LNS vs WEF Match Prediction & Betting Tips, The Hundred 2022
London Spirit and Welsh Fire go head to head in Match 24 of the 2022 Men’s Hundred on Wednesday evening at Lord’s. London Spirit won their first four games but lost heavily to Southern Brave on Monday night. Welsh Fire have played five and lost five so far. Read on as we preview this fixture. The game gets underway at 19:00 local time in North London.
Although London Spirit had gained many admirers for their winning run, you learn the most about a team when they are trying to bounce back from a defeat. This game against Welsh Fire should be ideal to get back to winning ways.
Welsh Fire have struggled from before the start of the tournament when Jonny Bairstow withdrew from the squad. A win in this game would be one of the biggest shocks of the season.

LNS vs WEF Match Toss Prediction
Both Welsh Fire and London Spirit are keen to bat first in this format. We expect that Eoin Morgan and Josh Cobb will both decide to have a bat first if they win the toss.
LNS vs WEF Pitch Report
The famous Lord’s slope causes problems for the batters in The Hundred in the same way that it does in Test Matches. Overall, we expect a pitch which marginally favours the bowlers.
Clear skies with the sun setting during this game. The temperature will be at 26 degrees in the early stages before dropping to 20 by the end.

LNS Team News
There were two changes for London Spirit ahead of their top of the table clash with Trent Rockets on Saturday. Ben McDermott and Chris Wood came in with big-hitting all-rounder Glenn Maxwell now back in Australia preparing for the Zimbabwe tour and Brad Wheal left out.
LNS Key Players
- Ben McDermott – The 27 year old Australian has had to be patient to get his first appearance for London Spirit. However, he immediately hit the highest score for the team and has the respect of his team-mates.
- Eoin Morgan – The former England white-ball captain has a top score of 47 in the 2022 Men’s Hundred. His leadership continues to be impressive and he has brought the best out of many of his players.
- Jordan Thompson – The bowling all-rounder went wicketless against Trent Rockets but so far in the tournament no player has taken more wickets than him.
LNS Team Form
London Spirit were targeting their fifth straight win in this year’s tournament but must start again after the defeat to Trent Rockets on Saturday.

With runs the major sticking point for Welsh Fire during the entirety of the 2022 Men’s Hundred, there were two changes with Tom Banton and Sam Hain being left out in favour of Jacob Bethell and Leus du Plooy. Captain Josh Cobb also moved up the order to bat at number three.
WEF Key Players

- Jake Ball – The tall fast bowler conceded 18 runs from 17 balls on Monday night. He has six wickets for the tournament including figures of 4-29 in the defeat to Manchester Originals.

Who will win London Spirit vs Welsh Fire Match?
So much of short format cricket is about momentum and confidence. Welsh Fire will be hoping that London Spirit are not as all-conquering after losing to Trent Rockets and that will mean a much closer game than would otherwise have been expected.

LNS vs WEF Top Team Batsmen
Ben McDermott, Daniel Bell-Drummond and Adam Rossington are our batting picks for London Spirit. Rossington is a strong wicket-keeper but an even better attacking batter at the top of the order.

We recommend Joe Clarke, Ben Duckett and Josh Cobb to be the top batters for Welsh Fire. Duckett hit 40 in the first game of the season and has the ability to be performing at a higher level than we have seen so far.

London Spirit vs Welsh Fire Prediction
The bookmakers are predicting a heavy win for London Spirit and we find it very hard to disagree with their assessment. Trent Rockets are the only side above Spirit in the table and it is no disgrace to lose to them in their current form. In the other corner, Welsh Fire have been poor since the first game and do not have the batting strength to turn their season around. We are predicting another win for London Spirit.
London Spirit are favorites to beat Welsh Fire at the odds of 1.44
