Royal London One-Day cup is exactly at the half-way stage of the league matches and teams are fighting hard in the qualification race so far. Leicestershire and Warwickshire are currently at the third and fourth position of the points table. Both teams will need this win badly as it not only moves them up but pushes the other team slightly down in the qualification race. We expect a cracking contest between two of the top teams in the Royal London Cup.
Leicestershire posted a moderate score of 269 runs in their last match. Louis Kimber was the lone player in the top-5 to make a substantial score as the keeper batter Harry Swindles gave him good company with 70 runs. Beuran Hendricks and Chris Wright chipped in vital runs in the lower order in the late innings which proved vital.
South African duo of Beuran Hendricks and Wiaan Mulder took 3 wickets each and gave just 87 runs in their combine 20 overs. Chris Wright bowled economically with figures of 10-2-27-1. Roman Walker and Tom Scriven chipped in with 3 wickets between as they bowled out the opposition for 224 runs.

Warwickshire`s batting line-up was led by Robert Yates with 114 runs off 111 balls. Will Rhodes (76 runs) and Michael Burgess (58 runs) played vital fifties to build partnerships at the top. But their lower middle order did not capitalize and still they ended with par score of 310 runs on board.
Krunal pandya lead the spin attack with his figures of 3/51 in the last game claiming crucial wickets in middle overs. George Bartett and Oliver Dalby chipped in with 2 wickets each and held their nerves in the final overs of the chase as they won the match by 4 runs.

Leicester has dark and cloudy weather with 60% chances of rain on the match day. Rain might come in to trouble the teams in this match and bring DLS equation into consideration.
Grave Road will have good pace and carry for the seamers and batters will enjoy playing on this surface. The pitch will be a nightmare for the bowlers. We expect average scores to be around 180-190 runs in this match.
The pitch is good to bat on and no target is safe here so we expect both captains to chase the total if they win the toss. Rain threat might also come into their minds while at the toss.
Warwickshire has a strong batting unit with consistency and firepower in the middle order. They also have quality bowling attack but their pace attack lack experience. Leicestershire lacks solidity in their batting line-up but have depth and firepower for big hitters. Their bowlers too have performed to their potentials so far in the season. We expect Leicestershire to win this match as they have home advantage.
