The Hundred

Northern Superchargers are a franchise 100-ball cricket side based in the English city of Leeds. The team represents the areas of North East England and Yorkshire in The Hundred competition,[1] which first took place during the 2021 English and Welsh cricket season. Both sides play at Headingley Cricket Ground.


The announcement of the new eight-team men's and women's tournament series in 2019 was not without controversy, with the likes of Virat Kohli criticising the England and Wales Cricket Board for pursuing a shift away from Test cricket,[2] while others argued the format should have followed the established and successful Twenty20 format. The ECB however decided it needed a more unique format to draw crowds.

In August 2019 the side announced that former former England Women player Danielle Hazell had been appointed coach of the women's team, while former Australian batsman Darren Lehmann would be the men's team's first coach.[3]

The inaugural Hundred draft took place in October 2019 and saw the Superchargers claim Lauren Winfield-Hill as their headline women's draftee, and Ben Stokes as the men's headliner. They were joined by England internationals Linsey Smith, Adil Rashid and David Willey.[4]



Both men's and women's sides play at Headingley Cricket Ground, the home of Yorkshire County Cricket Club in the Headingley area of Leeds. The women's side was originally due to play matches at York Cricket Club and South Northumberland Cricket Club, but the team's matches were brought together at the same ground as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
