Bookmakers are offering new customers free bets on 2010 Friends Provident T20 cricket competition
Northamptonshire Steelbacks take on Lancashire Lightening live on Sky Sports 1 and HD 1 tonight.
It’s Steelback’ final Northern Group home game and a must win match if they are to have a realistic chance to overtake Durham Dynamos for the last quarter final spot.
Team captain Andrew Hall said: “It’s going to be a battle but we are ready for it. The team are well aware that we need to perform but are ready for the challenge. “We’ve shown we can match any team in the division and Thursday will be no different”.
Lightening can relax having already qualified for the quarter finals when securing their place with a win against Nottinghamshire Outlaws last night.
They miss star batsman Simon Katich who is on duty with Australia in their first Test Match against Pakistan at Lords.
Online bookmaker 888 Sport are offering odds of 13/10 for Steelbacks to win tonight with new customers eligible for a refund should their first bet lose.
Bet365 are best price 4/6 for Lightening who will be looking to in form Stephen Moore to maintain his recent big hitting record.
Moore blasted the Yorkshire bowlers for 50 in 24 deliveries last Friday and went one better last night when crashing 51 off 24 balls against the Outlaws.
Northamptonshire have struggled with consistency this year, but have a formidable team who made it to Finals Day last year.
