Northern Superchargers are coming to play against London Spirit after witnessing a disappointing loss against Manchester Originals. The primary reason for their loss was the weak bowling as their too many loose ends and weak deliveries from the bowlers. Reece Topley picked up 3 wickets with Brydon Carse, Callum Parkinson, and Adil Rashid picking up 1 wicket each.
Matthew Short (37 off 18 balls) gave a positive start to the team with the bat but once he was back in the pavilion, no other batter was able to play a constructive innings and provide a winning momentum to the team.
Ben Stokes will be making a comeback to the team as he was rested for the previous match.
