Cricket Betting Tips and Match Prediction Royal London One-Day Cup 2019 Quarter-final - Worcestershire v Somerset
One of the two quarter-finals of the Royal London One-Day Cup, will be played between Worcestershire from the north group, which ended at the second spot with six wins and two losses from eight matches and Somerset from the south group, which were at the third spot at the end of the league stage with five wins and three losses from eight matches.
The two teams will clash against each other at New Road in Worcester. Even though Worcestershire had two points more than Somerset after the group matches, that will not be a matter of consideration as the team losing the quarter final will be knocked out of the tournament.
Worcestershire have found an amazing run of form and have won consecutive matches against Notts Outlaws, Yorkshire Vikings and Derbyshire Falcons. The game against Falcons was a particularly high-scoring one as Worcestershire went on to chase down the target of 352 successfully.
While Wayne Parnell was their strike bowler, both Riki Wessels and Callum Ferguson struck centuries to achieve the rare feat.
Somerset also won their last league match against Surrey by five wickets, credit to some outstanding bowling from Craig Overton and Jamie Overton. Among the batsmen, James Hildreth was the highest run-scorer, while Tom Banton and George Bartlett also notched up half-centuries.
Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams.
Worcestershire- Thomas Charles Fell, Riki Wessels, Callum Ferguson, George Rhodes, Brett DOliveira, Ben Cox, Ross Whiteley, Ed Barnard, Wayne Parnell, Patrick Brown, Josh Tongue
Somerset- Tom Banton, Azhar Ali, Peter Trego, James Hildreth, Tom Abell, George Bartlett, Lewis Gregory, Roelof van der Merwe, Craig Overton, Jamie Overton, Josh Davey
