LAN vs LEI Match Prediction & Analysis

Leicestershire kept themselves alive in the competition with a controversy-ridden win over Nottinghamshire and will to looking to keep the ball rolling as they take on Lancashire in their upcoming match. Lancashire Lightning have already qualified for the playoffs and this match will have no impact whatsoever on their standings on the points table. With a likely quarter-final spot hinging on the result of this game for the Foxes, we expect them to come out all guns blazing on Sunday, 20th September 2020. The match will be played at Old Trafford Cricket Ground, Manchester.

Team Previews

Lancashire

Building on their last year's campaign, Lancashire have been brilliant this year as well. They lost just two matches in the group stage last year and have lost the same number of matches up until now in this edition as well. They have already qualified for the next round and this upcoming match is likely to act as a dress rehearsal to prepare for the all-important quarter-final.

Leicestershire Foxes are currently standing at the second position on the points table with 12 points to their name. While their net run-rate of -0.124 is far from ideal, it doesn't matter anymore. Lancashire Lightning are coming off a humiliating loss to Durham in their previous match and would like to ensure that they bounce back to the winning ways before the knockouts.

Chasing a total of 157 against Durham, Leicestershire's batting looked out of sorts as their three middle-order batsmen perished without troubling the scorers. So bad was their batting that they didn't even survive the allotted quota of 20 overs and bundled out for 83. Their bowling, however, looked decent with spinners taking the charge. Luke Wood, Danny Lamb, and Matt Parkinson picked up four wickets between them. Wood was the pick of their bowlers, returning with excellent figures of 2 for 16 in his 2 overs.

All in all, Lancashire have done well, but their performance in the last match certainly raises some doubts about them. They are an immaculately balanced side but would have to come back hard and strong against a spirited Leicestershire side that would be desperate for a win in this upcoming encounter.

Lancashire Playing 11

Liam Livingstone, Alex Davies, Steven Croft, DJ Vilas, Josh Bohannon, Rob Jones, Danny Lamb, Luke Wood, Tom Hartley, Saqib Mahmood, Matt Parkinson.


Leicestershire

Even though Leicestershire Foxes are still alive in the competition, there's only so much they can do. Apart from winning the upcoming contest, they'd have to hope for some other results to go their way. Having said that, they'll take that.

The Foxes are currently placed at the fourth spot on the ladder, tied with Durham in the North Group points table. Their net run-rate of -0.413 could prove to be the distinguishing factor should Leicestershire Foxes fail to qualify.

With only one win in their last three matches, Leicestershire Foxes aren't in a form they'd want to be at the back-end of the tournament. However, the thing that works for them is that they registered a win against Nottinghamshire in the previous match and have the momentum.

While they haven't been as consistent as they would have liked to be in the last few matches, Colin Ackermann's return to form is certainly encouraging for them. He slammed a brilliant fifty in the last match and will be looking to add more runs to his tally. With Aaron Lilley, Colin Ackermann, and Gareth Delany doing well with the bat, their batting appears to be in good hands. Their bowling appears to be a bit too over-reliant on Parkinson and Delany, but with surface likely to be slow, the spin pair will have a huge role to play. If Foxes perform to their potential, they are going to be a hard team to beat.

LAN vs LEI Betting Tips

It is perhaps the most important game in the tournament for the Foxes, who started off well but lost their way in the middle. Although Lancashire would not be impacted by the result of this match, they would not want to go into a knockout game with two back to back defeats behind them. Lancashire Lightning are playing this match at home and would be looking to utilize the familiar conditions. Considering that and the fact that they are an overall better team as compared to Leicestershire, betting on a Lancashire's win should be the way to go here.
