THE PREDICTION

With four wins from their opening five T20 Blast matches, Birmingham Bears are in excellent shape in the North Group ahead of Lancashire Lightning’s visit to Edgbaston. Following a trip up to Durham the day before, question marks do linger over the physical condition of the Lancashire players heading into this match, which could see them affected both in the field and with the ball. Whilst both sides boast strong top orders, the lower middle order of Birmingham looks slightly stronger and with home advantage in their favours, we’re leaning narrowly in favour of the Bears here.
