Who are the Northern Superchargers?
The Northern Superchargers are one of the eight founding Hundred franchises who compete in both the men and ladies tournaments every year. Even though the Superchargers are based in Leeds and play their cricket at Headingley, they represent a larger area of cricket fans including Yorkshire and the North East of England.
Both are very strong cricket communities, but in particular is Yorkshire, with it being one of the largest and wealthiest cricketing counties and has led to the saying “Strong Yorkshire, Strong England”.
In June 2019, this northern based franchise would go by its current name with its kit colours being purple and white. During the first draft in October 2019, players largely came from the counties of Yorkshire and Durham with also some overseas based players.
The Hundred History of Northern Superchargers
Shortly after the announcement of the eight franchises that would compete in the Hundred, it was decided in July 2019 that Australian Darren Lehman would become the first coach of the men’s team. Whilst the role for the Women’s team went to Durham born and former England player Danielle Hazelle.
Lehman was a former Australian international player and coach and, more importantly, also represented Yorkshire as an overseas player for 9 years. However, after only one year in charge the role was taken over by former Essex wicketkeeper James Foster. Whilst the role for the Women’s team the Head Coach role went to Durham born and former England player Danielle Hazelle, who remains at the helm.
When the inaugural The Hundred draft took place in October 2019, the Northern Superchargers had arguably the biggest headline draftee, that being England player and local lad, Ben Stokes. He was joined by fellow England internationals Adil Rashid and David Willey, with Willey being named as captain. Whilst Lauren Winfield-Hill was the headline draftee for the women’s side.
How to Place Bets on the Northern Superchargers
There are a number of ways a cricket fan can be a part of the action when it comes to betting on the Northern Supercharges. Customers have the opportunity to bet on outright markets, this involves placing bets on who you believe will be the winner of the men’s or women’s tournament. Ultimately, choosing who you believe will be crowned champions.
A potential customer is also able to place bets on the result of individual matches involving the Superchargers. Be sure to look at the match betting odds before the Supercharges next fixture, so that when it comes down to it you are able to place a bet on the Superchargers to win their match. More specifically, you may want to take a look at some of the other betting markets, for example, the Top Batter or Top Bowler.
A popular part of The Hundred betting markets are the pre-match wagering or In-Play betting for which there are plenty of opportunities available. It is a good option for customers who didn’t have time to place a bet beforehand or want to make the game more interesting when they are watching it live. Live odds are normally produced on a ball by ball basis and on some of the top cricket betting sites you can also bet on the outcome of every single ball bowled.
Sometimes customers are confident about many individual bets and will therefore like to place accumulator bets. This is also possible to do in The Hundred. Therefore, there is the chance to be able to add bets that include the Northern Superchargers along with other cricketing teams to your cricket acca. An accumulator bet means that the match odds are multiplied with the other match odds on your betting slip.
A cricket fan will also have the chance to place a Hundred Bet Builder, which means that they are actually able to choose from a variety of markets and selections that are all happening within the same match.
