Teams Preview

Durham Preview

Durham began the 196-run chase on a superb fashion with David Bedingham (65 runs) and Graham Clark (39 runs) going all guns blazing with a 73-run partnership. Their middle order suffered a mini collapse from 73/0 to 96/5. Lower order players Paul Coughlin, Brydan Crase, and Liam Tresvaskis put on a fight with 20+ cameos but eventually fell short by 13 runs.

Matty Potts and P Coghlin claimed 2 wickets inside 3 overs to give a good start but their bowling unit was taken to cleaners for the next 12 overs. Ben Raine intervened with a couple of wickets in 16th over and ended with figures of 4-0-29-2 in the match. All the other regular bowlers went for over 10 RPO and ended up giving 195 runs in their 20 overs.  

Top players to bet on:

David Bedingam – David has scores of 38 & 65 in the last 2 matches and he set the tempo for the chase in both matches with attacking knocks at a strike rate of 150+. We expect him to make yet another aggressive knock at the top in this match too.

Ben Raine – Ben Raine has been their most successful bowler with 7 wickets in 3 matches with bowling figures of 2/29, 3/19, & 2/17 so far. He is also giving runs at an economy rate of less than 6 RPO.

Graham Clark, David Bedingham, Ben Raine, Cameron Bancroft (c), Ned Eckersley (wk), Jack Burnham, Paul Coughlin, Brydon Carse, Liam Trevaskis, Scott Borthwick, Matty Potts

Venue Details

Riverside Ground is a high scoring ground and we can expect a run feasts in this match. Bowlers must execute their plans to perfection on this track. We expect average scores around 180-200 runs in this match.

Toss: To Bat

Both matches played here has been won by the teams batting first despite captains choosing to chase down the total. we expect to the trend to change and captains to bat first in this match.  

DUR vs LANCS Winning Prediction

Lancashire batting unit is in red hot from with their top-3 firing consistently and their middle order scoring vital runs in the crucial junctures. Durham batting unit too has been consistent but lacks the big hitters like Lancashire team.   Both teams have a slightly inexperienced bowling attack but Lancashire have an edge in spin department with the likes of Parkinson and Livingstone. We expect Lancashire to win this match.

LANCASHIRE will win the match
