Match Predictions and Team Previews
Worcestershire and Nottinghamshire last played a Vitality Blast game at Worcester on 9 June 2021. In that match, the home team batted first and were soon in dire straits after losing 4 wickets for 63 before they were rescued by a 78-run stand for the 5th wicket between Ross Whiteley and Jake Libby that ended with 4 balls left in the innings. Worcestershire ended up with an eventual score of 152/6, thanks largely to Libby’s unbeaten 52 from 43 balls and Whiteley’s 42 from 35 deliveries. For Notts, Luke Fletcher and Matthew Carter took 2 wickets each, while Steven Mullaney grabbed the other wicket that fell.
Notts began their reply on a positive note, with a 76-run stand for the first wicket in just 6 overs. But the hosts struck back with a flurry of wickets to leave the visitors floundering on 100 for 4 in 10 overs. But a couple of productive partnerships saw Notts poised at 147 for 6 in the 19th over. In a thrilling finish, the match ended in a tie, when a couple of run outs in the last over helped the hosts restrict the tourists to 152 for 8. Moeen Ali and Charlie Morris took two wickets each for Worcester, while Ish Sodhi took one.
