LAN Vs YOR Dream11 Team: Yorkshire is in dire straits at the moment having lost three games in a row and also because of the fact that four of their key players have been withdrawn from the squad due to COVID issues.
Lancashire, on the other hand, played Yorkshire in their previous game as well and the way they beat Yorkshire with ease, they will certainly carry that confidence to tonight’s game.
This is a North Group match and will start at 11:00 PM IST. The weather forecast is very promising for the rest of the week and there are no chances of any rain at any stage of the game.
Yorkshire has managed to win just 2 out of the 8 games they have played in the group stages which is way below par. They were supposed to be one of the teams which could top the North Group table, but they are currently sitting at the no. 5 position with just 6 points in their kitty.
Lancashire is at no. 2 in the North Group table having suffered just one defeat in their 7 games so far. The only defeat that they have suffered has come at the hands of the table toppers Nottinghamshire.
The match will take place at Emirates Old Trafford, Manchester. The average first innings score at this venue in T20 cricket is 151, while the average second innings score comes down to 127. The captain winning the toss might like to make first use of the pitch and might decide to bat.
LAN Vs YOR Who Will Win Dream11 Prediction
It would have been a very close one to call if Yorkshire had their full strength squad available to them, but with 4 of their key players out and given the fact that their recent form has been shaky as well, they are on the back-foot and Lancashire enters the game as the clear favorites.
LAN playing 11 (expected): Liam Livingstone, Alex Davies (WK), Steven Croft, Dane Vilas (C), Josh Bohannon, Rob Jones, Danny Lamb, Luke Wood, Tom Bailey, Tom Hartley, Matthew Parkinson
YOR playing 11 (expected): Harry Brook, Adam Lyth (C), Dawid Malan, George Hill, Will Fraine, James Wharton, Jordan Thompson, Jonathan Tattersall (WK), Ben Coad, Duanne Olivier, Jack Schutt
Dawid Malan: Malan is the no. 1 batsman in the world at the moment in T20 international cricket, but he has not been able to go past the score of 30 in either of the two games he has played in Vitality Blast 2020 so far. However, given the quality that Malan has as a T20 batsman, it would probably be wise to pick him as Dream11 captain because is due for a big one.
Liam Livingstone: Liam Livingstone has absolutely crunched the ball in the last couple of games he has played for Lancashire and although he also, just like Malan, has lost his wicket before getting to a significant score, he can be backed for Dream11 captaincy on the basis of quality.
Matthew Parkinson: Parkinson was one of the heroes of Lancashire’s victory over Yorkshire in their previous outing as he had got 3 wickets for 25 runs. What’s impressive was that all his 3 wickets were of the specialist batsmen. Parkinson’s ability to spin the ball both ways will be vital and it shouldn’t be surprising if he manages to make a difference in the game again.
Adam Lyth: Lyth has looked a bit under pressure since he has taken over as the stand-in captain, but he has been a class player at the top of the order for Yorkshire for a very long time and his contribution with the bat will go a long way in determining if Yorkshire poses any sort of challenge to Lancashire tonight.
