Middlesex and Warwickshire will be battling it out to take another step towards the knockout stage this Friday. Currently, Middlesex are at 3rd pace in the Group A table with 8 points and a net run rate of +0.720. A solid win here can take them to 2nd place. Warwickshire, meanwhile, are 4th with 7 points and a net run rate of -0.186. Their poor net run rate means they will have to score a big win here to improve their chances.

Middlesex Preview

Middlesex have built some great momentum and have won 4 consecutive games. In their last match, they chased down a target of 336 in 49.2 overs with one wicket to spare against Somerset. Pieter Malan top-scored with a brilliant 110 off 93 balls. He’s now scored 227 runs at an average of 56.75. Captain Stephen Eskinazi is the leading run-getter of this season with 540 runs at an unbelievable average of 135. Eskinazi has smashed three hundreds already this season and will be their main man. Another man to watch out for will be Sam Robson who has collected 278 runs at 69.50.

On the bowling front, Umesh Yadav has been a superstar for Middlesex. The Indian speedster has picked up 15 wickets at an economy of 5.50 – the second-most by a bowler this season. Leg-spinner Luke Hollman, with 8 wickets at 6.07, will again have a crucial role to play during the middle stage.
 

Middlesex Predicted Playing XI:

Stephen Eskinazi (c), Mark Stoneman, Sam Robson, Pieter Malan, Max Holden, Joe Cracknell (wk), Luke Hollman, Martin Andersson, Umesh Yadav, Max Harris, Toby Greatwood

Warwickshire Preview

Warwickshire scored a good win in their previous game  – by 14 runs against Nottinghamshire. In a match reduced to 34 overs-a-side, Warwickshire posted 271-6 on batting first. Captain Will Rhodes led from the front with a fantastic 113 off 85 balls. Other than him, Robert Yates has been the most consistent batter for Warwickshire this year with 326 runs under his belt at an average of 65.20. All-rounder Krunal Pandya showed some form in the last match with a well-made 37 off 28 balls down the order. His form could be crucial for Warwickshire as the batting unit hasn’t fired yet.

Pandya is also the highest-taker for the team this season with 9 scalps with his left-arm spin at an economy of 5.62. Opening bowler Oliver Hannon-Dalby has also taken 9 wickets at an economy of 6.23.
 

Warwickshire Predicted Playing XI:

Robert Yates, Dominic Sibley, Will Rhodes (c), Michael Burgess (wk), Krunal Pandya, Matthew Lamb, Ethan Brookes, Kai Smith, Liam Norwell, George Garrett, Oliver Hannon-Dalby

Weather Conditions

The pitch at Radlett is a really good one for batting that stays true throughout the 100 overs. Batters will have a great time on this nice hard surface while seam bowlers will struggle after the initial moisture wears off. Spinners might have a role to play during the middle overs.

The weather in Radlett on the day of the game will be partly sunny.
 

Venue Details

In the two matches played at the Radlett Cricket Club this season, totals over 340 have been achieved thrice already, with the highest being 359-8 by Leicestershire. The team batting first in this match will have to post a total in the range of 330-340 to feel safe.

Toss: To Bat

The team batting first has won both the matches at this venue this season. The captain winning the toss is likely to bat first.

In the last 3 completed matches between Middlesex and Warwickshire, the latter has won twice while Middlesex has won 1 game. However, the last time these two teams faced off in the Royal London One-Day Cup was back in July 2015. Currently, Middlesex is looking really strong and have an outstanding batting unit. In Umesh Yadav, they have an in-form pacer as well. Expect them to dominate this contest.

Middlesex should emerge victorious in this clash.
