leic vs notts Match Prediction & Analysis

Vitality Blast has come to the final stages with every game changing the context of the qualification. But this match by no means affects the qualification for the knockout because are already qualified having topped the points chart while their opponents are out of contention and are reeling at the bottom of the points table. But, Nottinghamshire will look to continue their winning streak going ahead into the business end of the games. Leicestershire are free of pressure and will look to play spoilsport in other team`s chances in the coming matches.

Teams Preview

Leicestershire Preview

Leicestershire stayed ahead of the opposition in DLS equation to win their last game by 8 wickets and end their 3-match losing streak. Josh Inglis (35 runs) and Colin Ackermann (36 runs) took the attacking route despite the 2 quick wickets to end with 88/2 in 8.2 overs before rain halted the game.

Naveen-Ul-Haq struck twice in his first over to derail the opposition`s middle ordr. Gavin Griffith and Callum Parkinson bowled with control and had combined figures of 6.1-0-31-2 in the match. Colin Ackermann, Scott Steel, and Ben Mike leaked runs at nearly 10 RPO. Last night.

Top players to bet on:

Josh Inglis – Inglis is their highest run-getter with 371 runs at a strike rate of 165. He will look to give his team yet another good start at the top. He can take away the game easily with good support at the other end.

Naveen-Ul-Haq – Naveen has 21 wickets in this season and is the leading wicket-taker till now. He will have a big duel against the Nott openers Alex hales and Peter Trego who love to go big early in the match.

Leicestershire Predicted Playing XI:

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

Nottinghamshire Preview

Notts had a tricky chase of 61 runs in 7 overs last game. Their openers Peter Trego (29 runs) and Alex hales (31 runs) came all guns blazing to make a mockery of the chase in just 3.4 overs with an unbeaten partnership. Samit Patel will have a big role in middle order with Ben Duckett unavailable for selection.

Samit Patel and Dane Paterson bowled well with combined figures of 3-0-12-3 in a rain curtailed game to keep the target under their reach. Mathew Carter, Calvin Harrison, and Luke Fletcher are amongst the wickets and will form a terrific bowling attack despite missing Jake Ball.

Top players to bet on:

Alex Hales – Hales is having a phenomenal run scoring 413 runs at a strike rate of 180 in this season. He scored 31 runs off just 9 balls with 4 maximums in the last game to tear away the opposition.  

Samit Patel – Patel has scored 245 runs at a healthy strike rate of 135 & 14 wickets at an economy of 6.2 RPO.  He will play a pivotal role with the bat and ball in this match.

Nottinghamshire Predicted Playing XI:

Alex Hales, Ben Slater, Peter Trego, Tom Moores (wk), Samit Patel, Steven Mullaney (c), Lyndon James, Luke Fletcher, Calvin Harrison, Matthew Carter, Dane Paterson

Weather Conditions

Leicester weather is expected to bright and shiny with just 10% chances of rain on the match day.  We expect no rain in this game.   

Venue Details

Grace Road has been a good sporting track with plenty of runs of offer but at times it has been double paced with few balls stopping on the batsmen. The pitch misbehaves slightly as the match progresses.  We expect the runs to be around 160-180 runs in this match.

Toss: To Bat

Teams batting first has 3-2 win-loss record at this venue and pitch might become tough to bat in the second innings. Both captains will look to put a big score on board in this match.

LEIC vs NOTTS Winning Prediction

Nottinghamshire are on a roll and have been the team of the tournament so far in the league. They are the first team to qualify for the knockouts and their only weakness might be Ben Duckett`s absence in middle order. Leicestershire are in no pressure and it was visible in the last game as they brushed away the opposition easily. We expect them to continue their leeway in this match too against stronger team. But we expect Nottinghamshire to win this match.

NOTTINGHAMSHIRE will win the match.
