Men’s Hundred 2022: Old Trafford, Manchester Pitch Report And Weather Conditions

Manchester Originals did not enjoy a great campaign in 2021. Hence, they would want to make amends in the second season, which started on August 3rd. The team’s first game will be against the Northern Superchargers on August 5th. Here, we take a look at the weather conditions in Manchester and the pitch report of the Old Trafford Stadium in the city, from where the Manchester Originals will be based.

Manchester Originals actually have a fine squad. If they can work together, going all the way might not be impossible. While Jos Buttler will be their most important cricketer, the likes of Phil Salt, Matt Parkinson and Wanindu Hasaranga will also be expected to do well. Buttler has had a tough time both with the bat and captaincy in recent weeks. Hence, the English fans will be curious as to how he would perform.

Old Trafford, Manchester pitch report for Men’s Hundred 2022


So far, eleven T20I games have been held at Manchester in England. Out of this, six games have been won by teams batting second. There have been three games that ended without a result. This is a clear indication of what to expect in the coming days.

The average score batting first is just 139. The bowlers will be expected to have an impact in almost every encounter. This pitch has never seen a team scoring a 200. However, at the same time, the lowest team score recorded on this trick is 135. Therefore, we can witness a close game between the bat and the ball. While KL Rahul‘s 101* in 2018 is the highest individual score, Kuldeep Yadav’s 5/24 in the same game is the best bowling performance on this track.

Manchester weather conditions for Men’s Hundred 2022

Manchester is known for its uncomfortable weather. We could experience some part of it in August. The temperatures could range between 12 to 18 degrees Celsius this month.


However, a maximum of 15 days of rainfall is expected. This is bad news for the cricket lovers who would have expected some uninterrupted cricket action in the Hundred.
