Cricket Betting Tips and Match Prediction - Vitality Blast T20 2019 - Nottinghamshire v Worcestershire
Nottinghamshire will face Worcestershire for the second match of Vitality T20 Blast, to be played at Trent Bridge in Nottingham.
Nottingham will have an edge over Worcester as they have beaten them nine times out of the total 14 matches played between the two teams. The last game that both teams were a part of, saw Nottinghamshire earn a comfortable five-wicket win over their opponents in the last year's T20 Blast.
The match will be played in Nottingham which will obviously be more familiar to the home team. However, Nottingham lost four of the seven matches played at this venue last year.
Worcestershire don't have a good record against Nottinghamshire and have lost four out of the last 6 T20Is they have played against the latter. That said, in both the last two matches played between the two teams, Worcestershire have come out victorious.
Openers Riki Wessels and Alex Hales will start of the proceedings for Nottingham. Hales is currently out of the national team and will try his best to stake a claim for a return to the international arena. Wicket keeper-batsman Tom Moores was the highest run-scorer for the team last year and remains an integral part of their batting unit.
Among the bowlers, Harry Gurney will be their chief pacer, while Ish Sodi, who is coming off a forgettable World Cup campaign on an individual front, will be their main spinner.
Joe Clarke and Brett D’Oliveira will be the leading batsmen for Worcestershire, along with all-rounder Moeen Ali. Patrick Brown was the league's highest wicket-taker last year and will lead the team's bowling attack along with Wayne Parnell.
Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:
Nottinghamshire- Riki Wessels, Alex Hales, Jake Libby, Tom Moores (wk), Daniel Christian (c), Steven Mullaney, Samit Patel, Luke Fletcher, Matthew Carter, Ish Sodhi, Harry Gurney
Worcestershire- Moeen Ali (c), Joe Clarke, Thomas Charles Fell, Brett D’Oliveira, Ben Cox (wk), Ross Whiteley, Daryl Mitchell, Ed Barnard, Wayne Parnell, Luke Wood, Patrick Brown
