Lancashire vs Surrey Match Pitch Report
The pitch at the Emirates Old Trafford looks to be a balanced track. There is an equal degree of assistance for both batters and bowlers. There will be some movement with the new ball for the pacers and if the batters can nullify it, they can score big.
The spinners may come into play in the latter stages of the competition. We have seen teams struggle a bit to chase at this venue and captains winning the toss prefer to bat first. The fans can expect an even contest between the bat and the ball at the Emirates Old Trafford.
What to expect:
Lancashire: Liam Livingstone’s side has made a confident entry into the knockout stage. They defeated the Northamptonshire Steelbacks by 4 wickets in an easy run chase. They have enjoyed a great run at home this year with no losses. Livingstone shall like to continue with the same form and take his side to the semifinal.
Philip Salt played a good knock in the last game and will look to deliver a positive start with his experienced opening partner Jos Buttler. Liam Livingstone hasn’t fired with the bat this year, and he must do well in the middle order with Steven Croft and Daryl Mitchell. The side will also expect a good show from Luke Well and Dane Vilas in the lower middle order.
Luke Wood and Tom Bailey must do well with the new ball, as Surrey has good strike players at the top. Tom Hartley will have to bowl good lines in the middle overs with Livingstone. Mitchell and Luke Wells complete a balanced attack from the side, and the onus would be on them to put a check on the scoring rate.
Lancashire Key Players
- Phil Salt – Phil Salt had a good outing in the last game as he scored 74 runs in 51 balls. Salt would like to ride on the momentum and play another good innings in a must-win quarter-final against Surrey.
- Jos Buttler – Runs or no runs, Jos Buttler in a T20 game is always a match-winner. Buttler has had an average tournament so far but he did play an 83-run knock against Derbyshire not so long ago. Buttler will be eyeing a decent show in this crunch game.
- Daryl Mitchell – Mitchell has not done much in the tournament but he brings a lot to the table. He bats in the middle order and is responsible for giving the team a strong finish. He also bowls 3-4 overs and is used as a partnership breaker. If Mitchell has a good day, Lancashire’s chances of a win will increase significantly.
Lancashire Squad: Dane Vilas (c), Keaton Jennings, Tom Aspinwall, Tom Bailey, George Balderson, George Bell, Jack Blatherwick, Josh Bohannon, Josh Boyden, Jos Buttler, Steven Croft, Colin de Grandhomme, Richard Gleeson, Tom Hartley, Matthew Hurst, Rob Jones, Danny Lamb, George Lavelle, Liam Livingstone, Saqib Mahmood, Daryl Mitchell, Jack Morley, Matt Parkinson, Phil Salt, Harry Singh, Luke Wells, Will Williams, Luke Wood
Surrey: Chris Jordan would be a slightly worried man heading into this game. They started the season on a high and lost steam towards the end of the league stages. The side comes here with three consecutive losses. In the last game, they went down by 3 wickets against the Essex Eagles. It is a must-win game, and Jordan would like to see the big guns fire in this game.
Will Jacks has been in great form, and the side would like to see a confident start from him and Laurie Evans in this game. Jason Roy must bring his experience to play and do well in the middle order with Sam Curran and Sunil Narine, who played an excellent knock in the last game. Jamie Overton, Tom Curran, and Jordan are good finishers and add power to this batting line-up.
Their bowlers have fared poorly in the last few games, and the side will need a good show from Sam Curran and Gus Atkinson with the new ball in this game. Sean Abbott and Jordan must bowl well in the middle overs to put Lancashire under pressure. The side will have high expectations from Narine, who is the most experienced bowler for the side.
Surrey Key Players
- Wil Jacks – Will Jacks has been the best batter for Surrey this season. The destructive batter has scored 541 runs in 14 matches for the team.
- Jason Roy – Roy returned to the team against Essex but could only score 28. However, he would be eyeing to make up for the poor show in the last game with a big inning in the quarter-final. An on-song Roy can make a huge difference for Surrey.
- Sunil Narine – Sunil Narine scored 78 runs in the last game and picked up a wicket too. Narine is not the same bowler he used to be but he is still very useful with the ball. He has also his batting abilities this season. Narine has taken 19 wickets in Vitality T20 Blast 2023.
Probable XI: Will Jacks, Jason Roy, Laurie Evans, Sam Curran, Tom Curran, Jamie Smith (wk), Jamie Overton, Sean Abbott, Sunil Narine, Chris Jordan (c), Gus Atkinson
Surrey Squad: Will Jacks, Laurie Evans, Sam Curran, Jamie Smith (wk), Tom Curran, Jamie Overton, Sean Abbott, Chris Jordan (c), Sunil Narine, Gus Atkinson, Tom Lawes
Lancashire vs Surrey Match Winner
Lancashire vs Surrey Match Prediction
Surrey is coming here with three losses, with immense pressure on the players. The top order hasn’t delivered the goods in the last few games, which concerns the team, and they must do well. Lancashire Lightning play at home, and their bowling attack comes here with a strong show. It will be a close game, but Lancashire has a slight edge.
Lancashire vs Surrey Match Both Team Top Batsmen
Phil Salt, Jos Buttler, and Liam Livingstone will be the key batters for Lancashire. Buttler scored 83 against Derbyshire while Salt scored 74 against Northamptonshire in the last game. Both players are match winners on their day. The same can be said about Liam Livingstone, who can turn the game on his head.
Jason Roy, Will Jacks, and Sam Curran will be the key batters for Surrey. Jacks has scored 541 runs in the tournament while Curran has batted in the middle-order and has played a couple of good innings for the team. Not much need to be said about Jason Roy, who is a match-winner on his day.
Lancashire vs Surrey Match Both Team Top Team Bowlers
Luke Wood took 3 wickets in the last game against Northamptonshire and looks in great form. Daryl Mitchell will also be a key bowler. Batters try to underestimate Mitchell and take him on which on many occasions results in their downfall. Spinners might get some help so Luke Wells will also be key.
Surrey has a good bowling lineup, with the likes of Sam Curran, Sunil Narine, and Chris Jordan at their disposal. Narine has taken 19 wickets this season while Curran can be threatening with the new ball. Chris Jordan is very good at death and picks a lot of wickets in the final overs of the inning.
