Birmingham Bears will face Lancashire in the Vitality T20 Blast Northern Group fixture in Birmingham on Thursday.

The home team in this fixture will be coming in full of confidence as they are currently placed on the top of the table with eight points after five matches. Therefore, the team management will be hoping that the players will continue their good run in the match on Thursday as well.

On the other hand, the visitors are very nicely placed on the third position of the Northern Group table with six points after four matches. The management will be hoping that the players will live up to the expectation in a mouthwatering contest as well.

Both teams have competed 16 times in a T20 contest where Lancashire have a slightly better record with eight wins compared to Bears’ seven victories whereas one match ended with no result.

However, the Birmingham side will be optimistic about producing a positive result against their opponents on Thursday as they have managed to get the better of Lancashire three times in last five outings with just one defeat.

Warwickshire Preview

After registering back-to-back victories in the competition, Birmingham Bears’ team management is unlikely to make any significant changes in the playing XI.

In the batting department, the team will be relying heavily on Sam Hain who has been the leading scorer for the side in the competition with 251 runs in five innings at an average of 83.66, which included three half-centuries as well.

The return of form for captain Will Rhodes in the last match against Leicestershire—where he managed to score 79 off just 40 balls with the help five fours and five sixes—will be a welcome sign for the Bears and the team management will be hoping to see him continue his good run in the coming matches as well.

On the bowling front, the onus will be on the likes of West Indies’ right-arm pacer Carlos Brathwaite along with the left-arm spin duo of Jake Lintott and Danny Briggs to produce timely breakthroughs.

Warwickshire Predicted Playing XI:

Ed Pollock, Pieter Malan, Will Rhodes (c), Sam Hain, Carlos Brathwaite, Dan Mousley, Michael Burgess (wk), Tim Bresnan, Danny Briggs, Jacob Lintott, Craig Miles

Lancashire Preview

On the bowling front, the onus will be on the likes of pacers Conor McKerr, Logan van Beek and spinners Matt Critchley, Tom Hartley to claim timely breakthroughs.

Lancashire Predicted Playing XI:

Liam Livingstone, Finn Allen, Alex Davies, Jos Buttler (wk), Dane Vilas (c), Steven Croft, Luke Wood, Danny Lamb, Tom Hartley, Tom Bailey, Matthew Parkinson
