Who will winWho will win Vitality Blast 2021

We have picked out Notts Outlaws, Lancashire Lightning and Surrey as the stand out teams at this stage.

Notts Outlaws will be defending their Vitality T20 Blast 2020 title and are one of the favourites for this year’s tournament. Jake Ball, who was the leading wicket-taker in the 2020 tournament, may miss a lot of this campaign through injury however the Outlaws still have stars like Alex Hales and Dan Christian to call upon. They can be backed at 7.00 with Bet365 and 6.50 with Betway.

Lancashire Lightning reached the semi-final stage last year but were beaten by winners Notts Outlaws in an 11 overs per side game due to rain. They will be a strong contender this year with New Zealand’s Finn Allen a new recruit to the side. He will be alongside England stars Jos Buttler, Liam Livingstone and Matt Parkinson. Lightning can be backed at 9.00 with Bet365 and 9.00 with Betway.

Last year’s losing finalist Surrey will be keen to go one better in 2021. Australian all-rounder Sean Abbott is an excellent addition to a strong squad which includes Jason Roy, Tom Curran and Liam Plunkett. Surrey can be backed at 7.50 with Bet365 and 7.50 with Betway.

Vitality T20 Blast 2021 Playoff Prediction

Notts Outlaws are favourites to win the T20 Blast for a second successive season and we are predicting Lancashire Lightning, Yorkshire Vikings and Birmingham Bears to join them in the knockout stage from the North Group. With the season being spread from early June to mid-September, injuries, international call-ups and quarantine could well be an issue for all these sides. We are predicting Notts Outlaws and Lancashire Lightning to qualify for Finals Day.

In the South Group, we are predicting Surrey, Somerset, Sussex Sharks and Essex Eagles to finish in the top 4. All of them will have international call-ups during the campaign to contend with. However, Sussex may benefit from Jofra Archer being eased back into games with short bowling spells in the Blast. We are predicting Surrey and Somerset to qualify for Finals Day.

Who will Win Vitality T20 Blast 2021

We often see teams having successful periods of a few years in the T20 Blast. Notts qualified for the quarter finals in 2018, Finals Day in 2019 and won in 2020. We are predicting them to have another successful T20 Blast campaign in 2021.

In the batting department they have internationals Ben Duckett and Alex Hales at the top of the order with Joe Clarke coming in at number 3. They are also well stocked with all-rounders in Samit Patel, Peter Trego and skipper Dan Christian. Bowling wise, they may have to deal without 2020 leading wicket-taker Jake Ball but Matthew Carter, Imad Wasim and Luke Fletcher are excellent specialists in this department.

Led by coach Peter Moores, Notts Outlaws have been a strong T20 side for many years and this year are also in excellent form in the County Championship. We are backing Notts Outlaws to be victorious at Edgbaston on September 18.

Vitality T20 Blast 2021 Final Prediction

Back Nottinghamshire Outlaws to win T20 Blast at the odds of 7.00 with Bet365 and 6.50 with Betway.

About Vitality T20 Blast

English county cricket’s T20 Blast returns for an 19th year in a different format for a very different season.

Nottinghamshire go into the tournament as defending champions after beating Surrey in last season’s final.

The Nottinghamshire will be looking to create history – none of the tournament’s previous winners have ever defended their title.

Since 2014, it has been two groups of nine, but the shortened season means the counties will stay in the same geographical groups being used for the first-class Bob Willis Trophy.

First contested in 2003, the tournament will be played in the format of two geographical groups of nine teams for this year’s edition.

Derbyshire Falcons, Durham, Lancashire Lightning, Leicestershire Foxes, Nottinghamshire Outlaws and Yorkshire Vikings make up the northern group.

Of those, Nottinghamshire won the title in 2017 and 2020, Lancashire in 2015 and Leicestershire in 2004, 2006 and 2011. The Outlaws and Derbyshire Falcons were beaten in last season’s semi-finals.

In the central group, Birmingham Bears, Glamorgan, Gloucestershire, Northamptonshire Steelbacks, Somerset and Worcestershire Rapids go head-to-head.

Birmingham Bears won the tournament, in 2014, Northants won in 2013 and 2016 and Worcestershire – beaten in last year’s final – were crowned champions in 2018.
