Northamptonshire takes on Worcestershire in the Central Group’s second match on Tuesday in the T20 Blast 2020. Worcestershire is at the bottom of the table with a single victory so far in the season. On the other hand, Northamptonshire is second in the table with four victories from 7 matches. Worcestershire has no one to blame other than themselves as they let go of a few winning opportunities. That’s where Northamptonshire has been good in clinching on to crucial moments. But they seem to have lost some momentum at this very juncture by losing the last two games. Now Northamptonshire can’t afford more defeats in order to make their way into the quarterfinals.

The Country Ground in Northampton has been on the high scoring in the last few seasons. The average score of first innings has been around 175. Historically spinners have got more assistance than pacers at this venue.
The Irish batsman is in decent form in the tournament. He might have not scored a big knock after the 80 in his first match of the tour but he has given the team good starts on most occasions. His PPM of 53 in the tour makes him one among the top picks of the match.
He was off to a slow start in the season but once got into his groove he has been unstoppable. He has scored four 30+ scores in the last 5 matches. His PPM of 55 and an MDTA of 1.2 makes him the must-have in any given fantasy team.
The left-arm spinner is the most consistent performer for Northamptonshire in the season. He has chipped in with at least a wicket or two in every match played so far. So he is the first name on any given fantasy team in this match.
He is the most unpredictable player of the match given his performance in the tour. He either scores 20 odd points or can be a game-changer with scoring 50+ points in any given team. His unpredictability makes him the big bet of this match.
The veteran batsman is a miss in our SL team. Historically he has good numbers in the league but in this season he is going through of the horrible time that he has ever had. He has a PPM of 21 and MDTA of 6 in the tournament
