Venue:- Riverside Ground, Chester-le-Street
Match Timings:- Friday, July 20th, 2018, 11:00 PM IST
With three wins in five matches, Durham has had a mixed tournament thus far and they’ll be hoping to build on the winning momentum they’d achieved due to back-to-back wins in their last two encounters. Kiwi batsman Tom Latham was the star for Durham in their 34-run victory over Nottinghamshire as they amassed 5-184 in 20 overs. Latham’s heroics were ably matched by the bowlers as Collingwood (3-25), Nathan Rimmington (2-35) and Imran Tahir (2-20) restricted Nottinghamshire to 150, 34-run adrift of the target.
Their opponents in Worcestershire will come into this game with four wins in five games and will be hoping to consolidate their standings in the points table when they take on Durham in DUR vs WOR, North Group match.
The pitch at Riverside ground seems to aid the team batting first historically. In three T20 matches thus far, the team batting first has won on two occasions and the average score registered is 163 which drops down to 147 while chasing.
