WAR vs DUR Match 16 North Group Predictions & Betting Tips

The 20th edition of the T20 Blast is underway from May 25, and it's time for match number sixteen between Warwickshire and Durham (WAR vs DUR). The match will be played at Edgbaston in Birmingham and will commence from 7 PM IST on Sunday, May 29. Warwickshire (Birmingham Bears) have won their first two matches, while Durham won their series-opener before losing their second match to Northamptonshire.

In the last season, Warwickshire had finished third in the North group to qualify for the quarter-finals where they lost by 21 runs to Kent. Durham, on the other hand, failed to advance to the knockout stages after winning only five of their 14 league stage matches. In the Vitality Blast 2022, Warwickshire (Birmingham Bears) are leading the North Group points table by winning both their matches, while Durham are placed third. As we gear up for match 16 of the English T20 league, I have brought you the best three betting tips from the WAR vs DUR match 16 head-to-head encounter.

WAR vs DUR Team Bet:

Mentioned below is the top team bet from the WAR vs DUR head-to-head contest.

Warwickshire to win

Durham have won three of their last five matches against Warwickshire, however the latter leads the overall head-to-head record 8-4. At Edgbaston, both the teams have squared off six times, winning and losing three matches each. On Sunday, Warwickshire look set to break their two-match losing streak against Durham by registering their third win on the bounce in Vitality Blast 2022. The Carlos Brathwaite-led side are looking ruthless in their approach, beating Northamptonshire by 125-run. The side also managed to pull off a three-run win in a high-scoring encounter against a well rounded Durham led by Shan Masood. Warwickshire batting unit has looked good with senior batsman Paul Stirling scoring 119 off 51 and 29 off 17 from the two innings so far. Adam Hose and Chris Benjamin scored 55 and 43 runs in the last match. Carlos Brathwaite will soon or later join the party. The bowling unit consisting of in-form pacer Sam Conners, Danny Briggs, Jake Lintott and captain Brathwaite himself are more than able to leave an impact on a game. Lintott and Briggs are the joint second-highest wicket-takers in the ongoing tournament. The side is shaping up well in the tournament. Durham were also convincing in their first win against Leicestershire but lost the plot in the second match against Northamptonshire. The bowlers struggled as out-of-form Chris Lynn and Ben Curran stitched a 149-run opening partnership. Later, they lost the match despite posting 114 runs for three wickets in 9.5 overs. The side could not even bat for the entire 20 overs and were bundled out for 192 in 18.5 overs to lose the match by 31 runs. The momentum and home condition will be in the favour of Warwickshire against Durham on Sunday and if you feel the same, head over to Pari Match to grab the odds of 1.79 and place your bet on Surrey from the LEI vs DER head-to-head encounter.

WAR vs DUR Player Bet:

Paul Stirling and Ashton Turner are my top two player betting tips for the WAR vs DUR fifteenth match. Have a look at it for reaping the best returns.

Paul Stirling to score over 24.5 runs

Four years ago, Paul Stirling hit his first Vitality Blast hundred while representing Middlesex. The season saw him score 498 runs in 14 matches at an average of 35.77. Along with the solitary hundred, the Ireland international also scored a four fifties. He shined in the tournament two years later in 2022, scoring 232 in 10 matches at 25.77 for Northamptonshire this time. In 2022, Paul Stirling hit a hundred on his debut for Warwickshire and looks set for big things in this season. The Whirlwind 119-run knock off just 51 balls was followed by 29 off 17 versus Derbyshire on Friday. Scoring over 24.5 runs against Durham on Sunday, is a very likely scenario for Stirling. The white-ball warm up for the tournament was done by Paul Sterling during his two outings in the Cricket Ireland Inter-Provincial Limited Over Cup earlier this month. Earlier in February, Paul Sterling featured for his country in the ICC Men's T20 World Cup Qualifier A. There, he scored 116 runs at an average of 23.20 in five matches. He had top-scored for Ireland in the T20 World Cup 2021 as well. The right-hander scored 75 runs in three matches at an average of 37.50. Overall, Paul Stirling, who has played 241 (3 Tests, 136 ODIs and 102 T20Is) matches for Ireland and scored 7927 runs (104 in Tests, 5047 in ODIs and 2776 in T20Is) from them. In the 278 T20 matches Sterling has played so far, he has scored 7100 runs at an average of 26.99. The Belfast-born has three hundreds and 47 fifties to his name in the format. The star batsman is easily expected to score over 24.5 runs.

Ashton Turner to score over 19.5 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. In the next match against Northamptonshire, he looked in the zone while racing to 21 off just seven balls. He had hit three fours and a six during the 201-run chase when a shoulder injury forced him to walk off the field. Durham lost the match by three runs and Turner must be raring to make up for the lost opportunity. Turner's last 10 white-ball innings have seen him score -- 21* (retired hurt), 32, 0 (List A), 9 (List A), 54, 0*, 18*, 28, 47* and 69. Overall, the Perth-born has played 133 T20 matches, scoring 1941 runs at an average of 22.31. He has nine fifties to his name in the T20 format. With the 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 WAR vs DUR head-to-head encounter.
