Both the teams competing in this match, Yorkshire and Leicestershire, have not had a good start to their Vitality T20 Blast 2019 campaign. Their first match was rained out and they both ended up losing their second match by a comfortable margin.
The T20 Blast 2019 is almost always closely contested and a bad start can be the difference between getting to the quarter-final stage or just falling short.
We felt there were some major mistakes in the manner in which Yorkshire utilized its resources while Leicestershire’s batting came under pressure. There are weaknesses for both teams to work on and try to come out ahead in this match.
Leicestershire vs Yorkshire Vitality T20 Blast 2019 is going to be played at Grace Road, Leicester on the 23rd of July 2019.
There was a lot of concern about Leicestershire’s batting before the tournament began and it soon became clear why. Batting first against Birmingham, Leicestershire’s batting got off to the worst start imaginable.
They lost three wickets in the opening over and there was never any coming back from that start.
Colin Ackerman, Harry Dearden, Lewis Hill, and Ben Mike made an attempt to try and get some life back in the inning but neither of them could go on to convert their start into a big score.
Leicestershire has one of the weakest batting lineups in the entire Vitality T20 Blast 2019. If Mark Cosgrove and Colin Ackerman don’t score runs, that too at a good strike-rate, then Leicestershire is always going to suffer.
Only 115 to defend was not going to be able to give Leicestershire’s bowlers a chance but not one of them looked impressive in that short duration.
Callum Parkinson was the pick of the bowlers but he is not going to be a real threat to a strong batting lineup either.
Mark Cosgrove, Neil Dexter, Arron Lilley, Colin Ackermann, Lewis Hill, Harry Dearden, Aadil Ali, Ben Mike, Dieter Klein, Callum Parkinson, Chris Wright.
We cannot for the life of us understand why Yorkshire would choose to send Nicholas Pooran to bat at number seven and give him just a handful of deliveries to face. There is no justification for keeping you best T20 batsman, your overseas player whom you have selected to win you matches, in the hut for as long a time as that.
Pooran could have easily come in to bat at number three, four or even opened the batting.
Hopefully, Yorkshire will learn from its mistakes and set a better batting order in this match because at the moment all its resources are just being wasted.
Adam Lyth showed some good form while Jonathan Tattersall also got a useful 39 not out.
Jordan Thompson scored a fifty coming in late and saved Yorkshire from collapsing completely. It appears as if Yorkshire if trying to go too hard and losing its wickets I the process. There is nothing wrong with attacking in a T20 match but there has to be some plan behind it and not just wild slogging.
Still, Yorkshire has the batting to be able to completely dominate Leicestershire.
The Yorkshire bowling was put under pressure by the Derbyshire batsmen in the previous match. David Willey, Dominic Bess, Josh Poysden, and everyone else was unable to get the wickets when it was needed and went for plenty of runs too.
The previous match was the first match that Yorkshire actually played and we sense some starting troubles that should have been worked out in this match.
Adam Lyth, Tom Kohler-Cadmore, David Willey, Harry Brook, GS Ballance, Nicholas Pooran, Jordan Thompson, TT Bresnan, Dominic Bess, MW Pillans, Duanne Olivier.
The team wins the toss is going to want to bat first. The pitch is flat and getting runs on the board might be the right way to go.

Leicestershire ve Yorkshire is going to be played at Grace Road, Leicester. The weather forecast for match day is pretty decent. We should have a sunny day and there is next to no chance of rain.
The pitch at Grace Road is flat and good for batting. It is a little bit slower at the start of the season and then tends to firm up as the groundsman keeps working on it throughout the tournament. A score of around 170 should be considered par for the surface.
Yorkshire lost its previous match because of poor tactics while Leicestershire seems to be outmatched against Birmingham. We fear the home team is once again going to find itself outside its depth in this contest.
Bet on Yorkshire to win.
