Worcestershire hasn’t been able to get going this season of the Vitality Blast. They are stuck at the bottom in the North Group and have just 1 win in 7 games and 2 points at a horrible net run rate of -1.224. They really need some solid wins under their belt to give their campaign some momentum and will be hoping to score a big in their next match against Derbyshire. At 5th place with 7 points and a net run rate of +0.147, Derbyshire has done a little better, but they have only 3 wins in 7 games. A big win here will push them to 4th place.

Worcestershire Preview

Worcestershire’s only win this season has come against Warwickshire. Apart from that victory, they have lost 6 matches. They are coming off a crushing 73-run defeat against Northamptonshire where they slumped to 147 all out while chasing a target of 221.

Opener Brett D'Oliveira is the team’s leading run-getter this season with 209 runs at a strike rate of 160.76. Jack Haynes (187 runs at 157.14) and Colin Munro (187 runs at 144.96) are the other two batters who have impressed the most and have held the middle-order together. Unfortunately, the others have failed. Worcestershire needs its captain Moeen Ali to lead from the front. Perhaps spending all-rounder Dwayne Bravo a little up the order would also help.

Worcestershire’s bowling has been poor. The bowlers have leaked runs aplenty and that’s been their biggest issue. Dillon Pennington has picked up 5 wickets but gone at an economy of 11.71. Ed Barnard too has 6 wickets but has an economy of 9.57. Only Bravo (4 wickets at 7.83) and 'Oliveira (6 wickets at 7.90) have been able to keep things in check somewhat.

Worcestershire Predicted Playing XI:

Brett DOliveira, Jake Libby, Moeen Ali (c), Colin Munro, Jack Haynes, Ben Cox (wk), Ed Barnard, Dwayne Bravo, Jacques Banton, Dillon Pennington, Patrick Brown

Derbyshire Preview

Derbyshire has had a topsy-turvy season. They started the season with 2 wins in their first 3 games but then were pulled back by three consecutive losses. They have made a comeback in their last match with a comprehensive 6-wicket win against Leicestershire where they cashed a target of 182 in 18.4 overs courtesy of a scintillating 73 off 32 balls by captain Shan Masood. 

Masood is now their leading run-scorer of the season with 222 runs at a strike rate of 154.16. He’s followed by South African middle-order batter Leus du Plooy (204 runs at 152.23). Wayne Madsen has also impressed at No.3 and has 165 runs at 141.02.

On the bowling front, George Scrimshaw has been the wrecker-in-chief for Derbyshire with 11 wickets at 8.69. Left-arm fast bowler Hayden Kerr, who opens the bowling for the team, has 8 wickets but has also been expensive. Leg-spinner Mark Watt (4 wickets at 8.30) has done a decent job but would need to pick up more wickets to make an impact.

Derbyshire Predicted Playing XI:

Shan Masood (c), Luis Reece, Leus du Plooy, Wayne Madsen, Alex Hughes, Brooke Guest (wk), Matt McKiernan, Hayden Kerr, Mark Watt, Samuel Conners, George Scrimshaw

Weather Conditions

The wicket at New Road in Worcester is traditionally very good for batting. We have already seen two 200-plus scores on the venue this season in the same match. Expect another high-scoring encounter where batters make merry.

Venue Details

The first match of the season played at New Road this season saw Worcestershire piling on 217-5 on the board and Warwickshire scoring 202-8 in return. The average score by the team batting first here is 171 but totals in excess of 190 have been achieved 16 times out of 48 matches. 

Toss: To Bat

Both the games played at New Road this season have been won by the team batting first. The team winning the toss is here is likely to bat first.

Worcestershire has had the edge against Derbyshire in recent years and has won 4 of the 5 matches played against them. However, Derbyshire has looked the better team this year while the Worcs have been all over the place. Worcestershire’s best chance is if they bat first and put on a huge total as their bowlers have been regularly leaking runs. Playing at home will certainly give them some confidence.

Back Derbyshire as the winners of this encounter.
