Probable best batter of the match

Jonny Bairstow:

Welsh Fire skipper Jonny Bairstow will be looking to have a good outing with the bat in the tournament opener. The right-handed batter was in good touch during the recently-concluded T20I series against South Africa and will want to perform well against the defending champions as well.

Probable best bowler of the match

Chris Jordan:

England’s premier pacer in shortest international version of the game, Chris Jordan had a couple of good outings against India recently and he will want to bring his current form in the Hundred competition as well. Jordan can nail the yorkers in the death overs and it can come in handy for his side Southern Brave.
