Northamptonshire slumped to yet another defeat in the Vitality T20 Blast, this time to Yorkshire, and continue to stay at the bottom of the table. They'll meet Leicestershire in their next game, on 17th August, at Grace Road, Leicester. Leicestershire, too, have had a tournament similar to Northamptonshire and are second from the bottom spot. They, however, can climb one spot in the ladder, but that too would be inconsequential as far as the qualifications for the next round is concerned.
Leicestershire may have failed to qualify for the next round, but their campaign hasn't been as dismal as it has been for their rivals in their upcoming game, that is, Northamptonshire. They've won five games and lost seven adding to 11 points in total. Tied on the net run rate with Derbyshire, they'll be looking to register a win and climb up one spot.
Their last game was washed out due to rain, against Derbyshire, just when the match was hanging in balance. Prior to that, they registered a win against Worcestershire by a tiny margin of five runs.
Leicestershire kept chipping away at the wickets when Rapids looked all set to get to a win. It was Worcestershire's game to lose with 30 needing off final three overs, but some exceptional death bowling by Leics' bowlers closed the match with Rapids five runs short of the total. Their fielding was exceptional towards the end which helped in getting rid of Callum Ferguson, who was found short of his crease at the personal score of 68.

The Steelbacks suffered a crushing defeat at the hands of Yorkshire who are now in a strong position to qualify for the playoffs. It's a three-way horse race between Yorkshire, Nottinghamshire, and Warwickshire with the top finisher among these three getting a berth in playoffs.
Warwickshire were heavily dependent on a Northamptonshire's win to make their way easier for qualification, but Northamptonshire not only failed but failed badly. Batting first on a road-like batting surface, Northamptonshire's batting was once again about one man with Joshua Cobb scoring 68. There was no one else who could accompany him and they were eventually restricted to 162.
Their bowlers started off well with the ball by dismissing Tom Kohler-Cadmore on his first delivery. However, David Willey and Adam Lyth unleashed themselves on Northamptonshire bowlers with Willey scoring 79 off just 44 deliveries. Adam Lyth finished with 66 runs off 41 deliveries. Yorkshire finally chased down the total with 27 balls to spare and seven wickets in hand.
Charlie Thurston, Ben Duckett, Josh Cobb, Alex Wakely, Ben Curran, Luke Procter, Tom Sole, Graeme White, Nathan Buck, Gareth Wade, Richard Gleeson.
While it will be a match of little significance, teams will be looking to redeem themselves and end the tournament on a high. Leicestershire have been a better team in the tournament as compared to Northamptonshire and the recent results have gone the same way as well. For above-mentioned reasons, they are better placed to win the upcoming fixture and end the tournament with a win.
