The match will start at 02:30 PM Local Time (07:00 PM IST).
Nottinghamshire and Lancashire, the two teams from the North Group meet again, this time for a place in the final of the T20 Blast 2020. After finishing in the top 2, both of them went on to win their respective quarter-finals. While Lancashire had a comprehensive win over Sussex by 45 runs, Nottinghamshire tied the match with Leicestershire, winning on countback.
Nottinghamshire will be confident going into this game, knowing that the last time they locked horns with Lancashire, they had the better of their opponents, winning comfortably by 6 wickets and 3 over to spare. Lancashire, on the other hand, will be looking to take revenge and book a place for a shot at the title.
LAN vs NOT Weather Report for Semi-Final 2:
The weather at Birmingham doesn’t look good with reports suggesting 100% chances of rain. There is a reserve day but hopefully, the sun can shine and we get a game. The temperature will be around 13 degree Celsius.
Edgbaston has been favouring the batsmen lately. We have seen a couple of high scoring games here this season and this can be another good contest considering both are in-form teams.
