THE LOWDOWN

Northamptonshire’s last Bob Willis Trophy match saw them bundled out for just 67 and 154 as they were beaten heavily by Central Group leaders Somerset in just two days. Worcestershire meanwhile, failed to back up victory over Gloucestershire with a second successive win, as they were unable to take the final three wickets against Glamorgan and had to settle for a draw.

THE PREDICTION

The home side are sure to be low on confidence after such a beating by Somerset, whilst Worcestershire will be frustrated by how close they came to making it two wins from two in this tournament. Rain is expected to play a big part here and the draw looks the most likely outcome as a result. Although with a result pitch expected, Worcestershire will be confident of taking 20 wickets and securing victory should they get enough overs played within the four days.
