Both Durham and Birmingham Bears are out of the running for a playoff spot in the T20 Blast 2019. There were some good performances from both teams but they have lost their way in the recent weeks losing most of their matches. This has made this match insignificant to the overall standings and the players will just be playing for personal pride.
Birmingham Bears are at the bottom of the league standings while Durham is just two spots up, not wanting to finish last could also be a good motivator for both teams in this match.
Durham vs Birmingham Bears T20 Blast 2019 is going to be played at the Riverside Ground Chester-le-Street on the 27th of August 2019.
We though Durham bowled pretty well in its most recent match against Yorkshire. Nathan Rimmington took three wickets for just sixteen runs and helped keep Yorkshire down to a total of 146. That should not have been a very difficult chase but Durham’s batsmen disappointed yet again.
Durham has been dependent on Darcy Short to play match-winning innings almost every time he steps on the field. In the previous match too, Durham was in the hunt until Shot and Scott Steel were at the crease. Once they got out, the following batsmen were not able to put up any resistance.
In the end, Durham folded for just 132 and ended up being all-out even before the completion of the twenty overs.
The same story has played multiple times and this dependence on Darcy Short is not going anywhere.
Durham does not have the depth or the quality consistently challenge good teams and we think it is going to have a tough time against the Birmingham Bears as well.

The Birmingham Bears are dead last on the league table and their T20 Blast 2019 season has been obviously horrific. They have some experienced players in the side who have performed well for them in the past but it looks there might be a need for some change now.
Dom Sibley, Sam Hain, Adam Hose, and Will Rhodes are all decent players who can score freely in T20 cricket. Their form this season has been extremely patchy and it is difficult to see any of them doing something spectacular suddenly at the end of the season.
The Birmingham Bears will have to hope that their sum total of batting might is better than Durham, although that may not be true if Darcy Short gets going.
Jeetan Patel, Henry Brooks, Chris Green, and Alex Thompson are a decent bowling attack. There is no real bowler that is going to run through sides but most of them are steady and try to keep the runs scoring low.

Durham vs Birmingham Bears T20 Blast 2019 is going to be played at the Riverside Ground Chester-le-Street on the 27th of August 2019. The weather forecast for match day is pretty decent. We should be able to get a full match in without any weather interruptions.
The pitch at Chester-le-Street is excellent for batting and we don’t think there is any change expected in the surface for this match.
The two teams are pretty evenly matched. They have some clear weaknesses and a few strengths which are not going to surprise anyone. We think Durham’s only hope of winning is for a superb individual performance from Darcy Short. If they don’t get that then the Birmingham Bears should be able to win, which is what we are advising.
Bet on the Birmingham Bears to win.
