LEI vs YOR Team Previews
Leicestershire has been one of the worst-performing teams in the tournament. They have recorded just a single win in the competition so far out of the six games they played. After getting a victory in their last match they will be looking to draw inspiration from the victory and put together a winning streak. This victory in their last match must have worked a miracle for their morale and rejuvenated the team somewhat. After they put the opposition into bat after winning the toss, the Leicestershire bowlers did a good job of restricting their opponents.
The Durham team ended up setting a modest total of 168 runs on the board for the loss of 6 wickets. The Leicestershire team succeeded in chasing down the score by losing just 3 wickets within 18 overs. This solid 3-wicket win was achieved on 4th June at Chester-Le-Street. The Durham batting did not get off to a particularly good start losing three wickets relatively early. But there was a good partnership after that, between the wicketkeeper-batsman Ollie Robinson and Ashton Turner that realized 80 runs for the 4th wicket.
Josh Hull was the pick of the bowlers for Leicestershire picking up 3 wickets for 35 runs. Naveen-ul-Haq also contributed to the total picking up 2 wickets for 35 runs from his 4 overs. Apart from these two, the fast bowler Naseem Shah picked up one wicket for 28 runs. The Leicestershire top-order batsmen got their team off to a good start. However, it was an unbeaten partnership for the 4th wicket that got the Leicestershire team to the target with 2 overs to spare. Colin Ackermann scored 33 runs while Louis Kimber put together 55 runs from 29 balls with 3 sixes and 4 fours.

The Yorkshire outfit has now registered 3 wins in a row in the competition. They have succeeded in beating Notts, Lancashire, and Derbyshire in their last 3 games. Yorkshire won the toss in their last game against Derbyshire and put their opposition into bat. Derbyshire set a target of 166 runs for the loss of 8 wickets. The Yorkshire outfit chased down the set target within 18.2 overs with 7 wickets to spare. This North Group encounter was played in Leeds. The Derbyshire team while batting first lost some early wickets.
After the loss of early wickets, there was a huge partnership between Haider Ali and Wayne Madsen that took the Derbyshire total to a decent one. Haider Ali scored 74 runs from 47 balls with 4 sixes and 4 fours. Madsen scored his 44 runs from 26 balls with 2 sixes and 3 fours. But after these two were dismissed the later-order batters could not accelerate and they ended up setting a modest total rather than a huge one that appeared possible at one stage. The pick of the bowlers for Yorkshire was Ben Mike. He collected 3 scalps for 39 runs from his 4 overs.
Other bowlers that did a reasonable job for Yorkshire were David Wiese, Jordan Thompson, Matthew Revis, and Jafer Chohan. They all picked up a wicket apiece. Dom Bess bowled economically and was the only bowler that did not pick a wicket for Yorkshire. The Yorkshire outfit was off to a flying start with their openers Adm Lyth and Dawid Malan putting together an 83-run partnership for the first wicket from 9.3 overs. Dawid Malan scored 81 runs from 57 balls with 3 sixes and 9 fours. Malan was supported in his efforts by David Wiese during the closing stages of the inning with 30 from 21 balls.
