Worcestershire Rapids vs Northamptonshire, Vitality T20 Blast

After both being frustrated by the rain on the first day of the tournament, two former winners will try again to get their 2020 Vitality T20 Blast campaigns underway. Worcestershire Rapids and Northamptonshire Steelbacks meet in the Central Group on August 29, at Blackfinch New Road, and the live action starts at 13:00 local time.

Worcestershire Rapids were winners in 2018 and runners-up last year, have a strong squad available again. Hamish Rutherford’s availability is a big boot, while Riki Wessels, Ross Whiteley and captain Ed Barnard provide further quality. Pat Brown and Moeen Ali are away, but this is a strong Worcestershire side nevertheless.

Fort Northamptonshire, they have made a smart signing in Paul Stirling at the top of the order and he will be key. The question is how deep he can go and how his team-mates will perform around him, however.

Worcestershire Predicted Playing 11

Ed Barnard (c), Rikki Wessels, Hamish Rutherford, Daryl Mitchell, Ross Whiteley, Ben Cox (wk), Brett D'Oliveira, Josh Tongue, Dillon Pennington, Adam Finch, Charlie Morris

Northamptonshire Predicted Playing 11

Josh Cobb (c), Ricardo Vasconcelos (wk), Adam Rossington, Alex Wakely, Paul Stirling, Graeme White, Richard Levi, Nathan Buck, Blessing Muzarabani, Nathan Buck, Tom Sole, Ben Sanderson

Worcestershire vs Northamptonshire Prediction

Paul Stirling could prove one of the top ‘overseas’ acquisitions for this tournament given his previous record in T20 cricket. However, the Rapids have been in good form these past two years and this looks a good opportunity to restate their dominance.

Final Verdict

Back Worcestershire Rapids to beat Northamptonshire Steelbacks at odds of 1.61 with 1xbet and betway
