English weather has been the big talk with it ruining many WTC final and Vitality Blast matches. The fans will expect the weather conditions to get better and allow the cricketing action to return to the field. Durham has been on a roll this season and only behind the table-toppers in terms of NRR. Their opponents Northamptonshire are going through a nightmare with 6-match win-less streak. Durham will look to add on Northamptonshire`s agony while they will look to get their maiden win this season.

Durham Preview

Durham`s innings started with an early wicket of in-form David Bedingham. But returning all-rounder Ben Stokes (29 runs) and Graham Clark (25 runs) rebuild with a vital 44-run partnership. Skipper Cameron Bancroft then shifted the gears with his brilliant 76 runs with some late order burst from Sean Dickson (30 runs) to take their team to 185/4 in 20 overs.

Their bowling unit kept chipping with wickets and never allowed any big partnership as they restricted the opposition to 163 runs to win by 22 runs. Brydon Carse and Scott Borthwick picked up 3 & 2 wickets respectively. Liam Trevaskis and Ben Stokes chipped with a wicket each.

Top Players to bet on:

Ben Stokes – Stokes returned to competitive cricket after an injury lay-off. He had all-round showing scoring 29 runs off 16 balls and then coming back to bowl a splendid spell of 4-0-20-1 in the game.  

Cameron Bancroft – Bancroft scored 76 runs off 53 balls with 7 boundaries to his name in the last game. He will look to continue his good form with the bat in this match too and help his team make a big score.  

Durham Predicted Playing XI:

David Bedingham, Graham Clark, Ben Stokes, Cameron Bancroft (c), Ned Eckersley (wk), Sean Dickson, Brydon Carse, Ben Raine, Liam Trevaskis, Scott Borthwick, Matty Potts

Northamptonshire Preview

Northamptonshire stumbled upon to yet another defeat as they failed to chase a massive 201 runs in the last game. They were reduced to 69/5 in the 10-over mark. Richard Levi (32 runs) and Mohammed Nabi (30 runs) put on fight before Rob Keogh scored a spirited innings of 50 runs in the lower order but they eventually fell short by 34 runs.

Their bowling unit were taken to the cleaners as they gave away 200 runs in the 20 overs. Mohammed Nabi and Wayne Parnell bowled economically giving runs at just 7 RPO. Tom Taylor and Graeme White picked up a wicket each but they were not able to stop the run flow.

Top Players to bet on:

Rob Keogh – Keogh smashed 50 runs off 29 balls with 6 boundaries and a six in the last game. He came in 69/5 and helped his team reach 166 runs but the target was almost unreachable. He will be highly confident after this fifty.

Mohamed Nabi – Nabi made an all-round effort with 32 runs with the bat and an economical spell of 4-0-26-0 in a high scoring contest. He provides excellent depth and balance to the side.

Northamptonshire Predicted Playing XI:

Richard Levi, Adam Rossington (c & wk), Ricardo Vasconcelos, Mohammad Nabi, Wayne Parnell, Saif Zaib, Rob Keogh, Tom Taylor, Graeme White, Nathan Buck, Ben Sanderson

Weather Conditions

Chester-le-street weather looks slightly better from the last week with just 20-30% chances of rain. We expect the rain to stay away for the major part of the match with slight intermittent appearances.

Venue Details

Riverside Ground has a good balance between the bat and ball with something in it for both. The new ball might swing and seam around with overcast conditions especially. We expect the scores to be around 160-180 runs in this match.

Toss: To Bat

Teams batting first have 3-1 win-loss ratio at this venue and any score above 170 runs will be tough to chase here. We expect both captains to bat first if they win the toss in this match.

Durham has been exceptional this season and they have performed superbly both with the bat and ball. The return of star all-rounder Ben stokes will be massive boost of their team. Northamptonshire are struggling to find momentum and are looking to end their win-less drought. Their bowling unit lacks the X-factor while their top order has been very inconsistent to add their woes. We expect Durham to win this match in their home conditions.

Durham will win the match and top the table
