Northamptonshire (NOR) will take on Leicestershire (LEI) in the 48th game of the Vitality Blast T20 on Sunday, June 20, at the County Ground in Northampton, England.
Overcast conditions are expected for this game. The pitch at the venue has aided the batsmen with the average score being around the 172-run mark.
NOR vs LEI Dream11 prediction
Both teams are yet to win a game in this tournament, owing to which they are at the bottom of the points table. Leicestershire have nothing to show on the points table as compared to Northamptonshire who have only one point after one of their games got rained off. With both sides reeling, it will be interesting to see which team gets their first win on the board.
NOR vs LEI Dream11 team tips
Top tip: Best batsmen
Ricardo Vasconcelos of NOR will bat in the top three and has been one of their most consistent batsmen. He has consistently been amongst the runs this season and has a top score of 38.
Scott Steel of LEI opened the batting in the last game and scored 46. He has also got two fifties in the last five games and makes for a decent pick in the batting category.
Top tip: Best bowlers
Wayne Parnell of NOR has been bowling consistently. He has picked up four wickets in as many games in this tournament and the former South African international can also be a useful batsman.
Naveen-ul-Haq of LEI picked up two wickets in the last game in his allotted quota of four overs. He has picked up nine wickets in the last five games in this competition.
Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
Mohammad Nabi of NOR is one of the top all-rounders in this format. The Afghani is a well-travelled cricketer who can contribute consistently with both bat and ball. He should be in all fantasy cricket teams for this round.
Josh Inglis of LEI will be the best fit in the wicket-keeper category. He will open the innings and has the ability to exploit the field restrictions at the top. Inglis was also one of the top wicket-keepers in the Big Bash Down under.
