north vs lancs Match Prediction & Analysis

Vitality Blast has reached the half-way mark with all the team splaying almost 7 games and the competition for the play-off spots intensifies with every match from this stage. Lancashire and Northamptonshire are lagging behind the qualification race in the bottom half of the points table. Lancashire are slightly in a better position and a win in this match will lead them into the top-half of the table. Northamptonshire on the other hand ended their 6 match win-less streak last game and will look to take forward the momentum into this game.

Teams Preview

Northamptonshire openers Ricardo Vasconseales (78 runs) and Adam Rossington (59 runs) made fifties and shared a brilliant 125-run partnership to put their team on forefront in the 158-run chase. They chased down the total in just 17.2 overs with 9 wickets remaining comfortably.

Spinners Mohammed Nabi and Graeme White claimed 2 wickets each to trouble the opposition in the powerplay and middle overs respectively.

Top players to bet on:

Ricardo Vasconseales – Ricardo batted throughout the chase scoring 78 runs off 57 balls with 10 boundaries. He will be high on confidence after this unbeaten knock and will look to contribute to the team consistently.  

Mohammed Nabi – Nabi has claimed just 2 wickets so far but his economy rate of 6.9 RPO despite bowling in powerplay will be a big bones for his team. He must also contribute with some vital runs in the middle order.

Lancashire Preview

Lancashire tied their game in a thrilling fashion after being set a competitive total of 173 runs. They looked good to complete the chase easily when their openers Keaton Jennings (88* runs) and Finn Allen (60 runs) shared a 118-run opening partnership at a good strike rate. Couple of quick middle order wickets caused slump but Jennings helped his team tie the match with a penultimate ball six.

Danny Lamb and Tom Hartley were superb with the ball with figures of 3/23 & 2/25 in the match. Luke Wood, Steven Croft, and Mathew Parkinson claimed 4 wickets between themselves but gave away 120 runs in their combined 12 overs.

Top players to bet on:

Keaton Jennings – Jennings had an eventful first match scoring 88 runs off 61 balls and was dismissed in the last ball with scores being tied. His penultimate ball six brought their hopes alive from the ashes and he will look to continue his onslaught in this match too.

Tom Hartley – Tom Hartley opened the bowling attack and had figures of 4-0-25-2 in the game. He is not allowing the batsmen to settle down in the powerplay with his stump to stump line and lengths.

Lancashire Predicted Playing XI:

Keaton Jennings, Finn Allen, Alex Davies, Dane Vilas (c & wk), Steven Croft, Rob Jones, Luke Wells, Luke Wood, Danny Lamb, Tom Hartley, Matthew Parkinson

Weather Conditions

Northampton will have slightly dark and cloudy weather on the match day. We expect the rain appearance not to make a big impact in this match.

Venue Details

County Ground is a high scoring ground with the ball coming onto the bat nicely early in the match. Teams batting first has scored 170+ runs in all 4 matches with a couple of 200 totals. We expect the average score at this venue to be around 170-180 runs in this match.

Toss: To Bat

Batting first is the best option as all 4 matches played here are won by teams batting first. The pitch might slow down slightly in the second innings.   

NORTH vs LANCS Winning Prediction

Northamptonshire returned to form in fine fashion with an all-round performance in batting and bowling department’s last game. They will have home advantage despite losing all the matches here so far. Lancashire looks a stronger batting line-up with Keaton Jennings at the top. They also have quality bowling unit with good mix of pace and spin bowlers. We expect Lancashire to win this match owing to their good performance in the season overall when compared to Northamptonshire.

LANCASHIRE will win the match
