Durham would look for another winning performance in the English One Day Cup 2019 campaign when they take on Leicestershire Foxes at Riverside Ground at Chester-le-Street on Friday.
Durham were too good for their counterpart in their opening game of the tournament, with Cameron Bancroft slamming 151 runs and Michael Richardson also registering the triple-figure mark. With the ball, Matt Salisbury and Matty Potts bowled with great control to bowl the opposition out.
Meanwhile, Leicestershire were humbled by Yorkshire in their opening game of the tournament. The Foxes could only manage 166 in reply to Vikings’ 379 and were handed a 213-run loss. They would want to put a better effort here and get their campaign up and running.
