Manchester Originals made a strong comeback in the second game after losing the first one against Oval Invincibles. With 3 points from 3 matches, they are at 3rd place in the points table and will try to beat Welsh Fires to be in the top 2. Although they bowled well in the first match, to restrict Oval Invincible on 145 runs with help of Fred Klassen’s 3 wickets for 23 runs. Tom Hartley’s 2 wickets for 24 runs, they failed to chase down the target as their middle order collapsed terribly in front of Oval’s bowling.

In the next match against Birmingham Phoenix, they made a solid comeback to an all-out opponent just on 87 runs. Matt Parkinson dismissed top-notch t20 specialists of the opposite squad by bowling a brilliant spell of 4 wickets for just 9 runs.
