Who Will Win Warwickshire vs Worcestershire, Vitality Blast 2019?

Warwickshire (Birmingham Bears) and Worcestershire Rapids will look to extend their winning momentum when they take on each other in this North Group fixture of the Vitality Blast 2019. The match will be played on August 23 at the Edgbaston in Birmingham. Live telecast is scheduled to begin at 7 PM local time.

Worcestershire are coming on the back of a three-run win in what was an absolute thriller against the Durham Jets last week. Put into bat first, they could manage only 117 off their 20 overs. The game seemed to be getting away from them quickly with Durham being 79 for none at one stage. But Ed Barnard's initial breakthrough triggered a collapse and Worcestershire ended up snatching victory from the jaws of defeat as Durham finished at 114-6. Warwickshire, on the other hand, had to share points with Lancashire Lightning in their last match which got abandoned due to rain.

The pitch at the Edgbaston has been very good for batting in the recent past with 150+ being scored four times in the last three matches. Warwickshire and Lancashire both went past 160 in the last game at this ground which also saw ample assistance for the spinners.

WARKS vs WORCS Toss Prediction

The Edgbaston has hosted four matches so far in this year's Vitality T20 Blast and the toss-winning team has elected to bowl on three occasions. Since the pitch will probably remain the same throughout the duration of the game, the team that wins the toss here is likely to continue the trend of bowling first.

WARKS vs WORCS Prediction

Warwickshire Team News & Playing 11

WARKS Team News

West Indian fast bowler Fidel Edwards' stint with Warwickshire this season has come to an end and he was replaced by batsman Matthew Lamb in the last match against Lancashire Lightning. Lamb had a pretty good outing in that game and he is likely to keep his place in the side. Sam Hain, who was promoted from number three to the opening position last time, is likely to open the innings again alongside Dominic Sibley which means Michael Burgess could again find himself batting in the middle order. Warwickshire don't have any injury concerns at the moment and we expect them to retain their winning combination from last time.

WARKS Key Players

Sam Hain: With 336 runs at an average of 42, Sam Hain is one of the tournament's top five batsmen in this year's Vitality Blast. The opener has cracked a couple of half-centuries and has not scored less than 21 runs in any game this season.

Henry Brookes: The pacer has been the most successful bowler for Birmingham Bears this year with 12 wickets in 8 matches at an economy of 8.37. He finished as the pick of the bowlers for his team last time against Lancashire with figures of 2-32 from four overs.

Adam Hose: At number three, he is another key batsman for Warwickshire. Hose has made decent contributions with the bat this season, scoring 228 runs and having a strike-rate of 148.05. He smashed 65 off 34 balls in the last match against Lancashire.

WARKS Recent Form

Warwickshire (Birmingham Bears) currently find themselves in an uncomfortable position. They have played ten matches so far this season out of which they have won three and lost four. One of those encounters resulted in a tie while two were washed out including their previous outing last week against Lancashire Lightning. After sharing points with a tie against Yorkshire Vikings, Warwickshire suffered big defeats in their next two fixtures - against Leicestershire by 55 runs and against Nottinghamshire by 28 runs (D/L method) - before securing a 15-run victory against Lancashire.

Worcestershire Team News & Playing 11

WORCS Team News

Worcestershire made just the one change to their side in the last match against Durham as they dropped fast bowler Joe Leach and replaced him with batsman Thomas Charles Fell. The county will miss the services of their skipper Callum Ferguson who has flown back home to Australia due to personal reasons. New Zealand batsman Hamish Rutherford has replaced Ferguson in the squad and he is likely to be slotted in at number three with Martin Guptill and Riki Wessels taking up the opening positions. Worcestershire will probably bring in all-rounder Brett D'Oliveira to captain the team for the remainder of the Vitality Blast 2019 season.

WORCS Key Players

Martin Guptill: The New Zealand opening batsman is the leading run-getter for Worcestershire in this 2019 edition of the T20 Blast with 232 runs at an average of 33.14. Guptill struck an unbeaten 86 last month against Durham and scored 45 last week against Derbyshire.

Riki Wessels: Guptill's opening partner Riki Wessels has also been amongst the runs this season - 225 runs in 8 matches and is having an impressive strike-rate of 155.17. He has hit a couple of fifties so far - 74 versus Durham at Worcester and 91 versus Yorkshire at Leeds - and is coming off an unbeaten 84 against Northamptonshire at the Specsavers County Championship.

Patrick Brown: He has been the most impressive performer with the ball for Worcestershire this year. The fast bowler has taken 12 wickets in 8 matches at a pretty decent economy of 7.80. Patrick has picked five wickets in his previous three outings including a couple of scalps last time out.

WORCS Recent Form

Worcestershire are comfortably positioned on the second spot in the North Group standings with five wins, three losses and a couple of washouts from ten league matches. They made an excellent start to their campaign this year, winning four of their first five completed fixtures. But they lost all their momentum thereafter with back-to-back defeats in their next two completed matches - against Leicestershire Foxes by 33 runs and against Derbyshire Falcons by 20 runs. Worcestershire, however, have bounced back in the tournament with a narrow three-run win over Durham Jets in their last match.

Warwickshire vs Worcestershire Betting Odds

Worcestershire are favorites to win this North Group match of the Vitality Blast 2019 at 1.61 with Betway, 1.72 with Bet365 and 1.64 with 10CRIC. Warwickshire (Birmingham Bears) are the underdogs amongst the bookmakers for this game and they have been priced at 2.20 on Betway, 2.10 on Bet365 and 2.05 on 10CRIC.

Warwickshire vs Worcestershire Prediction

Warwickshire (Birmingham Bears) and Worcestershire Rapids have had contrasting T20 Blast season so far. While the former are under enormous pressure as they now have to win almost all of their remaining fixtures, the latter find themselves in a fairly comfortable position being just one place below league leaders Lancashire on the points table. Warwickshire, however, will have the advantage of playing at their home ground where they have won three out of their four T20 matches this year. But they will be wary of their dismal recent record against Worcestershire who have beaten them five times in their last six completed meetings. The Rapids have looked the better side this season and we feel they have a better chance of winning this match.

Final Verdict

Worcestershire to beat Warwickshire at 1.61 with Betway, 1.72 with Bet365 and 1.64 with 10CRIC.

WARKS vs WORCS Dream11 Prediction

Our Dream11 team for this match consists of six players from Worcestershire and five from Warwickshire.


We have picked Warwickshire's Michael Burgess instead of Worcestershire's Ben Cox as the wicketkeeper in our Dream11 team. Burgess recently smashed a fifty against Somerset at the Specsavers County Championship and he is available at 8.5 credits.


We have picked Worcestershire's openers Martin Guptill and Riki Wessels under the batsmen category. Both are quality batsmen and are capable of producing the big knocks. While Guptill is available at 10.5 credits, Wessels who has hit a couple of fifties can be picked at 9 credits. We have also included Warwickshire's Sam Hain and Adam Hose at 10 and 9 credits respectively.


Our Dream11 team has two all-rounders and both belong to Worcestershire - Daryl Mitchell and Brett D'Oliveira. Both are major threats with the ball and can earn points by picking up wickets. Additionally, they are handy batters and can make some runs down the order as well. Daryl Mitchell is available for 9 credits while Brett D'Oliveira is available for 8.5.


Our team consists of two bowlers from Worcestershire - Ed Barnard and Patrick Brown - and two from Warwickshire - Henry Brookes and Jeetan Patel. Patrick has been impressive this season with 12 wickets in 8 matches and is worth picking at 8.5 credits. Ed Barnard and Henry Brookes are both available at 8 credits while Jeetan Patel can be picked at 9.


Martin Guptill is the captain of our Dream11 team.


We have picked Sam Hain as the vice-captain of our team.
