DUR vs NOT Dream11 Prediction: Durham vs Nottinghamshire – 29 August 2020. Durham will take on Notts Outlaws in the League Match of Vitality Blast T20 which will be played at the Riverside Ground in Chester-le-Street. The T20 cricket is finally back in England and nothing better than some T20 Blast cricket.
Outlaws are a star-studded side and they will be looking to capture the title this time around as they lost in the semi-final stages last year. The likes of Alex Hales, Daniel Christian, and Samit Patel will definitely boost the chances of this side. The first game of the Notts was abandoned due to rain and they would like to get on the field this time around.
Durham lost their first game of the tournament and that was actually the first game that took place on the first day. Durham also has some really good players in their ranks and this can be a good game.
Pitch Report – The average 1st innings T20 score at this stadium is 157 runs which suggests that this is going to be a bowling friendly wicket.
