Worcestershire Rapids will host Yorkshire in the NatWest T20 Blast 2016. The latest Worcestershire Rapids v Yorkshire betting tips for this NatWest encounter can be checked below.
Worcestershire Rapids have begun their run in the 2016 edition of the NatWest T20 Blast on a terrific note, having won both their fixtures so far. Sitting at the top of the North group table with four points and a net run rate far superior than the others, they have been playing fairly better than the other sides.
Their last opponents were Warwickshire, whom they defeated by five wickets. It was an average performance by the team, as they chased down 155 runs comfortably, in 19 overs.
They can seek solace from the fact that their middle order batting appears to be quite good, as Alexei Kervezee and Brett D’Oliveira took the team to win after losing early wickets. Prior to this, they defeated Durham by 38 runs, owing to a sensational 127 runs scored in 54 balls by Tom Kohler-Cadmore.
However, comparing them with Yorkshire on paper, it appears that it is latter with a stronger team, considering they have more international caps. But that hasn’t been the case, as they incurred a loss in their opening game in the league. They had to chase down 174 runs, but could reach as far as 120 runs, losing all the wickets.
Nonetheless, they are bringing in additional players, following a superb form in the Indian Premier League. In addition to Joe Root and Kane Williamson, Jonny Baristow is also expected to join the side soon. Warwickshire aren’t too far behind either, seeing that they have bagged Mooen Ali and Kyle Abott, to compliment the young squad.
This is going to be a great fixture, and both of them appear to be well matched. While this is a tricky one to call, Worcestershire Rapids do appear to be the favorites, owing to their momentum.
