notts vs wor Match Prediction & Analysis

Rain washouts are causing agony for all the side in the Vitality T20 Blast 2021. The Notts Outlaws come here after a tied game against the Lancashire Lightning and take on the Worcestershire Rapids in the 58th game. The Rapids saw their last game against the Northamptonshire Steelbacks being washed away by rain and the side has dropped in form in the recent games. 

The lack of consistency in the batting department has hurt the Worcestershire Rapids and they have suffered batting collapses in the season on more than one occasion. Notts Outlaws on the other hand have a very strong batting line-up and would be playing in conditions they are familiar with and shall look to use it to their advantage.

Teams Preview

Nottinghamshire Preview

Steven Mullaney’s team would be happy to have finished the last game in a tie against the Lancashire Lightning. They held their nerves in the final ball of the games and prevented Lightning from walking away with a win. They have won three out of their six games so far and the skipper would be eager to put the disappointment of the last game behind and win this game. 

Alex Hales and Joe Clarke add solidity to the line-up at the top and a good start would be expected from them in this game. The side would also like to see good show in the middle order from Soloman Budinger, Ben Duckett and Tom Moores. In Samit Patel and Mullaney, they have good hitters of the ball down the order and the side would look for runs from them. 

Samit Patel bowled well in the last game and he would have to garb early wickets along with Matthew Carter. Jake Ball and Luke Fletcher have been expensive and they would have to focus on improving their line and length. Calvin Harrison and Mullaney add depth to this bowling line-up. 

Nottinghamshire Predicted Playing XI:

Steven Mullaney (c), Alex Hales, Joe Clarke, Soloman Budinger, Ben Duckett, Tom Moores (wk), Samit Patel, Luke Fletcher, Matthew Carter, Calvin Harrison, Jake Ball

Worcestershire Preview

Moeen Ali’s side comes into this with their last game against the Northamptonshire Steelbacks being washed away by rain. In their previous game the side had gone down against the Yorkshire Vikings by 94 runs due to a batting collapse. They would look to hit form here and carry on with their good record against the Notts Outlaws. 

Riki Wessels and Brett D’Oliveira have been in and out of form so far and the side would look for a good start from them in this game. The middle order looks rock solid at the moment with Moeen Ali and Ross Whiteley in good form. They would however need contributions down the order from Ben Cox, Jake Libby and Ed Barnard which hasn’t come through so far. 

Dillon Pennington and Ish Sodhi will need to bowl well in this game after the poor show against Yorkshire with the new ball. Ben Dwarshuis has been bowling good lines and the side would look for a good show from him here. Barnard, Ish Sodhi and Charlie Morris will have to bowl tight lines as the Outlaws have a very strong batting line-up.

Worcestershire Predicted Playing XI:

Moeen Ali (c), Riki Wessels, Brett D’Oliveira, Jake Libby, Ben Cox (wk), Ross Whiteley, Ed Barnard, Ben Dwarshuis, Ish Sodhi, Dillon Pennington, Charlie Morris

Weather Conditions

It would be slightly cloudy skies over Nottingham on June 22 but this would be a welcome change over what we have seen so far in the tournament. The ball is expected to come on to the bat nicely in the game and we expect to see another run feast. The side batting first would have a target of 200 or more here.

Venue Details

Trent Bridge, Nottingham is one of the biggest grounds in UK but is known for its fast outfield where lots of runs have been scored in the past.  It is difficult venue for the spinners as there isn’t much on this surface for them. Fast bowlers who can move the ball have done well in this venue in the past.

Toss: To Bat

In the two games played at this venue this season the side batting first has won both the games so far. The pitch has been a good one to bat on and set up a big score. The captain winning the toss here is likely to opt for batting first and aim at a high score.

NOTTS vs WOR Winning Prediction

Worcestershire Rapids haven’t looked at their best so far and it is their batting line-up that has been troubling the side at the moment. They have to get their act together and win this one to move up on the points table. Notts Outlaws on the other hand have lost only once this season and have looked good with the bat. Playing at their home ground they would start favorites in this game.
