©Cricket World / John Mallett

Round nine of the Virtual County Championship between Nottinghamshire and Worcestershire is being held by Cricket World and Dice Cricket to help the fans stay tuned to cricketing action from the comforts of their home amid the Covid-19 outbreak.

Nottinghamshire are placed at the 7th spot in the Virtual County Championship Divison 2 points table with 2 wins and 4 losses. The team has 67 points from 7 matches.

They will square off against Worcestershire who are placed at the 3rd spot in the leaderboard. Worcestershire have 4 wins and 3 losses. The county is with 94 points from 7 games.

Worcestershire would consider themselves fortunate for claiming a thrilling 1-wicket victory in the last match against Derbyshire. The team could manage only 126 runs in their first innings but it was their second innings' total of 335 with half-centuries from Moeen Ali and Brett D'Oliveira which sealed the deal for them.

Both Joe Leach and Josh Tongue picked up 5 wickets each in the first innings while Tongue starred with 3/70 in the second innings.

Nottinghamshire suffered an 8-wicket defeat in their round 8 match against Glamorgan. The team posted 238 runs on the board on the back of 92 from Steven Mullaney and 60 from Ben Slater but that did not stack up well against Glamorgan's 372. The team was bowled for just 187 in the next innings as they conceded the defeat.

Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:

Worcestershire - Daryl Mitchell, Jake Libby, Brett D’Oliveira, Tom Fell, Moeen Ali, Ben Cox, Ross Whiteley, Ed Barnard, Joe Leach, Josh Tongue, Charlie Morris

Nottinghamshire - Ben Slater, Ben Duckett, Haseeb Hameed, Joe Clarke, Steven Mullaney, Chris Nash, Samit Patel, Tom Moores, Stuart Broad, Luke Fletcher, Jake Ball
