Weather Conditions

Leicester pitch has been subjected to wear and tear owing to used nature and we expect aid the bowler’s little bit more in this match. Leicester will have a bright and sunny weather which are very apt for a game of cricket.

Venue Details

Leicester has been a good scoring ground with average scores in the range of 350-400 runs in this season so far and we expect the trend to continue in this game too.

Toss: To Bat

We expect both captains to bat first if they win the toss as the pitch will be good to bat early on. Chasing becomes tough in the fourth innings especially.

Leicestershire rely heavily on their middle order batters in the batting department, and they have a good bowling department with good mix and pace and spin options available. Durham has been in superb rhythm with their batters making massive scores and they have excellent depth in their playing XI. Their bowlers toiled hard in last game and will be up for another big toil in this match. We expect Durham to win this match if the pitch helps bowlers take 20 wickets in the match.

DURHAM will win the match
