Lancashire Women will square off against Ireland Women XI in an unofficial T20 match at Old Trafford in Manchester on Thursday.
Ireland Women, who will lock horns with Lancashire Women away from home, boast a strong squad as they have traveled with a full-strength side for the one-off T20 match.
Lancashire Women, on the other hand, will miss the services of England's slow left-arm bowler Sophie Ecclestone, who is currently on international duty.
However, both sides have enough firepower in their ranks and will look to win the one-off T20 encounter.

The pitch at Old Trafford is a good one to bat on throughout the T20 game, with scores of around 190-200 considered par totals at the venue. While the pacers will enjoy bowling on this track as there is some extra swing and pace on offer, the spinners might struggle a bit. But the tweakers can concede fewer runs if they maintain their lines and lengths.
