WRW vs LAN Team Previews

Birmingham Bears

After the last season of Vitality T20 Blast ended in a lot of drama, the Lancashire Lightning cricket team is in no mood to relent in this campaign. They have made a terrific statement this season with three wins from three games. Their batting appears to be rock solid and the addition of overseas players such as Colin de Grandhomme and Daryl Mitchell from New Zealand has added a lot of firepower to the Lancashire batting. Similar to the last season they also have the services of Phil Salt, Liam Livingstone, and Steven Croft at their disposal.

All these batsmen mentioned above have delivered for Lancashire. It is a fact that Lancashire Lightning has one of the better teams in this 21st edition of the T20 Blast. Thanks to this strong line-up they have made a solid start to their campaign by winning their first 3 games. They are leading the North Group with 6 points and have a great net run rate of +2.024. As far as the powerplay overs are concerned they have scored 58, 58, and 77 runs in their last 3 games. This averages 64.33 runs per game in powerplays.

Most of the batting in these games was handled by the top batters mentioned above. In their last match of the competition, they were up against Nottinghamshire. Batting first, Lancashire scored 208 runs for the loss of 4 wickets. Nottinghamshire could manage 186 runs for the loss of 5 wickets in their reply. Although their opposition made a game effort for winning this match, they fell 22 runs shy of the target. Daryl Mitchell with a belligerent 85 from 41 balls was the star of the show with the bat. There were some useful contributions from batsmen such as Phil Salt, Luke Wells, and the skipper Liam Livingstone.

The Warwickshire side did not win the competition last year or did not even reach the finals. But they had a decent 9-5 record in the competition last year. The Birmingham outfit will be mighty pleased with the way things have started for them in this year's edition of T20 Blast. Similar to Lancashire, the Bears have also won both their games and secured a spot next to Lancashire in the points tally. These two sides have faced each other 16 times and Lancashire holds the edge in the head-to-head. They also won the last game played between the two sides.

Birmingham Bears played their last game against Leicestershire and succeeded in maintaining their 100% record in the competition with a 5-wicket win against the Foxes at the Upstonsteel County Ground. The bad start for the Leicestershire team and their misfortunes continued in this match. They managed to score a mediocre score of 166 runs for the loss of 7 wickets on a beautiful pitch where the team of Blaze had hit 212 runs from 20 overs. This target was well within the grasp of the Birmingham Bears.

Glenn Maxwell crunched a muscular 47 from 27 balls as his team reached the score of 167 runs with 15 balls to spare. Sam Hain followed the big innings in the opening game with another 65 from 43 balls. It was only Callum Parkinson who could interfere with the chase. The Bears raced to 22 runs from just 13 balls during their replay. But this charge was halted by Parkinson. He developed an opportunity for Leicestershire with his bowling but all their bowling attack discovered that bowling to Maxwell and Hain when they are in this kind of form is extremely tough.
