In Worcestershire's recent game against Lancashire, Lancashire chose to bat after winning the toss. They had a poor start, losing four wickets in the PowerPlay. However, a partnership of 98 runs between Rob Jones and Jos Buttler helped Lancashire reach a total of 164 runs for the loss of eight wickets in 20 overs. Patrick Brown was the standout bowler for Worcestershire, taking three wickets for 32 runs in three overs. In their chase, Worcestershire also had a shaky start, losing their first wicket early. Mitchell Santner, who was promoted up the batting order, and Jack Haynes formed an 81-run partnership for the third wicket.

Nottinghamshire's previous match was against Leicestershire on Tuesday, where they won the toss and elected to bat. Joe Clarke continued his good form in the season by scoring another half-century, helping Nottinghamshire reach a total of 165 runs for the loss of eight wickets in 20 overs. Apart from Clarke, no other batter crossed the 30-run mark for Nottinghamshire. Tom Scriven was exceptional with the ball, taking four wickets for 21 runs in four overs, while Callum Parkinson dismissed three Nottinghamshire batters, conceding 22 runs in his four overs. Nick Welch and Peter Handscomb provided a solid opening partnership of 63 runs for Leicestershire. However, they lost a few wickets during the middle overs, which affected their run rate.
