Northamptonshire Preview

After a season to forget last year, Northamptonshire didn’t start well this year also. They failed to register a win in the first match but finally managed to claim points in the next match against Durham. Unfortunately, their last match against Nottinghamshire went resultless and hence they will try to claim points in this match against Leicestershire.

Northamptonshire’s bowlers and batters, both failed to deliver fine cricketing skills against Birmingham Bears in the first match. After conceding 207 runs against BB, they got bowled out to just 81 runs and lost the match by a huge margin. They have managed to overcome that issue in the next game against Durham. With the help of Freddie Heldreic's (3 wickets for 22 runs in 4 overs) brilliant spell, they managed to restrict opponents and won the game by 31 runs.

In the last match against Nottinghamshire, the team's bowlers bowled superbly to put pressure on a well-experienced batting unit of Nottinghamshire. Matthew Kelly has delivered one of the key spells of this season to pick up 4 wickets for 29 runs in his 4 overs. They have managed to restrict opponents to just 140 runs in 18 overs, but the rain had favored opponents and the match went resultless.

It will be a big task for the team's bowlers to continue a good form against Leicestershire's batting unit which performed well against Yorkshire's bowling attack. They will try to win the game against Leicestershire to move ahead in the top 3 positions of the group.

Leicestershire Preview

With a terrible batting display in the first two matches of the season, Leicestershire were pointless till the last game this year. But they have made a superb comeback in the last match against Yorkshire and have shown some fine cricketing knocks with the bat. Now they will face Northamptonshire on 1st June in the next fixture.

Despite Rishi Patel’s knock (scored 40 runs from 31 balls) and Ben Mike’s support (scored 24 runs from 16 balls), the team’s batting order collapsed against Durham while chasing a target of 185 runs in the first match. As a result, they lost the match by 54 runs. Their next match against Derbyshire was also a nightmare for their batters as they managed to score just 80 runs while chasing 159.

After two consecutive big defeats, they made a strong comeback against Yorkshire in the last game.  Captain Colin Ackermann’s 56 runs from 33 balls and Rishi Patel’s fine knock of 57 runs from 37 balls, helped their team to put 188 runs on the board against an experienced bowling attack of Yorkshire. While defending a target, Ben Mike (who took 3 wickets for 16 runs and Naveen-ul-Haq who took 4 wickets for 34 runs, came to the rescue and the team managed to register their first win of the season.

They are having a good momentum with them ahead of this fixture against Northamptonshire on 1st June. They will try to execute their plans well on the ground and would like to claim 2 points on Wednesday.

Key players

Venue Details

County Ground from Northamptonshire will host this match. This ground is a home ground for Northamptonshire and has a capacity of 6500 and has conducted just two international games so far. 

Toss: To Bowl

This ground has conducted just 2 ODI matches so far but hasn’t conducted any T20Is. This ground is mainly used for domestic purposes like Vitality Blast and County Championship. The pitch is in favor of batsmen and it’s easy to chase down the targets on this ground. At this location, whichever team wins the toss will want to ball first.

Northamptonshire have good bowling but they failed to restrict opponents while bowling in death overs which cost them a few games. On the other side, Leicestershire have shown superb skill with the bat in their last game against the attacking bowling unit of Yorkshire. It will be difficult for Northamptonshire's bowling unit to put pressure on Leicestershire’s in-formed batters.
 

We predict that Leicestershire will defeat Northamptonshire.
