Manchester Originals and Trent Rockets face off in the 11th match of the ongoing Hundred in Old Trafford, Manchester, on August 13, Saturday. Both teams have played two games each, and the Originals, led by Jos Buttler, are yet to register a win. Rockets, on the other hand, have won both their games and stand third on the table.

Originals would be raring to get a win on board after they lost comprehensively by 52 runs against league-leaders London Spirit, chasing 161. Rockets, led by Lewis Gregory, won their second game against Northern Superchargers, chasing 153 with seven wickets in hand and six balls to spare, and would look to maintain their unbeaten run going into Saturday’s game.

MNR vs TRT Pitch Report

Old Trafford looks ideal for batting with a flat wicket, and a score of more than 140 should be easily achievable. As was seen in the previous match, over 320 runs were scored in 200 balls without offering much for the bowlers. It would be ideal for a team to win the toss and elect to bat first and post a big total.
