NOR vs LEI Match Prediction - Jun 02, 2023

After finishing 7th in the North Group in 2022 with a 6-6 record (2 N/R), Northamptonshire may not have picked up the ideal start to the 2023 season. The team is currently 1-3 and is still looking for a big spark to get their cricket back on track. T

hings aren’t going much better for Leicestershire, who are currently 0-3 and at least hoping to get better than 6th place from 2022. Both teams, it seems, are desperate for a win and hopefully the play on the pitch displays this desire. Northamptonshire vs. Leicestershire will take place at the County Ground, Northampton, on June 2nd. Visit here to see all the betting odds for various cricket matches in the T20 Blast.

NOR vs LEI Team Previews


You’d be forgiven for thinking that batters Saif Zaib and Chris Lynn would be the best performers for Northamptonshire, as both were great in 2022, but you’d be wrong. Vasconcelos has been huge for the side, as he’s been reliable at the crease and made 154 runs already. Willey is the next best with 101, but Zaib and Lynn are way down the list, which may suggest why the team isn’t winning as much.

In terms of bowling, Taylor is continuing his solid end to 2022 and keeps on picking up wickets, with five so far this season. Aussie Andrew Tye also has five, but there’s no excuse for the terrible loss to Durham, whereby not a single bowler earned a wicket, letting the opposition cruise to 0/141.

Northamptonshire Playing 11

Chris Lynn, Emilio Gay, Josh Cobb, David Willey, Saif Zaib, Lewis McManus, Tom Taylor, Andrew Tye, Ben Sanderson, James Sales, Freddie Heldreich.


Let’s just say that when your top batter has a total score of 77 runs (highest of 42), then you know your team is in trouble. Patel is doing what he can for the team, but he’s barely getting any help, especially not from Lilley or Ackermann, who continues to struggle at the crease. Lilley should be averaging nearly 30 runs per game, but he’s yet to get past 17 runs so far.

The bowling isn’t much better than the batting, as Parkinson is the only one to have a bit of consistency with a total of 5/73. Ahmed is giving the team barely anything, with just three wickets and a habit of giving up far too many runs (105).

Leicestershire Playing 11

Lewis Hill, Nick Welch, Rishi Patel, Colin Ackermann, Louis Kimber, Rehan Ahmed, Harry Swindells, Callum Parkinson, Naveen ul Haq, Naseem Shah, Josh Hull.

Pitch and Conditions

This is a pitch that batters usually like because the bounce is predictable and fairly low. Scores of around 220 are common and it won’t be a surprise if at least one batter gets a century or at least close to one. Spinners can get some movement, but pace bowlers will have to get used to seeing the ball fly around the ground.

NOR vs LEI Betting Tips

Most would pick Leicestershire because of the odds, but we just can’t trust them right now. The team is in disarray and cannot find any focus with regards to a steady batting lineup or lethal bowling attack. Northamptonshire is not exactly lighting things up spectacularly at 1-3, but we have a lot of faith in Vasconcelos’ batting to help drive them to a win.

Moreover, Tye and Taylor are both highly experienced bowlers who can deliver on the biggest stage. Northamptonshire have typically done well against Leicestershire in the past and should be able to handle them easily.

Bet on Northamptonshire to win.
