Northern Superchargers Preview

Northern Superchargers had to face disappointment in the first season of the Hundred. They will not be qualifying for the knockout matches. They have missed the qualification by a close margin and this will dwindle the morale of the players. Superchargers have an opportunity to test their bench strength in this match against the Birmingham Phoenix as it will help in team building for the next season. Tom Kohler-Cadmore and Chris Lynn will open the innings for the Superchargers. Both the batsmen haven’t been in great form, they have managed to give a few headstarts in the powerplay’s of few matches but there has been a lack of consistency throughout the season. David Willey, Dane Vilas, and Jordan Thompson form the middle order batting. Dane Vilas and Jordan Thompson have anchored the innings and provided batting stability. The absence of Faf Du Plessis has hurt the strength of this batting unit. John Simpson has been in excellent batting form and has been a dependable finisher.

This team has one of the best spin bowling attacks in the form of Mujeeb Ur Rahman and Adil Rashid. Both the bowlers have been in good bowling form and have regularly picked up wickets at crucial stages of the game. Ben Raine and Matty Potts have impressed with their bowling skills this season. They will surely be bowlers to watch out for in this match.
