WOR vs LEI Match Prediction - Aug 04, 2019

With plenty of matches already done and dusted in the Vitality T20 Blast, the difference in the number of points between the teams in the top half of the table and at the bottom is growing with every passing match. The match match in the tournament is going to be played between two teams who are placed at almost ends at the ladder, Worcestershire and Leicestershire. The two teams are set to lock horns at New Road in Worcester on Sunday, 4th August. The competition to grab the top-spot in the North Group is getting fiercer as well and Worcestershire are just one point behind Lancashire and will be keen to get to the top of the table. Leicestershire Foxes, on the other hand, will be looking to get back to the winning ways before they are left to do too much in too little time.

WOR vs LEI Team Previews


Placed at the second spot in the North Group ladder, Worcestershire are coming into this game with a sensational three-win streak behind them and will love to take it to four. Worcestershire have lost only one match so far in the tournament which was against Lancashire.

Since their defeat to Lancashire, Worcestershire Rapids haven't found themselves in any trouble whatsoever in any of their matches. In their most recent encounter, against Yorkshire, they posted a rather convincing win as they chased down the total of 17 with five wickets in hand and 15 balls to spare.

While the total of 177 was competitive, at least considering Yorks' strong bowling attack, Riki Wessels had other ideas. He looked in a different mood as he slammed all Yorkshire's bowlers with disdain evident by the fact that his knock included ten fours and five sixes, amounting to 70 runs in boundaries.

In the tournament so far, Worcestershire Rapids have done incredibly well in all three departments of the game, which has been the primary reason for their superb winning streak. In the last match, their batsmen bailed them out after their bowlers were smacked around. They have a pretty good balance with their batting and bowling complementing each other brilliantly and if they continue to play in the same manner, the Rapids will be a tough side to deal with.

Leicestershire have been the worst performing side of the tournament in the North Group, and as far as the qualification for the next round is concerned, things are looking bleak for them. Apart from not having too many points in their kitty, they have an extraordinary net run-rate of -2.741, which speaks volumes about the way they have performed in the competition.

The Foxes are coming off a poor performance against Durham Jets where they failed to excel in both the departments of the game. Batting first on a decent enough batting surface, Leicestershire batsmen struggled to come to terms with Durham bowling attack as they crawled to a score of 142 for 7 in the allotted twenty overs. Barring their skipper Colin Ackermann, who scored a valiant fifty, none of their batsmen could get going which resulted in an exceptionally low score.

Their bowlers needed to bowl in right areas from the word go, but D'Arcy Short never allowed them to settle as Durham Jets cruised to yet another quick win. All in all, Leicestershire have plenty to improve, in all departments of the game, which is certainly not going to be easy for them.
