LAN vs WOR, 5th Match| Lancashire Lightning vs Worcestershire Rapids WHO WILL WIN
The Big Picture
Lancashire Lightning and Worcestershire Rapids will kickstart their 2018 Vitality T20 Blast campaign when they take on each other on Thursday night.
The 2015 Blast winners, Lancashire endured an abysmal campaign last season, having finished at the seventh spot, but with Liam Livingstone taking charge of their T-20 outfit this time around, things are expected to change for the better. They also have Jos Buttler in their batting line-up, whose availability, however, will be stymied by International duties. Lancashire will also be boosted by their overseas signings in all-rounder James Faulkner (Blast winner, 2015) and rookie Aussie seamer Jon Mennie.
Speaking of their X-Factors, all-rounder Jordan Clark (326 runs in last ten matches), who took a triple-wicket maiden in the 2014 Quarter-final against Glamorgan, will form a vital part of their line-up along with Parkinson.

The match has assumed greater significance with David Warner all-set to assume a ‘leadership role’ once again after Dwayne Bravo pulled out of the tournament without unspecified reasons. Warner’s form has been woeful thus far, and an added responsibility might just bring the best out of him.
