WRW vs WOR Match Prediction & Analysis

The Central Group is pretty tightly packed behind Gloucestershire. Four points separate the entire remaining field. The Birmingham Bears are a part of this trailing pack with an eye on the second place which would guarantee it a place in the T20 Blast 2020 Finals Day.

The Bears are separated from second-placed Northamptonshire by just net run-rate and so a win here is very important for them.

Worcestershire, the other team in this contest has a lot more work to do. It is dead last and does not have any chance of finishing second but a complex set of results could see it finish third.

Birmingham Bears vs Worcestershire T20 Blast 2020 is going to be played at Edgbaston, Birmingham on the 18th of September 2020.

Team Previews

Birmingham Bears

Four wins and three losses in seven completed matches are an accurate depiction of the kind of form the Bears have been in. Their batting has been quite inconsistent with Sam Hain being the best player by far. He is the only player in the entire side to have an individual fifty (has two) and the only one to have more than 150 runs total (he has 222).

This is not the kind of batting that will make it a title contender.

Worcestershire may be struggling but it has a decent batting lineup and so the Bears will need to be at their best.

Sam Hain will need support from the likes of Adam Hose, Dominic Sibley, and Will Rhodes.

The bowling attack for Birmingham is very good. We like the experience that Tim Bresnan and Jeetan Patel bring to the table while Olly Stone and Jacob Lintott add that bit of ‘X’ factor. This is an area where the Birmingham Bears have a clear advantage.

Worcestershire

We don’t doubt for a second that Worcestershire has a stronger batting lineup that the Birmingham Bears on paper. Jake Libby and Hamish Rutherford both have over 200 runs each and three different batsmen have scores at least one individual fifty in the T20 Blast so far.

The trick is going to be getting these teams to perform together in this crucial match.

Worcestershire has no option but to go hard and try to win every one of its remaining matches by a huge margin. That can free up the players but also force them into making mistakes.

Ben Cox and Ross Whiteley also need to step up and provide the power game that they are renowned for.

Patrick Brown, Dillon Pennington, and Charlie Morris are going to lead a decent bowling attack. This is an attack that could take advantage of the batting problems that the Bears are going through.

We definitely think that Worcestershire has the pieces needed to win this match. It is just a matter of the players believing in themselves and going out to perform.

WRW vs WOR Toss Prediction

The team that wins the toss is gong to want to bat second.

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

Pitch and Conditions

There is no rain forecast in Edgbaston on match day. The pitch is going to be good for batting but the big boundaries give the bowlers a fair chance as well. A good contest between the bat and the ball can be expected.

We think a score of around 170 can be seen as par batting first.

WRW vs WOR Betting Tips

We are going to go with Worcestershire in this match. They won their previous match and seem to have the better-balanced team on paper. The Birmingham Bears have a strong bowling attack but that is not going to bail them out every single time.

Bet on Worcestershire to win.
