Worcestershire suffered a pretty comprehensive defeat at the hands of Lancashire in its last match and will be happy to be coming up against Durham now. The Durham side is one of the weaker ones that we have seen in the Vitality T209 Blast 2019.
They managed to win their previous match against Leicestershire by 9 wickets but considering the form of Leicestershire, that is not something to guarantee future performances.
Worcestershire Rapids are the defending champions of the T20 Blast and a very strong unit. They would have been disappointed at the manner in which they lost the last match. Can they hit back against Durham and make a statement?
Worcestershire vs Durham is going to be played at New Road, Worcester on the 28th of July 2019.
The matches come one after the other in the T20 Blast and this can be a good thing for teams that have lost a match. There is no time to dwell or worry about what went wrong. Just get up and start working towards the next match.
Worcestershire has all the ingredients to be very successful this year as well. Their batting lineup is stacked with quality players like Martin Guptill, Riki Wessels, Callum Ferguson, and more.
They also have some very underrated T20 payers like Brett D’Oliveira, Be Cox, and Ross Whitely.
Not only do they have power in their batting but the bowling is also ideally suited to T20 cricket. We think it is only a matter of time before Patrick Brown is called up the English side now that the World T20 is around the corner.
Daryl Mitchell, Wayne Parnell, and Dillon Pennington are in some decent form as well.
A loss against the strong Lancashire side is not something to panic about. Yes, the batsmen would have liked to put up more of a fight but this is a long tournament and there are going to be some off days. We still believe that Worcestershire Rapids are going to be able to win more matches than they lose and will end up qualifying for the playoff stages.

A 9 wicket win against Leicestershire for Durham is a good way to prepare for the match against the defending champions of the T20 Blast.
Durham’s overseas player and superb T20 batsman, Darcy Short, top scored with 77 not out while Scott Steel played an unbelievably aggressive inning of 70 from just 30 deliveries. It was the kind of inning that is going to get him noticed around the league.
We are highly doubtful he is going to be able to repeat that performance in the upcoming matches but it certainly gives Durham some hope.
Ben Raine, Stuart Poynter , and Graham Clark are pretty decent batsmen as well. If the top-order can continue to set the stage then Durham could cause an upset in some matches.
They are going to have a lot tougher time against the strong Worcestershire bowling, though, and we would not bet on a repeat of the batting miracle in this match.
Nathan Rimmington and Matty Potts were the standout bowlers for Durham in the previous match. Darcy Short is also bowling regularly and is contributing with some wickets. There are a few good options in the bowling attack but clearly, there are more than a few weak links also.
Durham’s bowling will have to have its best day of the tournament yet to be able to stop a loaded Worcestershire batting from running riot.
The win against Leicestershire is going to put Durham in some good spirits but they have a huge challenge up ahead of them.

Worcestershire vs Durham T20 Blast 2019 is going to be played at New Road, Worcester. The weather forecast for match day is a bit mixed. There are some clouds around and some rain is expected to fall on and off throughout the day.
We could have some interruptions to the match but we should be able to get a result in.
The pitch at New Road is decent for batting. It is flat but does not have the pace that most batsmen prefer. A score of around 170 should be considered par for the surface.
We think Worcestershire has the clear upper hand in this game. They have the stronger batting, better bowling, and are playing at home.
Bet on Worcestershire to win.
