Lancashire are not in the best of forms heading into this match. They have lost 4 matches on a trot and will look to change their fortunes. They are currently 5th on the points table after winning three out of the 7 matches played by them.
Worcestershire on the other hand are in the best of forms this year in the Vitality Blast. They are first on the north group points table after losing only 1 match so far in the series. However, they lost their previous match and will look to get back on track against Lancashire in their upcoming match.
Lancashire lost their fourth match in a row by 5 wickets in the last match played by them. Batting first they could manage only 145 runs on board. Captain Liam Livingston was the top scorer with 34 runs and he was assisted by Daryl Mitchell who scored 31 runs. However, this score proved to be too less in the scheme of things.
There were not many positives from the bowling department either, as the opposition batters chased down the total with ease. Jake Blatherwick and Liam Livingstone picked up 2 wickets each in the match. Lancashire will look to improve all the aspects of their game to put up a better show in the upcoming match.

Contributions from captain Brett D'Oliveira and Ben Cox helped them reach this score. It however turned out to be quite low in the context of the game.
In the bowling department, there was nothing much as only 4 wickets fell in the course of play. Adam Finch bowled a great spell as he took 1 wicket while conceding only 22 runs in 4 overs. Worcestershire need to improve their bowling in order to get back in winning ways as soon as possible.

The pitch at Stanley Park in Blackpool is well-balanced. In the past four meetings, the average first innings score at this venue has been 132 runs. At the site, batting first should be the preferable choice, with the side batting first winning 100% of its matches.
The temperatures will be around 17 degrees Celsius with less chances of rainfall. The humidity will be 58% with moderate winds.
The match between Lancashire and Worcestershire will be played at the Stanley Park in Blackpool, England.
The team winning the toss should elect to bat first in this pitch and look to defend the score. The first few overs will be a task to navigate for the opening batsmen but once done should be a belter of a wicket to put runs on board.
When it comes to the Vitality Blast, any team can come on top on a given day. Both teams are coming into this game after losing their previous ones. However, Worcestershire are in some excellent form and are playing brilliant cricket which is why we predict that Worcestershire will beat Lancashire in this match.
