The third match of The Hundred will see a contest between the Manchester Originals and Northern Superchargers. MNR finished 5th in the points table last season with only 3 victories and five losses. But now with the signings of Jos Buttler, Wanindu Hasranga and Andre Russell, MNR is looking a stronger team this season. They also are now the favourites to win the tournament this year.
Talking about NOS, so they also had only 3 wins in the last season and finished sixth in the points table with only 7 points in their kitty. This season it will be Faf du Plessis who will be leading NOS with David Willey, Adil Rashid and Matthew Potts the local English players in the squad.
Thus, this will be a highly interesting contest to watch out for tomorrow as there are T20 heavyweights on both sides.
