Lancashire Team News & Playing 11

LAN Team News

From the team who took on Surrey in the 2023 T20 Blast quarter-final, Lancashire Lightning will be without Phil Salt, Jos Buttler, Liam Livingstone, Tom Hartley and Daryl Mitchell who are all at the T20 World Cup and Dane Vilas who is no longer with the county. Tom Bruce and Chris Green will be their overseas players in this campaign.

LAN Team Batting

Lancashire Lightning are obviously a weaker T20 batting side without Salt, Buttler, Livingstone and Mitchell but they still have some very capable batters in their team. Keaton Jennings will be looking to make a name for himself in T20 cricket after being labeled a red-ball specialist over recent season.

LAN Team Bowling

Although the batting line-up is lacking some big names, Lancashire Lightning still have an excellent bowling attack with England internationals Luke Wood and Saqib Mahmood likely to open. Wood comes straight from the 2024 Indian Premier League.

LAN Team Form

Lancashire Lightning won two, lost two and saw one abandonment across their last five T20 Blast games.

Durham Team News & Playing 11

DUR Team News

It was an excellent start to the campaign for Durham in 2023 but they fell away badly across the final three-quarters of the season and finished in seventh place, five points behind the top four. They have David Bedingham and Ashton Turner as their overseas players in 2024.

DUR Team Batting

Skipper Alex Lees is likely to open the batting alongside the experienced and powerful Graham Clark who enjoyed a strong individual season last year. Beddingham has been in fine form in the County Championship in 2024 and the likes of Brydon Carse and Ashton Turner will be the main contributors down the order.

DUR Team Bowling

Carse is likely to bowl the middle overs in this game and we can expect him to bang away at a back of a length which could prove tough to get him to the boundary. Callum Parkinson will give the ball plenty of air and turn at Old Trafford and is expected to be used in an attacking role.

DUR Team Form

Durham did not win any of their last eight games in the 2023 Vitality Blast.

🏆 Lancashire vs Durham Prediction

This will be an interesting contest with Lancashire Lightning nowhere near at their strongest against a Durham side who ended last season in awful form! David Bedingham will be key for Durham but we are backing Lancashire Lightning’s bowling attack to take them to victory.
