In the upcoming fixture of the North Group we have Worcestershire taking on Northamptonshire for an intriguing clash at New Road Stadium, Worcester. The host had a decent game in their last away game against Derbyshire before coming to this game. An all round performance by both the batsmen and bowlers gave them the comfortable victory they needed against Derbyshire who succumbed to 135 runs in 20 over. In reply, Worcestershire opener Martin Guptill’s 65 runs off 65 balls gave them a strong start and the rest of the batting department contributed their best which saw them through but this is not going to be the same in this game because they are up against Northamptonshire who are desperate for a win in this game after missing out to Lancashire in their last outing.
So, a lot of ups and down in expected to take place in the span of 24 hours. Worcestershire vs Northamptonshire clash will begin at 10:00 PM IST.
