Insight

Lancashire and Birmingham have made light work of the T20 Blast group stage with both assured of a quarter-final place ahead of Sunday’s final round of first-round fixtures.

Birmingham clinched top spot in the North group on Friday in a Headingley run feast against Yorkshire, with the Bears posting the fourth-highest total in this season’s competition at 238-5.

Birmingham are guaranteed a quarter-final at home as group winners so there’s not much for them to do as Lancashire need a result to be sure of starting the knockout stages final at Old Trafford.

The Lightning missed the chance to secure home-court advantage on Friday, a dramatic batting slump condemning them to a shock loss at Worcestershire.

Skipper Steven Croft made one in this New Road debacle but has been a consistent performer with bat for Lancashire during the Blast campaign and can bounce back past his rush line.

Croft is averaging 38 in the Blast this year, scoring 25 or more runs in seven of his last eight outings and achievable 23 or more looks against a Birmingham bowling unit that has conceded more than 200 runs in three of his last five T20 Games.
