The Northern Superchargers will host Manchester Originals at Headingley, Leeds. The 26th game of The Hundred is set to play on August 12th from 7 PM local time. Both teams are struggling with the new format of the game and are currently placed in the bottom half of the points table. Superchargers have 6 points in 6 matches while Originals have 5 in 6 matches. Northern Superchargers lost their last game of the tournament against Southern Brave. Batting first, Superchargers set a target of 129 runs for the loss of 6 wickets. Skipper David Willey scored 24 off 18 deliveries followed by a calculated knock from Dane Vilas. Vilas scored 35 off 24 balls and helped Superchargers’ scorecard running. Southern Brave’s Quinton de Kock single-handedly turned the result in favour of his team. De Kock scored an unbeaten 72 off 45 deliveries with help of 9 fours and a six. Adil Rashid and Adam Lyth took 2 wickets each for the Superchargers.

Manchester Originals lost to London Spirit at home in their last game. London Spirit scored 142 runs for the loss of 6 wickets in the first innings. Tom Hartley took 3 wickets for the Originals. Chasing 143, Originals were reduced to 21 for the loss of 3 wickets. But their middle-order added 110 runs to the score to bring Originals close to the target. WIth 9 runs needed in 10 balls, Originals lost 4 wickets for 2 runs and hence lost the game. This is a must-win game for both teams, with only two games remaining. Superchargers suffered a blow when two of their players returned with positive tests for Covid-19. Despite the positive results, the ECB announced that the match between Superchargers and Originals will go ahead as planned.

Northern Superchargers Preview

The names of the two players who tested positive haven’t been announced yet. Therefore it is difficult to determine who will be part of the playing 11. Opener Adam Lyth has scored 40 runs so far in this season for Superchargers. On the other hand, Chris Lynn has 101 runs in 5 innings but his strike rate is barely above 100 (106.31). The lack of start from the openers has put pressure on the top and middle-order.

HC Brook’s performance has provided a relief to the Superchargers camp. Brook has 189 runs in 5 innings at a strike rate of 153.65. He is currently at the second position in the tournament’s leading run-scorer table. Skipper David Willey has found his form in the last two games. In Superchargers’ last victory, Willey scored a quickfire of 81 runs in 45 deliveries with 3 fours and 6 sixes. He then took 2 wickets for 9 runs in 15 deliveries to help Superchargers win by 63 runs. Dane Vilas, John Simpson and Ben Raine will bolster the middle-order. Superchargers’ Adil Rashid is on fire with his leg-spin. He has 10 wickets in 5 innings at an average of 11.50 and has a wicket every 10 balls. But he is not getting enough support from the other end. Mujeeb Ur Rahman who is next in the line has only 5 wickets. 

Key Players: David Willey, Adil Rashid, HC Brook

Northern Superchargers Predicted Playing XI:

Adam Lyth, Chris Lynn, Harry Brook, David Willey (c), Dane Vilas, John Simpson (wk), Ben Raine, Brydon Carse, Matty Potts, Adil Rashid, Mujeeb Ur Rahman

Manchester Originals Preview

Like Superchargers, Originals are also facing problems with their top-order. It can be seen from the fact that Colin Munro is the only Originals player to score more than 100 runs in 6 matches they played so far. Both openers Joe Clark and Philip Salt have very high strike rates (139 plus) but they have scored only 89 runs each for the Originals. In Originals last victory the openers put a 94 runs stand for the first wicket. They chased the target of 151 runs set by Welsh Fire with 7 wickets and 5 balls to spare. The top-order performance will be the key for Originals against the hosts who have already depleted with positive Covid cases.

Colin Ackerman, Tom Lammonby and skipper Carlos Brathwaite will take the middle-order role. Originals have failed to utilize their skipper up in the batting order. Brathwaite has 72 runs in 4 innings at a strike rate of 141.17. The bowling unit of Originals has put on a very strong show. They bowled out the current table-toppers Birmingham Phoenix on 87 in 84 deliveries after taking 8 wickets in the inaugural game of The Hundred. Tom Hartley and Matthew Parkinson have 7 wickets each at an average of 12. Lockie Ferguson will make it to the final eleven  for the Originals

Key Players: Colin Munro, Tom Hartley, Matthew Parkinson.

Manchester Originals Predicted Playing XI:

Philip Salt (wk), Joe Clarke, Colin Munro, Colin Ackermann, Tom Lammonby, Carlos Brathwaite (c), Calvin Harrison, Tom Hartley, Lockie Ferguson, Fred Klaassen, Matthew Parkinson

Venue Details

The venue for this match is Headingley, Leeds. It has a capacity of 17,000 spectators. Kennington Oval is home to Yorkshire and has been an international cricket venue since 1890. So far 78 Tests, 46 ODIs, and 1 T20I have been played here.

Toss: To Bowl

So far two Hundred matches have been played at this venue. The team batting first and second have won one each. But in ODIs team batting second has more favourable outcomes.  Therefore, the team winning the toss should bowl first.

This is a must-win game for both teams. But the hosts will find it difficult after two of their players tested positive. The players’ mentality will play a crucial role in their fight against the Originals tomorrow. The Originals bowling lineup has the potential to stop the top-order of the Superchargers. They are looked like potential winners.

We predict that the Manchester Originals will defeat Northern Superchargers.
