Date – August 28, 2019, Wednesday.
Match 28 – Lancashire Thunder vs Surrey Stars.
Time- 2:30 PM local time (7:00 PM IST).
Venue – Blackpool.
Lancashire Thunders are placed at the bottom of the table, while Surrey Stars are just a position above them. This being the last match of the tournament both the teams would want to end the tournament on the winning note. Lancashire Thunders have lost eight of their nine games so far and one game was a tie.
Surrey Stars has failed to impress this season, after winning the title last year they failed to put up a fight in defense of their title. Not making it to the finals day would be hurting but what was more hurting was how they played. After the first two games, it felt as if they are getting into the groove for their yet another final day but, the things turned and they have been anything but disappointing with both bat and ball on different occasions.
Head to Head:
In the previous 5 encounters, Surrey Stars has beaten Lancashire Thunder in four games. In the previous game, in this edition of KSL Surrey Stars, won the game by chasing the target down of 121 in just 14.2 overs.
Played-5, SST-4, LT-1.
