It is a shame that the ECB has not been able to market the T20 Blast better because the quality of matches is truly brilliant. Worcestershire Rapids started their Vitality T20 Blast 2021 campaign with a heart-stopping tie and will now be taking on the Northamptonshire Steelbacks.
This will be the first match for Northamptonshire of this season and it will be looking to get off to a strong start. Northamptonshire dominated the T20 Blast between 2013 and 2016 but has since fallen behind.
Neither of the two teams is going to be taking the other lightly.
Match prediction and betting tips for Northamptonshire vs Worcestershire T20 Blast 2021. The match is going to be played at the County Ground, Northampton on the 11th of June 2021.
The lineup for the Steelbacks promises to be quite competitive this season. Their batting is going to revolve around familiar names as Richard Levi and Josh Cobb lead the unit. Levi has been very inconsistent for some time now and this season could be very important for his career.
Mohammad Nabi and Adam Rossington help add some depth and power to the batting lineup. We have a feeling that Nabi is going to bat higher in the T20 Blast than he does at some of the other T20 Leagues.
With his bowling also effective in this format of the game, Mohammad Nabi is going to be key to their team’s success. Look for betting markets on Nabi where you can get odds on him scoring a Six and picking up a wicket.
Wayne Parnell, Saif Zaib, Ben Sanderson, and Brandon Glover form a pretty good bowling attack. There is no wrist-spinner here but plenty of variety nonetheless.
Richard Levi, Adam Rossington, Ricardo Vasconcelos, Josh Cobb, Wayne Parnell, Rob Keogh, Saif Zaib, Tom Taylor, Graeme White, Ben Sanderson, Brandon Glover.
Worcestershire opened its account with a surprisingly low-scoring game in which it could only score 152. We say surprisingly because matches in the T20 Blast tend to be very high-scoring in general and also because Worcestershire has a very strong batting lineup.
Moeen Ali, Rikki Wessels, and Brett D’Oliviera were unable to get any significant runs and it was left to the middle/lower order to repair the inning. In the long run, some time in the middle for Libby, Cox, Whiteley, and Barnard is a good thing but Worcestershire is going to expect more from its top-order.
Moeen Ali is one of the cleanest hitters of the ball and really goes all guns blazing in the T20 Blast. Betting markets on Moeen Ali to Hit a Six or even to be the top scorer are very enticing.
Ish Sodhi, Moeen Ali, and Charlie Morris pulled things back very well to help Worcestershire escape with a tie in the previous match. Ben Dwarshius could find the smaller grounds a bit more difficult to navigate than the Australian ones he is used to.
The bowling is good without being great and it is the batting that is going to have the most work.
Riki Wessels, Brett D Oliveira, Jake Libby, Moeen Ali, Ben Cox, Ross Whiteley, Ed Barnard, Ben Dwarshuis, Ish Sodhi, Josh Tongue, Charlie Morris.
The team that wins the toss is going to want to bowl first. Defending a total on the smaller grounds can be a nightmare and fielding first should be seen as a definite advantage.

The weather forecast is excellent and there is not going to be any rain by the looks of it. The pitch at Northampton is going to be good for batting, offer consistent bounce, and the boundaries are also small in size.
All this equates to a boundary-hitting fest that could result in a very high-scoring match.
Something around 180-190 in both innings cannot be ruled out.
We are going to back Worcestershire to win its first match of the T20 Blast 2021 season. It has a stronger batting lineup and its spinners could pose some difficult questions to the opposition batsmen. Northamptonshire is not a weak team by any means but it does appear to be stagnating a little and aging a little.
