Key players for Yorkshire:
Yorkshire’s Probable Playing XI:
Old Trafford in Manchester will host this match. This ground has a capacity of 19,000 and has witnessed a few international as well as domestic games so far. This venue is the home ground of Lancashire.
This ground has hosted 84 international Test matches so far and offered an advantage to both batsmen and bowlers in previous domestic matches. The team batting first here, however, has generally delivered better than the bowling team as seen from the last 5 Test matches. The team who has opted to bat first won 4 games out of 5. At this location, whichever team wins the toss will want to bat first.
Pitch and Weather Report
It will be partially cloudy on match day, with a 30-40% chance of raining. The maximum and minimum temperatures will be in the range of 15°C – 8°C.
Yorkshire have shown their dominance over Lancashire in the past few fixtures. Yorkshire’s pacers seem in good touch this season and their bowling attack will put high pressure on Lancashire in this upcoming match. On the other hand, though Lancashire did well in the past few matches this season, their batting remains a concern for them. That issue will be the main target for Yorkshire’s bowling unit which might help them to clinch a victory.
We predict that Yorkshire will defeat Lancashire.
