leic vs north Match Prediction & Analysis

Leicestershire and Northamptonshire are struck up at the bottom of the points table like a traveller caught up in the mud pit. Time is running out fast and they need to find some crucial victories before the campaigns end up in the group stages themselves.

Both teams started off with a string of 5 losses on a trot but bounced back to win matches in a row. Their run came to a halt with losses in their previous encounter. Both teams will look to push the other team to the bottom of the points table with a victory in this match.

Teams Preview

Leicestershire Preview

Leicestershire`s top order suffered a collapse as their scorecard read 59/5 in the 11 overs. Lewis Hill (59 runs) lead their comeback with his valiant fifty and shared important partnerships with Rishi Patel (14 runs) and Louis Kimber (23 runs) played crucial cameos to take their team to a competitive total of 156 runs.

Their bowling unit failed to disturb the opposition's momentum as their opening pair made a 103-run partnership. Callum Parkinson and Naveen ul Haq took a couple of quick wickets in middle overs but it was a little too late. Colin Ackerman and Scott Steel bowled pretty well but failed to take wickets and gave runs at 8 RPO.

Top players to bet on:

Josh Inglis – Josh Inglis is their key batsmen this season and has scored 306 runs at a strike rate of 170+. He will look to give yet another quickfire start with the bat in this match too.

Callum Parkinson – Parkinson has 12 wickets in 9 matches at a superb economy rate of 7.3 RPO despite predominantly bowling in the power play and death overs. He had bowling figures of 4-0-20-1 in the last game.

Leicestershire Predicted Playing XI:

Scott Steel, Josh Inglis (wk), Arron Lilley, Colin Ackermann (c), Rishi Patel, Lewis Hill, Ben Mike, Callum Parkinson, Louis Kimber, Naveen-ul-Haq, Gavin Griffiths

Northamptonshire Preview

Northamptonshire faced an uphill task of chasing 225 runs and they ended up 82 short of target.  Rob Keogh top scored with 36 runs while Adam Rossington and Wayne Parnell got 20+ starts and failed to convert it into a big score. Six players were dismissed for single-digit scores last night.

Mohammed Nabi was their standout bowler with figures of 4-0-23-1 while the remaining bowlers gave away 201 runs in the 16 overs. Tom Taylor and Brandon Greaves picked up a wicket each but were not able to restrict the opposition's scoring rate.

Top players to bet on:

Wayne Parnell – Parnell has 120 runs and 6 wickets in the 9 matches so far. He is a quality player who can contribute effectively with the bat and ball.  We expect him to make a big score in this match.

Mohammed Nabi – Nabi has scored just 83 runs in his 4 outings with a strike rate of 130 but his bowling has been very effective with 3 wickets at a frugal economy rate of 6.2 RPO. He opens the bowling attack and is not allowing the batsmen to play freely.

Northamptonshire Predicted Playing XI:

Ricardo Vasconcelos, Adam Rossington (c & wk), Wayne Parnell, Mohammad Nabi, Rob Keogh, Saif Zaib, Charlie Thurston, Tom Taylor, Graeme White, Brandon Glover, Ben Sanderson

Weather Conditions

Leicester will have dark and cloudy weather on matchday with just 20% chances of rain. We expect the rain to make only a short appearance in this match.

Venue Details

Leicester is a batsmen's paradise as three out of the four matches played here had scores in excess of 190 runs. Bowlers need to execute their plans to perfection as there is no margin for error here.  We expect the runs to be around 180-190 runs in this match.

Toss: To Bat

Teams batting first have a 3-1 win-loss record at this venue and the only time chasing team won was when the target was less than 170 runs. Any score above 180 runs will be tough to chase.

LEIC vs NORTH Winning Prediction

Both teams are slightly short of experience and lack players who can be X-factor to the team. Leicester batting unit has fared better than their opposition with their top-4 players scoring few runs consistently. Their bowling unit lacks a quality spinner but has performed well as a unit.

Northamptonshire relies heavily on their top-3 to score runs with very little contribution from the middle order so far. Their bowlers have been smacked to all parts of the ground the last match.

We expect Leicestershire to win this match!
