LAN vs NOR Team Previews


Lancashire made a slow start to its campaign but seems to be peaking just at the right time. They have won 4 of their last 5 completed matches, while their latest game was abandoned. As a result, Lancashire is 2nd on the North Group points table. A win here will take them through to the quarterfinals. But if they do lose, they will have to jostle for the spot with a couple of other teams, who are close behind.

Openers Phil Salt and Jos Buttler will be looking to give the team a strong start here. Salt has had a relatively quiet season by his standards but Buttler has picked up good form in the last few matches and will play an important role here. Lancashire has a strong middle order as players like Luke Wells, Liam Livingstone, Steven Croft, and Daryl Mitchell have all played some good innings.

Mitchell is particularly brilliant with the bat as well as the ball. He has bowled well in tandem with Luke Wood, who is the leading wicket-taker for the team. The spin attack consists of all-rounders Luke Wells, Liam Livingstone, and Tom Hartley.

With 12 points from 13 matches, Northamptonshire has just a theoretical chance of making it to the quarterfinals. Even if they do win here, the team will need plenty of other results to go their way too, which is highly improbable.

The batting has been a bit of a letdown for Northamptonshire this season. Except for Ricardo Vasconcelos, Chris Lynn, and Saif Zaib, none of the batsmen have been consistent for the team. Opener Emilio Gay has got some good starts but hasn’t been able to convert them into a big inning on most occasions.

The same can be said about Lewis McManus and Justin Broad. David Willey is a handy player for the team and will play an important role here. He will be a part of the pace attack along with Andrew Tye, Ben Sanderson, Tom Taylor, and Justin Broad.

The spin department is a bit lacking though as Freddie Heldreich is the lone specialist spinner on the team.

Pitch and Conditions

The pitch at Old Trafford is well-balanced, providing equal opportunities to the batters as well as the bowlers. There will be some movement for the quicker bowlers and the batsmen will need to be careful while playing the big shots. The spinners will come into action in the second half of the match.

Anything over 170 will be difficult to chase here. There is a forecast of rain here which may lead to some interruptions.

Both, Lancashire and Northamptonshire, haven’t been very consistent with their performances so far. However, we are backing Lancashire to come out on top here. They have a stronger batting order and the bowling looks to be in good shape too, especially in the spin department.
