As the English One-Day Cup 2021 moves forward, we will witness a clash between Essex and Worcestershire in Group A. The two teams are unbeaten in this tournament so far, which implies that one of the teams will not have the same record at the end of this match, provided the game doesn’t get washed out or tied. 

Essex started their campaign with a win against Hampshire by three wickets and later went on to beat Middlesex by nine wickets, which was a dominant performance. Worcestershire, on the other hand, started their tournament with a win against Kent and then defeated Gloucestershire in their second fixture.

ESS vs WOR Risky Captaincy Choices:

Alastair Cook got an unbeaten 92 in the previous match, but his form is a bit unreliable, considering he hasn’t played a lot of competitive cricket. Hence, he will be a risky pick for captaincy.

James Porter is a good player to have in your fantasy team, but given he only bowls, it will be risky to pick him as the captain.

Player you should avoid:

Michael-Kyle Pepper is very young into his list A career and this will be only his third match. It is better to avoid him.
