Worcestershire Rapids v Somerset – Betting Tips and Prediction
The Rapids have stuttered a little so far and this looks another tough task.
While the return of Pat Brown offered more to the bowling department, not having Moeen leaves them a little light on the batting front.
In contrast, Somerset have plenty of batting options and would be the pick to come out on top.
However, don’t forget the other markets on offer for this contest.
Back Babar to Come Back with a Bang
Babar Azam has shown what he is capable of in flurries this summer, especially in the white-ball game.
He was the main man with the bat during the 2019 edition of the tournament and can come back firing for Somerset now.
His price of 2.63 with bet365 to be Somerset’s top batsman looks hard to ignore.
Pennington the Value Bet
Dillon Pennington has continued to show his improvement at the start of the T20 Blast.
He did really well last year and has carried that forward with three wickets so far.
Pat Brown may be back in the fold but he drew a blank last time out and could still be shaking off some of that ring rust. The last game against Gloucestershire was his first cricket in more than a year and it could be worth taking him on.
In the top Worcestershire bowler market, Pennington is double the price of Brown and that has to worth a look. He can be backed at 5.00 and should enjoy the surface at Edgbaston.
Jack Haynes to Continue Progress
Young batsman Jack Haynes has bags of natural ability and has taken to the Worcestershire first team like a duck to water this summer.
He has also made his Blast debut and looks a decent bet to be the Rapids top batsman, especially if their opening partnership fils to fire once again.
Haynes, who has come through the England age-groups, can be backed at 5.5 with bet365 to secure the most runs for the Rapids.
