lancs vs sus Match Prediction & Analysis

Royal London One-Day Cup has made a comeback for the seventh season after missing out last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The tournament looks unappealing due to many key players missing owing to their commitments in the Hundred. Lancashire had a brilliant warm-up match with a dominating performance with bat and ball. Sussex too had all their bases covered in the warm-up fixture. Lancashire has never beaten Sussex after 2007 and will be eager to end it in this match. But they have faced off just 5 times with 2 matches being abandoned in the time frame.

Teams Preview

Lancashire Preview

Lancashire will have one of the strongest batting units with the likes of Keaton Jennings and young Josh Bohannan at the top. Luke Wells, Dane Vilas, Steven Croft, and Rob Jones will join together to form an experienced middle order batting combination any team will envy of in the current situation.

Their bowling is hardly hit with a lot of first choice players missing. Jack Blatherwick, Liam Hurt, and Danny Lamb are expected to form the pace department with no player having more than 10 List-A match experience. Steven Croft, Luke Wells, and Jack Morley will form the spin department of the team.

Top players to bet on:

Keaton Jennings – Jennings continued his T20I form into the warm-up fixture to score a century against Cumberland. He will be eager to prove his worth in the one-day format too in this season.

Luke Wells – Luke Wells had an all-round performance in the warm-up game with 86 runs and 3 wickets. He will be important member in their team to provide depth and balance to the playing XI.  

Lancashire Predicted Playing XI:

Keaton Jennings, Josh Bohannan, Luke Wells, Dane Vilas (C), Steven Croft, Rob Jones, Jack Blatherwick, Liam Hurt, Danny Lamb, Jack Morley, George Lavelle (Wk)

Sussex Preview

Sussex will rely heavily on the experienced duo of Tom Haines and Travis Head in the batting department. Harrison Ward, Tom Clark, James Coles, Ali Orr, and Oliver Crater are having a combined experience of less than 25 list- A matches so far.  They need to bat sensibly and help their team post a good score.

They have the most inexperienced bowling attack with 3-4 players yet to make their List-A debut so far. Pace trio of James Coles, Joseph Sarro, and Henry Crombie are all set make their List-A debut alongside 16-year spin prodigy Archie Lenham in this match. Will Beer is expected to be their most experienced player in the bowling attack.

Top players to bet on:

Travis Head – Head has a vast experience of playing in the big stages and he had a good outing in the warm-up match with 55 runs and 3 wickets. We expect him to carry forward his momentum in the first match too.  

Archie Lenham – Lenham impressed everyone with his leg spinners and googlies in the T20 blast claiming 10 wickets at an economy rate of 7.7 RPO.  We expect him to make a huge mark in the one-day matches too.

Sussex Predicted Playing XI:

Tom Haines (c), Harrison Ward, Travis Head, Tom Clark, James Coles, Ali Orr, Oliver Crater, James Coles, Joseph Sarro, Henry Crombie, Archie Lenham, Will Beer

Weather Conditions

Venue Details

Sedbergh School Ground is all set to make it`s Royal London debut and it is said to be one of prettiest grounds in the county. The green track promises some assistance for the faster bowlers with the new ball. We expect scores around 250-260 runs in this match.

Toss: To Bowl

Chasing is the best option as teams will be unaware of the pitch on offer in the very first match. We expect the both captains to take the safe option in this match.        

LANCS vs SUS Winning Prediction

Lancashire have a quality batting line-up with experienced players in the top and middle order alongside a couple of young players.  Their bowlers are a bit inexperienced but have fared better than their counterparts in terms of experience. Sussex is one of hard hit teams owing to the Hundred as they have number of debutants in this season. They lack experience in both batting and bowling departments and can leave them struggling in crunch situations. We expect Lancashire to win this match.

LANCASHIRE will win the match
