Leicester pitch has been subjected to wear and tear owing to used nature and we expect the bowlers to have an upper hand in this contest. Leicester will have a bright and sunny weather which are very apt for a game of cricket.
Leicester has been an average scoring ground with scores in the range of 150-160 runs in this season so far and we expect the trend to continue in this game too.
Teams batting first has 4-3 win-loss record in their favour at Leicester this season and the captains might opt to bat first as the pitch might slow down as match progresses.
Leicestershire rely heavily on their openers to give a good start in the batting department, and they have a good bowling department with good mix and pace and spin options available. Northamptonshire have been struggling big time but has better results when compared to Leicestershire so far and they lack depth in their bowling department with just 5-6 bowlers. We expect Northamptonshire to win this match owing to Leicestershire`s lackluster home record.
Northamptonshire will win the match.
