This should be the second match for both teams in the Vitality T20 Blast 2019 but their opening match was abandoned without a ball being bowled. Essentially, we know as much about the two sides competing in this match as we did before the tournament began.
Birmingham is going to be taking on Leicestershire in this match which both teams will be keen to get on the field and play, irrespective of the results!
Both these teams come into the Vitality T20 Blast with some concerns about their T20 skills. The Birmingham Bears seem to have a good bowling lineup but no real big hitters in the side while Leicestershire ‘s batting lineup is quite dependent on a few players as well.
There are real holes in both sides to be exploited. The question then is which team will end up doing it better?
Birmingham vs Leicestershire is going to be played at Edgbaston, Birmingham on the 21st July 2019.
The biggest strength that the Birmingham Bears have in the T20 Blast 2019 is their spin attack. Jeetan Patel and Ashton Agar are excellent T20 cricketers that are often underrated to the opposition’s peril.
Jeetan Patel has become one of the most consistent and economical bowlers on the county circuit while Ashton Agar brings a left-arm angle and some very good ball hitting abilities to the table.
The batting for Birmingham is going to be dependent on Ian Bell and Sam Hain.
Sam Hain is the one player we are picking out to really stamp his authority on the T20 Blast. Ian Bell was in brilliant form during the longer format games but will need to up his game at the top of the order for Birmingham in T20 cricket.
Playing at Edgbaston is another big advantage since the opposing teams can be quite intimidated to come and perform under conditions which are pretty unique in England.
This matchup against Leicestershire is not something that Birmingham is going to mind and will have singled out this match as a potential easy win early in the campaign.
Ed Pollock, Michael Burgess , Sam Hain, Adam Hose, Will Rhodes, Liam Banks, Ashton Agar, Alex Thomson, Jeetan Patel, Henry Brookes, FH Edwards.
A number of good T20 players have the Leicestershire Foxes from their previous season and this is why we believe that T20 Blast 2019 is going to be a struggle for the side.
They are going to be without Ben Raine, their best bowler, Mohammad Nabi, and Cameron Delport, their best batsman.
They have the services of Mohammad Abbas as their overseas player. While there is no doubt that Abbass is the genuine article in the longest format of the game, his utility in T20 cricket is a bit questionable.
The batting also looks a bit too dependent on mark Cosgrove and Colin Ackerman.
They are both very good T20 batsmen but Cosgrove has never been the most consistent and Ackerman is certainly getting on in age. A look at the batting stocks available apart from these two players does not inspire much confidence.
Harry Dearden, Neil Dexter, Colin Ackermann, Mark Cosgrove, Arron Lilley, Lewis Hill, Ben Mike, Callum Parkinson, Dieter Klein, Gavin Griffiths, Chris Wright.
The team that wins the toss is likely to want to bat first

Birmingham vs Leicestershire Vitality T20 Blast 2019 is going to be played at Edgbaston, Birmingham. A dry day with some clouds around during the latter half is predicted for match day.
We should have a match and both the teams will finally be able to get their T20 Blast campaign on the way.
The pitch at Birmingham is going to be good for batting with some help for the spinners as the game progresses. The 50 over matches here were characterized by the pitch slowing remarkably in the second half. That is not something we expect in T20 cricket but captains may still want to play it safe and bat first.
Neither of these two sides is a very strong T20 unit. There are clear weaknesses in both camps. Home advantage and a slightly better batting lineup gives the advantage to Birmingham in our opinion.
Bet on the Birmingham Bears to win.
