Who are the Manchester Originals?
The Manchester Originals are one of the eight Hundred franchises who compete in the men and ladies tournament every year. Based in Manchester, they represent Lancashire which is a proud cricket county that has produced a number of world-class players throughout their history.
In June 2019, it was decided that Manchester Originals would be formed with their current name, with players coming from Lancashire when it came to the first draft of the competition which started in 2021.
The Hundred History of Manchester Originals
The Manchester Originals are one of the few teams who represent just one county, thus giving them a stronger identity than some of The Hundred franchises which have seen a merger of two or more counties.
Shortly after deciding to set the team up and compete in The Hundred, it was decided in July 2019 that Simon Katich would become the first captain of the team. The former Australian international had also represented Lancashire as a player.
Katich had previous experience when it came to coaching Trinbago Knight Riders in the Caribbean Premier League and he had previously taken charge of Royal Challengers Bangalore when it had come to the Indian Premier League.
When the inaugural The Hundred draft took place in October 2019, Jos Buttler was nominated captain after emerging as the centrally-contracted England player that could lead the team. Kate Cross became the first ladies captain of Manchester Originals, while Paul Shaw was the first ever women’s coach of the team.
How to Place Bets on the Manchester Originals
There are lots of ways to get involved when it comes to betting on the Manchester Originals. There is the opportunity to bet on the outright market when it comes to the men’s tournament and the ladies tournament, with customers able to choose the teams that they think will be crowned champions.
You can also bet on the individual matches involving the Originals. Check out the Manchester Originals match betting odds when it comes to their next fixture. You can bet on them to win their match or alternatively look at some of the other betting markets such as Top Batter or Top Bowler.
The Hundred betting markets are plentiful when it comes to pre-match wagering or In-Play betting. Many customers like to wait for the game to go live so that they can enjoy betting on the live odds on a ball by ball basis. Indeed, you can bet on the outcome of every ball that is bowled with some of the top cricket betting sites.
Sometimes customers like to place Hundred cricket accumulator bets. There is therefore the chance to add the Manchester Originals to your cricket acca along with other teams. That means that the match odds are multiplied with the other match odds on your betting slip.
There could also be the chance to place a Hundred Bet Builder and that means choosing a number of markets and selections that are actually happening within the same match.
