LAN vs WOR: Lancashire are set to host Worcestershire in the second match of Royal London One-Day Cup. The match will take place at Old Trafford in Manchester on Wednesday. Both the teams will be keen to get off to a winning start and the onus is on the hosts. Lancashire had a disappointing campaign last year, while Worcestershire exceeded the expectations topping the table.
Worcestershire will come into the game as the favourites after having a strong campaign last year. However, Lancashire have recruited a top player in Glenn Maxwell who can make a difference. Maxwell has been joined by another Australian cricketer in Joe Burns.
Lancashire vs Worcestershire Team News:
Dane Vilas is set to lead the team in the absence of Livingstone for the initial stages of the tournament. Glen Maxwell and Joe Burns are expected to be integrated into the team very soon. Jos Buttler is also not available due to his involvement in IPL.
Worcestershire will certainly miss Moeen Ali who is playing for Royal Challengers Bangalore in the Indian Premier League. However, Wayne Parnell is an exciting addition for the team to look forward to.
