NOR vs DUR Match 10 North Group Predictions & Betting Tips

The fifth edition of the Vitality Blast (T20 Blast) is underway from May 25, and it's time for match number ten between Northamptonshire and Durham. The match will be played at the County Ground in Northampton and will commence from 11 PM IST on Friday, May 27.

Northamptonshire had a dismal first outing wherein they lost Birmingham Bears by a massive 125-run (D/L method) margin. For Durham, things went smooth in their season-opener as they thrashed Leicestershire by 54 runs.

In the last season, both Durham and Northamptonshire had failed to qualify for the quarter-finals. Durham had finished seventh in the North Group, winning just five out of their 14 matches. Northamptonshire could manage only four wins from their 14 league matches and ended their 2021 campaign at the bottom of the 9-team North Group.

In the Vitality Blast 2022, Durham are currently occupying the second spot, while Northamptonshire, who are looking for their first win again occupying the last spot in the North Group. As we gear up for the eleventh match, I have brought you the best three betting tips from the NOR vs DUR match 11 head-to-head encounter.

NOR vs DUR Team Bet:

Mentioned below is the top team bet from the NOR vs DUR head-to-head contest.

Durham to win

Durham and Northamptonshire have played a total of 20 T20 matches against each other and the latter leads the head-to-head record 9-8. Northamptonshire have been the superior team among the two during their last five encounters as well. They are leading the tally 3-2, having won all their last three matches against Durham.

But Durham and not Northamptonshire will walk into the match as the favourites. The reasons are simple. Northamptonshire, who finished at the bottom of North Group points table, have lost their last three matches in the tournament. The Josh Cobb-led was rather thrashed than beaten in their tournament opener on Thursday. Chasing a 207-run target, they were bundled out for 81 in 14.2 overs as they lost the match by 125 runs (D/L method). The thrashing will take some time to recover as Northamptonshire were already under the pump after a dismal show in 2021.

Durham, on the other hand, have strongly kicked off their campaign after losing their last two matches in the Vitality Blast 2021 (T20 Blast T20I). The Ashton Turner-led side were at the top of their game in their opener and played as a unit. No batsman from the team scored a fifty but a target of 185-run was posted for Leicestershire. Later, each of the six bowlers used in match picked at least a wicket as Leicestershire were bundled out for 130 in just 17.5 overs.

Leader of the pace attack Paul Coughlin picked four wickets after spending just 15 runs in three overs. Young left-arm spinner Liam Trevaskis chipped in with two wickets, while captain Ashton Turner also picked up a wicket after bowling two overs for 13 runs in the match. In the batting department, opener Graham Clark (36), Ashton Turner (32) and Paul Coughlin (42) set the tone for the team.

Problem is plenty for Northamptonshire. Eight of their players registered a single-digit score. Chris Lynn, their star batsman upon whom the team relies heavily, top-scored with 16 runs. The bowlers leaked 207 runs and managed to take only three wickes. Ben Sanderson, their most successful bowler, took two wickets but only after leaking 42 runs in 4 overs.

Durham have managed only two wins over Northamptonshire at the County Ground in Northampton, but that should not bother them at least on Friday. If you feel the same, head over to Pari Match to grab the odds of 1.76 and place your bet on Durham from the NOR vs DUR head-to-head encounter.

NOR vs DUR Player Bet:

Chris Lynn and Ashton Turner are my top two player betting tips for the NOR vs DUR eleventh match. Have a look at it for reaping the best returns.

Chris Lynn to score under 25.5 runs

Chris Lynn, the hard-hitting, Australian batsman is going through a tough phase in his career. Playing his first professional match after January 2022, Lynn could manage only 16 runs as his team Northamptonshire lost their opening Vitality Blast 2022 match by 125 runs.

The 32-year-old, who last represented Australia in 2018, was out of action after the Big Bash League 2021-22. In a forgettable season the right-hander scored 215 runs at an average of 17.91 in 12 matches. The performance forced Brisbane Heat to end their 11-year long association with Chris Lynn, BBL's all-time leading run-scorer. The opener also went unsold during the IPL 2022 mega auctions.

In his last ten outings, Lynn has scores of --16, 19, 7, 28, 7, 13, 2, 57, 10 and 4. Overall, he has played 231 T20 matches and scored 6156 runs at an average of 30.47.

However, considering his current form and lack of experience of playing in England, the Brisbane-born had never played a T20 match in England before Thursday and will find it really hard to score over 25.5 runs against a spirited Durham outfit. If you feel the same, proceed to Pari Match and pick the odds of 1.87 for Chris Lynn to score under 25.5 runs from the NOR vs DUR head-to-head encounter.

Ashton Turner to score over 20.5 runs

Ashton Turner has made a name for himself in the T20 circuit and that's the reason why Durham signed him as their captain for the ongoing Vitality Blast 2022 (T20 Blast 2022). The stylish right-hander led his team Perth Scorchers to their fourth BBL title after beating Sydney Sixers by 79 runs in the BBL 2021-22 final.

On the night of the final, Turner led from the front and hit a crucial fifty for his team to accumulate 54 off just 35 balls. Overall, the 29-year-old scored 357 runs at an average of 32.45 in 16 matches. His strike-rate during the period was a massive 153.87.

The Australian international played two List A games after the completion of the BBL 2021-22 but did not make any massive impact. He registered two single digit scores of 9 and 0. However, he was back to doing what he does best when he walked in the first match for Durham on Thursday. He slammed 32 runs off just 18 balls (2 fours and 3 sixes) to fire his team to 184 in 20 overs.

Turner's last 10 white-ball innings have seen him score -- 32, 0 (List A), 9 (List A), 54, 0*, 18*, 28, 47*, 69 and 8. Overall, the Perth-born has played 132 T20 matches, scoring 1920 runs at an average of 22.06. He has nine fifties to his name in the T20 format. With T20 World Cup 2022 round the corner, the all-rounder will be looking to give it his all to book a spot in the Australia squad for the mega event.

Scoring over 20.5 runs should not at all be a problem for Ashton Turner. Our affiliate partner Pari Match is offering the odds of 1.87 for the same. So waste no time and head to the Pari Match website to place your bet on Ashton Turner from the NOR vs DUR head-to-head encounter.
