After thrashing Durham by 9 wickets with 72 balls remaining on Thursday evening, Lancashire Lightning were brought back down to earth with a bump on Friday when they lost by 5 wickets with 3 balls remaining against Worcestershire Rapids. Back in front of their home fans, Steven Croft’s side will be desperate for another win.

LAN Team Batting

Although they were beaten on Friday, there were some strong batting performances from Lancashire Lightning with opener Luke Wells (34) continuing his strong form and keeper-batter Matthew Hurst (45) and skipper Croft (52 not out) also impressing.

Derbyshire Team News & Playing 11

DER Team News

After losing their opening game of the T20 Blast by 5 wickets to Northamptonshire Steelbacks on Thursday, Derbyshire Falcons got their first win as they beat Leicestershire Foxes by 4 wickets with 5 balls remaining on Saturday. This will be a tough game as the Falcons have beaten Lancashire Lightning only once in their last five.

DER Team Batting

Derbyshire Falcons have some exciting young players but it was the batting of their experienced pair, Wayne Madsen and captain Samit Patel who made the big contributions in their successful pursuit of 177. The pair have a combined age of 79 years but they have both had successful T20 careers with Madsen particularly in good form ahead of this match.

DER Team Bowling

There were two wickets each for Zak Chappell, Pat Brown and Samit Patel in the win over Leicestershire Foxes and Brown is already having another successful T20 Blast campaign. New Zealander Blair Tickner is yet to pick up a wicket for the Falcons but he should enjoy the pace on offer on this pitch at Old Trafford.

DER Team Form

Derbyshire Falcons have put in two good performances so far in the tournament and fully deserved their first win on Saturday.

Derbyshire Predicted Playing 11

Luis Reece, Harry Came, David Lloyd, Wayne Madsen, Samit Patel (c), Ross Whiteley, Brooke Guest (wk), Zak Chappell, Mitchell Wagstaff, Pat Brown, Blair Tickner
