WOR vs WRW Match Prediction & Analysis

Worcestershire won a very important match against Somerset in its previous outing. It was the first win of the T20 Blast and helped make the Central group a bit closer. Now, it is going to be taking on the Birmingham Bears, a side that is currently sitting on the third spot in the table standings.

A win here could help the Bears go top of the table while another win for Worcestershire would really open up the fight for the playoff spots.

Worcestershire vs Birmingham Bears T20 Blast 2020 is going to be played at New Road, Worcester on the 13th of September 2020.

Team Previews

Worcestershire

We thought Worcestershire got away with an average performance in its previous match against Somerset. They only scored 168 and then benefitted from a poor batting display by Somerset. That was a win where Somerset failed to take its chances rather than Worcestershire doing anything special.

Runs for Hamish Rutherford, Jake Libby, and Ben Cox is an encouraging sign. The Worcestershire batting is pretty decent on paper and has been the basis of its success in past seasons as well.

With the powerful Ross Whiteley and Brett D'Oliveira down the order, Worcestershire has a good shot of getting to good totals.

Patrick Brown picked up three wickets in the previous match, his best performance of the Blast this season. His success is another very good sign for Worcestershire since he is such an impactful bowler. Ed Barnard has also been in the wickets.

Worcestershire seems to be a side on the upswing and could be a handful in this match.

Worcestershire Playing 11

Hamish Rutherford, Riki Wessels, Jake Libby, Brett D Oliveira, Ben Cox, Ross Whiteley, Ed Barnard, Daryl Mitchell, Dillon Pennington, Patrick Brown, Charlie Morris.


Birmingham Bears

Birmingham has won its previous two matches and now has three wins in five completed matches. Birmingham has not been too good in its batting. Sam hain is the only batsman that has more than 100 runs in total so far.

He is also the only one with a fifty in this edition of the T20 Blast so far.

The return of Dom Sibley may be a positive although he did not seem like a player meant for T20 cricket at all! Adam Hose, Ed Pollock, and Will Rhodes form a decent lineup but not one that is firing right now.

The bowling attack for the Birmingham Bears is pretty impressive. They are going to have the experience of Tim Bresnan and Jeetan Patel to go with the genuine pace of Ollie Stone. Jacob Lintott picked up three wickets for eleven runs in his previous match and should help round out the Bears attack very nicely.

It appears as if it is going to be the Birmingham Bears bowling versus the Worcestershire Rapids batting.

WOR vs WRW Toss Prediction

The team that wins the toss is going to want to bat first. The pitch is not going to take place and winning the toss is not a huge advantage.

Read our guide on toss predictions to learn how we analyze and come up with our tips.

Pitch and Conditions

There is absolutely no rain forecast for match day and so we should have no trouble getting a full contest. The pitch at Worcester is very good for batting and scores of around 200 are on the cards. We think that is the minimum that teams batting first are going to be aiming for.

WOR vs WRW Betting Tips

Worcestershire is a dangerous side but its batting has not been firing so far. The fact that three of its top-4 batsmen got into the runs is a very positive sign. We think it has a stronger batting lineup that should be able to make the most of home conditions.

Bet on Worcestershire to win.
