In a very important game of the North Group in the Vitality T20 Blast, 2022, Durham Cricket would take on the Leicestershire Foxes at their home ground. Durham went down against the Yorkshire Vikings in the last game which has pushed them down on the points table. The Leicestershire Foxes come here with a big win against Worcestershire Rapids, and this would make them confident.
The two sides had met earlier in the tournament where Durham had registered a big win, and this would add to the side’s confidence. The Foxes come here with a strong performance, and they would like to carry on with the momentum. The stakes would be high for both teams and we expect to see a close contest where the key players on both sides have to be at their best.
Ashton Turner is back in the side, and he would be leading them in their most important game of the season. They lost against the Yorkshire Vikings in the last game by 65 runs and currently sit 8th on the points table and shall be looking for a win. They had defeated the Foxes earlier in the season and this would add to their confidence. A win here would keep the side in contention for a place in the next round.
Graham Clark and Michael Jones have made runs and they must deliver a good start in this game. Oliver Robinson played well in the last game, and he will look to build partnerships with Ned Eckersley and Turner. The skipper must play well as this has been a poor season for him. Ben Raine, Paul Coughlin, and Liam Trevaskis would be tasked with adding quick runs down the order.
The bowling attack hasn’t looked good since the start of the season and the new ball pair of Paul Coughlin and Ben Raine shall have to deliver a strong performance. Trevaskis has lots of experience and he must do well in the middle overs with Andrew Tye. The side would also look for good spells from Scott Borthwick and Raine in this game.

Colin Ackermann’s side registered a massive 8-wicket win against the Worcestershire Rapids in the last game. It was a much-needed victory for the side, and this would restore the confidence in the camp. They must win this game to be on the hunt for a place in the next round. Ackermann would be aware of Durham’s strengths having already lost against them and want his players to level it with a win here.
Nick Welch played well in the last game, and he would look to set up a good opening wicket stand with Harry Swindells. In the middle order, Arron Lilley is looking good and must steer the innings with Rishi Patel and Lewis Hill. Ackermann, Wiaan Mulder, and Ben Mike add to the side’s strengths down the order.
They have an experienced bowling attack, and the side would need a good show with the ball from Naveen-ul-Haq and Callum Parkinson with the new ball. Mulder shall have to bowl good lines in the middle overs along with Rehan Ahmed and Ben Mike. Ackermann will have to bring his experience to play and keep the scoring under check.

Chester is likely to see cloudy skies on June 19. The wicket is expected to offer seam movement to fast bowlers which will make it challenging for the batsmen. Batsmen need to play to the merit of the ball. The side batting first would need a minimum of 160 runs to be safe on this wicket.
Riverside Ground, Chester-le-Street is a small ground and has shorter boundaries around the square. Batsmen who get their eyes in have done well as they can clear the boundary rope easily. However, the wicket here is lively and fast bowlers have earned their rewards from this track. Spinners have struggled as the wicket doesn’t offer turn.
Sides chasing scores have always had an advantage at this venue as the wicket offers assistance to the bowlers in the first innings. The wicket gets easier to bat on as the game progresses. Hence, we expect the side winning the toss to have no hesitation in opting to bowl first in this game.
It is expected to be a close contest as the stakes would be high for both teams. Durham Cricket has struggled with consistency, as their top and middle-order haven’t been scoring runs. Leicestershire Foxes come into this contest with a massive win, and they would have their confidence high. This would put them slightly ahead of Durham in the game.
