About the Match

After staying at the top of the table for a long time, Lancashire have gradually lost the momentum and are now placed in a delicate position at the fourth spot. They have Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire breathing down their neck which makes their next encounter even more important. They are set to face Birmingham Bears on 10th August 2018 at Old Trafford Manchester. It would be an important game for Birmingham Bears as well considering that they need to win most of their matches to make it to the final four of the group.

Match Preview

Lancashire

Left-arm spinner Liam Trevaski killed hopes of Lancashire to rise to the second spot in the points table as he successfully defended 6 runs off the last over to hand Lancashire their third defeat of the competition. Lancashire were in a fantastic position at the halfway stage during their chase of 155, but some irresponsible batting cost them the game.

They could only score one run off the last over as Liam Trevaski had James Faulkner caught at long-on, Parkinson caught at deep-midwicket and Lamb stumped. At the half-way stage, Lightning looked absolute favorites with 63 required and ten wickets in hand.

Lancashire's failure to chase down a subpar total has raised many questions about their batting. They've gone from the best team in the tournament to the fourth, thanks to the poor all-around performance from them. Danny Lamb and Khan bowled well to bring Lancashire back in the game as Durham stumbled after reaching 57 in the seventh over. Durham eventually managed to get to 154, thanks to lusty blows by Will Smith, however, casual approach by Lancashire batsmen in the death overs cost them the match.

Lancashire Starting Lineup

Alex Davies, Karl Brown, Arron Lilley, DJ Vilas, Steven Croft, Jordan Clark, James Faulkner, Danny Lamb, MRJ Watt, Matt Parkinson, Zahir Khan.

Birmingham Bears

Ian Bell and Chris Woakes contributed massively to guide Birmingham Bears back to the winning ways as they demolished Northamptonshire to score their fourth win of the season. They are now third from the bottom with 9 points, but things can quickly change if they can rack up wins in their matches today and tomorrow respectively.

After a rather subdued start as they lost Ed Pollock and Adam Hose in the powerplay overs, Birmingham Bears did well to get to a total which looked remote right through their innings. Ian Bell and Sam Hain reconstructed their innings before Sam Hain departed. The quick-fire knock by Chris Woakes took the Bears' total from 128 for five to 187. Owing to India's tour of India, Chris Woakes won't be available for the upcoming matches which is a big setback for Warwickshire.

Chasing a total of tall-order was never going to be easy for the Northants and the Bears ensured the same as Olly Stone got rid of Ben Duckett quickly. Joshua Cobb held one end, but tight bowling and quick wickets at the other end from the bowlers never allowed Northants to break free. With 27 needed off the final over, Northamptonshire fell short by 17 runs as Stone bowled a tidy over.

Birmingham Bears Starting Lineup

Ian Bell, Ed Pollock, Adam Hose, Sam Hain, Colin de Grandhomme, Grant Elliott, Alex Thomson, Tim Ambrose, Jeetan Patel, Aaron Thomason, Josh Poysden.

Our Prediction

Both the teams started the tournament in a terrific manner, but the graph of their performances has nosedived right from the beginning. The absence of Chris Woakes could hurt Birmingham Bears if Lancashire Lightning are able to work on their batting. Considering the form throughout the competition and teams on paper, Lancashire Lightning appear slightly ahead to win the upcoming contest.
