Match Preview

It’s been quite a slump for Yorkshire who have now lost three games in a row to fall from a semifinal opportunist to a team that’s nearly on the brink of elimination. Clearly, it’s must-win territory and they’ll be up against a confident Lancashire outfit who have managed to find the winning formula in the tournament.

A top-heavy batting line-up and a rounded bowling unit have been the Lancs’ strength, and they have played to their strengths admirably. The Yorks have been unfortunate in losing key players to COVID concerns and are extremely short of inexperience at such a crucial time of the tournament. It does give the younger guys a chance to put their hands up but against Lancashire’s prowess, things are going to be difficult.

One more loss will officially eliminate the Yorks while winning all their remaining games might also not guarantee them a semifinal spot. For the Lancs, winning at least one of their upcoming three games might do and they would want to seal the deal at the earliest.

Teams Preview

Lancashire Preview

Adapting to the conditions has been the key to Lancashire’s success in this Blast season.

Their top order has fired more often than not and got the job done. The bowling unit doesn’t have bigshot names in them but they have utilized the conditions effectively. Sluggish and two-paced decks have suited the Lancs nicely and playing at Old Trafford for the last three games of the tourney should suit them just fine. Manchester has played host to a plethora of international games during international cricket’s comeback after the start of COVID19.

As a result, the pitches are bound to be tired and uneven. Although Australia chased down 300-plus in the series decider against England on Wednesday (September 16), it’s unlikely that the pitches would be more than a 150ish total kind of deck. These are the surfaces that the Lancs would love to play on, day in and day out as it makes their unit that much more effective. They’ve got a host of spinners and medium pacers who like to change their pace. The bowling has often set things up for the batsmen, and Alex Davies’ form has stood out among the Lancs’ batsmen.

Lancashire Predicted Playing XI:

A Davies(wk), L Livingstone, S Croft, D Vilas(c), J Bohannon, R Jones, D Lamb, L Wood, T Bailey, T Hartley, M Parkinson

Yorkshire Preview

As it is, the Yorks generally lose their key players to national duties and it’s been pretty much the same this time around as well. Getting Joe Root for a few games was a bonus and he did fire in those few matches but with the England-Australia ODIs due, he had to leave and the Yorks have lost three in a row since.

What’s made their squad weaker is the suspected bout of COVID19 that’s supposed to have hit the camp, making them lose four more players including skipper David Willey and opener Tom Kohler-Cadmore. The duo wasn’t seen in one of their earlier games and at that time, the reason wasn’t clear.

Yorkshire has officially withdrawn four players now citing the reason of possible COVID19 effect and it means that Adam Lyth shall lead the team for the rest of the season. Yorks are clearly short on resources and also in a must-win scenario. The odds are heavily stacked against them, and it would take a miracle for the visitors to stage a comeback from here. That said, it’s also a chance for the lesser-known names to make a mark.

Yorkshire Predicted Playing XI:

A Lyth(c), H Brook, D Malan, G Hill, W Fraine, J Wharton, M Pillans, J Thompson, J Tattersall(wk), B Coad, J Shutt

Weather Conditions

Weather forecast is for a clear day in Manchester with no chances of rain. The pitch is expected to be on the slower side with spin likely to play a key role due to the dry nature of the tracks on view.

Venue Details

Old Trafford has been an iconic venue for English cricket, much like it has been in football. Both in Tests and limited-overs cricket, the ground has been a witness to several classic cricketing encounters.

Toss: To Bat

Given that the pitches at the venue are all used, teams would want to bat first as chasing could get hazardous due to the imminent slowness and two-paced nature of the deck.

Winning Prediction

Given current form and team balance, Lancashire are favourites to pull off a win in this contest, more so with Yorkshire in an extremely depleted position with respect to resources.

All-round strength gives Lancashire an edge in this fixture!
