The game between Worcestershire and Yorkshire will be a do-or-die game for both the teams considering their performances in the North Group thus far. Worcester team has won four of their six matches and are placed at No.4 in the points table. They need at least one more win from the last two games to make it to the playoffs. Victories in the last two matches will confirm their berth without relying on the results of remaining matches.
On the other hand, Yorkshire kept their playoff hopes alive following their win against the Northamptonshire in a rain-affected game. Yorkshire won only two of their six matches while two games ended without a result. They need to win both their matches from here on to finish in the top three. Yorkshire would be going down if they stand equal with 10 points as other teams gain edge having won more games.
The 2019 Royal London One-Day Cup game between Worcestershire CC and Yorkshire CC in the North Group will be played at the New Road in Worcester.
The match starts at 11:00 AM local time (3:30 PM IST) (10:00 AM GMT).

Captain and Vice-Captain Selection:

Keeper – Jonny Tattersall
Batsmen – Tom Kohler-Cadmore, Harry Brook (VC), Riki Wessels, Tom Fell
All-Rounders – Daryl Mitchell, Ed Barnard
Bowlers – Mathew Pillans, Josh Poysden, Wayne Parnell (C), Charlie Morris

Bowlers – Steven Patterson, Duanne Ollivier, Wayne Parnell, Josh Tongue
This game is worthy in filling with top-order batsmen but only on a regular Worcester track. However, the conditions over the last few days in Worcester don’t inject any confidence in making such a move. The nature of the track could make or break any fantasy team.
Worcestershire is expected to make use of playing at home against the Yorkshire.
