Durham will face Lancashire in the 66th game of the Vitality T20 Blast 2022. The Riverside Ground in Chester-le-Street will host this North Group game on Friday.
Durham have only managed to win two of the seven games played so far. They continue to languish at the bottom of the table. Their previous match against Warwickshire ended in defeat.
Beating first, Durham posted a respectable 141 on the scoreboard for the loss of seven wickets. The runs would not have been enough as their pitchers were unable to defend the total. Warwickshire crossed the line in just 18 overs, having lost just four wickets.
Durhams desperately need to win this bout to bounce back in the competition.
Lancashire, on the other hand, tops the table with six wins out of seven games. They have had a phenomenal campaign so far and won the last game against Yorkshire by four points.
Lancashire scored a total of 213 for the loss of five wickets, beating first. Despite having runs on the scoreboard, their bowlers had a hard time defending the total. However, they ultimately held their nerve to keep Yorkshire at 209/8 and win the game.

They performed as a unit with both the bat and the ball, with players stepping in with well-rounded contributions. Lancashire are clearly the more even side of the two and, that being said, they should beat Durham in this match.
