This article will talk about the probable XIs for both teams and continue with the Dream11 predictions and the winning fantasy team for Match 10 of “The Hundred” between London Spirit and London Spirit that is scheduled to take place on the 29th of July 2021.
The table-toppers Trent Rockets after 2 games will take on the 6th placed London Spirit in their respective 3rd game at the Iconic Lord’s Cricket Ground on Thursday.
Trent Rockets won a thrilling contest against the Northern Superchargers in a thrilling run-chase on Monday. Alex Hales played a responsible knock of unbeaten 40 to take the Rockets to a 2-wicket win with 6 balls to spare. Rashid Khan played a crucial knock of 12-ball 25 adding to his 3-31 that he took earlier in the match. Marchant De Lange had another good time with the ball finishing with 3/22 while Matthew Carter bowled an economical spell of 2/17 in balls to restrict the Superchargers to 132.
On the other hand, the London Spirit’s 2nd game was washed out due to rain Sunday. They had lost their 1st game of The Hundred to Birmingham Phoenix by 3 wickets. The huge positive for them out of the game is Zak Crawley’s form, he made 64 off 40 in the team’s total of 144.
Venue: Lord’s, London
Pitch and Weather: In the recently concluded ODI match between Pakistan and England played here, the run-scoring was difficult. Like every typical English, it will offer something to the pacers initially, and it had something was the spinners as well. The weather forecast is good for the match-day, unlike the previous game. It is expected to be cloudy without any rain interruptions. Temperatures are expected to be around 19-20C during the course of the game.
Date and Time: July 29, 2021, 6.30 PM Local, 11.00 PM IST
Probable Playing XIs
The undefeated Trent Rockets will most likely field the same team that won against the Superchargers. But the only concern is that apart from Alex Hales, none of the batsmen from the top-order scored any significant runs. However, they will be happy with the way they bowled throughout the game and restricting the opposition to just 132.
London Spirit’s match on Sunday was marred by rains and they will hope for a much better batting performance after failing to defend 144 against the Pheonix despite Zak Crawley’s efforts with the bat.

Batsmen: Alex Hales and Dawid Malan can be picked as the batsman from the Trent Rockets. Hales played a match-winning knock in the last game and has been in tremendous form throughout the summer. Eoin Morgan, the skipper of London Spirit can be selected along with their in-form batsman Zak Crawley.
Wicket-Keeper: Josh Inglis can be selected as the lone wicket-keeper of the team. He is an exciting young top-order batsman representing the London Spirit.

Bowlers: Marchant De Lange has picked 8 wickets in the 2 games so far and is an automatic pick in the fantasy team. Rashid Khan is another player who is a certainty in any of the fantasy teams.

Fantasy Team: Josh Inglis, Dawid Malan, Alex Hales (C), Zak Crawley, Eoin Morgan, Ravi Bopara, D’arcy Short, Rashid Khan, Mohammad Amir, Marchant De Lange, Matthew Carter
Captain: Alex Hales
Alex Hales is one of the best batters in this format. He is still the right candidate as the captain of the side after his last match exploits.
Vice-Captain: Rashid Khan
The wily leg-spinner put on an all-round effort in the last game picking 3 wickets with the ball and scoring 25 important runs. He is the right choice to be the vice-captain of the side.
