lancs vs wor Match Prediction & Analysis

Lancashire had a brilliant start to the season with 3 wins in their first 4 matches but their fortunes took a tide as they failed to win in their next 5 matches with a tied game, an abandoned game and 3 losses. They need to get their act right before they are pushed to the bottom of the points table. Worcestershire are having a rollercoaster ride with string of wins followed by losses and then by a couple of wins in their last 2 matches. They will look to win this match and get their third consecutive win to surge up the point’s table.

Teams Preview

Lancashire Preview

Alex Davies looked to set the tempo of the chase with his 15-ball 39 runs which had 5 massive sixes. But quick wickets derailed the momentum from 58/1 to 102/6. Steven Croft (41 runs) and Luke Wood (33 runs) lead their team`s fightback by they fell agonizingly close by 7 runs short.  

Saqib Mahmood, Steven Croft, and Tom Hartley bowled well in tandem and picked up 4 wickets between them in the match. Danny Lamb and Mathew Parkinson went for runs at over 10 RPO and their bowling unit allowed the opposition to make 173 runs in their 20 overs quota.

Top players to bet on:

Finn Allen – Finn Allen has a couple of quiet outings after a brilliant start to the season. He has scored 215 runs at a strike arte of 138 with 2 fifties so far. We expect him to make a big score in this match.

Tom Hartley – Hartley was the pick of the bowlers last night with figures of 4-0-25-1. He has taken 6 wickets at an economy rate of just 6.8 RPO so far. His economical spell in middle overs have been a big positive for his team.

Lancashire Predicted Playing XI:

Finn Allen, Keaton Jennings, Alex Davies, Rob Jones, Dane Vilas (c & wk), Steven Croft, Luke Wood, Danny Lamb, Tom Hartley, Saqib Mahmood, Matthew Parkinson

Worcestershire Preview

Worcestershire openers Riki Wessels (46 runs) and Brett D Oliveria (69 runs) out batted the opposition in the chase with their 103–run partnership. Despite 3 quick wickets they strolled past the target in the last over comfortably. Their middle order is strengthened by addition of Darly Mitchell.  

New ball bowlers Ben Dwarsius and Dillon Pennington bowled superbly and claimed 2 wickets each and had combined bowling figures of 8-0-43-4. Kiwi duo of daryl Mitchell and Ish Sodhi chipped in with a wicket each. Charlie Morris had an off-day going for 54 runs in his 4 overs.

Top players to bet on:

Brett D Oliveria – Brett has been their batting mainstay with 247 runs in 9 matches at a strike rate of nearly 130. We expect him to make an excellent start in this match too.  

Daryl Mitchell – Daryl Mitchell is an excellent all-rounder who can bat and ball well. He has hit some quick runs in the lower order with his ability to hit massive sixes.  He will be effective with the ball in middle overs and can be a game changer for his team.

Worcestershire Predicted Playing XI:

Riki Wessels, Brett DOliveira, Jake Libby, Daryl Mitchell, Ben Cox (c & wk), Ross Whiteley, Ed Barnard, Ben Dwarshuis, Ish Sodhi, Dillon Pennington, Charlie Morris
