Keaton Jennings is still nursing an injury and will miss this match for Lancashire.
Lancashire will host Worcestershire in the Group 2 contest of the English One Day Cup 2021 on Sunday. Lancashire are undergoing a rough patch at the moment having lost their 2 matches. Massive defeat to Durham by 87 runs must have disappointed them a lot. With 3 wins, 2 losses, and a no-result they occupy the 3rd spot in the standings with 7 points.
Meanwhile, Worcestershire lost a close contest against Sussex in their previous match by 2 wickets in the final over of the match. Openers Brett D’Oliveira and Jack Haynes have scored 604 runs combined in this tournament which shows the duo has made a huge impact at the top of the order for Worcestershire. They currently occupy the 4th spot in the standings with 6 points.
