Nottinghamshire and Lancashire will lock horns in the 26th match of the Vitality T20 Blast 2022. Trent Bridge in Nottingham will host this North Group fixture.
Nottinghamshire began their campaign with a convincing 4-wicket win over Worcestershire. Luke Fletcher picked up a five-wicket haul as they restricted Worcestershire to 164/9 with the ball. It was a slightly tricky run-chase for Nottinghamshire.
However, Joe Clarke’s half-century with contributions from Ben Duckett, Tom Moores and Daniel Christian saw them romp home eventually in 19.4 overs. Nottinghamshire will now look to keep their winning run going as they take on Lancashire in this clash.
On the other hand, Lancashire’s first game against Yorkshire was tied. In their next game against Worcestershire, though, they registered a 12-run win. Batting first, Lancashire put up a healthy total of 183/7 courtesy of a spectacular 25-ball 60 from Tim David.
Richard Gleeson was the star with the ball, grabbing five wickets as Worcestershire were restricted to 171/8 in a close encounter.
Both teams will be keen to keep the winning run going, which makes this an exciting battle to watch out for.
