Worcestershire vs Northamptonshire

Worcestershire Team News & Playing 11

Worcestershire had a really off day with the bat in the last game against Leicestershire where they got bowled out for 119 in their pursuit of 153. The team will want its stalwarts Martin Guptill, Riki Wessels, Callum Ferguson and Ben Cox to come good with the bat against Northamptonshire. Riki Wessels has scored the most runs for Worcestershire this season - 208 runs - and has two big scores of 74 and 91 in his last four outings. Guptill is having a strike-rate of over 150 and he will look to take the team off to a good start.

Wayne Parnell and Patrick Brown are the main threats in Worcestershire's bowling attack. Both have taken nine wickets apiece in the tournament and took six wickets between them last time. These two fast bowlers will be backed by their skipper to provide the early breakthroughs. Ed Barnard, who returned 2-22 in the last match, along with Daryl Mitchell are two other bowlers in the side capable of troubling the opposition with their pace.

Northamptonshire Team News & Playing 11

Northamptonshire will bank on their big guns in Richard Levi, Joshua Cobb and Alex Wakely to deliver the goods with the bat in this match. Joshua Cobb is the only batsman in the side who has hit a half-century this season and the skipper will be expected to lead from the front on Sunday. Alex Wakely, with 133 runs at an average of 33.25, has been the team's next best batsman and he recently struck an unbeaten 47 against Durham.

In terms of bowling, Northamptonshire will rely mainly on Ben Sanderson, Faheem Ashraf and Rob Keogh to do the job for them. Sanderson and Ashraf took two wickets each against Durham and the pace duo could cause a few problems for Worcestershire in the powerplay. Rob Keogh notched up three wickets in that game and the off-spinner will again be expected to pick up wickets in the middle overs.

Worcestershire vs Northamptonshire Prediction

Worcestershire certainly have the upper hand when it comes to head-to-head record between these two teams. They have beaten Northamptonshire on seven occasions in the previous eleven encounters. Worcestershire also have the advantage of playing at their home ground where they have a very strong T20 record; they have won seven of their last ten completed matches here and have beaten Northamptonshire at this ground five times in their previous eight completed meetings. Northamptonshire have lacked consistency this season and most of their players seem to be out of form which is why we feel it won't be easy for them to beat Worcestershire.

Final Verdict: Back Worcestershire to beat Northamptonshire.
