Vitality Blast 2019 is now on its last legs, with every team having played at least 11 of their 14 matches. Whereas at least one team from North Division have cemented a place in quarterfinals, South Division is still open.
Lancashire Lightning have already qualified for the quarterfinals with 16 points. Worcestershire Rapids, Notts Outlaws, and Derbyshire Falcons are favorites for the other three spots. However, all the teams in the North Group have mathematical chances to qualify as only six points are separating the second placed Worcestershire from the team at the bottom, Northamptonshire.
Apart from Hampshire and Essex Eagles, all teams from South Group have played 12 games so far. Glamorgan have been already eliminated but all the other teams can qualify with at least a couple of matches in hand. Fourth and fifth placed Somerset and Middlesex are just two points behind the second and third placed Gloucestershire and Kent Spitfires. Teams at sixth, seventh, and eighth place have ten points each with fair mathematical chances.
