Northamptonshire Steelbacks entertain the Worcestershire Rapids in a Vitality Blast match at the County Cricket Ground on Tuesday evening. The Steelbacks need a victory to make sure of a play-off place, while the Rapids will be trying to avoid finishing bottom of the Central Group.

Northamptonshire Steelbacks Form


The Northamptonshire Steelbacks are in with a good chance of reaching the play-offs, despite crumbling in their last match.

Having won 4 of their 6 matches before taking on the Birmingham Bears, the Steelbacks looked set to seal a play-off place on Sunday. Things did not go according to plan as they were bowled out for 98 runs. The Bears cruised home to win by 7 wickets at Sophia Gardens in Cardiff.

Opener Paul Stirling will be up for this clash against the Rapids, having scored an outstanding 80 not out in the reverse fixture this season.

The batting collapse against the Bears will be a worry, but the Steelbacks are likely to go in with an unchanged side that has performed very well for the most part this season.

Worcestershire Rapids Form


Worcestershire Rapids have won one match this season and have no chance of reaching the play-offs. It is likely that they will finish bottom of the Central Group, which will be seen as a massive failure for all involved with the side.

In their last match, the Rapids lost by 6 wickets to the Birmingham Bears in Worcester on Sunday. After posting 178/4, Worcestershire struggled to contain their opponents, with the Bears winning with 5 balls to spare.

Jake Libby top scored for the Rapids with 63. That was the third time this campaign that Libby has top scored for his side.
