Though Lancashire will be missing their two heavyweights in Jos Buttler and Liam Livingstone who have joined the England squad for the upcoming series against Sri Lanka, they pose a strong squad and are well equipped to challenge the mighty Nottinghamshire Outlaws who are sitting comfortably at the 2nd position in the points table.
Joe Clarke has been a revelation so far and he is this close to find a place in the England national team. He is scoring runs consistently and knocking the doors of the selectors real hard.

Standings of T20 Blast 2021 points table
Who will win today match: Nottinghamshire outlaws start the game as pure favorites as they have a well rounded side and they can topple Liam Livingstone less Lancashire rather easily.
Nottinghamshire have a pretty strong batting unit and with Lancashire’s bowling not inspiring much confidence, it will be a massive task for Lancashire to restrict the outlaws.
Lancashire will have to hope for a mad knock from Finn Allen upfront to take them to a respectable total if they are batting first as there’s no way they can defend a par total with their bowling attack.
Today match score: The average first innings score in here is 170
Today pitch report: The wicket aids spinners and will be on the slower side but should be a decent batting strip
Who won yesterday match: Nottinghamshire won by 2 runs against Derbyshire
