THE PREDICTION

After losing their first match of the T20 Blast to Yorkshire Vikings, Birmingham Bears made a statement in their most recent game against Notts Outlaws, racking up an incredible score of 229/5 with batters Ed Pollock, Sam Hain and overseas all-rounder Carlos Braithwaite all getting amongst the runs. Derbyshire Falcons however, are no mugs with the bat themselves, recording 209/6 last time out in a 23-run win over Leicestershire Foxes. However, Birmingham Bears represent far tougher opposition considering their superior bowling attack compared to Leicestershire and that bowling attack should see the visitors restrict Derbyshire Falcons to a score that ultimate leads to a Birmingham Bears win whether they are bowling or batting first.
