Chester-le-street is a bowling friendly venue here bowlers will enjoy the slowness and uneven bounce on the track. We expect have a bright, sunny, and humid climate throughout the match with no interruptions expected.
Chester-le-street is the home ground for the Durham, and we expect the average scores to be around 160-180 runs in this match.
Chasing is the best option in the T20 matches with batters nowadays confident of chasing down any target with their attacking mindsets. Both skippers will opt to bowl first if they win the toss.
Durham has a dynamic and experienced players in their batting line-up. Their bowling attack too looks complete with good pace and spin bowling options. Leicestershire has a nice bowling attack with quality pacers but lacks quality experienced spinners. Their batting unit too has been very inconsistent in the matches so far. We expect Durham to win this match and continue winning form in this match too.
DURHAM will win the match
