Cricket Betting Tips and Match Prediction Vitality Blast T20 2019 - Worcestershire v Nottinghamshire
The next north group match of the Vitality Blast T20 2019 will be played between Worcestershire and Nottinghamshire at New Road in Worcester.
Worcestershire are placed at the fourth spot in the north group points table of the Vitality Blast T20 2019 with six wins and four losses from 12 matches. Two of their games have been abandoned due to rain as a result of which they have 14 points and a net run rate of +0.278.
Just above them are Nottinghamshire with six wins and three losses from 12 matches. They have 15 points and a net run rate of +0.672.
Nottinghamshire won their last match against Yorkshire by three runs. Batting first, Nottinghamshire, on the back of a half-century from Joe Clarke and 30s from Jake Libby and Daniel Christian, posted 148 runs on the board, which was not that daunting a total. Two wickets each from Harry Gurney and Luke Fletcher helped them restrict Yorkshire to 145.
On the other hand, Worcestershire lost their last match against Lancashire by 25 runs. Although Daryl Mitchell bowled well, all other Worcestershire bowlers were very expensive as Lancashire posted a huge total of 218.
In reply, while there were no great contributions from the top order, it was the unbeaten 89 from Ross Whiteley towards the end that took the team to 193, still falling well short of the target.
Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:
Worcestershire- Riki Wessels, Hamish Rutherford, Moeen Ali, Wayne Parnell, Ben Cox, Thomas Charles Fell, Ross Whiteley, Ed Barnard, Daryl Mitchell, Dillon Pennington, Patrick Brown
Nottinghamshire- Alex Hales, Joe Clarke, Ben Duckett, Jake Libby, Tom Moores, Daniel Christian, Samit Patel, Luke Fletcher, Matthew Carter, Luke Wood, Harry Gurney
