Worcestershire Team News & Playing 11

WOR Team News

It was a disappointing start to this year’s T20 Blast for Worcestershire Rapids who were thrashed by 8 wickets with 50 balls remaining at Headingley by Yorkshire Vikings on Thursday evening. Brett D’Oliveira will be looking for a much stronger performance across the side in this game.

WOR Team Batting

Bowled out for 101 from 15.4 overs and only two players making double-figure scores at Headingley, it is clear that Worcestershire Rapids need more from their top order in this match. The team come into this match still looking for their first six of the tournament.

WOR Team Bowling

Defending a target of 102, Worcestershire Rapids were always going to struggle against a strong Yorkshire Vikings’ batting line-up and so it proved. Adam Finch and Josh Cobb both took a wicket each but spinner Hayden Walsh should have more assistance from this pitch in Worcester.

WOR Team Form

Worcestershire Rapids were very poor with bat and ball in their opening match of the campaign.

Lancashire Team News & Playing 11

LAN Team News

In spite of being without many of their top name players and star performers from last year’s Vitality Blast, Lancashire Lightning were far too strong against Durham on Thursday. They will travel to Worcester looking to make it two wins from two.

LAN Team Batting

Although Lancashire Lightning needed only 76 to win in their opening match, their batters showed excellent attacking intent and got over the finish line with 12 overs remaining. Luke Wells (49 not out from 25 balls) and George Bell (22 not out from 18 balls) will both look to bat in the same positive fashion in this match.

LAN Team Bowling

Celebrating a new contract signed only 24 hours earlier, England international and T20 specialist Luke Wood returned excellent figures of 2/7 from his 2.3 overs against Durham. Right-arm medium fast bowler Tom Aspinwall will be full of confidence in this game after taking four wickets on his Blast debut.

LAN Team Form

Lancashire Lightning easily beat a good Durham side on Thursday and will arrive with plenty of self-belief.
