DUR vs LEI Team Previews


Durham has surprised everyone with the start they have made in their Vitality T20 Blast 2023 season. They are displaying a significant improvement compared to their below-par performance last year. The newfound confidence their players are showing is amazing. This confidence has already translated into three wins so far in the competition. Even though they had to endure a loss against Nottinghamshire, the game was a closely contested affair. Durham had a terrible season last year and as a result, they entered this year's competition as underdogs.

Durham finished in second-last position in the points tally for the North Group last year. They had to take 11 losses and just 3 wins in the league stages of the competition. But they have come to grips with the situation this year and seem to have turned things around. They are a much-improved team this year as they have already managed to record wins against Yorkshire, Lancashire, and Northamptonshire. They also had to accept a defeat at the hands of Notts. The top batters this season for Durham have been their skipper Alex Lees and Graham Clark

Lees and Clark have managed to accumulate 168 and 157 runs respectively in the competition. As far as the Durham bowling attack is concerned, the leading wicket-takers for them have been Ben Raine and Nathan Sowter. All-in-all the team is showing a lot of confidence this year compared to last season. The Durham skipper Lees has been responsible for providing stability and consistency to the Durham batting order. He also hit the ball a long way and can also anchor the innings if required. This provides a good opportunity for the batter at the other end to get settled.

Leicestershire Foxes on the other hand are facing several heart-breaking losses including the one against Northamptonshire in their last encounter. Their journey so far in the competition has been far from ideal. They have had to endure a string of 4 losses in a row. The latest defeat at the hands of Northamptonshire would have dented their psyche further. All this drubbing would have left them in a tight spot in the league stages of the competition. Even last year they provided an average performance by finishing in the 6th spot in the group stages of the competition.

Although they finished in 6th spot in their performance last year, it was a much better one than Durham. They recorded 8 wins and 6 losses during the competition. Their present performance has been even worse than the one they provided last year. But the team has some good match-winners in their ranks. The batting line-up includes people such as Nick Welch and Rishi Patel who are both standing out as their top batters. Their bowling attack comprises of bowlers such as Callum Parkinson who can trouble the best of batsmen at times.

Although they are off to a terrible start, Leicestershire players will have every opportunity to turn things around and make a comeback in the tournament. With five losses in a row, the Leicestershire outfit has its work cut out for them in the upcoming encounters in the competition. Rishi Patel has emerged as the top batter for Leicestershire. He appears to be improving after every game. He did make a sluggish start to the season but he is now beginning to look good. He scored 44 runs from 28 balls against Derbyshire.
