Northern Superchargers v Manchester Originals
Sunday 21 August, 19:00
TV: Live on Sky Sports
Superchargers have been boosted by the return of Harry Brook from England duty. They have finally decided to give David Wiese a proper run and he won man of the match against Phoenix. He should move up a spot.
Possible XI: DU Plessis, Lyth, Brook, Willey, Wiese, Simpson, Bravo, Raine, Rashid, Miles
Originals have added Ireland pacer Josh Little as replacement for Sean Abbott, who is on Australia duty. Abbott's economy was 11.16 so he's hardly a big miss.
Possible XI: Buttler, Salt, Madsen, Russell, Stubbs, Evans, Walter, Hartley, Little, Parkinson, Stanley
There have been first-dig scores of 152 and 143 at Leeds. It's a bit of disappointing return for runs backers as the surface is much better. One would have expected scores of at least in the 160s. We might get 2.206/5 of more than 160. Bet the runs here.
How to play
Superchargers are 2.265/4 and that looks a bet with confidence high after a great result against Phoenix. Originals have won their last two but both came against bottom-feeders Brave and Fire. And their bowling has been consistently pricey. Bet the market here
Buttler and Faf Du Plessis are boosted to 13/5 and 3/1 respectively for top Originals and Superchargers bat. Wiese remains value at 18s for the latter. In-form Adam Lyth is 3/1. Bet the Sportsbook markets here.
