Men’s Hundred 2023: Manchester Originals Set to Face Birmingham Phoenix in 10th Match
The upcoming clash in the Men’s Hundred 2023 series is poised to unfold at Emirates Old Trafford in Manchester on Monday, featuring a showdown between Manchester Originals and Birmingham Phoenix.
Manchester Originals have yet to secure a victory in the tournament. After a loss against Welsh Fire in their opener, their subsequent match against London Spirit was abandoned due to inclement weather.
In a match against London Spirit, Manchester Originals, powered by Jos Buttler’s 62 off 36 balls, reached 138/5 in 80 balls before rain halted proceedings. No further play was possible, leading to both teams sharing a point.
Birmingham Phoenix’s fortunes in the Men’s Hundred 2023 have been plagued by bad luck. Their opening game against Northern Superchargers was thwarted by rain, and a similar fate befell their next game against Trent Rockets at Edgbaston.
