MOW vs NOSW Match Prediction & Betting Tips - Aug 20, 2023

The Manchester Originals have been quite a disappointment this season, especially with a team that has star players like Laura Wolvaardt and Amanda-Jade Wellington. The squad has lost three games in a row to have a 1-3 record and is second-last on the table. Conversely, the Northern Superchargers have shot to third place in the league with three straight wins and a 4-1 record.

Manchester Originals Women vs. Northern Superchargers Women will be played at Old Trafford, Manchester, on August 20th. For information on all cricket games, keep a look for the betting odds.

MOW vs NOSW Team Previews

Manchester Originals Women

It’s clear that Wolvaardt is falling short of her own talents this season, as she was the leading scorer in the entire league last year. However, this season she’s picked up just 93 runs for a mediocre average of 23.25. Her scores are quite reliable, but she’s failed to score past 40, and this is a league where fast scoring is important.

Dottin has done well with 105 runs, but the team isn’t getting enough from Lamb (51) or Campbell (45). With Dottin and Wolvaardt not having amazing seasons, you’d hope someone else stands out of the crowd with the bat, yet that’s simply not the case with the Originals.

Similar to Wolvaardt, Wellington was the league leader in wickets-taken last season, but she’s had a shocker of a year with poor figures of just 2/87. She’s failed to put any pressure on opposing batters and is being smashed around the ground. Morris is decent with 7/56, but most of those wickets came in a win over the Phoenix when she took 5/7. Ecclestone is also solid with 7 wickets and is probably the team’s most reliable bowler.

Eleanor Threlkeld, Fi Morris, Mahika Gaur, Phoebe Graham, Amanda Jade Wellington, Deandra Dottin, Emma Lamb, Kathryn Bryce, Katie George, Laura Wolvaardt, Sophie Ecclestone.

Northern Superchargers Women

It’s not hard to see why the Superchargers have won three matches in a row, as Litchfield is playing on another level and has excelled in all three games. She has 187 total runs (a great average of 46.75), but her massive 68 runs in a victory over the Invincibles is one of the best performances of her career. We’ve also seen nice batting from Kelly (100) and Armitage (105). We’re not sure what’s happening with Rodrigues (64) and her poor average of 12.80, but the team is still managing to win!

The Superchargers are really winning games with their bowlers, as they have a great roster of talented players who can all contribute in equal measure. In fact, their top three bowlers have eerily close stats, as Smith (7/105), Wareham (7/105), and Davidson-Richards (7/108) all appear to be on the same page with their impressive bowling. Even Higham and Cross are helping out with 4 wickets each.

MOW vs NOSW Toss Prediction

To take advantage of the pitch's excellent batting conditions, the side winning the toss must choose to bat first. The pitch is fairly balanced, but one that is better for bowling in the second innings.

Read our guide on toss predictions to learn how we analyze and come up with our tips.

Pitch and Conditions

The Old Trafford pitch typically favours batters, therefore, any team choosing to bat first will win since they frequently score high totals. Currently, in 60 T20 matches played on this surface, the team batting first has won 34 times. Given their previous success on this surface, it won't be shocking if spinners take several big wickets.

MOW vs NOSW Betting Tips

There’s no doubt that the Originals will have far more exciting Parimatch odds, but considering how badly they’ve been playing lately, we’re not sure we can trust them until they show us something tangible on the field. If Wolvaardt and Wellington don’t pick up their games, then the Originals will have no chance of reaching the Final.

The Superchargers recently defeated the Originals by 4 runs, so they clearly have the upper hand. The squad is well-balanced with batters and bowlers, but Litchfield is the clear leader of the team. Hopefully Rodrigues can contribute a bit more with the bat, as well.

Bet on the Northern Superchargers Women to win.

Bonus Cricket Bets

  1. Bet365


    Manchester Originals Women Top Batter: Deandra Dottin



It's rare that you wouldn't go with Wolvaardt, but we actually trust Dottin more right now. Dottin has 105 runs for the season and is averaging 26.25, but she's performing better than Wolvaardt. Dottin's odds are great and she's scored more than 25 runs in each of her last 3 games.

  1. Parimatch


    Northern Superchargers Women Top Batter: Hollie Armitage



Although we think Litchfield is still the team's best batter, the odds are far more exciting to pick Armitage. Plus, Armitage has done well with 106 runs and had a great performance of 42 runs.

  1. Betway


    Northern Superchargers Women Top Bowler: Alice Davidson-Richards



This one is tough, as Davidson-Richards, Smith, and Wareham are all bowling very well for the team and are sharing the success. Still, the odds are better for Davidson-Richards and there's a great return if she is the top bowler. She has 8 wickets and a top performance of 3/20.
