Question in detailLancashire Squad and Fixtures in NatWest T20 Blast 2017
The first two seasons of NatWest T20 Blast were of Lancashire's gusto. The side has been fluent throughout, making it to the final twice in the first two seasons. More interestingly, they ended being the winner of 2015 edition. The last season was their worst as they finished it 5th in the group stage. Lancashire is a side to have reasonably done well in the competition so far. Failing to reach the knockouts in the 2016 edition, the side has the potential to do it this time around. With Jordan Clark, Steven Perry, Dane Vilas and Liam Livingstone to their roster, Lancashire can fancy their chances to win the coveted NatWest title this year. Moreover, Buttler's presence in the Lancashire squad in NatWest T20 Blast 2017 makes them a team to really reckon with.
Lancashire opened their account with an efficacious win beating Durham by 52 runs. The match saw Jos Buttler at his brutal best with bat. Backed by Buttler's 39-ball 59 and Karl Brown's brisk 35, Lancashire piled up 192 with six down, a reasonably competitive total on the score board. When bowling to defend the total, Jordan Clark shouldered the responsibilities to make Durham suffer reaching the finish-line. However, coming into the second game of Lancashire NetWest T20 fixtures, the side suffered a disappointing loss to Leicestershire. Overall, they got a mixed start to their campaign.
