Lord’s-based team London Spirit have a team rich in English talent for The Hundred. Here’s a preview of the team playing their home matches at The Home of Cricket itself.
The Hundred: London Spirit men’s team preview
London Spirit’s chances of winning The Hundred may boil down to who England select for their Test series against India, which starts partway through the new white-ball tournament. If Zak Crawley, Dan Lawrence and Mark Wood are, as expected, called upon by Chris Silverwood, London Spirit’s team will look significantly depleted. However, in Mohammad Amir, Mohammad Nabi, and England white-ball captain Eoin Morgan, they still have plenty of world-class talent in their ranks. With Morgan as captain, they also have one of the best leaders and tacticians in the world of cricket, something that might give them the edge in tight matches.

Captaincy options from London Spirit for The Hundred men’s fantasy draft
Dan Lawrence and Zak Crawley are both very talented white-ball players, but with both likely to be unavailable for half the tournament due to international duty, Eoin Morgan is the best option as your fantasy captain from London Spirit. With his skills with both bat and ball, and his years of experience in franchise cricket, Mohammad Nabi would be another great choice.
