Northern Superchargers would be under pressure as they take on London Spirit in the 13th game of The Hundred, 2022. Northern Superchargers come into this contest with two losses, and they went down against Oval Invincibles in their last game. London Spirit has done well so far this season and they defeated Southern Brave in their last game.
London Spirit has won all the three games they have played. The side is playing like a well-oiled unit where their key players have shown good form, and this would make the camp confident. The Superchargers haven’t had a great record at home over the last two seasons and this would be worrying them. The 100-ball format throws in surprises and we expect to see a close contest in this game.
Back-to-back losses have added to the pressure on Faf du Plessis’ side. They went down against the Oval Invincibles in the last game by 3 wickets. The Superchargers skipper would be upset with his side’s bowling efforts in the last game. They threw away a game that was in their bag. Faf du Plessis would look for a better performance as they return to their home ground for this game.
Adam Lyth played an electrifying knock in the last game, but the side would be worried about du Plessis’ form. The skipper hasn’t scored in any of the games. Adam Hose, Michael-Kyle Pepper, and John Simpson must convert their starts in the middle overs of the game. They have good hitters of the ball to follow, and runs would be expected from David Wiese, Roelof van der Merwe, and Dwayne Bravo.
Ben Raine and Craig Miles must get early breakthroughs as they are up against a very strong batting line-up in this game. Dwayne Bravo and Wiese are experienced bowlers, and they would have to keep the scoring rate under check. The side would be worried about the form of Adil Rashid as he hasn’t looked at his best so far in this tournament.

Eoin Morgan’s side comes here with their confidence high. The side has won all three games so far and snatched a 9-run win against the defending champions Southern Brave in their last game. They have a strong bunch of players on the side and Morgan shall like to see them do well in this contest and hold their position at the top of the points table.
Zak Crawley has done well at the top and he would look to set up a big opening wicket stand in this game with Adam Rossington. Glenn Maxwell and Daniel Bell-Drummond batted superbly in the last game and the pair shall aim to continue with their good show in this game. Down the order, Morgan adds firepower to this batting line-up along with Kieron Pollard and Jordan Thompson.
The bowling attack held its nerves in the final overs of the last game, and they would expect a good spell from Maxwell and Nathan Ellis with the new ball. Liam Dawson and Thompson produced good spells in the last game, and this would make them confident. Mason Crane and Brad Wheal make it a well-balanced attack, and this would make the side confident.

There would be clear skies over Leeds on August 14. We are likely to see a flat wicket in this game where batsmen would be able to play their strokes freely. The ball would come to the bat nicely and bowlers have little margin for error. The side that bats first shall look at a score of 150 runs.
Headingley, Leeds has seen big scoring games in the past. The wicket is flat, and this allows batsmen to play their strokes. The fast outfield is another boon for the batters. There is early assistance for the fast bowlers on this surface. Spinners must vary their pace and length to do well at this venue.
This is a high-scoring venue and big scores have been chased here in the past. This format of the game makes it challenging for the sides to defend scores. Only once has a side defended a score in the last two seasons. Hence, we expect the side winning the toss to bowl first.
There would be pressure on the Northern Superchargers to do well at home after the two consecutive losses. The bowling attack looks weak at the moment with key bowlers unable to find their form. London Sprit has ticked all the boxes. Their batsmen are in good form and the bowlers have troubled the opponents. This would make them favorites to win this game.
