The reigning champion Worcestershire would be hoping to continue their year-old consistency in English Vitality T20 Blast when they see their first opponent – Nottinghamshire Outlaws at Trent Bridge, Nottingham on Thursday.
Worcestershire who was nearly lying at the bottom of the point table in the 2017 edition, bounced back strongly in 2018 and lifted the T20 blast trophy with the pride. Now they would be willing to play with the same temperament and engrave the desired results.
On the other hand, Nottinghamshire Outlaws were kept on the 4th spot of the North Points table with 8 wins in 14 matches. Their dream was crushed by Somerset in the Quarterfinals where they lost the game by 19 runs. They would try not to repeat the mistakes they committed last year and play some brilliant cricket for their fans.
