Jack Haynes is a good captaincy option for this match.

WOR vs MID Risky captaincy Choices
Sam Robson got off to a start in his previous innings but could not kick on and score a big one. He is a good risky captaincy choice for this match.
Jake Libby’s previous innings ended with a runout, and he departed for just 3 runs. Libby is a dangerous batsman once he gets going.
