wor vs yorks Match Prediction & Analysis

Vitality Blast has been up and running with almost 20 league games completed and teams are playing with full strength with England national players available. Worcestershire are currently on the top of the table and will look to extend their domination in the coming matches too. Yorkshire too are in good form with 2 wins in 3 matches and will be looking to score their third win against a strong home side. We can expect a cracking contest between two of the top sides in the competition.

Teams Preview

Worcestershire Preview

Worcestershire chased down a moderate target of 133 runs with ease with their openers Riki Wessels (40 runs) and Brett D Oliveria (61 runs) sharing a massive 79-run partnership to almost seal the game. Moeen Ali, Brandon Cox, and Ross Whiteley have also scored runs in this season and are looking in good form.

Their bowling unit performed superbly as a pack strangling the batsmen to give just 132 runs in 20 overs despite picking up only 4 wickets. Charlie Morris picked up 2 wickets while Ben Dwarsius and Brett D Oliviera picked up one wicket each in the match. All their bowlers gave runs at less than 8 RPO.

Top players to bet on:

Brett D Oliveira: Brett scored 61 runs off 45 balls to take his team home in the chase comfortably. Earlier he also contributed with the ball with bowling figures of 2-0-5-1 in the match.

Charlie Morris: Morris has bowling figures of 2/25, 2/31, & 2/23 in the 3 matches so far taking wickets in every match. He will look to continue his purple patch with the ball in this game too.

Worcestershire Predicted Playing XI:

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

Yorkshire Preview

Yorkshire posted a mammoth 240 runs in their last game with their openers Johnny Bairstow (82 runs) and Adam Lyth (51 runs) thundering with 113-run partnership. David Willey (44 runs) and Hally Brooke (48 runs) then gave finishing touched with their big hits as they hit 8 boundaries and 7 sixes in 37 balls.

Their bowlers were rocked by the opposition batsmen as they scored nearly 140+ runs in 10 overs. But they came back strongly to restrict the opposition to 222 runs.  David Willey claimed 3 wickets while Mathew Fisher and Lockie Ferguson claimed 2 wickets each in the bowling department.

Top players to bet on:

Johnny Bairstow: Bairstow`s scores read 34, 67, & 82 in the three matches so far. He has scored those runs at a strike rate of 150+ to give a brilliant start to his team. We expect him to continue his red-hot form in this match too.

David Willey: Willey had an all-round performance last night scoring 44 runs off 16 balls and then coming back with bowling figures of 4-0-44-3 to help his team to win the match.

Yorkshire Predicted Playing XI:

Adam Lyth, Jonny Bairstow (wk), Dawid Malan, Tom Kohler-Cadmore, Harry Brook, Will Fraine, David Willey (c), Jordan Thompson, Lockie Ferguson, Adil Rashid, Matthew Fisher

Weather Conditions

Worcester weather looks bright and sunny on the match day and we expect no rain interruptions in the match.

Venue Details

Worcester has been a low scoring venue in this season so far. The ball is keeping low and the pitch is slow as the batsmen struggle to time the ball. The scores have been around 130-150 runs at this venue.

Toss: To Bowl

Chasing is the best option as the teams will be unaware of the conditions early on. The early moisture in the pitch might aid bowlers with some movement in the first 5-6 overs of the match.

WOR vs YORKS Winning Prediction

Yorkshire has one of the strongest batting units in the tournament and they will be tested against the Worcestershire on a placid track. Yorkshire bowling unit looks slightly on the weaker side on comparison with the Worcestershire especially in these conditions. Worcestershire have home conditions and experience of playing on it on their positive side and will look to keep the big hitters from Yorkshire on check in this match. We expect Worcestershire to continue their winning streak.

Worcestershire will win this match.
