The second quarter-final of the Vitality Blast 2023 clash between Lancashire (LAN) and Surrey (SUR) is set to unfold at Old Trafford in Manchester on July 7. While Surrey enters the playoffs with three successive losses in close games, Lancashire are here with decisive victories in the final round of league play, even though they were technically behind their opponent.
With wins in five of their last six games, Lancashire have had a stellar performance in the final phase of the league stage. They batted first in four contests and won easily thanks to their formidable bowling line-up. Buttler deserves praise for rising at the perfect moment to get a few half-centuries but falling short of a worthy hundred. Even though they frequently lost one or two early wickets, their top-order batters have consistently performed well. Additionally, they have lost nearly six wickets per game on average. As a result, their opponent might think to exploit this section.
Surrey had recently put up some incredible totals with the intention of destroying their opponent by the end of the first innings, but this strategy has encountered some setbacks in the final phase of league games. However, their opening batters combined to score 1034 runs in total during the league stage, which is more than 50% of the total. As a result, middle-order batters have thus discovered a fantastic stage in which they can attack and score some crucial quick runs in their final overs. World-class all-rounder Sam Curran leads their pace attack. They claim five wickets on average every game as a team. They will work hard to replicate their winning ways.

Avoid Having These Players In Your Fantasy Sports Team
SUR | BAT
He has had three great opportunities to save his team, but he has only scored a total of 14 runs so far. Based on his recent performances, it is safe to look for other options.
LAN | BAT
Considering his batting position, he hasn't had the opportunity to bat in three out of the last five innings. It is safe to avoid him as they have solid top-order batting and he may not get the opportunity to bat to generate enough fantasy points for your team.
