Date- August 25, 2019, Sunday.
Match 25 – Lancashire Thunder v/s Loughborough Lightning.
Time- 11:30 AM local time (4:00 PM IST).
Venue – Nottingham.
Loughborough Lightning has qualified for the finals day of KIA Super League 2019 by winning their previous game against Surrey Stars.
Loughborough Lightning registered their fifth win of the tournament by chasing down the target of 147 set by Surrey Stars. Chamari Athapaththu and Mignon du Preez made important contributions with the bat and spent some time in the middle, which could prove fruitful going into the final stage of the tournament.
Lancashire Thunders have nothing to lose and would go into the last two games playing for their pride. They have had a disappointing season so far and would love to end this tournament on a high and give their fans something to cheer about.
