LEI vs YOR Match Preview
It is unlikely that Leicestershire will make too many changes to their team ahead of their first win in the campaign. It is difficult to imagine them changing their composition after their first win in the tournament. There are no injuries reported for this match and all their key players will be available for this game. The right-handed middle-order batsman Colin Ackermann will play positively anyhow. He has some international experience playing in big competitions such as Bangladesh Premier League and Men's Hundred.
One of the other significant bowlers for Leicestershire is Josh Hull. This 18-year-old young left-arm seamer will be playing just the third game in the competition on Tuesday. In his second appearance for his side, he picked up 3 wickets including that of the Durham openers in one over. Another good bowling alternative is Naseem Shah. This right-arm fast bowler had to wait for a while before picking up his first wicket of the match in their last encounter against Durham. However, with his genuine pace, he is always going to cause problems for the batters.
The Yorkshire Vikings team has succeeded in turning around their fortunes during the season. You can expect the Yorkshire Vikings team to remain unchanged ahead of the game against Leicestershire. One important fact that can be a problem for Yorkshire is, none of their red-ball cricket internationals are available for this match. Apart from that, there are no injury updates available for this game. However, the English white-ball international Dawid Malan is in great form and is available for this game.
Malan played a significant knock in the last game on Sunday. He hit 3 sixes and 9 fours in the game. Another crucial player for Yorkshire is Ben Mike. This bowling all-rounder has been a major part of the upturn of Yorkshire's fortunes in the recent past. He has picked up 5 wickets from the last couple of games. The Namibian seamer David Wiese got rid of the big fish Wayne Madsen in the last encounter. He has gone wicketless in just one of the T20 Blast matches thus far. Yorkshire was off to a bad start in the competition but now they will be looking to win 4 games in a row.
The weather for this game will be ideal for a game of cricket. The maximum temperature expected during the match is 18 degrees and the minimum will be close to 8 degrees. There is practically no probability of getting showers through the game.
