In the 15th match of The Hundred Men's 2023 season, the Northern Superchargers will take on the Oval Invincibles at the historic Headingley Stadium, Leeds. This match will be the fourth match for each of these teams in this edition of The Hundred out of their eight-match quota. The Northern Superchargers team currently sits at the top of the points table with three points out of two matches.
The Oval Invincibles also have the same points in the same matches, but they are behind NRR and hence in the fourth position. Northern Superchargers' first match against Birmingham Phoenix was completely washed out due to rain, whereas Oval Invincibles played a tied match against Welsh Fire. The top bookmakers in India have The Hundred Odds on their platform.
Both teams will be desperate for a win to solidify their position in the points table and move upward. There will be some interesting mini-battles to watch out for in the match. Matthew Short, with the kind of form he is in, could be a headache for the Invincibles, but they would deploy Sunil Narine against him, which will be a challenge for both players. The left-hand seamer, Reece Topley, will also ask difficult questions against the out-of-form opening duo of Jason Roy and Will Jacks.
The Superchargers played a batter short in their second match of the tournament and instead played an extra spinner. The move worked well for them, as the batters showed tremendous skills and played well. The playing 11 is predicted to be the same unless Ben Stokes returns and joins the team’s camp. He will be a straight swap with Saif Zaib in the starting 11.
The playing 11 is predicted to be the same unless Ben Stokes returns.
Predicted Lineup: Matthew Short, Tom Banton (wk), Harry Brook, Adam Hose, Saif Zaib/Ben Stokes, David Wiese, Brydon Carse, Wayne Parnell (c), Adil Rashid, Reece Topley, and Callum Parkinson
The playing 11 of the Oval Invincibles is looking fine, and we do not anticipate any changes to their team. Adam Zampa might come into the lineup to replace Nathan Sowter, who has not done much so far in the season.
Jason Roy and Will Jacks will be expected to contribute a lot more with the bat by the team management.
Predicted Lineup: Jason Roy, Will Jacks, Jordan Cox, Heinrich Klaasen, Sam Billings (c, wk), Sam Curran, Tom Curran, Sunil Narine, Gus Atkinson, Zak Chappell, and Nathan Sowter/Adam Zampa
The Northern Superchargers are coming off a scintillating victory against the Southern Brave. They completely dominated the proceedings, and the batters were in fine form. The Oval Invincibles played a tied game in their second match of the season against the Welsh Fire. We predict the home team (the Northern Superchargers) to defeat the visiting team in this forthcoming clash due to their current form and momentum.
