MAO vs NOS Team Previews

Manchester Originals

The Originals had a sedate start to their campaign but they have managed to gather steam as the tournament has progressed. They have secured back-to-back wins in the run-up to this contest and are currently placed 3rd on the points table. A win in this match will almost secure them a place in the playoffs.

Jos Buttler has consistently played well for the Manchester Originals and is the top-scorer for the team so far. Phil Salt has looked out of form for most of this season but scored a thumping 86 in his latest outing, making him a player to watch out for.

The middle order remains a big weakness for the Originals as Laurie Evans, Max Holden, and Ashton Turner have struggled to score runs. The bowlers will also need to do a better job going forward. With Josh Little departing for international duties, there is added responsibility on Josh Tongue, who will begin with the new ball along with Jamie Overton.

Zaman Khan, who is brought in as a replacement for Little, remained wicketless in his debut game. Tom Hartley, Usama Mir, and Paul Walter have done a good job in the spin department, picking up 16 wickets between them.

Northern Superchargers

Much unlike their opponents, the Northern Superchargers have struggled in their recent outings and are now staring at elimination. The team has lost 3 consecutive matches and is 5th on the points table. A loss here will mean that the Superchargers will be left with just a mathematical chance to qualify.

Tom Banton and Matthew Short have done a decent job at the top of the order and are the top two run-getters for the Superchargers. The team will need them to give a good start. They have strengthened the middle order by bringing in Adam Lyth, who was the top-scorer for them last season.

He will join the likes of Adam Hose, Harry Brook, and Saif Zaib in the middle order. The Superchargers do seem a bit out of depth when it comes to batting, making the job of the middle-order batsmen all the more important. Coming to the bowling, the seamers have done a brilliant job so far.

Reece Topley is the top wicket-taker of the tournament and has received good support from skipper Wayne Parnell. More will be expected of spinners Adil Rashid and Callum Parkinson, as they have just 10 wickets to show between them.

Pitch and Conditions

The pitch at Old Trafford is good to bat on and offers a good deal of pace and bounce. The batsmen will have no problems playing their shots once they settle down. There is a bit of grass on the surface which will help the quicker bowlers get some movement. The pitch does slow down a bit in the second half, helping the spinners. 


MAO vs NOS Betting Tips

Playing at home gives the Manchester Originals an advantage and we think that they will come out on top. The opening pair is in good form and the team has some quality players in the middle order. Their biggest strength however is likely to be the spinners.

Bet on the Manchester Originals to win.
