THE PREDICTION

An explosive 80 not out from Irish overseas star Paul Stirling helped Northamptonshire Steelbacks cruise to a nine wicket win in their second Vitality Blast game against Worcestershire Rapids, after their first match was washed out. Somerset’s first T20 encounter of the year was also rained off and having not taken to the field at all in this format so far, the hosts could have the edge here. Add that to Northants’ firepower at the top of the order, combined with the absence of both Tom Banton and Lewis Gregory for Somerset, the Steelbacks will be expected to make it two wins on the bounce in the Central Group.
