About the Match

Standing 6th in the North Group after garnering 2 points through their win against the Notts, Warwickshire will look forward to making a comeback when they meet Durham, which is placed 2nd on the table with 4 points, on 3rd June at Birmingham. The visitors will be eager to continue with their winning momentum and repeat the good performance on the field; Warwicks on the other hand lost their recent match against Worcs by 5 wickets and will try to redeem themselves with a much-needed win here on Friday.

Warwickshire

Put to bat first against Worcs, Hain and Ian Bell, who posted a well-made 66, put up a 50-run opening stand but the others down the line couldn’t keep the scoreboard ticking. Ronchi was the lone middle-order batsman to score in double digits, which helped them get to a respectable 155 runs. Despite a good performance by bowlers Gordon, Adair and Javid, who provided regular breakthroughs, the total was too less to defend against a hard-hitting Worcs middle-order. In the match against Notts, spinner Patel was stupendous as he claimed 3-23 and looks well set to continue with his good form; Wright and Hannon-Dalby struck with their pace and took 2 wickets each but the others gave away too many runs. Chasing 180, Hain posted an unbeaten 92 off 54 deliveries to steer his team towards victory; Porterfield and Ronchi are in good nick with the bat and they contributed to help Warwicks win the match against Notts by 6 wickets. They have had a mixed run so far but they have the resources to make a comeback here; if Hain, Bell, Porterfield and Ronchi can build a good foundation with the bat, then surely Warwicks bowlers can get a better shot at defending a total.

Durham

It has been a team effort for Durham as the batting line-up worked hard to get the runs flowing against Notts in the last game; while middle-order batsmen Richardson, Pringle and Coughlin revived the innings after a top-order collapse, Collingwood’s exhilarating 44 from 22 took them to 178 runs. Speedsters Coughlin and McCarthy stunned the opponents by taking 3 wickets each to demolish their chase; Jennings, Collingwood and Arshad joined hands to stupefy the Notts batsmen by taking 4 wickets between them and getting them all-out for just 112 runs. Against Lancashire, the batsmen chased down 150 runs with ease thanks to a splendid effort by Mustard, who scored a quick fire 46 from just 18 balls. Clark and Richardson are in good form and they scored 30+ runs each to help win the match against Lancs. McCarthy and Arshad put up brilliant spells in the first innings, taking 3 wickets each to restrict the opponents to 149; along with Collingwood, Coughlin, Jennings and Borthwick, Durham has a solid pace attack that gives them an edge.

Our Prediction

Both teams have well-balanced squads of batsmen and bowlers and the contest would be well fought; although Warwicks are playing at home, we feel Durham with the psychological advantage is better placed to emerge victorious yet again on Friday
