Northern Superchargers will take on Oval Invincibles in the 13th match of The Hundred Men’s 2021 on Saturday. Northern Superchargers are reeling at the bottom of the table with only one point. They still haven’t found their combination right, which is affecting them a lot. The unavailability of Ben Stokes makes matters even worse for them.
On the other hand, Oval Invincibles started off well with a convincing win over Manchester Originals in the tournament opener. Their second fixture was abandoned due to rain. They currently occupy the 4th spot in the standings with 3 points. Sam Curran won’t be available for the rest of the tournament and he is a big shoe to fill.
