THE PREDICTION

A cracking Vitality Blast quarter-final is expected here at Hove against the two sides arguably most fancied to win this competition before the start of the season. Sussex Sharks will be without England bowlers Chris Jordan and Jofra Archer due to the IPL. However, fast bowler Tymal Mills is available in a side packed with top level experience provided by the likes of Luke Wright and Ravi Bopara with the bat. Lancashire are boosted by the return of Keaton Jennings and will be looking towards the likes of the big hitting Liam Livingstone, leg-spinner Matt Parkinson and fast bowler Saqib Mahmood to guide them to Finals Day. In what is expected to be an extremely tight encounter, the big match experience of both Wright and Bopara for the Sharks should prove the difference between the two teams here.
