Worcestershire and Northamptonshire are set to square off in a North Group match of the Vitality T20 Blast 2023 on Sunday, June 4. The New Road stadium in Worcester will host this exciting contest.
Worcestershire are on a roll at the moment as they have won four games on the Trott, including a 56-run victory against Nottinghamshire in the previous game. They currently sit comfortably on top of the points table with eight points and a net run rate of +1.345.
On the back of useful fifties from Michael Bracewell (55) and Adam Hose (51), Worcestershire posted a mammoth total of 226/5 in 20 overs. In response, Patrick Brown and Brett D’Oliveira picked up four wickets apiece as Worcestershire won the game comfortably with one over to spare and register their fourth win in a row.
After a poor start to the tournament, Northamptonshire have picked up some momentum as they have lost just once in their previous three games. They are currently languishing at the bottom half of the points table with four points and a net run rate of -0.692.
Ben Sanderson and Andrew Tye bowled economical spells and picked up three wickets apiece as Northamptonshire restricted Leicestershire to a below-par total of 164/8 in 20 overs.
Chasing 165, Chris Lynn single-handedly destroyed the bowling unit as he scored an unbeaten 110 runs off just 68 balls with the help of 13 fours and five sixes to earn a well-deserved win for the team.
