On day two of the Vitality T20 Blast 2021, we will witness Lancashire Lightnings take on Leicestershire Foxes in a North Group match. This will be the second consecutive match for Lancashire after they played their opening match against Derbyshire at the same venue.
They won that match by six wickets while chasing a total of 168, which they downed with four balls to spare. Leicestershire Foxes have a spirited team under the captaincy of Colin Ackermann but won’t start as favourites in this clash.

LAN vs LEI Top Picks for LAN vs LEI Dream11 Match:
Top Picks – Lancashire
Jos Buttler is the star international player in this team and would want to step up after making just 30 runs in the opening match. His experience of 6783 runs speaks volumes of his class.
Liam Livingstone started this year’s campaign with a brilliant knock of 94 not out and would like to continue his good form. He is an excellent T20 batsman, an exhibition of which we saw in the last game.

LAN vs LEI Risky Captaincy Choices:
Aaron Liley is a good player to have in your fantasy team. However, his contributions on most occasions are quite minimal and lesser than what you would expect your captain to do.
M Parkinson has the ability to pick up wickets regularly but you would rather have a batsman as the captain to gain more points.
Player you should avoid:
Luke Wood has played 39 matches in his career and picked up 32 scalps, that’s less than one wicket per match. It is best to avoid him as he can be inconsistent at times.
