BIRMINGHAM PHOENIX TO WIN TH MATCH
Edgbaston Stadium, Birmingham, England
With permanent seating for around 25,000 spectators, Edgbaston is the fourth largest cricket ground in the UK It is home to Warwickshire County Cricket Club and its T20 team Birmingham Bears. The historic Edgbaston has hosted more T20 Finals than any other cricket stadium in the world. After Lord’s cricket ground, Edgbaston became only the first England ground to host a major one-day international tournament final which was ICC Champions Trophy Final in 2013.
Pitch & Condition
Edgbaston’s course is really popular. The ball hits the racket well and the batters love to hit the ball. Bowlers must obey their lines and lengths when bowling on this surface
In over 90% of the contests, teams have chosen to bowl first, although teams batting first have won the past five matches. As a result, we anticipate the captains following the same pattern in this match.
Point Table Analysis
The Birmingham Phoenix are playing their first home game of 2022 as they look to overtake the defending champion Southern Warriors. It wasn’t a promising start for Phoenix, as they lost their first game of the season to the Trent Rockets. The Southern Warriors lived up to their reputation with a season opener win over the Welsh Flames.
Last game, the Southern Warriors played well with the ball and racket, which should boost their confidence. They have beaten the Suns in their past two games. The Birmingham Phoenix are more aware of the situation and we could have a close game in this game.

Dream 11 Prediction
The game will undoubtedly remind players and fans of last summer’s final at Lorde. We’ll have to wait and see if the Birmingham Phoenix can turn their disappointment into a positive, or if the Warriors of the South feel like they’ve taken a blow from them. We predict a high-scoring match in which Southern Brave will win.
