It is the 16th game of the T20 Blast 2023, and we expect an interesting contest between Lancashire Lightning and Notts Outlaws. Lancashire Lightning come into this game with a big win against the Leicestershire Foxes and would look to strengthen their position on the points table. The Outlaws also made a promising start to the season, winning their first game against the Derbyshire Falcons.
Lancashire Lightning have the home advantage, and they are difficult to beat at home. Their bowlers have done well in both games, and it will make the team confident. Notts Outlaws failed in both games against Lightning last year, and they need a better show here. It's the early part of the season, and both sides will look to build form. We will have an interesting game here.
Liam Livingstone's side has made a perfect start to the season. They have won both games comfortably and put up an electrifying performance with the ball in their 8-wicket win against the Leicestershire Foxes. Livingstone would look to carry on with this momentum as they take on the Outlaws, who also did well in their first game.
Philip Salt and Luke Wells form a formidable opening combination and would like to deliver a positive start. The middle order has a lot of experience, and they will expect a good show from Steven Croft, Daryl Mitchell, and Liam Livingstone. Colin de Grandhomme, George Bell, and Tom Hartley are good hitters and make this line-up formidable.
Luke Wood and Saqib Mahmood shared three wickets each in the last game, and they will look for early wickets to put the opponents under pressure. Colin de Grandhomme and Mitchell bring experience to this attack, and they shall like to keep the scoring rate under check. Matthew Parkinson and Wells add variety to the attack.

Steven Mullaney's side did well with the bat in their opening game against the Derbyshire Falcons. They chased a big score clinically with a good show from their top order. Mullaney would like a better performance from his bowlers as they are up against a strong batting line-up in this game.
Joe Clarke batted well in the last game and would aim for a big opening wicket stand with Alex Hales in this game. They have good players in the middle order and shall need runs from Colin Munro, Matthew Montgomery, and Tom Moores. Mullaney and Lyndon James add strength to this batting line-up down the order.
Their bowling attack faces a huge challenge, and they need good spells from Shaheen Afridi and Conor McKerr. Samit Patel, Mattew Carter, and Mullaney must bowl in the right areas and prevent Lightning from scoring quick runs. Montgomery and Lyndon James add variety to this attack, and they must do well.

The skies over Manchester would be clear. Batting conditions will be challenging as the bowlers will get the ball to move in the early overs. The wicket is flat, and batsmen can score runs once they get their eyes set on in. The side batting first shall be happy to have 170 runs on the board in this high-pressure contest.
Old Trafford, Manchester, has a flat surface, but the ground also assists fast bowlers in the early overs when they can get the ball to move. Batsmen can play their strokes as the ball comes onto the bat nicely. Spinners have also done well here as the ball grips the surface and turns.
The last game here witnessed batsmen struggling in the first innings as the ball moved and created problems for the batters. The wicket got better in the second innings. Hence, we expect the two captains to have little hesitation in bowling first upon winning the toss.
Notts Outlaws are coming here with a win, but their bowling attack failed to execute its plans in the last game. They will need a better show against the strong batting line-up that Lancashire Lightning has. Lancashire Lightning play at home, and their bowling attack looks great. It gives them a slight edge.
