Lancashire stumbled to 34/3 inside the power play and Keaton Jennings rebuild with his 37 runs with the bat. Rob Jones (61 runs) and Steven Croft (41 runs) took the attack to the opposition with aggressive batting but fell short of the target by 9 runs with 3 wickets falling in the final over.

They will miss the services of Saqib Mahmood and Matt Parkinson for the remainder of the league games. Danny Lamb and Tom Bailey is expected to partner Luke wood in the pace department. They will rely on the collective efforts of Steven Croft, Luke Wells, and Tom Hartley in the spin department as they miss their premier spinner.

Top players to bet on:

Finn Allen – Finn Allen has 245 runs at a strike rate of 140 with 2 fifties so far.  He is having a couple of quite matches with the bat after a brilliant start to the season. We expect him to regain his good form with the bat in this match.

Tom Hartley – Hartley has 9 wickets at an excellent economy rate of 6.2 RPO. His ability to tie the runs at one end in the middle overs has been a big positive for his team in this season till now.

Northamptonshire Preview

Northampton openers Ricardo (60 runs) and Ben Curran (62 runs) set the tempo of match with their 101-run partnership at the top. Their middle order slightly lost the plot in late overs as they settled down for 173 runs despite an explosive start. Rob Keogh has been effective in the middle order with Saif Zaib and Mohammed nabi below par so far.  

Northampton bowling trio of Mohammed Nabi (2 wickets), Tom Taylor (2 wickets), and Greame White (4 wickets) owned the day with 8 wickets between themselves and choked the opposition to 48/6 in the first 8 overs.  Brandon Glover chipped in with a wicket as they bowled out the opposition for just 143 runs.

Top players to bet on:

Graeme White – White ran through the middle order with figures of 4/26 and dismissed No. 4 to No.7 batsmen of the opposition last game. He has 14 wickets at an economy rate of 7.7 RPO this season so far.

Ben Curran – Curran impressed everyone with his 62 runs off 33 balls with 11 boundaries and a six in his second match this season. He will look to play a pivotal role in helping his team qualify for the knockouts.

Weather Conditions

Manchester will have dark and cloudy weather on the match day with 50-60% chances of rain. We expect the rain to make a mark in this match and might bring DLS equation into consideration.

Venue Details

Manchester has been a good sporting wicket with some assistance for the bowlers. We expect the average scores in this venue to be around 160-170 runs and the pitch might slightly slowdown in the second innings.

Toss: To Bat

Teams batting first has won 2 out of the 4 matches and lost just one game. The pitch might slow down and this might make the captains to bat first but rain clouds might change their mind on the eve of the match.

LANCS vs NORTH Winning Prediction

Lancashire have been superb in their home conditions and are unbeaten so far but are coming into this match losing a couple of their key bowlers. They also need to overcome their recent slump in form with just one win in last 6 matches. Northamptonshire have momentum on their side with two back-to-back wins with both their batting and bowling unit’s performing well together.  They have a slight edge as they did not lose any players for this match and we expect them to breach the Home fortress of Lancashire in this match.

Northamptonshire will win the match.
