The Worcestershire v Durham betting tips for this NatWest T20 Blast game follow.
Worcestershire vs Durham Match News
The hosts have been one of the in-form teams, having won six of their last eight games in the tournament. They enter this match with a victory against the much-fancied Nottinghamshire thanks to Tom Kohler-Cadmore’s 39-ball 75 and Joe Leach’s three-wicket haul in that match.Overall though, it has been Daryll Mitchell’s consistency at the top and the bowling of Saeed Ajmal and Jack Shantry that has taken them to the position they find themselves. With 12 points in their kitty and five games in hand, they are all but sure of making the quarter-finals.
What they won’t want going into the rest of their matches is the slipping of momentum, something that could carry on with them even if they make the quarter-finals.Durham are hanging on to the top four slot but just by the skin of their teeth. They have 10 points from 10 games, tied with Leicestershire and Lancashire for the third spot, but with Northamptonshire on nine from nine, they know they have to keep winning.At one stage at the top of the table, Durham tumbled down when they lost some of the matches in the middle but fought back well to beat Leicestershire last game.
Egged on by captain Marcus Stoneman’s unbeaten 89, they scored 163 before John Hastings and Usman Arshad bagged three apiece to hold their opponents down to just 125. With four games still to be played, Durham know they need to win at least two to remain in contention and three to seal the deal – making this a crucial encounter for them.

Saeed Ajmal (Worcestershire):All his bowling action woes seem to be behind him now as Ajmal has picked up 13 wickets from seven games at 17 in this competition. How the Durham lads play this wily off-spinner could be the difference between a win and a loss.
Usman Arshad (Durham):With 18 wickets from 10 games, Arshad is third on the list of most wickets picked in the tournament so far behind Tom Smith and Shaun Tait. He will hold the key to his side’s chances yet again as they look to try and defend whatever their batsmen can conjure up.

Worcestershire vs Durham Match Preview Betting tips
Mark Stoneman is having a good time of it at the moment.His purple patch started with the televised Twenty20 game against Lancashire late last month, when he made only his third half-century in the format.He followed that with his second County Championship century of the summer, taking him past 600 runs for the campaign.Then, on Friday, he smashed Durham’s second-largest Twenty20 score – 89 not out from 60 deliveries. Had he faced just one more, he probably could have at least equalled Phil Mustard’s high-water mark of 91 in 2013.
After a slow start to the campaign, the left-hander from Sunniside knows he has to make the most of his form. Another score of 50-plus at Worcester on Sunday would be just the ticket.Things are going on quite nicely,” he said. “It’s always nice when you get into a period like this, the key is to stretch it out for as long as possible.If it went from now until September that would be great but it’s a funny old game and it can turn on you quickly.I’m just trying to keep doing the simple things well, watching the ball hard, and hopefully it continues.”The best thing about Stoneman’s knock against Leicestershire was that, unlike the previous two, he got to sing the Blaydon Races at the end of it.Stoneman was on the wrong side of two hammerings against Lancashire and Yorkshire, but Durham’s victory song got an airing at Chester-le-Street on Friday.
“It always feels a little bit more special when you perform well and you’re winning,” said the 28-year-old limited-overs captain.It still means a lot to be performing, but you want to be winning.”Right now, Durham need to be winning.The innings and 47-run defeat to Yorkshire knocked them off the top of Championship Division One, and left them with work to do to take the title off the Tykes, who play their game in hand at Warwickshire this week, while the Riversiders put their feet up.Friday’s comfortable 38-run win moved Durham back into the Twenty20 top four with four matches to play.A win at New Road will pull them level on points with Worcestershire, who have played a game less.The top four in the northern group qualify for the knockouts.The two points were crucial to keep the momentum going,” said Stoneman. “Another two on Sunday would be fantastic. There’s still everything to play for.”And Stoneman pointed to Ryan Pringle as an example of how everyone can chip in.The all-rounder made three from five balls and did not bowl against the Foxes, but his leaping boundary catch to remove Thomas Wells was the highlight of the night.
“He didn’t get the ball thrown to him but to still be able to contribute like that is important in playing the game,” said Stoneman. “That lad was hitting a few quite well so to hold his nerve right on the boundary edge and take that catch was an important play.One day you’re a hero, the next you’re a villain and all the lads know that.f they’ve had a disappointing night they can still come out on Sunday and be a match-winner. That’s the beauty of Twenty20.
Young Worcestershire Rapids’ batsman Tom Kohler-Cadmore believes “no-one is under-estimating us anymore” in NatWest T20 Blast cricket.Rapids, who are lying second in the North Group, return to action this evening against Nottinghamshire Outlaws at Trent Bridge (6.30pm), looking to bounce back from the two-run defeat against Northamptonshire Steelbacks last Friday.Then on Sunday they have a home clash with Durham Jets (2.30pm), which is being televised live on Sky Sports.Rapids are one of only two sides not to have reached finals day but they have appeared in the quarter-finals in two of the past three seasons.
Kohler-Cadmore, 20, said: “We’ve beaten Notts before in T20 — and in T20 cricket anyone can beat anyone.One knock can really change everything. It doesn’t even have to be a big knock, just a 20 off an over maybe.No-one is under-estimating us anymore because, especially in the last two years, we’ve been there or thereabouts.We’ve got some strong hitters and very skilful bowlers.We’re in the top two and we’ve now got to get back on the horse of winning again.”Rapids will be hoping for a repeat of last year’s thrilling game, also shown live on television, when late big hitting from Gareth Andrew and Ross Whiteley ensured victory in a rain-affected match of 13 overs per side.Worcestershire’s director of cricket Steve Rhodes is forced to make one change from the side edged out by Steelbacks.
Moeen Ali, who has played in the last six games, has now linked up with England for the first Ashes Test at Cardiff next Wednesday.Richard Oliver was the regular opener until Moeen was allowed to return to his County throughout June.The former Shropshire captain has not played in the last three T20 Blast matches with Brett D’Oliveira returning to the side.Meanwhile, Notts’ director of cricket Mick Newell challenged his side to win four of their last five T20 matches in order to secure qualification for the knockout stages.They have lost five of their opening nine games but won a thrilling televised game at New Road by 11 runs last month.Newell said: “It’s very much up in the air again and Birmingham, who won it last year, qualified with 16 points.
With five games to go, we’re quite capable of winning four of them and getting to that total.Looking at the group this year, nobody is running away with it so 15 points might even get you through because all teams are beating each other.”Seamer Luke Fletcher and former Worcestershire academy batsman James Taylor were members of the winning Outlaws side at New Road last month but both will be missing this evening after picking up hamstring injuries in the two sides’ four-day match.Taylor’s absence is likely to mean Riki Wessels will captain Outlaws for the first time in the format in his 100th T20 match in England.
