Warwickshire and Lancashire Battle for Supremacy in the North Group

Warwickshire and Lancashire will lock horns in the upcoming North Group match of the T20 Blast 2022, on Sunday, 3rd July. The match will take place at Manchester’s Old Trafford.

Warwickshire has been, if not the opposition, the most successful team in the group. The Bears started the campaign with three consecutive wins. Despite some defeats, they have been able to make a remarkable comeback. Birmingham’s boys have won six out of eight matches, including two straight wins against Northamptonshire and Worcestershire.

Lancashire, although not quite as impressive as their opponents, have also been very convincing. Although they were unbeaten for seven of their initial matches, it must be noted that Dane Vilas’ men have seen a decline in the last few weeks. Lancashire has won just one of the last five matches they have played in, and will attempt to rebound in this fixture.

Team News

Warwickshire may not make any changes to the team due to how they’ve played recently and their recent wins. However, fine-tuning remains an option.

Alex Davies was dismissed for a duck in the last match against Worcestershire, which means he now has an average of only 18.81. Jacob Bethell could replace him in this match. Although he may not have used his opportunities previously, he is talented enough and promising enough that a second chance should be given. Chris Benjamin, the Bears’ wicketkeeper in such an event, will be required to take care of matters.

Lancashire will have to change their playing XI following their slump. Vilas doesn’t have many options for choosing alternatives.

The only area where Vilas could improve is his bowling. Luke Wells failed to take wickets in his match against Derbyshire, making it seven games for his team. He still only has two wickets. Liam Hurt could replace him, although he was costly in the one chance that he had, but he did come back with a wicket.

Key Players Adam Hose: Warwickshire has a strong batting team, however, among a host of well-known names, few would have predicted that Adam Hose would emerge as the leading hitter. The 29-year-old is currently leading the run-scoring charts for his team, having accumulated 47 runs in 12 matches at an average of 67. 28 and a strike rate of 175.09. Newport’s lad has reached a century with thrice the number of half-centuries.

Richard Gleeson. Lancashire has had great batting performances by Tim David and Steven Croft, but Richard Gleeson is their most consistent player. Now 34 years of age, it seems that Gleeson has rediscovered himself as he is picking up wickets for fun. The Blackpool-born cricketer has scalped 20 wickets, seven more than anyone from his team, whilst maintaining an average of only 16.10. His record includes a four-wicket and five-wicket wins.
