Lancashire vs Yorkshire Pitch Report
The pitch at Old Trafford cricket ground certainly has something for the bowlers. The seamer can exploit the gloomy overhead conditions to their advantage and can get the ball to shape around very nicely. The dry nature of the surface will also aid the spinners who can extract a fair amount of turn and bounce from the track
Past data from domestic T20 competitions on this venue suggest that teams have often struggled to chase. Many of them ended with scores below 150 in 17 out of 56 instances. It will certainly be a wise option to bat first and put enough runs on the board to skittle the opposition.

Overall, the weather will be cold and gloomy with temperatures fluctuating between 17 and 13 degrees Celsius.

Lancashire vs Yorkshire Prediction
Lancashire have only lost once in their last five games and have a superb track record as they advance into this fixture. Yorkshire, on the other hand, have looked scratchy and has been winless in their last four games. Lancashire should win by a very sizeable margin as they have the winning momentum behind them.
