Lancashire will square off against Sussex in a Group A encounter of the Royal London One-Day Cup at the Cricket Field at Sedbergh School on Friday.
Lancashire have been inconsistent in the history of the Royal London One-Day Cup. They have a win percentage of 45.45% and have never made it to the final of the 50-over competition. They will want to correct that record this time around. Lancashire's form in white-ball cricket has been decent this season. They finished second in the North Group with 16 points in the T20 Blast and will be looking to carry that form into the 50-over format.
Sussex, meanwhile, are by far one of the worst-performing sides in the history of the Royal London One-Day Cup. They have won just 13 games while losing 28 times. Their win percentage of 31.7% is the second-lowest for any County side in the tournament. However, Sussex have fared well in this year’s T20 Blast. They finished third in the South Group with 17 points.
Both Lancashire and Sussex will be without several first-choice players. As the Royal London One-Day Cup runs parallel to The Hundred, most big-named players are involved in the 100-ball tournament.

Venue: The Cricket Field, Sedbergh School
The 22-yard surface at the Cricket Field at Sedbergh School is likely to be a good one to bat on, with the ball expected to come on to the bat nicely. However, the fast bowlers might get some movement early on and it could be a good all-round track. A score of around 280-290 might be par at the venue.
