Whether you’re a seasoned veteran, or completely new to the shortest format, you can be sure that T20 Blast cricket is a thrilling sight to behold. Having won the first tournament in 2014, Birmingham Bears again reached the final in 2017, where they were defeated by Notts Outlaws.
With a fabulous and talented squad featuring the likes of England star Chris Woakes, Olly Stone and captain Jeetan Patel, the Bears are likely to be in the hunt for honours again and will be amongst the favourites to progress to the Finals once more. Opponents Worcestershire Rapids exceeded all expectations last year by winning the Vitality T20 Blast competition, so this is sure to be a thrilling encounter!
We are delighted to offer a great value hospitality package in the salubrious Wyatt Suite for this compelling derby match which includes food, complimentary drinks and superb balcony viewing for the match.
Birmingham Bears v Worcestershire Rapids: The two old Midlands rivals face off once more in what promises to be a fascinating encounter replete with explosive big-hitting, canny bowling and spectacular fielding. Last year the Bears suffered a defeat at the hands of the Rapids in a thrilling high-scoring match, with the Worcestershire team sealing victory on the back of a brilliant 115 off just 56 balls from England star Moeen Ali, as the Bears came up agonisingly short on 194-7 chasing 209-5. With over 400 runs scored in the designated 40 overs in the match, this was T20 blast cricket at its very best. The Bears made a valiant attempt to chase down such a huge total with all top seven batsmen reaching double figures, but ultimately, they came up just short. Revenge is very much on the cards!
The Wyatt Suite: Our top-class facility at Edgbaston is the pitch-facing Wyatt Suite, which offers some of the best views of the action, both from within the suite and from the superb viewing balcony seats immediately outside. This intimate facility offers great attention to detail and service for our maximum 80 guests at a great value price.
