LAN vs NOR: Lancashire and Northamptonshire are two teams pretty much in the same boat. The two teams have started the Royal London cup in the exact same fashion by losing the first 2 matches before winning the 3rd. As a result, the two teams will now look to turn their fortunes and jump higher up in the North Group. However, at the end of Wednesday’s match, one of them will be on the losing side.
Northamptonshire, in particular, will hope that they have turned a corner after registering a comprehensive win by 194 runs against Warwickshire in their last match. They will also take confidence from their recent results against Lancashire where they have won a fair amount of matches.
