This article will talk about the probable XIs for both teams and continue with the Dream11 predictions and the winning fantasy team for Match 13 of “The Hundred” between Northern Superchargers and Oval Invincibles that is scheduled to take place on the 31st of July 2021.
The Northern Superchargers team who are yet to win a game in this edition of The Hundred will take on the Oval Invincibles in their respective fourth game at Leeds. The Invincibles have won a game and are placed 4th at this point.
The last match of Northern Superchargers was washed out due to rain against Manchester Originals. They will aim for a complete game against Oval Invincibles and open their winning account in this inaugural season for The Hundred 2021.
Similarly, Oval Invincibles also faced a washed-out game against London Spirit in their last match. They have already won one match in this tournament so they will aim to win another match and put one step ahead in this ongoing tournament.
Venue: Headingley, Leeds
Pitch and Weather: Headingley generally offers a batting surface as we have seen in the opening match of Superchargers. The batsman will enjoy this surface as batsmen with plenty of fours and sixes are expected in this match. However, the pacers will also get assistance from the surface with the new ball. The average score in this match will be around 160. The weather of Headingley will be cloudy during the match hours like a couple of showers can interrupt the game.
Date & Time: July 31, 11 PM IST
Probable Playing XIs
Both the team’s last game was washed out due to rain so they are unlikely to make any changes in the playing XI. However, some of the International players went back for the Test series so new players will get their chance in both teams.
Ben Stokes can be replaced by Matty Potts for Northern Superchargers. On the other hand, Sam Curran can be replaced by Nathan Sowter.
Adam Lyth (c), Chris Lynn, Harry Brook, Tom Kohler-Cadmore, David Willey, John Simpson (wk), Mujeeb ur Rehman, Adil Rashid, Matty Potts, Brydon Carse, and Callum Parkinson
Jason Roy, Will Jacks, Colin Ingram, Laurie Evans, Sam Billings(c & wk), Tom Curran, Sunil Narine, Jordan Thompson, Nathan Sowter, Reece Topley, Saqib Mahmood
Northern Superchargers are yet to win their first match in this ongoing tournament and Oval is placed at fourth position in the points table, so Oval Invincibles will start as favorites in this match.
Batsman: Jason Roy is an obvious pick from Oval Invincibles in this match. He scored 20 runs in the first match of the tournament. Colin Ingram scored 17 runs in the same match for Superchargers. Adam Lyth scored 35 runs on two wickets. Brook has scored 100 runs in this tournament so far.
Wicket-Keeper: Sam Billings scored 49 runs in the last match against Invincibles. He will be again an important pick in the middle order. Simpson scored 46 runs in two matches.
All-Rounders: Sunil Narine picked one wicket in the first match and batted in top order so he can be picked from the all-rounder section. David Willey can be picked as the second all-rounder in this match.
Bowlers: Tom Curran scored 29 runs and picked one wicket in the first match. Adil Rashid picked three wickets in two matches for Superchargers. Parkinson picked two wickets in the last match.
Fantasy Team: Sam Billings, John Simpson, Colin Ingram, Adam Lyth, Jason Roy(c), Harry Brook(vc), Sunil Narine, David Willey, Adil Rashid, Tom Curran, Callum Parkinson
Captain – Jason Roy
Jason Roy is the best batsman in this match and will have the best chance to score most runs, so he will be the best pick for the captain.
Vice-Captain – Harry Brook
Harry Brook is running in terrific form, as he scored 100 runs in two matches so he will be the best pick for vice-captain.
