Yorkshire will face Leicestershire in their 3rd fixture of the Vitality Blasts 2022 on 29th May at Headingley, Leeds. Yorkshire had managed to reach the quarter-finals last season but failed to qualify for the semis. This year they are looking into good touch and will try to continue that momentum ahead of the clash against Leicestershire.

Yorkshire had finished 2nd in the north group last year with 15 points in 13 games. They had placed themselves at the 2nd position with 7 wins from 13 games they played. On the other side, Leicestershire had managed to win 6 games from 14 matches they played to score 12 points. They were in 6th place in the same group last year.

This season Yorkshire have started on a positive note with 1 win in 2 matches whereas Leicestershire are still struggling to claim points after 2 matches. It will be a big task for Lecesershrie to open their points account when they face Yorkshire on 29th May at Headingley, Leeds.

Yorkshire Preview

Yorkshire have built a strong squad this season after they failed to convert their good momentum into the results last season. This season they have already won a game and tied one and will face Leicestershire in the 3rd fixture at Headingley, Leeds on Sunday.

In the first match against Worcestershire, Joe Root led side showed a brilliant display of bowling as well as batting to claim the first points of the new season. While bowling first, Jordan Thompson showed his class again with the ball to clinch 3 wickets for 35 runs in his spell of 4 overs. They have restricted opponents to just 172 runs.

While chasing the target of 173 runs, Dawid Malan (33 runs from 30 balls) and Adam Lyth (40 runs from 24 balls), both set up a 70 runs stand for the first wicket. In the middle overs, Harry Brook had played a brilliant knock of not out 60 runs from 27 balls only along with captain Joe Root who scored 35 runs from 24 balls. With the help of a brilliant batting display, they have managed to win a game by 7 wickets.

While chasing the target of 184 runs in the second match against Lancashire, Harry Brook has shown his class again to score 72 runs from 48 balls along with Tom Kohler-Cadmore (scored 67 runs from 50 balls) but failed to register a win for his team as the match went a tie in the last over. Yorkshire have their strength in their batting unit and they will try to utilize that properly when they face Leicestershire in their next fixture.

Leicestershire Preview

Leicestershire had a terrible last season and they are yet to win a game this season also. They will face Yorkshire in the next match on 29th May which will be a big task for them to handle the pressure against an in-formed team like Yorkshire.

In both the matches they played, Leicestershire have displayed poor batting performances. In the first match against Durham, while chasing a target of 185 runs, they got bowled out to just 130 runs. Only Rishi Patel (scored 40 runs from 31 balls) and Ben Mike (scored 24 runs from 16 balls), could manage to set up a partnership. They lost that game by 54 runs.

In the next match also while facing Derbyshire, it was a complete batting failure for Leicestershire. They bowled well and managed to restrict an opponent to just 159 runs. While chasing the target of 160 runs, they couldn’t manage to set up partnerships and got bowled out to just 80 runs which resulted in a huge 70 runs lost against Derbyshire.

They have a pretty good bowling unit but their batting unit is looking completely out of form. They will try to solve this issue of the batting unit when they face an attacking bowling unit of Yorkshire in their next fixture at Headingley, Leeds on 29th May. 

Key players

Weather Conditions

The weather will be partly cloudy on match day, with a 3-5% chance of raining on match day. The maximum and minimum temperatures will be in the 13°C - 4°C range.

Venue Details

Headingley Ground from Leeds will host this match. This ground has a capacity of 1700 and has conducted a few international as well as domestic games so far. 

Toss: To Bowl

This ground has not conducted any T20Is matches so far but is mainly used for domestic purposes like Vitality Blast and County Championship. The pitch offers an equal advantage to batsmen as well as bowlers. But in general, captains prefer to chase the target here. At this location, whichever team wins the toss will want to bowl first.

By looking at the current form of both the squads, Yorkshire have an upper hand over Leicestershire in terms of batting as well as bowling. Leicestershire have failed terribly in the last 2 matches with the bat and it will be a huge task for their batters to face the attacking bowling unit of Yorkshire in their 3rd match.
 

We predict that Yorkshire will defeat Leicestershire.
