Probable best batter of the match
Harry Brook— Northern Superchargers
Harry Brook has been exceptional for the Superchargers in the ongoing edition of the Men’s Hundred. In four matches, the right-handed batter has notched 175 runs at an average of 58.33 and strike rate of 152.17. Brook needs to carry his momentum into the next game as the Brave bowlers aren’t in the worst of forms by any means.
Probable best bowler of the match
Adil Rashid— Northern Superchargers
Adil Rashid has been exceptional for the Superchargers in the tournament. The leg-spinner has been amongst the wickets, having racked up eight wickets. His economy of 1.20 is decent enough. Rashid also has a three-wicket haul to his name. He will be looking to churn out another match-winning spell and the Brave batters need to be cautious.
