Lancashire will take on Nottinghamshire in the 2nd Semi-Final of the T20 Blast at Edgbaston, Birmingham.
The match will start at 02:30 PM Local Time (07:00 PM IST).
Nottinghamshire and Lancashire dominated the North Group of the 2020 edition of T20 Blast to secure a place in the quarter-finals. While Nottinghamshire was the best team from the group, they were almost knocked out by Leicestershire in the quarter-final.
Thanks to the countback rule of the competition, they advanced to the semis. On the other hand, Lancashire had a very comfortable outing in the round of eight. They defeated a very strong Sussex side on their home turf by 45 runs. They will have momentum on their side.
