The pitch at Emirates Old Trafford would be helpful to the batters, and a run-fest could be expected. A typical batting surface suggests that it could be a high-scoring affair, and bowlers – both pacers and spinners – are expected to struggle to find breakthroughs. On this pitch, defending a total would be extremely difficult, so the captain who wins the toss will bowl first.

Keaton Jennings was instrumental in Lancashire’s 87-run victory over Nottinghamshire. He scored an impressive 55, propelling Lancashire to a difficult total of 178/7. In the end, the total proved to be more than enough, as Nottingham were skittled for 91 in their run chase.
