The Vitality T20 Blast 2022 has got off to a good and in this North Group game, the Lancashire Lightning and Derbyshire Falcons would be fighting for supremacy. The winner of this game can reach the top of the points table. Lightning comes here with a big win against the Notts Outlaws while the Falcons also played well to defeat the Yorkshire Vikings in their last game.
Lancashire Lightning has dominated the Derbyshire Falcons in the last two seasons and has won all the four games between the two teams. The side is playing at home, and this would be an advantage for them. The Falcons have struggled with the form of their middle-order batsmen, and they will have to fix this area to defeat Lancashire Lightning in this game.
Dane Vilas’ side has registered back-to-back wins. It was a solid performance from the side in the last game against the Notts Outlaws where they won by 87 runs coming on the back of an excellent bowling performance. They have not lost a game against Derbyshire in the last two seasons and Vilas would like to extend that record with a good performance in this game.
The side has its openers Keaton Jennings and Philip Salt in good form, and they would look to set up a good opening wicket stand. In the middle order, Tim David and Liam Livingstone add solidity to the line-up with both players having their range of strokes. Lightning has depth in their batting, and they would like to see runs from the bats of Vilas, Steven Croft, and Danny Lamb in this game.
They bowled out the Outlaws for 91 runs in the last game and the side would take heart from that bowling performance. Richard Gleeson and Tom Hartley shall have to do well as Derbyshire has done well with the bat at the tip. Luke Wood, Livingstone, and Matthew Parkinson shall look to take advantage of the conditions here and bowl the side to a win.

Shan Masood registered a 9-wicket win in their last game against the Yorkshire Vikings. In a rain-reduced game that was cut to 8 overs per side, the Falcons bowled brilliantly and chased down the score without much of a problem. This would be a bigger challenge for the team with their poor record against Lancashire and Masood would like to see a spirited performance from his players.
Shan Masood has looked in good form and he will have to set up a good opening wicket stand with Luis Reece. Harry Came, Wayne Madsen, and Brook Guest will have to do well in the middle order as these players haven’t been at their best. The form of Hayden Kerr and Leus du Plooy down the order would add to the side’s confidence in this game.
The bowling attack looks in good shape and the team would like to see early wickets from Madsen and Kerr in this game. Mark Watt adds strength to this bowling attack along with Matt McKiernan. The side would look for a good show in the supporting roles from Samuel Conners and George Scrimshaw as they are up against a powerful batting line-up.

The skies over Manchester would see cloud cover on June 01 and there are chances of rains during the game. Batting conditions are expected to be challenging as the bowlers would get the ball to move. The side batting first in the game would be happy with a score of 170 runs on the board.
Old Trafford, Manchester has a flat surface, and the ball comes onto the bat nicely. Batsmen can play their strokes on the rise on this surface. There is assistance for the fast bowlers with the new ball as it moved around. The ground has been a good one for the spinners as they can get the ball to grip and turn on this track.
The wicket at Old Trafford is known for big scores and batsmen have always found it easy to score runs on this track. More teams have won games here batting first and we expect this to influence the decision at the toss. The side winning the toss would have no hesitation in opting to bat first.
Derbyshire Falcons have done well in the season so far, but they meet their biggest challenge in this game. The side would be worried about the form of its middle order as they haven’t delivered the goods so far. The Lancashire Lightning are in good form, and they have enjoyed an excellent record at this venue. The side has good firepower with the bat, and this would make them favorites to win here.
