The Hundred 2022, Match 3: Manchester Originals v Northern Superchargers:

Team News:

Manchester Originals: 

Jos Buttler will feature for the entire tournament and we can expect a cracker of an inning today from him. Ollie Robinson is on international duty and he will miss out for Manchester Originals. Paul Walter will also feature for the Originals. Richard Gleeson is unsure of his participation due to injuries. Andre Russell cannot play matches continuously unless deemed fit.

Players to watch out for:

1) Jos Buttler:

Jos Buttler, the English white-ball skipper, has been the most dangerous batter in white-ball cricket of late. He might utilize the tournament to practice for the 20-20 World Cup 2022. If he performs well here, he might end up performing well in the upcoming 20-20 World Cup 2022 as well.

2) Tom Hartley:

Tom Hartley, the young slow left-arm orthodox bowler can make his debut for the Originals this year. He can be a threat to the opposition. Young and fierce, the 23-year-old can get some crucial scalps in the middle overs.

3) Sean Abbott:

Sean Abbott can give crucial runs when needed and back it up with brilliant spells. The Australian allrounder can come in handy in pressure situations. With experience in hand, he can deliver it for Manchester Originals when they have fewer runs on board.

Probable Playing XI: Jos Buttler, Phil Salt, Wayne Madsen, Ashton Turner, Laurie Evans, Paul Walter, Andre Russell, Sean Abbott, Tom Hartley, Matt Parkinson, Richard Gleeson.

Northern Superchargers:

Northern Superchargers will miss the services of Ben Stokes this year. Faf du Plessis will lead the side this time around. Wahab Riaz and Dwayne Bravo will join the South African to add experience to the side. Harry Brook and Adil Rashid will be vital for the team's success over the course of the tournament.

Players to watch out for:

1) Faf du Plessis:

Faf du Plessis will lead the side this year. His wicket will be crucial and he has to stay longer in order to put on a strong score. The South African played excellently for the Chennai team last year and the Bangalore team this year in the Indian T20 League. The 38-year-old batter will look to utilize the opportunity to hold the ground and win it for his team.

2) Adam Lyth:

This can come as a surprise but the left-handed batter can go all out against opposition. All he needs is proper backing. The 34-year-old batter can roll his arms over at times too. His off-break bowling can come in handy at times.

3) Adil Rashid: 

Adil Rashid was brilliant in the first T20I against South Africa. After having a great outing against South Africa, the bowler will give his services to Superchargers. The English bowler will have to deliver it for the team and is definitely a player to watch out for.

Probable Playing XI: Adam Lyth, Faf du Plessis, Harry Brook, Adam Hose, David Willey, David Wiese, John Simpson, Adil Rashid, Matthew Potts, Wahab Riaz, Callum Parkinson

Pitch and Weather:

Old Trafford stadium favours spinners. The average score at this venue in The Hundred is 92. And the average 1st innings score is 109. Teams winning the toss must bowl first and the spinners will play a crucial role here.
