OVI vs LNS Match Prediction & Betting Tips, The Hundred 2022
Oval Invincibles take on London Spirit in Match 2 of the 2022 Men’s Hundred on Thursday evening at the Kia Oval, South Longon. The Invincibles finished in fourth place, one point outside the play-off positions last season. London Spirit won only one of eight games and finished bottom of the group stage. Read on as we preview this match. The game gets underway at 18:30 local time.
Oval Invincibles stumbled at the wrong point last season and fell out of the top three spots after the final group game. They will have a strong team spirit and will be cheered on by passionate supporters in this match.
London Spirit will struggle to perform worse than they did during the 2021 Men’s Hundred. Trevor Bayliss will take the pressure off the players and we expect them to give the hosts a good game in this clash.

Oval Invincibles Team News & Playing 11
OVI Team News
The hosts will be without powerful top order batter Rilee Rossouw in The Hundred 2022, who finished the T20 Blast as the second highest run scorer this year. He is currently on international duty with South Africa and will give the team a boost when he returns. As with last year, the Invincibles have a strong Surrey contingent in their side.
OVI Key Players
- Jason Roy – the England international opener has been in poor form for his country and will see this tournament as his chance to cement his place in the team with the T20 World Cup on the horizon.
- Mohammad Hasnain – the 22 year old pace bowler from Pakistan announced himself on the BBL with a triple wicket maiden at the start of this year. He will excite the crowds and target the stumps in this game.
- Reece Topley – the England international has had his most impressive summer to date. He will want to keep up his strong white ball form ahead of the T20 World Cup in two months.
OVI Team Form
Oval Invincibles lost their final game of the 2021 season to Southern Brave who leapfrogged them in the table and went on to win the tournament.

London Spirit Team News & Playing 11
LNS Team News
The Lord’s based team will be coached by former England Head Coach Trevor Bayliss who is known as a white ball specialist. They will largely have a full squad to choose from with the exception of England pace bowler Mark Wood who is working his way back to fitness.
LNS Key Players
- Glenn Maxwell- the batting all-rounder has never quite cracked Test cricket but has lit-up T20 leagues and international games across the globe. He will excite the crowds with plenty of boundaries in this competition.
- Ben McDermott- the 27 year old keeper-batter impressed for Hampshire Hawks in the T20 Blast earlier this summer. He hit five half-centuries including 62 in the win in the Final.
- Jordan Thompson- the bowling all-rounder has gone under the radar of the international selectors but is a regular wicket-taker in global T20 tournaments. He picked up 17 dismissals in this year’s T20 Blast.
LNS Team Form
London Spirit were unable to get going during the 2021 tournament but will look at this as a new season with a fresh and clean slate.
London Spirit Predicted Playing 11
Ben McDermott (wk), Zak Crawley, Glenn Maxwell, Eoin Morgan (c), Dan Lawrence, Liam Dawson, Kieron Pollard, Brad Wheal, Toby Roland-Jones, Jordan Thompson, Mason Crane
