About the Match

Worcestershire started off the tournament in flying fashion but things haven't gone their way of late. Although they are still in a commanding position at number three in the points table, their slip from the first spot is a cause for concern. They are set to take on Northamptonshire who are struggling to register their first win of the tournament. The match is scheduled to be played at Wantage Road on 27th July 2018.

Match Preview

Northamptonshire

Being regarded as one of the dark horses in the tournament before it all began, Northamptonshire haven't lived up to that expectation. Only points they've scored in the points table are due to the virtue of the game they tied with Birmingham Bears.

While they've batted well on the whole in the tournament, their bowling has spilled the beans for them. In their last game against Warwickshire, their bowlers gave away as many as 231 runs in the allotted 20 overs. For Warwickshire, Boyd Ranking and Jeetan Patel were exceptional, but Northants managed to hit the other bowlers at will as they were hammered for 180 runs in the remaining 12 overs. Their batting did fairly well in setting up a massive total batting first, but their bowling failed to deliver yet again.

Ian Bell punished their bowlers as he raced to a superb hundred. He scored 131 runs off just 62 deliveries. Nathan Buck was the best bowler for Northamptonshire on that day as he picked up three wickets for 38 in his four overs. The other bowlers were carted for runs and the match eventually ended up in a tie.

Northamptonshire Starting Lineup

Richard Levi, Ben Duckett, Josh Cobb, Alex Wakely, Kyle Coetzer, Steven Crook, S Prasanna, Rory Kleinveldt, Graeme White, Nathan Buck, Richard Gleeson.

Worcestershire

Ben Cox, who was bravely playing with the broken ribs, might miss this game for Worcestershire. As per the team management, the final decision will be taken after the fitness test which is scheduled to happen on the match day. Worcestershire have had a bad couple of games and the absence of Ben Cox could be a big setback for them.

After four terrific matches where they racked up comprehensive wins, their loss against Yorkshire and Durham was surprising to many. They failed to chase down 180 on a good batting surface and got bundled out for just 121 while batting first against Durham. Their batting failed them again in their most recent championship game which they lost to Somerset by a whopping margin of 141 runs.

Ben Stokes rattled through their lineup in their last game against Durham as Guptill, Cox, Whiteley, and Pennington perished on his bowling. Travis Head played well for his 37-ball 40, but he was the only player who was looking to play with some responsibility. Defending 121 was never going to be challenging, let alone match-winning, and it didn't prove to be any different. Durham chased the target down in fifteenth over with seven wickets to spare. Worcestershire are coming into this match on the back of a wobble, and they have the best chance to get back to the winning ways as they face Northamptonshire who have been listless so far in the competition.

Worcestershire Starting Lineup

Martin Guptill, TM Head, Joe Clarke, Moeen Ali, Brett D Oliveira, Ben Cox, Ross Whiteley, Ed Barnard, Patrick Brown, Luke Wood, Andy carter.

Our Prediction

Both the teams are coming on the back of defeats in their respective championship games. Worcestershire have had a bad couple of games, but for Northamptonshire, it's been their whole campaign. The Steelbacks have struggled with their bowling with bowlers guilty leaking too many runs. The absence of Ben Cox might be a setback for the Rapids, but their power-packed batting lineup coupled with decent bowling attack makes them the better placed team to win this upcoming encounter.
