This is going to be a crucial clash as the away side, the defending champions will come out of the dressing room to defend their claim to the Cup title from Lancashire Lightning in their very first game. It’s likely that Nottinghamshire Outlaws will be able to defend their title since they have got new arsenal on their team in the form of Kiwi’s Ross Taylor, Chris Nash, and all-rounder Paul Coughlin. This is going to be an important game for the home team because the last time they have won a one day tournament it was back in 1999 but their recent glories would help them to achieve their long-lasting dream.
The clash will take place tomorrow May 17 at Old Trafford in Manchester and will begin at 06:30 PM Local.
So, let’s move forwards to LAN vs NOT team news and LAN vs NOT dream11 prediction.
The home team has their star player Jimmy Anderson back on their team as he was not selected by the English national team to play in the ongoing test series against Pakistan. Stephen Parry and Karl Brown are expected to feature in this game for the home team.
However, the defending champions named their 14 man squad who would go all the way to Manchester but Alex Hales was left out because of his Indian Premier League commitment and Stuart Broad as he was called upon by his nation to crumble the batting order of the Pakistanis in the ongoing test series.
