The Northern Superchargers made history in the Hundred on Thursday night as they became the first team to hit 200 runs off their allocation. The total is more reminiscent of the ECB's aspirations for the tournament, its only shortcomings in an otherwise groundbreaking inaugural season being a relative lack of big runs and dominant boundary-hitting.

The Manchester Originals were beaten before they had hit a ball, with bowlers such as Steven Finn and Carlos Brathwaite enduring a chastening evening, and were eventually bowled out for 131 off 99 deliveries, losing by a sizeable 69 runs.
