In the inaugural year of The Hundred it was a bottom half of the table finish for both the men’s and women’s Northern Superchargers’ sides.

The women finished in sixth position after three wins and four losses, while the men ended their campaign in fifth place, also on seven points.

Highlights for the men included posting 200-5 in a 69-run thrashing over rivals Manchester Originals and a 63-run victory over London Spirit at Lord’s. For the women, two of their three victories came at Headingley, beating Welsh Fire by six wickets and the Oval Invincibles by four runs.
