LAN vs YOR Dream11 Team: It's a matchup between two teams currently heading in a different direction. Yorkshire must be low on confidence after 3 consecutive losses in the tournament, while the Lancashire should have winds in their sails following a home win in the last game against the visitors. They look poised to seal the quarter-final spot with 4 wins in 5 matches and would look to strengthen their position in the points table. With 2 league matches remaining for Yorkshire, they are at 5th position in the points table. With home advantage, the Lancashire team looks better in terms of form. The Yorkshire team have experienced players like Adam Lyth and Dawid Malan, who can be fierce at the top order for the team. The middle-order looks solid with Will Fraine and Jordan Thompson providing the finishing touch to the team.
Whereas, the Lancashire team has experienced international players like Liam Livingstone and Dane Vilas who have been the driving force of the team. The players like Luke Wood and Tom Bailey have come good for the team, with the latter one has picked up 10 wickets in 6 matches. Along with them, Matthew Parkinson has also made sure that the bowling department has been exceptional to keep the opposition in check and churning out wickets in a consistent manner. It would be interesting to see which team comes over the top and make their position strong in the competition. Below, the LAN vs YOR fantasy team Dream 11 prediction is discussed.
