It is the 21st game of The Hundred, 2022 where hosts Northern Superchargers would be up against the Manchester Originals. It will be a very important game for both teams in their bid to finish in the Top 3 on the points table. The Superchargers come into this game with a big win against the Birmingham Phoenix. Manchester Originals also defeated Southern Brave in their last game.
Northern Superchargers have lost the last three out of four games and the side has struggled for form. They have lost both their games at home this year and this would hurt their confidence. Manchester Originals come here with back-to-back wins and the side gas found its form. There are high stakes involved in this clash for both sides and it remains to be seen whom among them wins this contest.
Faf du Plessis’ side broke away from its three-match losing spree in the last game. They defeated Birmingham Phoenix by 32 runs to keep their hopes alive for a place in the next round. They face a formidable opponent in Manchester Originals and the former South African skipper shall like to see his side put up a good show at home having lost both their earlier games here.
Adam Lyth has looked in good form, but the side would be worried about the form of du Plessis who hasn’t done well. Adam Hose comes here after a good show, and he would look to add runs with Harry Brook and David Willey. The side would expect to see runs from John Simpson and David Weise and Dwayne Bravo down the order.
David Willey and Craig Miles must do well with the new ball as the Originals have their openers in good form. Ben Raine and Bravo are experienced bowlers, and the side would expect good spells from them. Adil Rashid did well in the last game, and this is good news for the team. They would also expect good bowling from Weise who was brilliant against Birmingham Phoenix

Back-to-back wins have put Jos Buttler’s side on track for a place in the Eliminator round. It was an excellent display of power hitting in their last game against Southern Brave which they won by 68 runs. They would look to continue with the same momentum and aim for a big win in this contest.
Phillip Salt and Jos Buttler hit form in the last game and the pair shall look to set up a big opening wicket stand in the game. Andre Russell comes here after an electrifying knock, and he will need to add runs with Wayne Madsen and Tristan Stubbs in the middle order. Laurie Evans, Paul Walter, and Tom Hartley are clean hitters, and they make this line-up formidable.
Their bowlers did well in the last game and the side would need a good start from Mitchell Stanley and Sean Abbott in this game. Tom Hartley and Paul Walter will look to trouble the Superchargers with their variety. Russell, Stubbs, and Matthew Parkinson make it a well-balanced attack.

The skies would be slightly overcast over leads on August 21. It is a flat track where batsmen can play their strokes. The ball comes to the bat nicely and bowlers have no room for error. The side that bats first here would hope to have 150 runs on the board to feel confident in the game.
Headingley, Leeds is a good wicket to bat on with the bounce on the surface being true. Though the ground has decent size boundaries it is still an easy one to score runs in given the nature of the wicket. Spinners find a good bargain from this surface as the game progresses.
Two games have been played here and, on both occasions, the side chasing the score has had an advantage. This format of the game makes it tough for the sides to put runs on the board and defend it. Thus, we are likely to see the side winning the toss bowl first at this venue
Northern Superchargers would be under pressure in this home game. They have not won a game here this season and their batsmen have been in poor form. The side would need runs on the board to challenge the Manchester Originals. The Originals have struck form and the side has its batsmen looking in good shape. This would make them favorites to win this contest.
