Notts vs Lancs Semi-Final, Vitality T20 Blast 2020

The two most successful teams in this tournament’s history in terms of match wins, Nottinghamshire Outlaws and Lancashire Lightning meet in the second semi-final of the Vitality T20 Blast 2020 Finals Day at Edgbaston on October 3. The live action starts at 14:30 local time.

Nottinghamshire Outlaws thrashed Lancashire in the group stage as the two teams finished first and second in the North Group. Nottinghamshire needed the powerplay countback to beat Leicestershire Foxes after a tie in the quarter-final, however – and even that was thanks to a misfield off the final ball. 

Lancashire Lightning, on the other hand, ended the group stage with a bit of a whimper but they roared back in the quarter-finals. After setting Sussex 141 to win, thanks largely to Steven Croft and Dane Vilas, they then bowled Sussex out for 95 with Liam Livingstone (4-23) and Matt Parkinson (3-9) the pick of the bowlers.

Nottinghamshire vs Lancashire Toss Prediction

Lancashire were asked to bat first in the quarter-final and this could be a bowl-first wicket too.

Weather Report

Rain is forecast all day in Birmingham on Saturday and the reserve day is going to be needed – although the weather on Sunday is only marginally less wet.

Pitch Condition

Wet weather usually means an Edgbaston wicket that gives the bowlers a little more.

Nottinghamshire Team News & Playing 11

Nottinghamshire Team News

Nottinghamshire Outlaws were at near enough full strength last time out of those available and, despite just a narrow win, they could be unchanged for the semi-final.

Nottinghamshire Key Players

  • Alex Hales: May not have showed it last time out but the explosive opener is the key man for Nottinghamshire at the top of the order.
  • Joe Clarke: His top-score of 35 from 22 balls last time out means he now has 351 runs in nine innings this season, at a strike rate of 177.27.
  • Jake Ball: Moved to 16 wickets in eight matches when he claimed 2-30 last time out and even bowled a maiden over.

Nottinghamshire Team Form

Nottinghamshire Outlaws’ only North Group defeat came against Leicestershire, though they beat Durham to end the group stage on a high. Still, they nearly missed out against the Foxes last time out again. Dan Christian and Jake Ball each took two wickets as they were set 140 to win, but it was only thanks to some late misfields that they tied with 139/7 themselves in reply. Notts progressed purely because they had scored more in the powerplay.

Lancashire Team News & Playing 11

Lancashire Team News

Lancashire could stick with a winning side for this semi-final, with Liam Livingstone up the order and Keaton Jennings fit again at number three. Richard Gleeson is out with a back injury, and Tom Bailey and Josh Bohanon are among the players fighting for a Finals Day recall.

Lancashire Key Players

  • Liam Livingstone: Hit a modest 16 with the bat, despite two sixes, but then erased last year’s painful quarter-final memories with an excellent 4-23 with the ball.
  • Alex Davies: Hit four half-centuries in the group stage, most recently in the final game against Leicestershire, and he showed some smart glovework too.
  • Matt Parkinson: Finished with excellent bowling figures of 3-9 from his three overs last time out to prove his worth as the primary spin bowler.

Lancashire Team Form

Lancashire ended the group stage with defeats to Durham and Leicestershire Foxes but they were back to winning ways last time out. Steven Croft (41) and Dane Vilas (40) lifted the Lightning to 140/8 and Liam Livingstone and Matt Parkinson shared seven wickets between them to help bowl Sussex out for 95 in reply.

Notts vs LANCS Dream11 Prediction

  • Wicket-keeper(s)

    Alex Davies has been Lancashire’s top batsman in the 2020 T20 Blast and at nine credits he is great value. His tidy glovework and good batting form has earned 544 points so far. Ben Duckett is Notts’ second-top scorer, meanwhile, and he too looks a great pick at nine credits.

  • Batsmen

    Joe Clarke starred when these teams last met and he is a key batsman up the order too. He is Notts’ top runscorer this season, while Alex Hales’ reputation goes before him too. Both are 9.5 credits but neither can really be ignored. After his form earlier this season, Keaton Jennings’ return from injury is also key.

  • All-rounder(s)

    Liam Livingstone showed he can also be key with the ball with his four wickets last time out but his explosive batting up the order is the main reason to select him. Despite not bowling as much this year, meanwhile, Steven Croft’s batting has helped him to 449 points. Both Lancs men come at a big cost but both are worth picking. It leaves enough for one of Samit Patel and Steven Mullaney and the latter has some good records against his former team.

  • Bowlers

    Matt Parkinson showed his bowling quality last time out and comes in at just nine credits, while Jake Ball is 8.5 credits but has 16 wickets to his name so far this season. Both are key picks. It leaves eight credits and, of those listed at that price, Matthew Carter looks the best pick after claiming 167 points so far.

  • Captain/vice-captain

    Liam Livingstone showed why you should consider him for captain with his bowling last time out to add to his batting reputation. Nottinghamshire are the favourites, however, and Jake Ball’s bowling and Joe Clarke’s batting are both worth backing, perhaps in that order.

Notts vs LANCS Dream11 Team Prediction

  • Batsmen:Alex Hales, Joe Clarke (vc), Keaton Jennings

  • All Rounder:Liam Livingstone, Steven Croft, Steven Mullaney

  • Wicket Keeper:Alex Davies, Ben Duckett

  • Bowler:Matt Parkinson, Jake Ball (c), Matthew Carter
