YOR Team News

With only six victories across the entirety of the group stage of the 2023 Vitality Blast, Yorkshire Vikings will be looking for a big improvement across their side this year. They will be without Jonny Bairstow, Adil Rashid and Harry Brook who are all in England’s T20 World Cup squad.

YOR Team Batting

Although Yorkshire Vikings did not have a strong campaign last season, they do have two experienced and talented left-handed batters at the top of their order. Both Adam Lyth and Dawid Malan will fancy their chances of getting off to a good start against this Worcestershire bowling attack.

The likes of Jordan Thompson, Dom Bess and Matthew Fisher will have the task of taking the bulk of the wickets for the Vikings on Thursday evening. Namibian David Wiese is at the T20 World Cup and his pace will be missed in the side in this game.

WOR Team News

There was a quarter-final exit for Worcestershire Rapids in the 2023 Vitality Blast who were beaten by Hampshire by 5 wickets after finishing in third place in the North Group. They have a well drilled side and few would be surprised if they ended in the top four once more this season.

WOR Team Batting

Captain Brett D’Oliveira and Jack Haynes are expected to be Worcestershire Rapids’ openers in this game but Ben Cox and Adam Hose are their batters who most pundits anticipate will score highly. Usama Mir and Ed Pollock are both capable of lower order runs. 

WOR Team Bowling

Worcestershire Rapids have invested in two overseas bowlers with spinner Usama Mir returning to the side along with New Zealand seamer Nathan Smith. Pat Brown and Dillon Pennington have both got strong T20 records to fall back on.

🏆 Yorkshire vs Worcestershire Prediction

Worcestershire Rapids had a much stronger campaign than Yorkshire Vikings last year but this is a new T20 Blast season and both sides start from scratch again. In front of a strong home support, we expect the top order strength at Yorkshire Vikings to be enough to take them to victory.
