BAN vs AUS | 2nd T20I: Tigers look to carry momentum as Aussie search for survival skills in Dhaka
3 Aug 2021
The Birmingham Phoenix, having won two and lost two out of their four games are sitting pretty on the fourth position in the points table. While their both wins have come in home games, their losses were recorded away. Therefore they would be at an advantage when they welcome Oval Invincibles at Edgbaston on Wednesday, August 04.
However, Oval is also coming on the back of a great win against Wesh Fire at home. Out of their three games, they have lost just once and that was an away game. Their other away game in the London Derby was washed out.
Moeen Ali’s men would hence fancy to seize up Sam Billing’s side and win this contest to move ahead in the table. But will they be able to do it? Only time will tell.
Match Number- 18

The pitch at Esdgabastobn has proved to be a true wicket with a lot of runs on offer and if bowled wisely, wickets are up for grab as well. Hence, a nice game is at hand in Birmingham if the weather permits.
According to BBC Weather, Edgbaston is likely to have sunny intervals and light winds, perfect weather for cricket. The temperatures would also remain in the lower twenties or below twenty range, thus providing a good atmosphere for the crowds to enjoy the game.
