LEI vs DUR Match & Analysis

Durham pulled one of the upsets of the Vitality T20 Blast 2021 so far as it managed to defeat a full-strength Yorkshire team. That win is certainly going to give it a lot of confidence ahead of this match against Leicestershire.

The Leicestershire Foxes have lost both the matches that they have played so far and are going to be under the pump for sure. There are some exciting players in the team but there seems to be something missing that is holding them back.

Is this going to be the match where Leicestershire finally manages to win its first match of T20 Blast 2021?

Match Prediction and cricket betting tips for Leicestershire vs Durham Vitality T20 Blast 2021. The match is going to be played at the Couty Ground, Leicester on the 13th of June 2021.

LEI vs DUR Team Previews

Leicestershire

Things have not gone to plan for Leicestershire so far. They have chased in the two matches that they have played so far and ended up on the losing side of both. Their bowling has been poor and unable to keep the runs down while the batting has not clicked so far.

Scoring 186 is not a bad effort in itself, however, it is just not good enough when the opposition scores 209!

Still, we think Leicestershire has a chance of getting its first win of the season in this match.

Josh Inglis, Aaron Lilley, and Colin Ackerman all got starts in the previous match and that bodes well for them going into the next match. They are also going to be playing at home (where they lost their previous match) and that cannot be discounted completely.

One of the batsmen needs to have a good game because there is enough depth in the lineup to be able to rally around to build a good total.

Naveen ul Haq and Callum Parkinson are the two bowlers that have been in good form for Leicestershire so far. They will challenge a Durham batting lineup that is not the strongest.

Leicestershire Playing 11

Scott Steel, Josh Inglis, Arron Lilley, Colin Ackermann, Lewis Hill, Rishi Patel, Louis Kimber, Ben Mike, Callum Parkinson, Naveen-ul-Haq, Gavin Griffiths.


Durham

It took an exceptional inning from Brydon Carse at number eight to be able to get Durham to a winning total in the first match. That is not something that is going to happen very often and we would be wary of placing too much faith in their batting lineup.

Cameron bancroft seemed out of touch, David Bedingham and ben Raine did not get going, and Sean Dickson was a disappointment as well. Hese are talented players and can change things around but you would rather come across them when they are in poor form.

Graham Clark played well at the top of the order but he is another player that can get out early with his high-risk approach.

The bowling attack for Durham is not very strong either. Paul Coughlin, Matty Poots, and Brydon Carse lead the attack wit Scott Borthwick and Ben Raine rounding things out. Not a weak attack but certainly one that the foxes will fancy taking down.

Pitch and Conditions

The conditions are expected to be good for cricket with the weather not expected to cause any interruptions. The pitch is going to be very good for battiong. Nearly 400 runs were scored in the previous match played here and another high-scoring encounter with plenty of boundaries can be expected.

A score of around 180 should be seen as just par batting first.

LEI vs DUR Betting Tips

We are going to back the home team to win this match. Leicestershire is a decent team with a good batting lineup and one that we can take advantage of the weaknesses in the Durham bowling lineup.

Bet on Leicestershire to win.
