Date- August 23, 2019, Friday.
Match 23–Lancashire Thunder v/s Yorkshire Diamonds.
Time- 2:30 PM local time (7:00 PM IST).
Venue – Scarborough.
Lancashire Thunder is last on the points table while Yorkshire Diamonds are just one place above them and are technically out of the race for a semi-final spot. In their previous match, Yorkshire Diamonds had failed to chase down a target of 127 set by Southern Vipers, scoring just 124 runs in their full quota of 20 overs.
Lancashire Thunders, on the other hand, has been too heavily dependent on Harmanpreet Kaur to do the bulk of the scoring. Their last game was a rain-curtailed game which they lost by 36 runs a huge margin by T20 standards.
Both the teams would look to win and play for their pride as we enter the last week of the tournament as they are out of the finale race they can make a few changes to the playing 11 which might bring new energy to the field.
