Lancashire Lightning have a 13 man squad on duty for Sunday's important Clydesdale Bank 40 match against Essex Eagles at Old Trafford (1.45pm start)
The game has all the hallmarks of an elimator from this season's competition, with both teams-level on 11 points-chasing second place in the Group C table and the last semi-final qualifying spot. Undefeated Somerset look in prime position to clinch first place in Group C, leaving Lancashire to battle it out with Notts and Essex for second.
The semi-final spots go to each of the 3 group winners plus the second placed side with the best record. If teams are level on points the tie breakers are (a) most wins, or if still level (b) higher net run-rate.
Currently the teams in contention for the best 2nd place finish are:
Lancashire Lightning: Steven Croft (capt), Karl Brown, Steven Cheetham, Gareth Cross (wkt), Paul Horton, Gary Keedy, Farveez Maharoof, Sajid Mahmood, Stephen Moore, Oliver Newby, Stephen Parry, Luke Procter, Tom Smith.
Essex Eagles: James Foster (capt/wkt), Mark Pettini, Adam Wheater, Owais Shah, Matt Walker, Ryan ten Doeschate, Graham Napier, Tom Westley, Tim Phillips, David Masters, Chris Wright, Tom Craddock, Jaik Mickleburgh.
