The-Hundred, Birmingham Phoenix touch down in JULY 2020!
Edgbaston, Birmingham plays host to the Phoenix. The team is run by Andrew McDonald (head coach), Daniel Vettori (assistant coach), Jim Troughton and Alex Gidman. This is one of the most heavily staffed team in the competition, will the added backroom staff add value on the pitch, only time will tell!
England’s World Cup winning Chris Woakes is the face of the Phoenix but everyone would suggest that the team will be led by Kane Williamson. The New Zealander has led his Black Caps to the World Cup final on the last two times of asking, narrowly missing out on both occasions. Williamson as a captain has a knack of making things happen on the pitch, be that with a fielding or bowling change. He’s dependable with the bat allowing for the more aggressive players to push on around him. Williamson gets the best out of everyone one of his players, and in a new format such as The-Hundred that itself could be the deciding factor on match day.
The Local ICONs are made up of Moeen Ali (Worcestershire & England) and Pat Brown (England & Worcestershire). Ali has been in and around the England set u for the best part of a decade, his talents are with both bat and ball. A right arm off-spinner with the ability to tie down opposition batsmen and take vital wickets, with the bat his free scoring style seems to be slightly more hit and miss, blazing eye catching hundreds or ending up back in the hutch early. Pat Brown’s career in comparison has been rather shorter, selected to tour with England in their most recent tour of New Zealand, however on slow and unhelpful wickets he didn’t make the impression the selectors would have hoped. Brown is set to be England’s new death bowler and will be looking to replicate his slower balls and yorker’s throughout The-Hundred.
The-Hundred, Birmingham Phoenix could be the dark horses led by one of the best in the business in Williams and stacked full of talented all rounders! Will the Phoenix rise in 2020?
