The pitch is on the slower side slightly and bowlers have dominated the proceedings, but the pitch seems to ease out as the match progresses. We expect the scores to be in the range of 160-170 runs in this match too.
Birmingham is one of the iconic venues in the English circuit and it is the home ground for the Warwickshire team. They have mixed record in their matches played here this season and will be looking to continue the winning streak.
Chasing is the trend of the T20 matches and we expect the same to continue in this match as the pitch looks good for entire duration of the match despite only 2 out of 5 matches played here have been won by teams batting second in this season.
Both teams have been led by their top order in the matches played so far but Warwickshire have a better firepower in batting unit and will have the advantage of the home conditions on offer. Warwickshire bowlers have complimented each other and have bowled well as a unit while Worcestershire too has been excellent in the bowling department as a unit. We expect Warwickshire to win this match and continue their winning form at the top of the table.
Warwickshire will win the match.
