Mathew Kelly, Josh Cobb, Ben Sanderson, and Tom Taylor will form a strong core of the pace bowling department. They have the strongest spin department with the likes of Graeme White and Freddie Hilderich in their playing XI.

Worcestershire will open the batting with the likes of Ed Pollock and Brett Oliveria in this season. Their middle order comprises of Jack Haynes, Jack Libby, Ben Cox, and Ed Barnard. International stars Michael Bracewell, Michael Santner, and Azhar Ali will provide the required firepower and depth in batting line-up.

Northampton is one of the good pitches with the ball bouncing steeply from length. The new ball might be tough to time and ease down as the match progresses. Northampton will have a bright and sunny weather on the match day.
Northampton will have good bounce and carry that will be enjoyed by the bowlers and any target above 180 runs will be tough to chase on this pitch.
Teams will opt to bowl first at this venue as they will be unaware of the pitch conditions on offer and we expect the captains to continue the recent trend of chasing in this match.
Worcestershire have a strong batting line-up with a lot of all rounders to provide depth. They have a good combination of pace and spin bowlers in their playing XI. Northamptonshire have a good experienced batting line-up with a lot of big names but lacks experience and firepower in their bowling attack on paper. We expect Worcestershire to win this match.
