T20 Blast 2020: Durham vs Lancashire – Fantasy Tips
They are boosted with the addition of Liam Livingstone, who has been splendid in the recent past for whichever side he played. Further, they have the likes of Alex Davies and Keaton, who can make things fall in place. In bowling, Saqib Moahammad and Parkinson will hold the key.
They are finding it tough with the top batsmen in the lineup failing to find their form. Further, the middle-order is inexperienced and the bowling department is failing on a consistent basis. If there could be any player, who can change the fate of Durham, it has to bee Lees and Farhan Behardien. Coughlin has been consistent.
