Lancashire will lock horns with Durham in the 81st match of the Vitality Blast 2023 at Old Trafford in Manchester on June 18. Lancashire have won five of their nine matches and are in the fourth position in the North Group. Durham, on the other hand, have won and lost four matches each and are fifth in the rankings of the North Group.
Lancashire had squared off against Northamptonshire in their last match, where Northamptonshire won the toss and elected to field. Lancashire did not have the start they would have hoped for, as they were reduced to 25 runs at three wickets. But then Steven Croft and Daryl Mitchell joined hands for the fourth wicket and amassed 146 runs. This helped the team post a huge total of 204 runs for the loss of seven wickets. Chasing such a total, Northamptonshire needed to have a good start but did not have so. They kept losing wickets; as a result, by the end of the innings, they could only reach the score of 169 runs. Lancashire won the match by 35 runs.
Durham had squared off against Derbyshire in their last match, where Derbyshire won the toss and elected to field. Durham started pretty well with their solid opening partnership of 44 runs. They had a few other significant partnerships but kept losing wickets at regular intervals. They managed to post a good total of 178 runs on the board. Derbyshire started really well with their chase, with their opening batter Luis Reece scoring a fantastic fifty. They slowed down a little in the middle overs, and the match became interesting as it went to the very last ball. In one of the rare events of the game, both teams tied the score after the end of both innings.
