Worcestershire vs Northamptonshire T20 Blast 2022 Match Prediction & Betting Tips

Worcestershire WORCS
Northamptonshire NHNTS
Betting Tips
  • Opener Brett D’Oliveira has scored two half-centuries for the Rapids in this campaign and he is well worth backing as their highest run scorer in this game. With the ball, Dwayne Bravo went wicketless on Friday evening but he is our pick for Worcestershire Rapids’ top wicket taker against Northamptonshire Steelbacks.
  • Captain Josh Cobb struck 57 runs from 32 balls in the win over Lancashire Lightning and he is our tip for Northamptonshire Steelbacks’ highest run scorer against Worcestershire Rapids. Ben Sanderson took 2-28 on Friday evening and we expect him to be Northamptonshire Steelbacks’ top wicket taker in this fixture.
  • With 11 sixes in the tournament and four of them coming on Friday, Josh Cobb is not afraid of going for the big shots. He is our prediction for the Player to Hit The Most Sixes in Saturday’s clash.

WOR vs NOR Match Prediction & Betting Tips, T20 Blast 2022

Worcestershire Rapids and Northamptonshire Steelbacks go head to head on Saturday afternoon in the 2022 Vitality Blast. The Rapids are bottom of the North Group with only one win from nine matches. The Steelbacks have won six  and are level on points with top of the table Lancashire Lightning. Read on as we preview this North Group game. The match begins at New Road, Worcester at 14:30 local time.

Worcestershire Rapids have had a torrid 2022 Vitality Blast and were well beaten by Leicestershire Foxes in their last game. They have no chance of reaching the knockout stage and are only playing for pride.

Northamptonshire Steelbacks thrashed North Group leaders Lancashire Lightning by 7 wickets with 22 balls remaining on Friday. The win was all the more impressive as it was done without tournament leading run scorer Chris Lynn.

Worcestershire Team News & Playing 11

WOR Team News

The Rapids were without captain Moeen Ali for Friday’s trip to Leicester with the England all-rounder on international duty in the Netherlands. Colin Munro took over the captaincy with Mitchell Stanley making his debut for the county in the game. Ali is unavailable for this match and we expect Munro to continue to lead.

WOR Key Players

  • Colin Munro- the New Zealander began this campaign with two half-centuries against Notts Outlaws and Lancashire Lightning. However, the runs have since dried up and his side massively need a score from him in this game.
  • Brett D’Oliveira- the club captain who leads the side in the County Championship has scored 274 runs at an average of 30.44 in the T20 Blast this season.
  • Dwayne Bravo- the former West Indian bowling all-rounder has taken 6 wickets so far in the competition. Friday’s game against Leicestershire Foxes was the first in which he has not dismissed a batter.

WOR Team Form

Worcestershire Rapids have lost their last four games in the competition and were nowhere near being competitive against Leicestershire Foxes on Friday evening.

Worcestershire Predicted Playing 11

Ed Pollock, Brett D’Oliveira, Colin Munro (c), Jack Haynes, Ed Barnard, Kashif Ali, Gareth Roderick (wk), Dwayne Bravo, Josh Baker, Mitchell Stanley, Patrick Brown

NOR Team News

Chris Lynn failed a late fitness test on his groin ahead of the victory over Lancashire Lightning on Friday evening. With less than 24 hours between Friday’s and this match, we doubt Lynn will be available for the trip to Worcester. Emiliano Gay deputised for Lynn and struck an impressive 30 runs from 19 balls 

NOR Key Players

  • Josh Cobb- the captain has hit three half-centuries for the Steelbacks so far this season. He was in aggressive form on Friday and hit the Lancashire bowlers for nine boundaries.
  • Ben Curran- the opener made his second fifty of the campaign on Friday evening. He scored 50 from 41 balls and hit six fours during the knock.
  • Ben Sanderson- the pace bowler began this tournament in excellent form but had gone off the boil a little in recent matches. However, he dismissed Danny Lamb and Luke Wells against Lancashire and looked back to his best.

NOR Team Form

Northamptonshire Steelbacks have won four successive T20 Blast games and produced a very convincing win over Lancashire Lightning in their last match.

Northamptonshire Predicted Playing 11

Who will win WOR vs NOR T20 Blast Match?

Chris Lynn is the leading run scorer in the tournament and his big hitting will be missed at the top of the Steebacks’ order. However, they showed on Friday that they have plenty of other good batters in their side.
