©Cricket World / John Mallett

Round seven of the Virtual County Championship between Worcestershire and Nottinghamshire 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.

Worcestershire pulled off a heist against Middlesex in their round 6 match. Daryl Mitchell, Ben Cox and Josh Tongue were their top scorers while Joe Leach was sensational for them, picking up 11 wickets through the game.

They earned 22 points from their victory but have still been stuck at the seventh place with two 2 wins and 3 losses from their 5 games. Worcestershire have 54 points and will take on Nottinghamshire who are slightly better positioned. The Notts have 2 wins, 2 losses and one drawn game out of their 5 matches with a total of 60 points.

They would be buoyed after their 165-run victory over Sussex in their last game. Ben Duckett was their star batsman in the first innings while Jeetan Patel, Chris Nash and Ben Slater chipped in with crucial knocks in the second essay.

Despite no century, Nottinghamshire were still able to post targets of around 300 in both the innings. These are good signs as almost all of their batsmen looked in good shape and it will certainly help in the match against the Worcestershire.

The rest of the job was done by the bowlers with Jake Ball picking up 11 wickets in the match, including his 8-fer in the first innings. It was Stuart Broad who took charge in the last innings with figures of 6/78.

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
