LEI vs NOT Dream11 Match Predictions

T20 Vitality Blast, 2018

Leicestershire vs Nottinghamshire, North Group

As the caravan of the Vitality Blast rolls on, Leicestershire will take on Nottinghamshire what is expected to be a riveting encounter at Grace Road in Leicester.

After pulling off a thrilling three-wicket win over Northamptonshire in their tournament opener, Leicestershire ran into a rampaging Durham unit on Friday night as they failed to chase down 154 in 20 overs. After Zak Chappell (3-23) had restricted Durham to 7-153 in 20 overs, openers Neil Dexter (35) and Cameron Delport (17) got LEI to a good start, having accumulated 42 runs for the first wicket. But Durham’s talismanic spinner Imran Tahir accounted for both of the openers and started a stunning collapse as the Lightings eventually ended up with 120 in 18.3 overs, 33 runs adrift of the target.

They’ll face Nottinghamshire who is coming off an astounding 58-run win over Northamptonshire thanks to a swashbuckling 40-ball-113 by skipper Daniel Christian. Christian came in with his side reeling at 4-81 in 9.4 overs and proceeded to smash the NOR bowlers to all corners of Northampton. Christian finally finished with 113, an innings which included nine sixes to take his team to 6-219 in 20 overs. Christian’s batting effort was matched by his bowlers as the likes of Gurney (3-30), Fletcher (3-21) and Mullaney (2-29) helped NOT defend the target with ease, as Northamptonshire despite Ben Duckett’s 88 fell 55 runs short of the target.
