Can Durham continue the momentum against semi-finalists
The last season’s semi-finalists Lancashire is yet to play a match in the tournament, after their first match being a washout on Friday. On the other hand, Durham started the season on a high with a win against Northamptonshire by 7 runs in a close encounter. Now it’s all about taking the momentum forward for Durham, but Lancashire will offer a big challenge for them, unlike Northamptonshire.
Lancashire Possible XI: Keaton Jennings, Alex Davies, Glenn Maxwell, Dane Vilas (C), Josh Bohannon, Steven Croft, James Faulkner, Danny Lamb, Toby Lester, Matt Parkinson, Richard Gleeson.
Durham Possible XI: D’Arcy Short, Scott Steel, Graham Clark, Ben Raine, Stuart Poynter (WK), Liam Trevaskis, Alex Lees, Jack Burnham, Brydon Carse, Nathan Rimmington, Matthew Potts.
The surface in Manchester is usually known for its batsmen friendly nature where the venue witnessed pretty high scoring games in this World Cup. The forecast is for a few showers later in the evening but there is no rain threat for the match.
He is the top run-getter for Lancashire in 2018 T20 Blast where he scored 534 runs in 15 matches. He is also coming into the season on the back of a good county championship for the side which makes him the most sought out player in today’s match in Dream11 cricket team.
He has become a T20 veteran after his dip in form in ODI cricket. He is coming into the season on the back of a good form and he has played a crucial role for the Hurricanes for this year’s BBL. His present form makes him an essential in Dream11 cricket team for today’s match.
D Arcy Short
Since his breakthrough season in BBL 2018, Short has been all around the T20 leagues in the World. He has started the season on a good note where he was the performer of the match in the side’s opening game. His present form makes him a must-have a player in Dream11 cricket team, as he was known to make the most use of the good form.
He may not have had the best of World Cup but every time he came into bat there was intent from Maxi. His ability to change the game by producing blistering knocks from nowhere makes him a big bet player today.
