Durham will take on Lancashire in a North Group T20 Blast fixture at the Riverside Ground on Thursday.
Durham are currently fifth in the North Group standings after winning two of their three T20 Blast matches. They beat Yorkshire and Leicestershire in their first two games before losing to Nottinghamshire in their last T20 Blast fixture. The Cameron Bancroft-led side will be hoping to return to winning ways at the earliest.
Lancashire, on the other hand, have won three of their four games and currently find themselves second in the North Group points table. They will head into Thursday's T20 Blast match on the back of a seven-wicket triumph over Derbyshire.

Another batting beauty is likely to be in store for Thursday's game. A score of around 190-200 could well be par on this ground.
