Leicestershire will play their home ground Grace Road, Leicester.  But, their form is not so convincing to label them as ”favorite”.


Leicestershire is a sheer disappointment in this year. Their performance has been dropped drastically. Paul Horton’s side is showing no improvement and it will be a heavy challenge for them to subdue Lancashire. Leicestershire needs to step up to end their misery.

The side is heavily reliant upon Harry Dearden and Paul Ackermann. The bowling department also needs an overhaul or huge improvement to be competitive.

Lancashire will go to Leicester with high confidence. Their opening duo Keaton Jennings and Haseeb Ahmed are extremely dedicated and in good form. Their middle-order also looks stable. The likes of Glenn Maxwell, Graham Onions make their bowling very sharper. Glenn Maxwell won’t be the part of the match probably due to his World Cup campaign.

Captain Dan Vilas has high hope for this team.

Pitch Conditions

Green Road usually helps spinner because of its turning. However, pacers can also find good rhythm due to cloudy weather. Toss will make an impact on the game.

Weather Conditions

The weather will be partly cloudy at Leicester according to weather forecasts. The weather could be around 21degree Celsius. The chances of rain are very less though.
