We are still a few yards away from the knockouts in the Vitality T20 Blast, but we already have few of our quarter-finalists. Nottinghamshire Outlaws are one of the teams that are already set to go through to the next round, making the remainder of their contest dead-rubbers. However, considering that the other team still have an outside chance to qualify for the next round, those remaining matches will not be dead-rubbers for them. Leicestershire are still well and truly in the business to qualify, but would need to win their upcoming contest to stay in the hunt. Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire are set to meet each other Grace Road, Leicester, on 18th September 2020.
While another couple of wins should place Leicestershire at the third spot on the ladder, their poor net run-rate could be a concern as far as progression to the quarter-finals is concerned. Given that, they'd not only have to win their two remaining matches but would also have to do so with as big margins as they can.
There couldn't be a worse time to lose a match for Worcestershire than their last match. Leicestershire's recent loss that came at a time when they desperately needed to win to keep things in control. They appeared to be in control at the half-way mark but a couple of back to back losses has set them back. They lost to Durham a couple of days ago and then lost to Derbyshire in the previous encounter.
Having to chase down a total of 147 to gather two important points, Leicestershire Foxes were certainly the happier team midway through the match, but it all changed drastically as the match progressed. It was a strange innings from the Foxes as they never appeared to have the intent to push the scoring rate and finish the match early. Nick Welsh and Gareth Delany got them off to a terrific start, adding 35 runs in the first four overs, before Delany got dismissed. Barring Aaron Lilley, who had otherwise been in pretty good form, almost all of their batsmen got starts. George Rhodes and Harry Dearden laid down a good foundation to launch a late assault, but that late assault never came as the Foxes lost by four runs.
Earlier in the day, Foxes' bowlers did a terrific job of keeping the Falcons to a manageable total. Callum Parkinson was once again brilliant, picking up two wickets for 29 runs in his four overs. Athough expensive, Gavin Griffiths' four overs played a defining role. He picked up four important wickets at an expense of 35 runs in his four overs. With as many as eight bowling options available, Leicestershire have ample variety in their attack. Bowling certainly appears to be the Foxes' stronger suite, especially with surfaces slowing down considerably over the last couple of weeks.
Overall, the Foxes haven't done as poorly as their position on the ladder suggests. They've had a couple of unfortunate losses in the matches that they should have won, putting them into a must-win position. Leicestershire have an excellent team on paper, but would have to play out of their skins to get past the Outlaws. Well, they have home advantage to make things easier.

Considering how dominant Nottinghamshire have been in the tournament so far, there shouldn't be any second thoughts in picking them as the best side of the tournament so far. Nottinghamshire is the only team that is still undefeated in the competition. They'll be playing a home-match against Derbyshire before getting to Leicester to play this one. As it stands now, they are sitting at the top of the North Group table with five wins aggregating to 12 points.
Handling pressure well has been the key for Notts' success. With the likes of Dan Christian, Alex Hales, Joe Clarke, and Samit Patel available at disposal, it doesn't come as a surprise considering the wealth of experience they have. Even though Joe Clarke has been the major scorer for them, the contributions from their other players have been vital, especially when Joe Clarke failed to fire.
It is clear from the tournament stastics that Nottinghshire's stronger suite is their batting. They have power-packed batting lineup that goes deep evident by the fact that Samit Patel comes into in the middle at eighth position. Their bowling however, although good enough, hasn't picked up enough wickets, and that is something that they'd like to improve upon before the knockouts. Jake Ball and Luke Fletcher have picked up 18 wickets between them, but have been expensive.
Nottinghamshire are coming off a heartening win over Derbyshire, surviving a scare as the Falcons failed to close the match despite coming close. The lack of depth in their bowling was apparent in that match as well as Notts failed to capitalize on the two early wickets that they picked to put Derbyshire on the back foot.
All in all, apart from a few chinks in their bowling, there's hardly anything that doens't seem to be going well for the Notts. Considering the form they have been in, it would take a brilliant effort from any team to stop Notts' rampage. They'd be looking to get better results with the ball in the upcoming match and it will be interesting to see how they approach it.
