NOT Team News

After an awful start in this year’s T20 Blast which saw Nottinghamshire lose all five of their opening games, Joe Clarke’s side have turned their form around and come into this clash against their local rivals Leicestershire looking to extend their unbeaten run to four matches.

NOT Team Batting

Batting first against Derbyshire Falcons in their last game here at Trent Bridge, 47 runs from 28 balls at the top of the order from captain Clarke and 31 from keeper-batter Tom Moores were the main contributors. With Alex Hales now at the Sri Lanka Premier League, there will need to be at least one change to the batting line up.

NOT Team Bowling

Nottinghamshire’ bowlers have found some good rhythm in recent games and this was evident against the Falcons when they restricted them to 165/8 when chasing 174 for victory. Ben Lister and Olly Stone are likely to take the new ball in this match.

NOT Team Form

Nottinghamshire did not win any of their opening five matches but have won two of their last three.

Nottinghamshire Predicted Playing 11

Benjamin Martindale, Joe Clarke (c), Haseeb Hameed, Jack Haynes, Tom Moores (wk), Matthew Montgomery, Lyndon James, Liam Patterson-White, Calvin Harrison, Olly Stone, Ben Lister

LEI Team News

It has been a very strong T20 Blast for Leicestershire so far this season and they were involved in a very exciting game against Northamptonshire Steelbacks last time which ended as a tie. A win in this fixture could see them move into the top two of the North Group.

LEI Team Batting

One of the main reasons for Leicestershire’ success has been the top order strength of opener Rishi Patel and captain Peter Handscomb who put on 80 runs for the second wicket in the last game. Louis Kimber will bat at number four and has been in fantastic form across all formats.

LEI Team Bowling

There are plenty of bowling options in Leicestershire’ unit and we can expect to see Josh Hull opening with Wiaan Mulder in this game. Scott Currie and Lewis Goldsworthy have both been in strong form ahead of this fixture at Trent Bridge.

LEI Team Form

Leicestershire come into this game with only one defeat from their last four matches.

Leicestershire Predicted Playing 11

Rishi Patel, Sol Budinger, Peter Handscomb (c), Louis Kimber, Wiaan Mulder, Ben Mike, Ben Cox (wk), Ian Holland, Lewis Goldsworthy, Scott Currie, Josh Hull

🏆 Nottinghamshire vs Leicestershire Prediction
