Lancashire vs Warwickshire Prediction and Pick

Lancashire holds the upper hand when it comes to head-to-head records, but only by the narrowest of margins. They have beaten Warwickshire on eight occasions while the Bears have had the last laugh seven times, with as many as seven matches not producing a winner.

However, Warwickshire have done much better than the Lightning in recent weeks, which is why we have predicted them to win this particular battle.

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. This match will be played at the Old Trafford in Manchester.

If not the competition, Warwickshire have certainly been the best team in their group. They started their campaign with three back-to-back wins, and though a couple of defeats did derail them, the Bears have made a stunning comeback ever since. The boys from Birmingham have won six of their last eight outings, which includes two consecutive wins in their last two matches against Worcestershire and Northamptonshire.

On the other hand, though not as good as their opposition, Lancashire have been pretty convincing as well. They remained unbeaten in their first seven matches, but it has to be said that Dane Vilas’ men have been on a downward slope in recent weeks. Lancashire have won only one of their last five matches, but they will be aiming to make a comeback in this fixture.

Team News

Given how they have played in recent times and also the fact that they have won their last two fixtures, Warwickshire might not opt to make changes to their team, though fine-tuning is still a viable 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. He could be replaced by Jacob Bethell in this match, who might not have utilized his previous opportunities, but is certainly talented and promising enough to deserve a second chance. In such a scenario, Chris Benjamin will have to keep wickets for the Bears.

More than Warwickshire, it is Lancashire who will need to make changes to their playing XI after their recent slump. However, Vilas is a little short of options when it comes to selecting alternatives.

The one department where he could make a change, however, is bowling. Luke Wells had yet another poor outing in the last match against Derbyshire as he failed to pick up wickets, which means he now have played seven matches for his team but still has only two wickets to show for. He could be replaced by Liam Hurt, who was expensive in the only chance he has been provided with so far, but did return with a wicket.

Key Players

Adam Hose: Warwickshire boasts of a formidable batting unit, but amid a plethora of renowned names, not many would have expected Adam Hose to emerge as the kingpin. 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. The lad from Newport has scored one century and thrice as many half-centuries.

Richard Gleeson: Lancashire have had some superb batting performances from the likes of Steven Croft and Tim David, but their star player has been a bowler – Richard Gleeson. 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. He has one four-wicket haul and as many five-wicket hauls to his name.
