T20 Blast 2022: DUR vs WOR Match Prediction – Who will win the match between Durham and Worcestershire? Durham will be looking for their first T20 Blast victory when they face Worcestershire.
Durham will face Worcestershire in the T20 Blast 2022 North Group match on June 1 at the Riverside Ground in Chester-le-Street. Both teams have had difficulty getting started in this tournament. Durham has only one win in three games. Despite starting their season with a 54-run victory over Leicester, they went on to lose their next two games by 31 runs and five wickets to Northamptonshire and Warwickshire, respectively. As a result, they are in desperate need of getting their campaign back on track.
Worcestershire, on the other hand, are in a state of disarray as they sit at the bottom of the table. They have failed to win a single game in their last three matches this season. They were defeated by Yorkshire by seven wickets in their season opener on May 25, and then suffered back-to-back defeats by Nottinghamshire by four wickets and Lancashire by 12 runs.

The Riverside Ground’s pitch is ideal for batting, with the ball expected to land nicely on the bat. On this surface, expect a high-scoring game with batters having a good time once they are well-set at the crease. There is no help for the bowlers, and all they can do is bowl in the right areas with a disciplined line and length. In the second innings, the batting side will be advantageous. As a result, the captain who wins the toss will prefer to bowl first.

Probable Top Performers
Probable best batter of the match: Colin Munro
Colin Munro, a New Zealand T20 specialist, missed the first game but made amends with two half-centuries against Nottinghamshire and Yorkshire, scoring 66 and 53 respectively. With 119 runs from two games, the Kiwi power-hitter will be hoping for another impactful knock as his team desperately needs a win. More importantly, the seasoned cricketer is expected to provide the finishing touches in the middle order.
Liam Trevaskis was Durham’s standout bowler in their most recent match against Warwickshire, finishing with figures of 2/35 from four overs. Despite dismissing Paul Stirling and Adam Hose, the skipper was a bit expensive with the ball in hand, bowling at an economy rate of 8.8. Trevaskis will be hoping for a better showing this time around.
