Teams Preview

Durham Preview

Openers David Bedingam and Graham Clark has scored the bulk of runs for the team at an impressive strike rate of 160+. Their middle order is hugely untested with Cameron Bancroft, Ned Eckersly, Paul Coughlin, and Brydon Caryse making some vital cameos and no big runs till date this season. Ben Raine is struggling with the bat at No.3.

Matty Potts and Ben Raine has been their chief wicket-takers with 9 & 7 wickets respectively. Lewis Trevaskis has chipped with 3 wickets and 56 runs for the team with the ball and bat at crunch situations. Paul Coughlin and Brydon Carse are giving runs at an economy rate in excess of 9 RPO and will need to get their act right going ahead.

Top Players to bet on:

David Bedingam – Bedingham lead the team`s run charts with 172 runs at a strike rate of 160 with 2 fifties to his name. We expect him to make a yet another big score in the coming match too.  

Ben Raine – Raine has 7 wickets at an economy rate of just 6.2 RPO so far. He has been struggling with the bat scoring just 25 runs in 4 innings. But he is a quality player and we expect him to make a brilliant comeback with both bat and ball in this match.

Durham Predicted Playing XI:

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

Durham Actual Playing XI:

Brydon Carse, Scott Borthwick, Ben Stokes, Cameron Bancroft, Ned Eckersley, Matty Pots, Ben Raine, Graham Clark, Liam Trevaskis, David Bedingham, Sean Dickson

Warwickshire Preview

Sam Hain has been Warwickshire`s batting fulcrum with 251 runs in the five innings he batted so far. Will Rhodes scored a superb 79 runs in the last game. Openers Ed Pollock and Pieter Malan has one fifty each so far but are struggling for consistently his season. Carlos Brathwaite and Dan Mousely have contributed with some quick fore lower order runs.   

Danny Briggs and Tim Bresnan opened the bowling attack and claimed 3 wickets each to never allow momentum to opposition in the chase. Carlos Brathwaite, Jacob Linett, and Craig Miles contributed with crucial overs at an economy rate of below 7 RPO and claimed 3 wickets between them.

Top Players to bet on:

Sam Hain – Sam Hain has 3 fifties and a 45-run knock in the five innings at a strike rate of 150+. He has been their most consistent batsmen this season with 251 runs and will look to continue his purple patch going ahead.

Carlos Brathwaite – Brathwaite has 9 wickets at an economy rate of 7.25 RPO so far. He is this highest wicket-taker and he will also contribute with some massive hits in the lower order. He can be a match winner with both ball and bat.

Warwickshire Predicted Playing XI:

Ed Pollock, Pieter Malan, Will Rhodes (c), Sam Hain, Carlos Brathwaite, Dan Mousley, Michael Burgess (wk), Tim Bresnan, Danny Briggs, Jacob Lintott, Craig Miles

Weather Conditions

Chester-le-street weather does not look promising for the match day with 70% chances of rain. Weather has been harsh with 7 out of the 9 T20 Blast matches being abandoned without toss.

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 2-1 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.

DUR vs WARKS Winning Prediction

Warwickshire batting has been hugely played around Sam Hain but their remaining top-4 players have scored 50+ scores so far. But Durham relies heavily on their openers and their middle order is yet to make a telling contribution so far. Warwickshire has a better bowling attack with all their bowlers performing well as a unit while Durham lacks effective fourth and fifth bowling options. Durham will have home conditions to their aid but we expect Warwickshire to win this match and continue their undefeated streak.

Warwickshire will win the match.
