In the upcoming fixture of the Royal One Day Cup, we have Northamptonshire hosting Leicestershire for a crucial game of the tournament. Both the teams have had a mediocre County Championship and both the teams would want to change things around by starting off with a win in this game. It remains to see which team can prove to be the better team in this fixture.
The clash will take place tomorrow May 17 at County Ground in Northampton and will begin at 03:30 PM Local.
So, let’s move forwards to NOR vs LEI team news and NOR vs LEI dream11 prediction.
The home team is without Nathan Buck, Rob Newton and Richard Gleeson because of their injury concerns ahead of this game. A few changes are expected in the playing XI for the home side.
On the other hand, Leicestershire’s Ben Raine is a complete package as he can bat and bowl like a professional and is the best chance of the away team if they are to win this game. Ned Eckersley and Zak Chappell are available for selection for this game. Dieter Klein is expected to be benched in this game for the away side.

Both the teams are expected to make one or two changes. The probable NOR vs LEI playing 11 is listed below.
For the away team, Ben Raine is the only player who can turn around the game for them in limited over cricket so he is very crucial to the away team if they are to win this game.
For the home team, Old man Steven Crook remains so far the fiercest batsman for the home team in this game with Doug Bracewell backing him with an all round performance to support their team.
As per our NOR vs LEI Dream11 predictions, the hosts will be favorite.
In wicketkeeper, we prefer Ben Brown because he is not only a dependent wicket keeper but he can score big as well.
In batsmen, Luke Wells, Stiaan van Zyl, Luke Wright and Zak Crawley are a must have choices.
In bowling, Ollie Robinson, David Weise, Matt Henry and Darren Stevens will be crucial.
