Worcestershire vs Essex

Worcestershire Team News & Playing 11

Worcestershire's batting is going to depend primarily on their big guns in Riki Wessels, Moeen Ali and Ben Cox. Wessels is the team's leading run-scorer this T20 Blast 2019 season having scored 396 runs which includes three half-centuries. The opening batsman scored 47 in the quarter-final against Sussex. Moeen Ali cracked an unbeaten 121 off just 60 balls in that game and the skipper will be expected to deliver a similar performance in this big game.

Patrick Brown, Ed Barnard and Daryl Mitchell are the main weapons in Worcestershire's bowling arsenal. Patrick Brown has taken the most wickets for the team this season - 14 in 12 matches at an economy of 8.48 - and the pacer will be the biggest hope with the ball for Worcestershire. Ed Barnard was the pick of the bowlers in the quarter-final against Sussex with figures of 2-21 from four overs and he could trouble Essex's batsmen with his pace.

Essex Team News & Playing 11

Essex Eagles will be counting on their heavyweights in Tom Westley, Cameron Delport and Daniel Lawrence to build a strong platform when it comes to batting. Lawrence has scored the most runs for the team this T20 Blast season - 360 runs at an average of 40 and a strike-rate of 156.52. Delport has a century and a couple of fifties to his name and he scored 44 in the quarter-final against Lancashire. The team's middle-order batting, however, will depend mainly on Ryan ten Doeschate.

In terms of bowling, Essex have a few good wicket-taking options in Adam Zampa, Ravi Bopara and Aaron Beard. Zampa has been the most impressive of the pack this year with 12 wickets in as many matches at an economy of 8.06. The Australian leggie will pose the biggest threat to the Nottinghamshire batting line-up. Aaron Beard will be leading Essex's pace attack and the onus will be on him to pick wickets in the powerplay.

Worcestershire vs Essex Team Form in Last Five Matches



WORCS vs ESS Head to Head

Worcestershire Rapids and Essex Eagles have never faced each other before in the English domestic twenty20 tournaments. This will be the first time ever in the history of the tournament that these two counties will be going head-to-head.

Worcestershire vs Essex Prediction

Both the teams have played really well to reach the final of the Vitality Blast 2019. Neither will have the home advantage as they will be playing on a neutral venue. Essex Eagles are carrying plenty of momentum with them having won four and tied one of their last five encounters. Though their batting has looked alright this season, it is their bowling that has let them down on a few occasions and there seems to be an over dependence on Adam Zampa and Ravi Bopara to pick wickets and keep the batsmen tied up. Worcestershire, on the other hand, are a better balanced outfit with quite a few match-winners in captain Moeen Ali, Riki Wessels and Patrick Brown. They are the reigning champions and we expect them to defend their title.

Final Verdict: Back Worcestershire Rapids to beat Essex Eagles in the T20 Blast 2019 final.
