucestershire (Chelmsford)

Gloucestershire are at the fourth spot in the south group points table with four wins and three losses. With eight points, the team still has a chance of making it to the next round.

Each of Somerset, Gloucestershire and Sussex are with eight points and only one out of the three is expected to qualify to the next round.

Essex, on the other hand, are at the second last spot in the leadersboard and would step on the field to salvage their pride. The team has won only two and lost five out of their seven matches and has been able to accumulate only four points.

Varun Chopra was the highest run-scorer for the team last season and has already notched up two centuries in just the four matches that has played till now. After missing out a few games due to quad injury, he is back and will open the batting for the team.

 

Tom Westley is the current highest run-scorer for Essex with 353 runs from seven matches. Peter Siddle had a good outing for the team but in his absence, the team is struggling for bowling options, so much so so that Ravi Bopara is their second-highest wicket-taker after Matt Coles.

Chris Dent, Gareth Roderick and Jack Taylor have all scored in excess of 250 runs for Gloucestershire and would be expected to continue their good form. Benny Howell is the team's striker-in-chief with the ball.

Kent v Middlesex (Canterbury)

There is actually not much for both teams to get out of this match. Kent are already out of the race with only two wins and four losses from seven matches.

Middlesex, on the other hand, have won five and lost two out of their seven games and have 10 points. The team is at the second spot and even if it loses this game, Middlesex are likely to make it to the quarter finals due to their good run rate. They will, though, have to combat wholesale changes with the departure of international stars Eoin Morgan, Paul Stirling, Dawid Malan and Tim Murtagh.

Nick Gubbins has been the key batsman for the team. Although he missed his century by just two runs the other day, he has four half-centuries and has scored 370 runs from just six matches. Stephen Sean Eskinazi has also breached the 300 run-mark. Nathan Sowter has taken his game to another level this season with 22 wickets from seven matches. Toby Roland-Jones and Tom Helm have also been among the wickets for middlesex.

Zak Crawley and Matt Milnes have done their job perfectly well for Kent with bat and ball respectively but have not received enough support from their teammates.

Sussex v Glamorgan (The 1st Central County Ground)

Sussex are caught up in a middle muddle with Somerset and Gloucestershire. All the three teams have four wins and three losses from seven matches and are with eight points.

While Middlesex are almost assured of making it to the quarter finals, only one out of these three teams is expected to move to the next round. If Sussex can register a thumping win over Glamorgan, they will do their qualification chances no harm.

Glamorgan are at the sixth spot in the south group points table with two wins and four losses from seven matches. The team has five points and does not have a chance to qualify even if it comes out victorious from this match.

Luke Wright and David Wiese are the highest run-scorers for Sussex, both having scored more than 300 runs. Incidentally, both batsmen also have one century each against their name. Pakistan's Mir Hamza has picked up 16 wickets from seven matches and is on a roll. Danny Briggs has assisted him well with nine wickets from seven matches.

David Lloyd, Chris Cooke and Billy Root are the top run-scorers for Glamorgan. While both Cooke and Root have scored one century each, David Lloyd has notched up two centuries. Marchant de Lange is the highest wicket-taker for Glamorgan with 13 wickets from seven matches.

Somerset v Surrey – (Taunton)

Surrey have had a disappointing season and have been able to win just one out of their seven matches. The team has lost six games and has just two points with a net run rate of -1.065. Surrey would like to to bow out of the competition while taking some positives and would be desperate to win.

Somerset are at third spot with four wins and three losses from seven matches. If they win this match, they have a good chance of qualifying, given their net run-rate. However, Somerset's fate would also depend on the matches of Gloucestershire and Sussex and the team would not want either of these sides to win by a huge margin.

Pakistani opener Azhar Ali is the highest run-scorer for Somerset and has amassed more than 300 runs from seven matches. Middle-order batsmen Peter Trego and James Hildreth have also had good outings. Craig Overton is the highest wicket-taker for Somerset with 14 wickets from seven matches. Josh Davey follows second with nine wickets from seven matches.

Ben Foakes is the only batsman for Surrey to have created some sort of an impact. He has 282 runs from six matches and has managed three half-centuries. ut is away on England duty. Both veterans in their own right, Morne Morkel and Gareth Batty are the highest wicket-takers for Surrey.
