It is the 56th game in the Royal London One-Day Cup, 2022, and hosts Lancashire will be up against Northamptonshire. Lancashire has done well, and the side comes into this game with a big win against Glamorgan. It has been an ordinary season for Northamptonshire and they went down against Worcestershire in their last game.   

Lancashire has looked brilliant form right through this tournament and has lost only once. Their batsmen have done well, and the bowlers have complemented with good lines on challenging tracks. Northamptonshire needs to play the catchup game here and they have to produce a special performance to win here. 

Lancashire Preview

Keaton Jennings’ side comes into this contest with a massive win against Glamorgan. In a one-sided contest, the side won by 9 wickets and earned a place for themselves in the next round. Jennings would look to build on this momentum as they play a side that has been struggling for form. A win would put them in the right frame of mind for the games ahead.  

Keaton Jennings and Luke Wells batted brilliantly in the last game, and they would look for a similar performance in this game. Josh Bohannon also looked good, and he adds strength to the middle order with Steven Croft and Rob Jones. The side would also expect to see runs from the bats of George Balderson and George Lavelle down the order.   

Their bowling attack has been one of the best in this tournament. Tom Bailey and Luke Williamson bowled brilliantly in the last game, and they would look for early breakthroughs in this contest. Liam Hurt, Danny Lamb, and George Balderson make it a well-balanced attack which will add to the side’s confidence.  

Lancashire Predicted Playing XI:

Keaton Jennings (c), Luke Wells, Josh Bohannon, Steven Croft, Rob Jones, George Balderson, George Lavelle (wk), Danny Lamb, Tom Bailey, Luke Williamson, Liam Hurt

Northamptonshire Preview

Will Young’s side is almost out of contention for a berth in the quarterfinal after their 6-wicket loss against Worcestershire in the last game. They still have a remote chance of progressing further in the tournament based on results of other games. Young would look for a big win here to salvage lost pride and do well against a strong team.   

Ricardo Vasconcelos played well in the last game, and he will have to set up a big opening wicket stand with Emilio Gay. Young looked good against Worcestershire with his hundred and he will need to build partnerships with Saif Zaib and Lewis McManus. Gus Miller and James Sales must play good knocks down the order as Lancashire have a strong bowling attack.  

Ben Sanderson has done well for the side this season and he will need good support at the other end from Jack White in this game. James Sales and Brandon Glover will need to keep a check on the scoring rate in the middle overs of the game. The side would need tight spells from Zaib and Alex Russell as Lancashire have a strong batting unit.  

Northamptonshire Predicted Playing XI:

Will Young (c), Ricardo Vasconcelos, Emilio Gay, Saif Zaib, Lewis McManus (wk), James Sales, Gus Miller, Brandon Glover, Ben Sanderson, Jack White, Alex Russell

Weather Conditions

The skies would be clear over Blackpool on August 19, and we expect to see a flat track here as we had seen in the past. There would be lots of scoring opportunities for the batsmen and bowlers are expected to have a tough outing. The side that bats first in the game shall be eying a score of 320 runs. 

Venue Details

Stanley Park, Blackpool is a small ground, and this has served as a paradise for the batsmen. We have seen big scores being made at this venue in the past. However, the track also offers good assistance to the fast bowlers with the new ball. Spinners find it tough at this venue due to the small size of the boundaries. 

Toss: To Bat

Most teams have preferred to bat first in One-Day games here. In the past, we have seen high scores being put up at this venue in the past. Chasing scores can be tricky as the wicket tends to slow down as the game progresses. The side winning the toss here should have little hesitation in batting first.

It will be a game between two sides in contrasting forms. Northamptonshire has won just two games and the side has suffered due to the inconsistency of its batsmen. They will have to come up with a strong performance to win this game. Lancashire looks in good shape and they have their batsmen in good form and a strong bowling attack. This will make them favourites in this game.
