LL vs LT Dream11 Team Prediction: Loughborough look to make second spot theirs when they face off against Lancashire.
The way Lancashire Thunder have unravelled and fallen apart this edition of the Super League has made for tedious viewing. It has been a horrifying campaign for them, one where the side haven’t been able to muster together two meaningful displays, being wiped out by each and every side they have encountered.
Their previous defeat to Yorkshire Diamonds perfectly emphasised everything wrong with the side at the moment, one where they were on the losing side of things despite putting on 164 runs on the scoreboard. They allowed their opponents to win with 7 balls and 2 wickets to spare, further nailing their spot in the trenches of the points tally, one which has yet to register a win.
Elsewhere, Loughborough lightning did a huge favour to their top 4 aspirations after they ended up cleaning out Surrey Stars in what was a well-rounded display, one which saw them chase down the 148-run target set to them with ease. The batters came to the fore, complimenting a terrific showing by the bowlers to win by 5 wickets and further seal second place for the side, one they will be looking to nail down against an abject opposition today.

Pitch Conditions and Toss Prediction
A surface which will help out the pacers, the new ball will massively move around over here with the pitch bound to have some kind of grass be left on it. Along with the ever looming clouds hovering over, batting in the first 6 overs will be tough but if you’re ready to apply yourself in the middle, the pitch will play out nicely for the batters subsequently.
The side winning the toss here will be looking to field first.

Dream 11 Picks for LL vs LT
LL vs LT Dream11 Wicket-Keepers
She was run-out in the previous encounter but Amy Jones has scored some good runs for her side prior to that that, seeing us bring in the wicket-keeper from Loughborough Lightning in for this one. The opener is bound to score runs today against a lopsided bowling unit, one which has been decimated by every batting unit it has squared off against.

LL vs LT Dream11 Batsmen
Her 38 runs in the previous encounter were once again a testament to Harmanpreet Kaur, an innings which further reinstated the immense nous of innate skill set she has in her belly as a bat. She’s waged a lone battle for her throughout the league, scoring runs consistently despite getting no support at the other end, becoming the fulcrum of this side.
From the opposition we have gone ahead with Mignon du Preez after her exuberant innings of 48 in 25 balls in the previous fixture saw her get her side past the finishing line without any jitters, a boundary laden innings where she smashed her way to four 6s and three 4s.
With 45 in the least contest, we have picked out number 3 bat, Chamari Atapattu as well from the side.
LL vs LT Dream11 All-rounders
Her 23 runs in the opening slot along with on wicket further reaffirmed the fact that Hayley Matthews is the best all-rounder to have graced this edition of the Super league. She’s been a major reason for her side putting on such a solid display, intertwining her skill set with both the bat to pinch perfection.
We also have the side’s captain Georgia Elwiss come in for us while from Lancashire we have gone ahead with the formidable duo of Emma Lamb and Tahlia McGrath. Tahlia managed to get 29 in the previous encounter and the opener will continue to play a pivotal role in the batting department while Lamb will be quissential with the ball.
LL vs LT Dream11 Bowlers
Lancashire Thunder’s spinner Sophie Ecclestone continues to bear the brunt of her side’s bowling unit, being at the forefront of everything right the side have managed to string together. She along with Katie Cross have been a big reason for their side managing to give an equal fight to oppositions and if they are to register their first win today, the two will need to deliver a sensational performance today as well. Kirstie Gordon is the only player we have gotten in from the opposition.
