Who will win Sussex vs Worcestershire 3rd QF, Vitality Blast 2019?

Defending champions Worcestershire Rapids, who finished fourth in this year’s North Group, take on the team they beat in last year’s final – South Group winners Sussex Sharks – in a last-eight match at Hove. The quarter-final will take place on September 6 and the live action is scheduled to begin at 19:00 local time.

Sussex Sharks were one of the stand-out teams in the group stage, winning eight of their 12 completed fixtures in the South Group. Laurie Evans, Luke Wright and Philip Salt were all in the runs as the Sharks stormed to the top of the table.

The Rapids, meanwhile, were hit and miss but would still have finished second had they won their final game. Moeen Ali’s availability has been a big boost, with the England international scoring 191 runs in four innings and taking seven wickets.

SUS vs WORCS Toss Prediction

Sussex have not won the toss in any of their last three matches so they are overdue one. After being asked to set a target last time out, and falling just short of defending it, the Sharks may elect to bowl first this time.

SUS vs WORCS Weather Report

Hove is set to be cloudy on Friday evening, which will play into the hands of the bowlers. The chance of rain is around 25 per cent and there will also be a bit of wind around with temperatures around 16 degrees Celsius.

SUS vs WORCS Pitch Condition

Hove was a good batting wicket for the Kia Super League finals day but overhead conditions for this quarter-final could swing the balance back towards the bowlers.

Sussex Team News & Playing 11

SUS Team News

Sussex will only have Alex Carey as an overseas option for this quarter-final, with Jason Behrendorff having returned home for treatment on a recurrence of his back injury. Rashid Khan’s stint with the county has already ended. Also unavailable are injured Tymal Mills and England paceman Jofra Archer. With the exception of Carey’s return for Ben Brown, it could be an unchanged team from the final group game.

SUS Key Players

Laurie Evans: Hit a half-century in last year’s final against Worcestershire Rapids and the big-hitting batsman has hit two more this season on his way to 315 runs.

Alex Carey: The Australian’s arrival bolstered an already strong batting unit. In seven innings, he has hit 256 runs – including two half-centuries – at a strike rate of more than 150.

Luke Wright: Now a specialist batsman, the former England all-rounder and Sussex captain leads their batting charts this season with 360 runs from 11 innings.

SUS Team Form

The Sharks were in excellent form in the group stage, winning eight of their 12 completed Vitality Blast games and tying another. They beat Middlesex by eight wickets, chasing 172, thanks to Laurie Evans 25-ball 52* before a seven-wicket win at Glamorgan as Alex Carey hit 61 in a score of 176/3 from 16.5 overs

They did end with a defeat, however, despite Delray Rawlins scoring 69 in a total of 163/8 at home to Gloucestershire. Rawlins then took 2-19 from four overs in the reply, but Reece Topley’s final ball was hit for six as the visitors claimed a dramatic three-wicket win.

Worcestershire Team News & Playing 11

WORCS Team News

Martin Guptill’s New Zealand call-up has turned into a double blow for the Worcestershire Rapids after he suffered an injury while with the Black Caps. His replacement, Hamish Rutherford, is therefore also unavailable for the Rapids having flown out to Sri Lanka. It leaves the Rapids without an overseas player, as Callum Ferguson has already had to cut short his time with Worcestershire. Kolpak signing Wayne Parnell could return, however, after missing the final group game.

WORCS Key Players

Moeen Ali: His England omission has been the Rapids’ gain, with the all-rounder back to captain his county. Ali has scored two half-centuries on his way to 191 runs in four innings and also weighed in with seven wickets so far.

Riki Wessels: Scored 45 in the final group game against Northants, moving to 349 runs from 11 innings in total, including three half-centuries.

Pat Brown: The 21-year-old leads Worcestershire’s wicket-taking charts again in this year’s T20 with 14 from 11 games. He has 46 wickets in 33 T20 matches in total in his career.

WORCS Team Form

A rained-off home match against Notts Outlaws, in between a 25-run defeat to Lancashire Lightning and a seven-wicket loss to Northants Steelbacks.

Moeen Ali scored 51 and Ben Cox (44*) and Riki Wessels (45) also scored well as the Rapids posted 188/5 last time out, but Northants made light work of the chase on their way to a seven-wicket win.

SUS vs WORCS Dream11 Prediction


Alex Carey and Ben Cox are the two wicket-keeping options worth looking at, with Ben Brown not expected to feature for Sussex and not in form anyway. Carey is 9.5 credits, while Cox is 8.5 but both are key batting figures.


Be careful to avoid the unavailable players – Martin Guptill, Hamish Rutherford, Callum Ferguson will all play no part in this fixture. Sussex’s top batsman are available though – Luke Wright, Phil Salt and Laurie Evans are all worth selecting despite their cost, as is Worcestershire’s Riki Wessels. To balance things a little, Delray Rawlins can be picked up for just eight credits – he batted and bowled well last time out.


The all-rounder choice is really between Moeen Ali and two South African Kolpak players – Worcestershire’s Wayne Parnell and Sussex’s David Wiese. Both South Africans are the same price, but Ali’s performances so far fully justify the extra 0.5 credits he costs.


There will be no Jofra Archer, no Rashid Khan, no Tymal Mills and no Jason Behrendorff in this match. Pat Brown is the Rapids’ leading wicket-taker and well worth picking up at 8.5 credits, while Reece Topley is a key figure for the Sharks. That leaves one space with Worcestershire’s Ed Barnard the highest scoring so far of those. Chris Jordan’s batting ability makes him worth a look, however, and Will Beer has scored his points in much fewer games. Any of those three would complement a strong team.


Moeen Ali is a key player with bat and ball for the Rapids and fully merits being picked as captain given the likelihood of runs and wickets from England’s World Cup winner. For vice-captain, Pat Brown and Reece Topley will deliver wickets, while Wessels and Sussex’s top three will all score runs. Luke Wright has done the latter consistently and could be worth picking, but Alex Carey’s return will be key too and he has scored his runs from fewer games so far.
