The Royal London One-Day Cup 2021 will see Durham (DUR) take on Lancashire (LAN) at Chester-le-Street in Durham on Thursday.

DUR vs LAN, Royal London One-Day Cup
Date and Time: 5th August 2021, at 3:30 PM IST
Venue: Riverside Ground, Chester-le-Street
The pitch at the Riverside Ground is a good one to bat on, with the bowlers also expected to get some help early on. Although the ball should come nicely on to the bat, the pitch might slow down as the game progresses. Wickets in hand will be key for both teams, with 270 being a good total at the venue. Both teams will look to chase upon winning the toss, but the pitch shouldn't change much in the second innings.
Today's DUR vs LAN Dream11 match top picks
Cameron Bancroft: Although Cameron Bancroft has blown hot and cold this season, he has looked fairly solid in the shorter formats. Able against both spin and pace, Bancroft should be a good addition to your DUR vs LAN Dream11 team.
Rob Jones: Young Rob Jones has been one of the breakout stars for Lancashire with his consistent performances in the middle order. Given the form that he is in, he is a must-have in your fantasy team.
Graham Clark: Graham Clark is the leading run-scorer in the Royal London One-Day Cup 2021 with over 300 runs to his name. Explosive with the bat and handy with the ball, Clark should deliver a few points if picked in your side.
Steven Croft: In the absence of Dane Vilas in the middle order, Steven Croft has stepped up with some consistent performances for Lancashire. Handy with the ball as well, Croft is a valuable addition to your DUR vs LAN Dream11 team.
Danny Lamb: Danny Lamb has been absolutely sensational for Lancashire with runs and wickets in abundance. With most of their star players out playing in The Hundred, Lancashire will bank on Lamb to deliver the goods yet again.
Liam Trevaskis: Durham spinner Liam Trevaskis has been fairly consistent in the shorter formats over the last year or so. With home conditions playing into his hands, Trevaskis is one to watch out for in today's Royal London One-Day Cup game.
