DUR vs WOR Match Prediction - Aug 15, 2019

With the business end of the tournament coming closer, things are beginning to get very tight. Nottinghamshire and Worcestershire are right behind Lancashire, at the second and third spot respectively, and they both will be looking to march ahead with other teams breathing down their neck. Durham are at the fifth spot with nine points to their name, and another win in their next fixture should push them to the top four. They are set to clash horns with Worcestershire in the upcoming clash of Vitality T20 Blast on 15th August to be played at Riverside Ground in Chester-le-Street. With things getting tighter, every passing match and consequently the point is of massive importance.

DUR vs WOR Team Previews


The Jets are delicately placed in the middle of the points table with nine points to their name. A win here will push them inside the top-four sides whereas a loss would massively hurt their chances to qualify.

Durham are coming off a washout in their previous match where a win would have helped their cause to a good effect. Shared points with Nottinghamshire has left them in a delicate position with most of their upcoming fixtures becoming must-win.

Up until now, Durham Jets have sailed on the performances of D'Arcy Short who has been their most impressive player. Apart from being consistent, his achievements have inflicted massive impact on the overall result, which has been the prime reason for Durham being still in contention to qualify.

With Ben Stokes playing for England, Durham lacked a quality all-rounder in their squad. While that position is still vacant, they have unearthed a new gem, who proved to be a star in their last win. Liam Trevaskis proved to be vital for them as he dismissed three players in the space of an over to guide Durham to a much-needed victory.

Even though Worcestershire Rapids, the defending champions, have done relatively well in the tournament so far, they haven't been as good and dominating as they were last in the last year. They are coming off a heartbreaking defeat at the hands of Derbyshire and will be looking to get back to the winnings ways.

They've been carried by their spectacular top order which consists of Riki Wessels, Callum Ferguson, and Martin Guptill. Guptill and Ferguson combined well in the last game to take them closer to a win with a 73-run stand, but lack of support from their middle-order rendered them a little too short.

While their batting has done exceedingly well in the tournament so far, their bowling has looked far from impressive. Even the likes of Wayne Parnell and Ed Barnard have failed to impress with consistency. Their bowling needs to pickup with crucial matches coming up ahead, and if they can do that, they will become a really hard team to deal with.

Riki Wessels, Martin Guptill, Callum Ferguson, WD Parnell, Ben Cox, Ross Whiteley, Ed Barnard, Daryl Mitchell, Tom Fell, Dillon Pennington, Patrick Brown.
