The County Ground in Worcester will host this match. This ground is considered a home ground of the Worcestershire side and has conducted a few domestic games of the same tournament previously. This stadium can accommodate a total of 4,500 people.
This ground has conducted 3 ODIs so far and offered an advantage to batters in a few previous matches. The team who has opted to bowl first here has delivered better than the batting team. At this location, whichever team wins the toss will want to bowl first and chase. The chasing team won all 3 ODIs that were played here.
With a good depth in the batting as well as with attacking fast bowling, Leicestershire will try to put pressure on Worcestershire. Worcestershire haven’t done any extraordinary performance this season so far except for their last match against Birmingham Bears as they failed consistently to perform in the first 4 games of the season. That might help Leicestershire to register a comfortable win against the hosts.
We predict that Leicestershire will defeat Worcestershire.
