Match: Nottinghamshire vs Worcestershire, North Group
Date and Time: 22nd June 2021, at 11:00 PM IST
Venue: Trent Bridge, Nottingham
The North Group of the T20 Blast will see Nottinghamshire take on Worcestershire at Trent Bridge on Tuesday.
Defending champions Nottinghamshire have been rather inconsistent in the T20 Blast this season with three wins in six games. However, two of those matches have also ended in a tie, including the reverse fixture against Worcestershire. Their openers, Joe Clarke and Alex Hales, have impressed in patches, with their middle-order coming up trumps more often than not. However, the onus will be on the Nottinghamshire bowlers to come up with the goods as they seek a win at home.
Their opponents Worcestershire have also been inconsistent this season with only two wins from five T20 Blast games. Although they have a deep roster filled with explosive talent, Worcestershire are yet to fire as a unit. With Moeen Ali unlikely to feature in this round of fixtures, much is expected of their top-order, which will be key at Trent Bridge.
Although both teams look well-equipped on paper, Nottinghamshire will start the T20 Blast fixture as the clear favorites. With valuable points up for grabs, we should be in for another thriller between the two sides on Tuesday.

A high-scoring T20 Blast game beckons on Tuesday, with there being little room for error for the bowlers. Although there isn’t much on offer for the bowlers, the spinners should find success by varying pace and getting some turn off the surface. Wickets in hand will be key, with both teams looking to attack from ball one. Either side will look to chase upon winning the toss, with 180 being par at the venue.
