Northern Superchargers Preview

One of the strong contenders of this trophy; Northern Superchargers are ready to start this new season with a win in their first game against Welsh Fires. Ben Stokes is leading this team and now he has a good experience of leading England’s men’s team against Pakistan.

The team’s opener Harry Brook has been phenomenal in the Vitality T20 blast this year and has scored 485 runs in 12 matches while playing for Yorkshire. To help him in the opening, T20 specialist Faf du Plessis is also looking in good touch this year and has played a few superb knocks in the PSL.

In the bowling department, Matty Potts along with Matthew Fisher will handle the bowling attack for the team. Matty Potts has taken 16 wickets in 13 matches for Durham in the Vitality Blast. Adil Rashid will handle the spin attack for this team and captain Ben Stokes will play a key role as the all-rounder in the team. By looking at the squad strength we can say that this team will surely be the team to defeat in this league. This format is new to all teams and players as it is completely different from other formats, so time will tell us how this team will execute their plans to adjust to this format.

Key players for Northern Superchargers: Harry Brook, Jordan Thompson, Matty Potts, Matthew Fisher.

Northern Superchargers Predicted Playing XI:

Faf du Plessis, Harry Brook,  Chriss Lynn, Adam Lyth, Ben Stokes(c), John Simpson(wk), Jordan Thompson, David Willey, Adil Rashid, Matty Potts, Matthew Fisher.

Welsh Fire Preview

Jonny Bairstow is all set to lead his new team Welsh fires in this new league and he will try to continue his good T20 form of the previous series against Pakistan in this league too while playing for this new franchise. Attacking opening batsman Tom Banton had a good T20 season this year. Also,  Leus du Plooy played a few superb knocks in the Vitality Blast. He has scored 395 runs in 12 innings at an average of 39.50 for Derbyshire.  Matt Critchley and James Neesham will play as an all-rounder in this squad.

Jake Ball and all-rounder Matt Critchley will be going to handle the bowling department of this team. Jake Ball had a superb T20 season this year and he has taken 18 wickets in just 9 matches while playing for Nottinghamshire in the Vitality Blast. The overall squad is looking strong but they need to solve their spin bowling issue which might help them to tackle opposition in this first game against Northern Superchargers on 24th July. 

Key players for Welsh Fires: Jonny Bairstow, Tom Banton, Matt Critchley, Jake Ball.

Welsh Fire Predicted Playing XI:

Jonny Bairstow(c, wk), Tom Banton, Ben Ducket, Leus du Plooy, Ollie Pope, Matt Critchley, James Neesham, Liam Plunkett, Quis Ahmed, Jake Ball, David Payne.

Venue Details

Headingley in Leeds will host this match. This ground is one of the prime grounds in England and has a capacity of 17000. The ground has conducted a few ODIs and just 1 T20I game so far.

Toss: To Bat

This ground has not conducted any game of this new format of the game previously but conducted just 1 T20I match. This ground is mainly used for domestic purposes like Vitality Blast and County Championship. The pitch favours bowlers, and it’s easy to defend the targets on this ground. At this location, whichever team wins the toss will want to bat first.

Both teams have built strong squads for this new format of cricket but Northern Superchargers have picked up strong bowling lineups compared to Welsh Fires. They also have good batting depth with them which can stretch down the inning till last overs. On the other hand, Welsh Fires also have a strong batting line up but their few players will be missing in the middle order and they will join the squad after a few weeks that might help NS to secure a win in this first match of the Hundred.
 

We predict that Northern Superchargers will defeat Welsh Fires.
