Match Details:

Series: Vitality T20 Blast 2019

Venue: Edgbaston, Birmingham

Date: September 21, 2019

Time: 3:30 p.m. IST

Preview: 

Worcestershire will host Nottinghamshire in the first semi-final of T20 Blast 2019 at Edgbaston on Saturday. Both teams are coming into this match on the back of comprehensive victories over Sussex and Middlesex by 8 and 10 wickets respectively. However, it was Nottinghamshire who finished at a better position in the North Group during the league stage of the tournament. They had finished at second with 16 points while Worcestershire had just made it to the next round at the fourth place with 15 points to their name. But both teams are in superb form and, thus, a thrilling clash can be expected.

Weather Conditions: Partly cloudy conditions in forecast with no chance of rain.

Pitch conditions: The track at this venue could see scored in the 160-170 range in the first innings. This is the latter stage of the tournament and, hence, there is always the chance of the pitch slowing down with the progress of the match. The team winning the toss should bat first.

Probable Playing XIs:

Worcestershire:

Riki Wessels, Moeen Ali, Thomas Charles Fell, Ben Cox, Ross Whiteley, Ed Barnard, Daryl Mitchell, Joe Leach, Dillon Pennington, Charlie Morris, Patrick Brown

Nottinghamshire:

Chris Nash, Alex Hales, Ben Duckett, Jake Libby, Samit Patel, Tom Moores, Daniel Christian, Imad Wasim, Luke Wood, Matthew Carter, Harry Gurney
