Lancashire Thunder are yet to register a win in the Kia Super League 2019. Their two points so far, came out of a washed out game and they will be looking to end the tournament on a winning note. Loghborough Lightning, on the other hand, still have a very good chance to make it to the semi-finals and will not want this match to slip.
The Lancashire Thunder vs Loughborough Lightning match will begin after two other matches on Tuesday- Surrey Stars vs Yorkshire Diamonds and Western Storm vs Southern Vipers.

 

Match Details:

The match between Lancashire Thunder and Loborough Lightning of the Kia Super League 2019 will take place at the Emirates Old Trafford in Manchester at 5:30 PM GMT on Tuesday, August 20.

Team News:

Lancashire Thunder

Coming off a half century in the previous match, Harmanpreet Kaur is probably the only bright spot among the batsmen in a rather dismal tournament for the Thunders with a total of 210 runs at an average of over 43. Likewise, Emma Lamb and Sophie Ecclestone are two more players who have come good for Lancashire with 8 and 7 wickets respectively. Captain Kate Cross is another player from the Thunders to keep an eye on.

Loughborough Lightning

Opener Amy Jones and Hayley Matthews appear to the in a good run of form. M du Preez, with a breezy innings in the last match, will be expected to come good again. With six wickets at an economy of 6, Sarah Glenn seems to be another good pick for fantasy leagues.

Predicted Playing XI

Lancashire Thunder

Harmanpreet Kaur, Sune Luus, Kate Cross (c), Alex Hartley, Sophie Ecclestone, Emma Lamb, Tahlia McGrath, Eleanor Threlkeld (wk), Sophia Dunkley Brown, Evelyn Jones, Georgie Boyce

Loughborough Lightning

Injury and Availability News:

There do not seem to be any injury concerns as of now. But the major concern Lancashire is the wins column, while that for the lightnings is things seem to be falling into place at the right time, with most players starting to come good.

Weather and pitch report

Good amount of rain is expected early in the day. We can only hope that we can see a full game of cricket without much intervention from rain.
The average second innings score at Old Trafford is significantly lower than that in the first innings. Unless the pitch turns out to be an absolute belter, teams might look to bat first and set a decent score on the board.
