leic vs warks Match Prediction & Analysis

Leicestershire Foxes are facing a daunting task as they take on the Birmingham Bears in the upcoming game of the Vitality T20 Blast, 2021. They have lost all their four games so far including the last one against Yorkshire Vikings where their attack was torn to pieces. The Bears on the other hand come into this game after a massive win against the Northamptonshire Steelbacks. 

Leicestershire Foxes have struggled with the ball in most of the games so far. Their bowlers have failed to execute plans and this would be a huge handicap against a team like Birmingham Bears that has a very powerful batting line-up. It will be interesting to see if the Foxes are able to turn around their fortunes here. 

Teams Preview

Leicestershire Preview

Decent batting and poor bowling has been the script for the Colin Ackermann’s side this season and they lost their fourth game in a row losing to Yorkshire Vikings by 18 runs. The side is under serious pressure at the moment and Ackermann would be looking for his players to make a stronger comeback in this game as their fate hangs in balance. 

Josh Inglis has scored runs in most games and the side would look at him to play another electrifying knock at the start along with Scott Steel. The middle order has done well with Arron Lilley, Rishi Patel and Ackermann scoring runs in earlier games. The side bats deep with players like Lewis Hill, Louis Kimber and Ben Mike to follow down the order. 

Their bowling attack has been torn apart by their opponents so far. Callum Parkinson and Ackermann must get them early wickets and bowl tight lines in this game for the side to compete. The likes of Lilley, Gavin Griffiths, Naveen-ul-Haq and Ben Mike are completely out of form and the side needs them to bowl according to the plan. 

Leicestershire Predicted Playing XI:

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

Warwickshire Preview

Will Rhodes’ side looks in sublime form with three back to back wins they have moved to the top spot on the points table for the North Group. They come here after a massive 55-run win over Northamptonshire Steelbacks. Rhodes would want his side to continue with the same flow of form and keep holding to their position on the points table. 

Ed Pollock and Pieter Malan would need to get the side off to a good start in this game and exploit the weaknesses in Leicestershire’s bowling attack. Sam Hain, Will Rhodes and Carlos Brathwaite make this batting line-up very strong in the middle. Jacob Lintott, Michael Burgess and Chris Woakes are clean strikers of the ball and the side would expect a good show from them. 

Danny Briggs bowled well in the last game and shall look to get the early breakthroughs with Chris Woakes. Brathwaite has been making good use of his experience so far in the season. Jacob Lintott’s match winning bowling effort in the last game would give him confidence. They have lots of options with the bowling having Brathwaite, Craig Miles and Dan Mousley in the team.

Weather Conditions

It will be cloudy skies over Leister on June 16 and this might offer some assistance to the fast bowlers. Overall the surface would be flat and is expected to see a high scoring game. Batsmen would enjoy their time on this wicket and the side that bats first would need a score in excess of 180 runs here.

Venue Details

Grace Road, Leicester has been a favourite venue for the batsmen with the flat track along with the fast outfield offering plenty of scoring opportunities for the batsmen. There isn’t much for the fast bowlers here once the ball gets old and spinners find it tough here due to the shorter boundaries.

Toss: To Bat

There have been big scores made at this venue and batting conditions have looked good throughout the two innings. However, it gets slightly slower in the second innings and chasing big scores can be difficult here. The side that wins the toss here would look to take advantage of the flat deck by batting first. 

LEIC vs WARKS Winning Prediction

Leicestershire Foxes come here with their spirits down. The side has lost all the games this season and has to improve upon its show in this game to keep hopes alive. Their bowling attack is in poor shape and they would need to make improvements here. Birmingham Bears on the other hand are riding good form and the side would be looking to seal off and easy win here. Based on form they would start favourites in this game. 

Birmingham Bears to win
