Nottinghamshire are at the top of the points table with 11 points and a net run rate of 0.915. The team, captained by Steven Mullaney, has fetched as many as three ties. Their last match against Derbyshire also ended in a tie.
Meanwhile, Lancashire are precariously placed in the middle of the table. In their previous game, they lost to Northamptonshire by seven wickets. Before that, they split the points with Nottinghamshire after the match ended in a tie. Their last win came against Derbyshire back on June 15 at the County Ground in Derby.
On that note, we take a look at three players whom you can pick as the captain or vice-captain for the upcoming T20 Blast fixture:
#3 Joe Clarke
Joe Clarke has been in outstanding form for the Nottinghamshire team and part of the reason why they are placed at the top of the points table. In eight matches, the right-handed batter has notched up 276 runs at an average of 39.42 and a strike rate of 198.56. He got a couple of good starts in the last two matches but couldn’t convert them.
#2 Matthew Parkinson
Matthew Parkinson has been brilliant with the ball for Lancashire. The leg-spinner has picked up ten wickets from seven matches. He is also the team’s leading wicket-taker in the ongoing edition of the T20 Blast.
Parkinson's best figures of 3/28 came against Derbyshire in Manchester. Overall, he’s been a tough nut to crack for all opponents.
#1 Finn Allen
Finn Allen has done brilliantly for Lancashire with the bat. Opening the batting for his team, he has given an account of the damage he can do. In six matches, he has racked up 213 runs at an average of 35.50 and a strike rate of 141.05.
