Royal London One-Day cup is slowing picking up momentum with teams entering the crucial middle phase of the league matches. This is a phase where teams will be looking to find their best XI and win crucial points to move up the points table. Leicestershire lost their last match after winning their first 2 matches and we expect them to make a strong come back in this match. Somerset are yet to open their points tally and will need to open their account soon as time is running out for qualification.
Leicestershire were bundled out for just 120 runs in the last game after two good batting performances in the first two matches. Wiaan Mulder has been their batting mainstay with 214 runs in 3 matches with a century and a fifty. Nick Welsh, Louis Kimber, and Aaron Lilley too were excellent with the bat in the earlier matches.
Their bowlers were not able to trouble the opposition in defending the paltry total in the last game. Wiaan Mulder (4 wickets), Tom Scriven (4 wickets), and Beuran Hendricks (6 wickets) have been their chief wicket takers so far. Aron Lilley and Chris Wright have chipped in with some crucial wickets so far.
Top players to bet on: Wiaan Mulder, Beuran Hendricks, Louis Kimber
Nick Welch, Rishi Patel, Louis Kimber, Lewis Hill (c), Wiaan Mulder, Arron Lilley, Beuran Hendricks, Tom Scriven, Harry Swindells (wk), Chris Wright, Roman Walker
Somerset failed to chase the target of 343 runs but their skipper Ben Green playing a scintillating knock scoring 157 runs off 83 balls with 10 boundaries and 12 sixes. George Bartett, James Rew, Lewis Goldsworthy, and matt Renshaw got starts but failed to convert them into big scores.
Somerset bowlers were taken for 342 runs in the last match. Sonny baker was the lone warrior with the ball last night with figures of 6/46 and Ben Green took 2 wickets but went for 82 runs in his 10 overs. Aldridge, Brooks, and Goldsworthy gave runs at over 7 RPO and did not pick even a single wicket last night.

Leicester is expected to have a bright and sunny weather with no chances of rain on the match day. We expect to have a full match with no weather interruptions.
Leicester is an excellent pitch for batting with good bounce and pace on the track. The seam bowlers will enjoy bowling with new ball but batters will have an upper hand. We expect scores to be in the range of 270-280 runs in this match.
Both teams will opt to bowl first as the pitch will be tough to bat early on due to the moisture trapped inside it. Both skippers will be comfortably chasing with a score on board.
Leicestershire will consider last match as a bad day in office and will look to continue their brilliant form in this match. Their batting and bowling unit’s bot h have been in good rhythm this season. Somerset will be dejected with the loss last night but their kipper injected some positivity with his spirited performances. But, we expect Leicestershire to win this match.
