About the Match

The first 'Game of Roses' clash happens to take place on 14th July 2017 when Lancashire Lightning takes on Yorkshire Vikings at the Old Trafford, Lancashire's home ground. Games of Roses hold a special place in English Cricket with its history dating back to 15th century. Both sides have won one and lost one with Yorkshire having an extra point in their kitty, thanks to a washed out game. Although, Lancashire has a slight upper hand with home advantage, the games have traditionally been mighty close and we expect it to be nothing different this time as well.


Jos Buttler will be key man for Lancashire coming in to this fixture. He's had two good outings with scores of 59 and 39 against Durham and Leicestershire respectively and will be looking to hit big in this Roses Match. Liam Livingstone failed to make it big in their first match, but played impressively for his 48 in the second match. Their already impressive bowling lineup will be bolstered by the arrival of Junaid Khan who has bowled well in his recent outings. Danny Lamb picked up two scalps in the last game which included the wickets of a couple of top order batsmen. Lancashire has had an upper hand when the two sides met an year ago at same venue. With good performances in the batting backed by a strong bowling lineup, this Lancashire team is a team to watch out when on song.


Yorkshire had a fantastic start to the tournament where they won by 49 runs after scoring a colossal 227 runs total. However, they could not match their own performance with the bat in the second match and lost the match. Adam Lyth has been in top form for them with back to back fifties in two games. Shaun Marsh was good in the first game, but failed to get going in the second match. David Willey has been impressive and provided impetus to the innings at the top order allowing other batsmen to settle down. Bowling rests in the hands of Steven Patterson and Adelaide Rashid who have picked up four and two wickets respectively. Overall, Yorkshire is a strong team which could defeat any team if their batsmen fires.

Our Prediction

Going head to head, it has been fairly even between the teams. Out of 23 games, 11 have been won by Lancashire and 11 by Yorkshire and one match ending in no result. It's hard to pick between the two sides going by the head to head record. However, Lancashire seems to be having an upper hand because of home advantage and good T20 record. They also have a superior record at the Old Trafford and won the last match here. They go in as favorites for this match.
